In a new interview with the Observer, Ozzy Osbourne has opened up about his decision to relocate from Los Angeles to the U.K.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Ozzy Osbourne and his wife/manager Sharon left Los Angeles and returned to their native United Kingdom due to rising taxes in California.
He now said that he was “fed up” with the number of mass shootings in the USA. He also said he does not want to die in the U.S. and be among the many stars buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
When asked by Observer why they’re coming home after so long in California, Sharon insisted it had nothing to do with Ozzy‘s health. “I knew people would think that,” she said. “It’s not. It’s just time. 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.”
Ozzy added: “Everything’s f**king ridiculous there. 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**king crazy.
“And I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in fu**ing Forest Lawn. I’m English. 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.”
Ozzy Osbourne‘s new album, Patient Number 9, will be released on September 9. You can pre-order the album at Amazon here.
