DOWNLOAD: Alice Cooper - You Make Me Wanna (MP3)

Ozzy Newborn

Ozzy Osbourne issued a press release late Thursday that blasted police in Fargo, North Dakota, for staging a sting operation in his name before his concert Monday night at the Fargodome.....

....Osbourne, who denied prior knowledge of the sting, said he took personal offense to Laney's scheme.

"Instead of holding a press conference to pat himself on the back, Sheriff Laney should be apologizing to me for using my name in connection with these arrests," Osbourne said in his statement. "It's insulting to me and to my audience and it shows how lazy this particular sheriff is when it comes to doing his job.

"Sheriff Laney went out of his way to tarnish my reputation by implying that I somehow attract a criminal element, which is certainly not true," Ozzy continued. "My audiences are good, hard-working people who have been hugely supportive of my music for nearly four decades. They have also been very supportive of my wife Sharon's colon cancer charity by raising over a million dollars (partly through VIP ticket sales) at my shows. It's obvious to me that this sheriff has an agenda and is just trying to make a name for himself on my back." [MTV]

And speaking of, or about, Ozzy....
Alice Cooper has claimed that Ozzy Osbourne's reality TV show The Osbournes ruined his career because it left his fans disappointed. The rock legend insisted that by allowing the world into his house the Black Sabbath singer ruined the mystery surrounding him and made him a laughing stock. Cooper said: "Most fans thought he lived in a big, dark castle with skeletons in the cellar. When that show aired they knew he was just some guy who potters around his Beverly Hills mansion. It was meant to be some kind of comedy but the audience was laughing at Ozzy, not with him. And as a close friend, that made me very sad." [digital spy] (via)

Guess what Alice? Ozzy doesnt give a shit about what you think. He's laughing all the way to the bank. What would make you think that a guy in his 50s would care if some of the "mystery" surrounding him disappears because of a (profitable) tv show? What an idiot.

Ozzy's audience does attract a big criminal contingent. Anyone who likes most of post Sabbath Ozzy has to have a low IQ. In order to think that committing a criminal act is beneficial you also have to have a low IQ. Seems like there must be some sort of cross section.

Who are the other two guys in that picture supposed to be? Is the guy on the far right supposed to be Donnie Wahlberg?

Never mind, I just saw the tags on that Flickr page. He thinks he looks like Kid Rock. And the guy with the drumstick thinks he looks like Tommy Lee.

Isn't Alice Cooper the same one trying to make it as a golfer now? He run around in khakis and polos at every tournament that lets him in. I guess that has no affect on his image?

hey, everything rocks, go fuck yourself.

no body is trying to change anything or stop anyone from doing something by dissing them on this blog.

christ, you are as dumb as alice cooper

It seems to me Ozzy should feel proud he was able to help law enforcement in some way. Obviously his fans span the entire cross section of the public, both good and bad, which is a reason the sheriff used his name. If he were a nobody then what would be the point.

Ozzie Osbourne is a crazy singer. Like his daughter. That baby doesn´t have anything to do with him. Fortunately for him :)

It's such a cute picture of innocence fragility and that doesn't spare him to be victim of others peoples imperfection and cruelty. Let us protect childrens' rights.

I don't know whether it is fortunate to meet you.
Read the whole story please click:www.happydofus.com or www.gamejoying.com .
I had never played a game at level 30+, sometimes i only upgrade to 6 level then uninstall it. When i met you, dofus, i told myself, why don't continue for long time this time? It is a large discrepancy for our level, so we hadn't played together, i am also a friend of yours, i'm sorry, it is my wrong to come late.
