Ozzy Osbourne, British Icon, Doesn’t Know What Brexit Is, or Who the Kardashians Are

Over his long and lurid career Ozzy Osbourne has said, done and ingested a lot of things, from booze, drugs to an actual bat’s head. Admittedly he did spit out the last after biting off the unfortunate creature’s head, but you get what we mean.

The Black Sabbath front man has actually been studied by scientists who can’t believe that the man is still alive after the amount of illicit narcotics and alcohol he has consumed. They concluded, somewhat haphazardly, that the rocker carried some strains of Neanderthal DNA, the hardy cousins of our early ancestors, which may contribute to his seeming indestructibility.

And despite being alive and kind of kicking after decades of abusing his body, even while several of his peers have passed on to the great gig in the sky, the effects of his excesses are now telling.

Despite being a British music icon, Osbourne recently admitted that he was ignorant about Brexit -- the hot-button topic of the UK leaving the European Union which is currently making headlines all over Europe -- or what the issue entailed. Granted he now lives in Los Angeles, but still.

In an interview with The Big Issue, the infamously hard-living musician came clean. “People keep going on at me about that – is it a big deal over there? What will happen with it? Are people voting in or out, what’s going on?” he asked, adding, “I don’t read the newspapers and I don’t really talk politics because I don’t really know. I don’t really understand Brexit.”

If it's any consolation though, apart from world news, Ozzy also doesn't keep up with the Kardashians.

“I said to Sharon the other day, “What the f**k is the deal with these Kardashians? They don’t sing, they don’t act, they don’t do anything.” She told me, “The trend now is that people want to be celebrities and make money for doing f**king nothing.”
