Ozzy Osbourne Reneges: I’m American Now

For those of you still paying attention to the ancient rocker, Ozzy Osbourne has seemingly had a change of heart.

Just five short months ago, Osbourne said that both he and wife Sharon were headed back to the UK. But apparently, the prospect of leaving wasn’t that appealing after all.

“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.”

Meanwhile, Sharon isn’t too happy with the downfall of the Golden State.

“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.”

Fox News adds:

In a candid interview with The Guardian in August, Ozzy blasted the U.S., where he and his wife Sharon have resided for much of their adult lives.

Osbourne, who underwent major surgery in June, said of the United States, “Everything’s f—ing 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—ing crazy.”
The Black Sabbath member also shared, “I don’t want to die in America… I’m English. I want to be back.” The 73-year-old rocker was raised in Birmingham, England.
Sharon echoed her husband’s sentiments. “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.”

We’ve heard this all before.

The threats from celebrities who promise to leave the country are, unfortunately, idol promises we just can’t rely on. It’s too bad, really.

I recall when Whoopi Goldberg promised to leave the country if Trump were elected. Honestly, the view would be much better without her mug. Snoop Dogg also swore he was moving to Canada, but apparently the legalization of marijuana was enough to change his mind. Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Schumer, Cher, and Barbara Streisand all joined the chorus. Yet, once Trump took office, they all stayed. Just like Osbourne, they know America is the best bet out there, even with Biden at the helm.

Luckily, after this red wave hits, America will be a much better place. We can finally get back to the kind of winning Trump introduced us to. Although I can’t make many promises for California, not unless they finally get Newsom out of their way. Hey, one can dream!
