Ozzy's MTV rant
16:30 14 February 2005
Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he "hated" starring in 'The Osbournes'.
The rocker - who achieved worldwide stardom on the hit reality TV show, along with wife Sharon and two of his children, Jack and Kelly - admits he hated being filmed 24 hours a day and feeling like a puppet.
Amazingly Ozzy also admits he would happily give up all the wealth the MTV programme has brought him to have his old life back.
He told Britain's Classic Rock magazine: "At the end of the day with 'The Osbournes' I hated it. For all the money we have, the way we live, the cars we drive, the first-class travel we take, I'd gladly give it up to be simple old Ozzy again."
Ozzy, who originally shot to fame as the wild lead singer of British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, also said he feared the programme has completely ruined his credibility with rock fans.
He added: "I probably shattered eight million dreams in one airing."
Last week, daughter Kelly claimed fame and fortune had ruined her life, saying: "Being rich and famous is my biggest problem. Growing up in public sucks. It's hard enough being judged by family, never mind the whole world."
