"Wut he say?"

[–]Hey-Nice-Marmot 1515 points1516 points  (10 children)

I love how Graham Norton just pretended not to have heard! "Wut he say?" "Uhhh I dunno"

[–]ZSebra 271 points272 points  (7 children)

It was Ozzy Osbourne, it is most likely she didn't hear it

[–]Azzkikka 64 points65 points  (0 children)

... clearly.... ever. Unless he is singing!

I love Ozzy!

[–]JaneOstentatious 2190 points2191 points  (103 children)

Oh, she heard.

[–]Earthsoundone 547 points548 points  (53 children)

That was the clearest sentence he’s spoken in decades.

[–]Beatles-are-best 272 points273 points  (47 children)

He never stopped having the ability to speak clearly, except during the reality show, because he was put on an anti-psychotic during that. I've been on the same or at least very similar anti-psychotic as the one he was on then and it made me sound drunk even when completely sober. It was a real struggle to get out basic sentences. It was weird, like I had far less control over my lips. People blamed it on the recreational drugs he did when actually it was the medical drugs he was prescribed. I hope it still helped him for whatever it was for, at least. It's not the worst side effect of an anti psychotic that's for sure

[–]jimbojangles1987 33 points34 points  (11 children)

I had a friend give me a couple of his anti-psychotic pills one night when I just asked for a sleeping pill. I didn't know until later that that's what he had given me. I had work the next morning and for whatever reason I was having a hard time falling asleep that night.

I woke up the next morning and went downstairs to have breakfast and when I tried to say "good morning" to my parents all that came out was slurred mumbling. I also still felt dizzy and tired. I had to eventually call into work and tell them I couldn't come in that day and try to sleep off the medication. I think I slept through til about 5pm that day. I couldn't believe how much those pills affected me.

[–]thedaveness 626 points627 points  (10 children)

So the less confrontational version of “say that again, I dare ya!”

[–]ProSnuggles 334 points335 points  (17 children)

Oh she heard him

[–]rW0HgFyxoJhYka 239 points240 points  (14 children)

Man thank god his wife is there for damage control rofl.

[–]MaetzleAT 4217 points4218 points  (141 children)

Think this is the first time I‘ve seen Ozzy Osbournes eyes.

[–]AlHubbard 1196 points1197 points  (112 children)

[–]HubertTempleton 1141 points1142 points  (100 children)

Serious question: which one of them is he?

Pretty boy on the far right

[–]BboyEdgyBrah 1863 points1864 points  (43 children)

damns drugs is a hell of a drug

[–]sloppyrhyno 801 points802 points  (25 children)

Age is also a hell of a drug

[–]HighlyRefinedPirate_ 136 points137 points  (10 children)

all things considered, Ozzy got off easy when it came to drugs and destroying your appearance

[–]Old_Deadhead 137 points138 points  (7 children)

[–]catsandnarwahls 140 points141 points  (6 children)

Kieth richards dont count. Hes been dead for 30 years. Its like the touch of grey music video by grateful dead. Hes just a skeleton with strings attached and some old cheap leather draped over it.

[–]Rambonics 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I like the quote “Be kind to the Earth. Think about the kind of world we will be leaving for Keith Richards.”

[–]oomio10 210 points211 points  (1 child)

or the 50 years since that picture was taken

[–]Archaic44 276 points277 points  (0 children)

damn 50 years of drugs is a hell of a drug

[–]BaronSpaffalot 337 points338 points  (30 children)

[–]TheEffingRiddler 164 points165 points  (17 children)

There is absolutely no way I'd recognize him.

[–]RagePoop 266 points267 points  (10 children)

So "ozzy" tattooed across his knuckles wouldn't have tipped you off?

[–]wojtynaman 343 points344 points  (4 children)

I think one time will be enough for me

[–]ShawnisMaximus 4648 points4649 points  (455 children)

He seems so with it in this clip.

[–]welleverybodysucks[S] 3653 points3654 points  (374 children)

i was surprised how coherent he was during the show he just did with his son jack. he might be a little lagging, but he's much better than he seemed back when his family had their own show.

[–]wufnu 1640 points1641 points  (185 children)

He also looks younger, somehow.

[–]iScreme 1129 points1130 points  (24 children)

Bat heads work, but they have a serious delay in their effects.

[–]Stahlregen 403 points404 points  (15 children)

"You can do it, Ozzy. Bite his freakin' head off!"

[–]pricedgoods 134 points135 points  (12 children)

I love that movie, I don't care what anyone says!

[–]teenagesadist 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I've always identified with it, in the sense that my brother has hit me in the face with a shovel.

