Ozzy Osbourne sounds off about the Kardashians and… Christmas
OZZY OSBOURNE is unimpressed with reality TV stars the Kardashians — despite the fact it was his fly-on-the-wall MTV show that arguably paved the way for them.
Heavy metal star Osbourne, 69, told The Big Issue magazine: ‘I said to Sharon the other day, “What the f*** is the deal with these Kardashians? They don’t sing, they don’t act, they don’t do anything.”
‘She told me, “The trend now is that people want to be celebrities and make money for doing f****** nothing.”
‘I was like, “Oh.”‘
But the star claims not to have a beef with the glam clan, who have been airing their Keeping Up With The Kardashians show since 2007.
‘I don’t want to put them down, and if I was to start slagging them off they would say, “So what?”‘ said Ozzy.
‘Good luck to them, if they’re happy with it then I’m fine with that.’
But reflecting on his own reality show, The Osbournes, which first aired in 2002, he said: ‘It was totally raw, there was no script. We just did what we did and had the camera rolling.
‘Have a camera crew in your house for three years and you go a bit crazy!’
Osbourne said he was now ‘as normal as Ozzy Osbourne gets’.
‘I don’t drink, I don’t smoke tobacco, I don’t do drugs, I don’t womanise anymore,’ he said.
‘The amount of booze and drugs I was taking at one point, I couldn’t have survived.
‘I turn 70 on December 3 and how I got this far is a f****** miracle.’
The ex-Black Sabbath star also shed light on his Christmas plans.
‘I hate Christmas! I’m one of those bah humbug people…. I just have people coming up to me saying, “I love you,” and I’m like, “You don’t love me, you’ve just bloody met me so don’t say you love me, you’re a lying bastard!”
‘It makes me want to poke my eyes out,’ he said.
The Big Issue, sold by vendors to lift themselves out of poverty, is available to buy across the UK for £2.50.
