Ozzy Osbourne has made the decision to move back to the United Kingdom after living in Los Angeles for more than two decades.
The Osbournes’ California property is already listed for sale, and their English home is getting ready for their arrival in early 2023.
Living in America right now, in Sharon Osbourne’s words, is “a very bizarre place to live.”
Ozzy, 73, has experienced a number of health problems over the past few years, including Parkinson’s diagnosis, neck surgery, a bathroom fall, two staph infections, and blood clots.
While all of these conditions would be enough to make anyone want to move back home, Sharon is adamant that this is not the case with Ozzy.
“I anticipated that reaction from others. It isn’t. Just give it time. America has undergone such a profound transformation. It certainly isn’t the United States of America. There’s nothing unified about it.”
Ozzy had a unique way of articulating his feelings about residing in America.
“That place is f*cking absurd in every way. The daily killings of people are getting on my nerves. How many people have been shot in school shootings is unknown to God. And then there was the concert shooting in Vegas. It’s really insane,” he told.
And Ozzy wants to escape from more than just horrific massacres. Black Sabbath’s lead singer wants to get away from Hollywood’s flash and glam.
“”I also don’t want to pass away in America. I don’t want to be buried in Forest Lawn, for the love of God.
At Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Memorial Park, a lot of famous people are buried.
“I am English. I plan to return. Having said that, I would move to Timbuktu if my wife insisted that we do. No, it’s simply time for me to return home.”
Ozzy visited his homeland earlier this month, where he met up with Black Sabbath and delivered a performance at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
It was not just his first visit to the nation in almost a decade, but it was also his first public appearance.
Six months ago, he was first approached, but he turned down the invitation. However, the team from the Commonwealth Games got in touch with Ozzy’s management when he appeared at Comic Con in San Diego in July and “looked fine.”
While first declaring, “I can’t f*cking perform,” he later changed his mind and agreed to the invitation after being given six days’ notice.
While the iconic performer has no plans for additional shows, a studio is being built on the Osbournes’ estate in Buckinghamshire, and another album with Tony Iommi is possible. But on September 9, Ozzy will first release his solo record, “Patient Number 9.”
