Ozzy Osbourne Can't Stand Living In America For Another Day

Ozzy Osbourne says his American dream is coming to an end.

While the Black Sabbath frontman and his family's L.A. escapades brought them reality TV fame on MTV's The Osbournes, the rock legend says he’s ready to move back to his native England. In an interview with the Observer, the 73-year-old icon cited gun violence in the United States as a key factor in his decision to leave.

“Everything’s f***ing ridiculous there," Osbourne told the U.K. newspaper. "I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert. … It’s f***ing crazy."

Plagued by health issues in recent years — including a Parkinson's diagnosis, two staph infections, pneumonia, COVID-19, and, most recently, surgery this June to remove metal plates that had been pressing up against his spine since a 2019 procedure on his neck — Osbourne noted, "I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in f**king Forest Lawn."

"I’m English," Osborne added. "I want to be back. But saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go. ... But, no, it’s just time for me to come home.”

Wife Sharon Osbourne offered her reasons, for putting the family's L.A. home on the market.

"It’s just time," she said. "America has changed so drastically. It isn’t the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.”

Sharon has been working in the U.K. since being fired last year from CBS’s The Talk following an internal investigation into her on-air dispute with co-host Sheryl Underwood. During the disagreement, Osbourne defended British talk show host Piers Morgan, whose criticism of Meghan Markle had been accused of being racist in nature.

Sharon has since spoken about how her career took a turn in the States after being let go from The Talk.

"My phone as far as my TV career here was nonexistent, not one call. Noth-ing,” she said in April. "In England and Australia, it never changed. Here it was like I was dead."

Osbourne recently visited the U.K. for the first time in eight years. Just two months after his latest surgery — he returned to his hometown of Birmingham to perform his hit "Paranoid" at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony alongside Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi. According to the Osbournes, they initially declined the opportunity but felt more hopeful about Ozzy's health following his appearance at Comic-Con in July.
