The Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne has been in the music business since the late 60s and especially during the first three decades of his career he had a big problem with drug and alcohol addiction, which made him forget things that he done or said over the years. Now that he is clean, the musician can’t always remeber if, for example, he’s ever met or talked about another famous person.
In an episode of his SiriusXM radio show “Ozzy’s Boneyard” (Transcribed by Metal Hammer), he recalled a funny story involving the late singer Whitney Houston during the TV show “Dancing With The Stars” back in 2009.
“When we were doing Dancing with the Stars [with] the kids, in one of the breaks, Whitney came down to sing in the break, you know, in the show. She came down. I saw her when she was on the prime of her things. When that woman sang, it was like something out of a… it was mind-blowing.”
“She came and she looked tired, burnt-out. She stopped in the middle of it. I thought she was looking at me. She walks towards me and I’m going, I’m trying to think, my brain’s going ‘Have I met her? Have I ever insulted her? What the fuck is she coming over to me for?'””
“No, I’m going like, ‘Have I fucking met this woman? Have I pissed her off? She’s gonna come over and tell me I’m a c***. Did I say anything about her in an interview?’ She came right up to next me, she said, ‘Good to see you.’ And I said to Sharon when she went, I said, ‘I never knew you knew Whitney Houston.’ She said, ‘You never asked.’ ‘Well you could have fucking told me!'” Ozzy Osbourne said.
Whitney Houston sadly died at the age of 48 in 2012. Nicknamed “The Voice”, she is one of the best-selling artists of all time with an estimated amount of more than 200 million records sold worldwide.
