Ozzy didn’t like being a reality TV star

Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that he didn’t especially enjoy starring in the reality TV show ‘The Osbournes’. Given we didn’t particularly enjoy watching it either, what was the point then? Oh yes, it made the family millions, ensured wife/manager Sharon celebrity status on par with her husband, and got two of their kids admission to the celebrity e-list. Job done.

Speaking to ITN, Ozzy said: “I didn’t like being on TV. My ego did for five minutes, but then it got old very quick. Be careful what you experiment with because sometimes it takes off. I began to get camera shy. When you have a camera crew living in your house all the time it takes its toll”.

Osbourne also denied rumours Johnny Depp would play the rocker in a biopic. Ozzy said: “I want to get an English person because I’m not American. I’d like to get a guy from Birmingham you know, an unknown actor”.
