Commonwealth Games: Ozzy Osbourne performs onstage
Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he would much rather stay in the US despite family plans to move back to the UK. Just three months after announcing he and Sharon were moving, the Black Sabbath star appeared to be having second thoughts about the move.
The 73-year-old previously shared his frustrations about living in the US, saying he was “fed up” of the crime and violence across the pond, adding he wanted to “escape the shootings”.
But it now appears the Paranoid hitmaker has had a change of heart as he disclosed his complaints about moving to the UK.
Ozzy predicts he will be left “bored s**tless” if he ends up spending much of his time in Britain.
Addressing the move in a new interview, the Birmingham-born star admittedly doesn’t miss UK life.
“I’m more of an American now. I love this country,” he told Revolver and predicts that back in the UK he’ll “go f***ing insane, bored s**tless.”
His comments come after the singer and his wife Sharon are returning to England with their 11 dogs.
According to the same publication, they have sold their house and are keeping a humble apartment in California.
They’re moving for tax reasons, and plan to spend half the year in England and half in the US.
Ozzy and Sharon have lived in Beverly Hills for more than 25 years, but have previously revealed their plan to move back to England.
They own a 120-year-old Grade II listed property in Buckinghamshire, called Welders House.
And as the United States have suffered a high number of shootings this year, Ozzy has had enough.
“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,” he told the Observer.

“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. I don’t want to be buried in f***ing Forest Lawn.”
He added: “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.”
Following his comments, the Mirror reports Ozzy made a bizzare U-turn branding himself an American.
“I’m American now,” he explained. “To be honest with you, if I had my way, I’d stay in America.”
The same publication added, the musician stated: “To be honest with you, I don’t want to go back [to England]. F**k that.”
Explaining the move in Consequence’s latest cover story on Monday, he said Sharon’s controversial exit from The Talk was also to blame for his US departure.
The 70-year-old television personality was ousted from programme after defending Piers Morgan’s criticism of Meghan Markle.
“When my wife got called a racist on [The Talk], she is absolutely not a racist,” Ozzy explained. “Her friend is Piers Morgan … She didn’t say, ‘I agree with him’.
“She just respected his ability to have freedom of speech. That’s all that she said. And she got a lot of flak from that, so we actually had to have f**king armed guards and all that.”
The couple have recently confirmed their move back to the UK has nothing to do with Ozzy’s recent health woes – he revealed he was living with Parkinson’s disease in 2020.
