Donny Osmond Turned Down a Publicity Stunt Drug Bust: "It Really Would Have Worked."

Even though he was a star by the time he was five years old, Donny Osmond was always considered too clean and wholesome for many rock critics. Yet along with his brothers and sister Marie, Osmond has managed to stay relevant in pop culture for nearly five decades. Donny and Marie's show in Las Vegas has been enormously successful for several years and now the duo bring their Christmas-themed show to our area for the first time in ages.

From his home in Provo, Utah, and in anticipation of Wednesday's show at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie, Osmond spoke with DC9 about his busy work schedule and the pros and cons of being a former teen idol.
