Sharon Osbourne has blasted Bruce Dickinson as a “f*cking a*shole” who is “jealous” of Ozzy Osbourne.
This happened during an interview with Consequence.
Here’s what Sharon said:
“Bruce Dickinson is a f*cking prick. Well, no, he’s not a prick because a prick’s nice. He’s a f*cking a*shole. Because the situation is he was on a tour called Ozzfest. And Ozzy Osbourne was paying him every night to perform. He accepted the gig. He knew what he was doing. He accepted the gig. And every night he would go onstage and say bad things about Ozzy. And the crew and everybody in all the other bands would be like, ‘Are you letting him get away with it?’ And I’m like, ‘I sure am.’ But the last gig was [just outside of] L.A. And I thought, ‘You motherf*cker, now you’re gonna get it.’ And so I had about 20 people in the audience and a lot of them were nurses from Cedars Sinai because I had cancer at that time. And they were all my chemo nurses. And they all came down, and they f*cking pelted the sh*t out of him.”
“And my thing is, you play, you pay! And the thing is if you’re being paid to do a gig, but you don’t like the person, then f*ck off. But don’t stay, take the money, take all the good that’s coming to your band through being on a festival, doing 24 shows and still slagging the person that’s paying you. It’s like, ‘No, that makes you a f*cking a*shole.’ And he is. And he’s never apologized, he never even went up and said hello to Ozzy. The thing about him is that he is just so jealous. And always has been of Ozzy. And that’s his problem.”
“Because the thing is about Bruce Dickinson, he’s hugely successful. He’s got a great fan base, a great fan base that has been loyal. The band is great guys. All the band are great. And they do great. You know, they’re a great band, you can’t take it away, and neither would I take that away from them. But the thing about Bruce is, he is unknown to the public. Bruce Dickinson could walk into anywhere and nobody would know who the f*ck he is. Do you know what I’m saying? He’s a faceless singer to the general public. People aren’t scrambling to get him for an interview. And the thing is, he’s not interesting. But the thing is, Ozzy is original and Bruce isn’t and that’s what eats Bruce away.”
