Ozzy Osbourne’s Career Advice For Lady Gaga

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Absence makes the heart grow fonder – at least, that’s what rock legend Ozzy Osbourne had to say regarding Lady Gaga’s “overexposed” career.
“I do think Lady Gaga should take a break for a little while. She’s getting to be too much,” Ozzy told Us Weekly in a telephone interview last week. “And she doesn’t watch the exposure of her clothes. She’s just too overexposed.”
The 62-year-old Brit believes that while the Princess of pop has the chops to be the next queen, her talent is often overshadowed by her attention-seeking get-ups (case in point — meat dress).
“She could be the next Madonna if she played her cards right. I like her, but I’m getting a bit sick of her,” Ozzy told the mag. “When I turn on the TV, I see her wearing another lampshade or whatever… I think she’s really, really entertaining, but she’s doing a bit too much. Every day it is something else.
“The specialness of her is gonna get killed if she doesn’t calm it down,” he added. “…Someone should whisper in her ear and say back off for a couple of months — let people gain interest back.”
Gaga just may heed the advice of The Ozzman — the chart-topper recently took a page from the Ozzy playbook during her Monsterball 2010 concert in London last week, where she bit the head off of a… stuffed Santa Claus doll.
“I do like Christmas, but for those of you who are feeling lonely this Christmas, (this is) just to keep everyone happy…” Gaga told the audience before tearing Santa’s hat off with her teeth, squishing the doll’s body beneath her spike-heeled boot, and unleashing an expletive-laced anti-holiday tirade.
The unconventional pop star then calmly returned to performing, saying, “Anyways, now that I’ve killed Santa, what am I going to do with all of you?”
