Aimee Osbourne finds fame ''intimidating'' and ''scary''.

Aimee, the eldest daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and TV personality Sharon Osbourne, is embarking on a career as a singer, but admitted she is apprehensive about becoming famous even though her family have taught her what to expect.

She said: ''There's not really many surprises as far as what it's going to take for me and has taken for me to get this point.

''But at the same time, this is still intimidating at times and scary, and I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. You get overwhelmed, then I remember I'm doing something that makes me the happiest, that I can feel is the best and truest thing for me to be doing for myself.''

The 31-year-old musician turned down the opportunity to become a star when she refused to appear in her family's raucous reality show 'The Osbournes' when it aired on MTV between 2002 and 2005. Her younger siblings Jack and Kelly became household names but each developed destructive behavioural habits after finding fame as teenagers.

However, Aimee - who records music under the moniker ARO - explained her family have been hugely supportive of her decisions, and are ''excited'' about her new music.

She continued: ''They're really happy and excited. And I think because of the delays and because they know there is a part of me that is so private, they, as parents, might have had doubts that I was doing the right thing. But it's been great to put their minds totally at ease that I'm doing the right thing for myself.''
