Well, the world is officially coming to an end. Former ‘Black Sabbath” frontman Ozzy Osbourne has been added to Rolling Stone magazine’s lineup of columnists (foxnews.com). Can you guess in what arena Osbourne will be providing insight? Nope, not music. He’s going to be a health columnist. You heard me.
I had to stop laughing before I could write this article. I mean, the guy seems like a sweetheart, but if you’ve ever watched the reality show ‘The Osbournes’, you know that Ozzy appears to be the last man on earth who should give advice on anything related to one’s health. Let’s not even talk about the man’s history with drugs.
After reading the post on Fox News, it seems that we can expect the usual off-the-wall remarks from the rocker. Don’t hope for the type of stuff that Dr. Oz, no pun intended, brings to the table. No, no, there’s a new Oz in town, and he’s got all kinds of non-euphemisms to keep readers entertained, if nothing else. Ozzy will definitely tell it like it is.
In fact, his way of speaking could almost be compared to the new show ‘$#*! My Dad Says’. Osbourne is just that forthcoming, but with a little less severity. He is the classic definition of the saying ‘it is what it is’. His contribution to Rolling Stone will no doubt be intuitive and heartfelt. That’s the only way Ozzy knows how to be!
With wife Sharon by his side (think ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and ‘The Talk’), perhaps something useful will flow from Ozzy’s pen. I don’t think he even knows how to use a computer, as he was unable to work the remote for the television, as I recall. The man is a musical genius – but please don’t take his health advice to heart. As they say on television, consult with your doctor first!
