Osbourne Wants Musical Career Acknowledged
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne would prefer the public knew him for his music
career rather than his reality TV show.
The controversial British rocker has been amazed by the media attention
since the MTV documentary on his family life was first aired in 2002 - but
wants fans to acknowledge his musical legacy which includes being the front man
of Black Sabbath.
Osbourne, 56, says, "One minute, I was a rock 'n' roll star, the
next I'm on the f**king front page of every magazine in every f**king
country and I'm being chased around.
"In Boston this woman came up to me and said, 'Ozzy Osbourne. What
are you doing in Boston?'
"And I said, 'A show', and this f**king woman was like, 'A show?
What kind of a show?' and I said, 'Rock 'n' roll.'
"And she goes, 'Wow, do you do that as well?' Yeah, like I've only
been doing it for 35 years."
