A campaign to make rocker Ozzy Osbourne a knight is gaining steam after his daughter Kelly threw her weight behind it.

Public support for Australian super-fan Helen Maidiotis’ campaign has mounted since Kelly backed it online, writing on Twitter.com, “I think this really needs to happen!” alongside a link to the project’s Facebook.com page.

The petition had received 13,880 signatures on Tuesday, around 6,000 short of its 20,000 target.
