Ozzy Osbourne wants to go home. And, it seems, Ozzy Is Moving Back To England. The iconic Black Sabbath rocker said he plans to return to his native England because he doesn’t want to “die in crazy America.”
“I’m fed up with people getting killed every day,” the 73-year-old singer told interviewers. “God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert … It’s fucking crazy.”

Osbourne said he plans to move from his longtime Beverly Hills home to a gigantic estate in Buckinghamshire.
“I’m English. I want to be back. But, saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go,” he said. “But, no. It’s just time for me to come home.”
His spouse echoed his disillusionment with their adopted home. “It isn’t the United States of America at all,” Sharon Osbourne told the outlet. “Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.” She also shot down speculation that the move stemmed from Osbourne’s advancing Parkinson’s disease.
The pair have put their palatial Hancock Park home up for sale for $18 million.
The Black Sabbath frontman recently returned to the stage in his native Birmingham after undergoing major surgery. He has been plagued with mobility problems after a 2019 fall that aggravated a neck injury.
