During a recent interview with a radio show, Ozzy Osbourne talked about what he’s been up to in the past year, since the beginning of the lockdown, to which he responded by saying that firing his rifle in the garden of his Los Angeles mansion has been ‘good fun‘ while revealing that he’s been killing the animals that come into his garden.
As you know, Ozzy Osbourne is very famous for numerous reasons; as the iconic vocalist of Black Sabbath, with his solo career, and as a TV personality. However, he’s also famous for his infamous treatment of animals which had put him on the front-page headlines numerous times in the ’80s.
In 1981 – two years after being fired from Black Sabbath – Ozzy signed his first solo career record deal. He was going to attend a meeting with CBS Records executives in Los Angeles, to which he decided to bring three doves which he would release at the end of the meeting. However, as he got bored during the meeting and he bit off the head of one of the doves and spat it out in front of the interviewer.
Just one year later, in 1982 Ozzy shocked the whole world once again when he bit a bat head’s off during a concert, after a fan threw a dead bat on stage. There was also another incident that claimed that when the ‘Prince of Darkness’ had no cocaine left, he decided to snort a line of ants. After all these infamous instances, Ozzy had declared that he’s made ‘a lot of stupid things’ but that he’s learned from his mistakes.
However, his revelations during his most recent interview with a radio station seem to prove the opposite. As you know, Ozzy has been struggling with Parkinson’s disease for the past years, and it seems like he found a “remedy.” He said that when he’s in the house he feels like he’s never going to walk properly again, but when he goes out to his garden and fires his rifle, everything changes.
In the interview, Ozzy said that for the past year, he’s been working on his aim by practicing with his rifle and stated that while he couldn’t shoot at all in the beginning ‘now there are dead cats (and) birds every minute.’ This statement sparked outrage all around the world and people have been expecting a follow-up statement from the well-known metal star.
Here’s what he said during the interview about using guns:
“It gets me out of my head, man. When I am in my house, I worry I never am going to walk properly.
When I first started this thing, I could not shoot. Now there are dead cats (and) birds every minute.”
When asked about how the animals, including his dogs, react when he starts shooting, Osbourne said:
“They f*ck off.”
