TV Jack's E210,000 bum note.

Byline: PAUL MARTIN

REALITY TV star Jack Osbourne has turned down $210,000 to launch a rock career and follow in the footsteps of his dad Ozzy.

The 18-year-old was approached by a major record label but sent them packing saying he can't sing a note.

His sister Kelly has enjoyed a number of hits on the back of the world-wide success of the MTV show The Osbournes, which follows the ups and downs of their family life.

Jack explained: "I said to them not to even bother offering me the money because I can't sing.

"They wanted me to get a professional voice coach and then start writing songs - the money was ridiculous.

"But I said there's no point because even if they got me the best coach on the planet I can't sing.

"Kelly is a great singer and so is my dad but I didn't inherit the singing gene.

"I'm happier managing bands and plotting their rise to stardom. That's where I come into my own."
