Ozzy Osbourne claims that the gun violence in the US is the reason he is leaving
Despite the fact that Ozzy Osbourne has lived in California for almost three decades, the rock star has decided to return to his native United Kingdom.
Osbourne, Black Sabbath’s lead singer, told the Observer in an extensive interview that he and his wife Sharon are moving back to their Buckinghamshire home after spending more than 20 years in Los Angeles. Osbourne’s family life in California became well-known in the early 2000s because to the MTV reality series The Osbournes.
According to the Observer, he said that the prevalence of guns in the United States was a major factor in his decision to relocate permanently back to the United Kingdom.
Saying he was “fed up with people getting killed every day,” he was referring to the epidemic of gun violence in the United States. “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*g crazy.”
Not only did he not wish to pass away in the United States, but he also said as much. “I’m English. I want to be back.”
The Gun Violence Archive, which keeps track of such things, reported on Monday that there had been more than 440 mass shootings in the United States so far in 2022. 58 individuals were killed in the Las Vegas shooting that Osbourne mentioned, making it the deadliest mass shooting in United States history.
According to Sharon Osbourne, “America has changed so drastically” and now “nothing united about it.” Last year, she waded into controversial waters when she defended her friend Piers Morgan during an argument between Sheri Underwood and herself on an episode of their daytime talk show “The Talk,” Underwood later accused her of using racist and homophobic language, and she subsequently resigned from the show.
Earlier this year, Ozzy Osbourne gave the Mirror a different reason for wanting to leave: Osbourne reportedly told a UK tabloid in March, “the tax is getting too much” adding that he would miss Los Angeles but did not want to keep paying the high taxes he was subjected to in order to remain in the United States.
According to the Observer, the Osbournes will move back to the UK in February, where Ozzy has promised to keep making music. His upcoming solo album was recorded while he was dealing with multiple chronic illnesses, including Parkinson’s disease.
