Ozzy Osbourne has admitted he “hated” doing the MTV reality series that made his family stars.
In a new interview with AOL Music’s Spinner, to promote his upcoming album “Scream,” Ozzy said that filming the show, which turned Kelly, Jack, his wife Sharon, and their gaggle of dogs into superstars, wasn’t something that he enjoyed doing.
“We had the Osbournes series, which meant we were on the television, which I f****** hated,” the heavy metal legend told the website. “I didn’t like doing that at all.”
The British rocker said the reality series wasn’t meant to be as revolutionary as it became, eventually inspiring a host of family-following reality shows.
“It wasn’t the intention for it to get so big,” he continued. “Once you’ve put your head in the noose you have to wait for them to pull the trap you know, it’s like you can’t get away from it. It’s just, be careful what you wish for — sometimes it happens. I go to please people around me; I just go OK and then every minute I’m getting p***** off.”
