Ozzy

[Ozzy Osbourne] has turned over a new leaf, literally, by embracing a vegan diet for what the Prince of Darkness cites as health reasons. Reportedly, after his assistant showed him the vegan documentary Forks over Knives, Ozzy decided that it was time to cut meat, fish, dairy and anything else derived from animals out of his diet. Speaking on Sharon Osbourne's chat show, The Talk, the singer revealed that he his feeling the benefits:

"I feel OK actually, I feel better about myself, you know? I go on binges. That's the reason why I decided to cut out meat out and dairy because I've limited what I can have because when you're on the road and you're travelling, you grab buns and... burgers are everywhere... so now I've just narrowed the margin."

Ozzy's new lifestyle choice comes hot on the heels of the news that he and his Black Sabbath alumni, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward may begin rehearsals for a final reunion tour.... If Sabbath do hit the road again, Ozzy may find some camaraderie from his new dietary choice in band member Geezer Butler. The bassist is a longstanding vegan, and has appeared in advertising campaigns for P.E.T.A. [Ultimate-Guitar]

Look for Ozzy and Tony (and Bill Clinton) trying out the new vegan pie at Two Boots all this month.

I'm sure Morrissey is overjoyed

Morrissey is a cunt. The Smiths were always about the brilliance of Marr, and that's all.

Well, I do know that Robin Quivers is a vegan.

Two Boots is expensive. You can get a better slice for less in this here city.

Rumors are flying that Ozzy is opening up a hummus stand on bedford ave.

I predict that the new found phyto-nutrients that will be added to Ozzy's diet will give him a new found energy and stamina for him to bust out rock and roll dancemoves such as the hip thrust. Go Ozzy!

Eat a steak you hipster douchebags.

^um yeah, and while I'd love to hear your crazy vegan rhetoric, I've heard it before, and can say with absolute certainty that there is nothing wrong with an occasional steak. And taste wise it destroys soy "steak" or whatever other meat type food you lunatics have made a faux version of.

i hear Morrissey likes sausage

I'm curious. What do vegans do if their apartment is infested with mice?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 7:10 PM

^they've got those "humane" mouse traps.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 7:19 PM

All of you meat eaters can go ahead and eat your wieners.

'Vegan' is shorthand for 'eating disorder'.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 7:35 PM

2 Boots on Sunset is the best pizza in LA. Pretty much the same as their NYC franchises although 2 Boots is far from best in NY but decent.

Posted by Lil' Frank | November 2, 2011 7:58 PM

"meat eater" is shorthand for "small thinker"

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 9:18 PM

Whenever I catch a mouse in my humane mouse trap I set it free at katz's deli for the enjoyment of all you weiner eaters.

Under 30 vegans don't count.

Rumors are flying that Ozzy is opening up a latkas stand on bedford ave.

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2011 1:16 AM

^ what the hell is a latka? And infringing upon the hummus meme is sacrilegious around here, so tread with caution my latka eating friend.

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2011 1:44 AM

Latkas contain eggs. They are not vegan. Hummus does not contain eggs. It is vegan.

Ozzy needs to retire asap. Sharon is evil. So is their record label. End of story
