Ozzy changes his tune on moving back to Europe: ‘I’m American now … f**k that’

Legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne doesn’t want to cross the pond after all, claiming he’s “American now” and would prefer to live in the U.S.

In August the lead singer, outraged social media when he declared America was “f****ing ridiculous,” with many responding “buh bye, Ozzy!”

“Everything’s f***ing ridiculous there,” the 73-year-old rocker told The Observer. “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.”

“And I don’t want to die in America,” Ozzy continued. “I don’t want to be buried in f**king Forest Lawn.”

While he doesn’t want Forest Lawn to be his final resting place, in a new interview Ozzy said he no longer wants to move back to his native United Kingdom.

“To be honest with you, if I had my way, I’d stay in America,” Ozzy admitted to Consequence magazine. “I’m American now… to be honest with you, I don’t want to go back. F— that.”

Ozzy has lived in L.A. for nearly four decades, raising his three children and building his Black Sabbath empire with wife Sharon, who supported the full-time move to England, citing political and economic insecurity as reasons for the relocation.

“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.”

While Ozzy might prefer to stay in sunny California, responses to comments by Sharon made it difficult, according to Consequence.

“They both insist that it was a necessary step after Sharon was criticized for defending her friend Piers Morgan online and on the CBS morning show ‘The Talk’ following some problematic comments he had made about Meghan Markle. (Sharon left the show soon after.) The decision, according to Sharon, was made even easier by the fact that ‘California is not what it once was,'” the magazine reported.

“When I first came here, I thought I was in heaven,” Sharon said. “In the ‘70s, if you loved music, this was the place to be. It’s not that hub anymore. It’s not exciting anymore. It hasn’t gone sideways, it’s gone down. It’s not a fun place to live. It’s dangerous here. Every big city’s got crime, but I don’t feel safe here. Neither does Ozzy.”

In recent years, the former Black Sabbath frontman has battled “life-altering” surgeries and a war with Parkinson’s disease — a diagnosis he received in 2003.

The physical limitations didn’t stop the so-called “Prince of Darkness” from returning to the stage in August for the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in his Birmingham hometown.

Prior to that, Ozzy performed a farewell tour, having played at Ozzfest in Inglewood in December 2018.

With health complications, a horrific neck injury, and COVID-19 lockdowns, the No More Tours II shows were canceled in 2019 and 2020, and are now set to resume in 2023, according to the Daily Mail.