[–]CallMe_Dig_Baddy 116 points117 points  (4 children)

Toy Story 3 was amazing, I agree

[–]skoo 481 points482 points  (113 children)

The clip is from 2009

[–]wufnu 473 points474 points  (107 children)

Even so, my memories are from the early 2000s which was probably the last time I saw him (due to the TV show). I looked up pics from 2003 and 2017, still looks younger and definitely healthier. I think he's lost weight and possibly had some tightening done. He's 69, here.

[–]SweetSlowKiss 353 points354 points  (4 children)

Fun fact about this photo: Sharon is actually laughing.

[–]james672 242 points243 points  (31 children)

What a lot of people probably don't realise is, Ozzy has always sounded like that. If you look at early interviews he sounds just the same - it's a combination of the Birmingham accent and that he's always had a stammer.

[–]Topikk 380 points381 points  (27 children)

Watch some clips from Meet The Osbournes. He shuffled around like a lobotomy patient and slurred 3 word incoherent sentences.

I’m surprised nobody else here seems to remember when the story broke about how many heavy drugs he had been prescribed, and how he immediately improved when he got off of them.

[–]trailertrash_lottery 147 points148 points  (4 children)

Yeah I agree. They had to use subtitles when he talked. The guy slurred all his words and could barely form a coherent thought. I remember him shaking really bad and mumbling on that show. I was only like 12 years old when that show was on so I didn't really understand what was wrong with him but when I got older I realized how messed up he was.

[–]bambooescalator 55 points56 points  (6 children)

I saw him live once after the Osbournes, likely after he got off the medication, and he was not even close to the same person, had so much energy literally jumping around on stage laughing. Was fantastic.

[–]gesus47 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Same. I saw him last fall in Illinois and I was pleasantly surprised how coherent he was and how much energy he had. He still puts on a hell of a show.

[–]VeryCanadian 120 points121 points  (48 children)

He's * what age?! *

It's a weird feeling hearing that all these icons of metal are senior citizens now. I assumed we'd be grieving Ozzy's early demise, but, like, if Ozzy dies now, can we really say it was the drugs?

[–]Dough-gy_whisperer 122 points123 points  (38 children)

I think I've heard that past was a bit of a medical wonder. His body actually processes and metabolizes hard drugs differently and more effectively than the average person. If I'm not mistaken, he's actually been the subject of several studies trying to figure out how his body does it. Super interesting guy, even if I cant understand half of his spoken word

[–]nothinbuttherain 79 points80 points  (10 children)

[–]Dough-gy_whisperer 46 points47 points  (5 children)

its wild to think that what he did to himself with drugs would have easily killed the regular joe. beyond not dying, hes still alive at nearly 70 years old and more coherent than ive ever heard him.

time blur memeories, but i remember a clip of the ozzy show where he was asking two officers if he could have a fire on the beach. pretty sure it took a few attempts before the cops had any idea what he was saying. long live the oz-man

[–]ReeferReekinRight 15 points16 points  (3 children)

time blur memeories

While drugs make time disappear. I lost years of my life when I spent everyday like that. Crazy that half my life is only a memory in my girlfriend's mind. She has to tell me things if we are reminiscing about the past

[–]Cultjam 13 points14 points  (1 child)

“At the end of the world, there will be roaches, Ozzy, and Keith Richards.”

[–]toastymow 43 points44 points  (11 children)

The theory is that him and Steve Tyler from Aerosmith actually have some rare Neanderthal DNA that has allowed them to push their bodies so hard in terms of drug abuse.

[–]sdpr 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Looks like he's sucking the life force from Geddy Lee

[–]eldritch_ape 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Ozzy had a facelift at some point after his reality show ended I believe. It's probably that.

[–]Mrben13 34 points35 points  (3 children)

You're from 2009!

[–]skoo 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is accurate, I'll allow it.

[–]EcoSlaves 36 points37 points  (0 children)

It was the berries

[–]RdoubleU 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Sobriety, I think

[–]Hooch1981 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I think that's the actual reason why he asked if there's alcohol in it, because (during that time) he probably can't drink it if there is.

[–]Bagofsecrets2 71 points72 points  (14 children)

Levelling up. British rockstars hit a ceiling and stay there

[–]ProtonDeathRay 17 points18 points  (4 children)

He's had Botox and fillers like Sharon has. It really does wonders.

[–]Mr_Ibericus 481 points482 points  (18 children)

Apparently one of his medications was actually having a bad side effect causing the slurred speech and it went undiagnosed for years.

[–]extremely_handsome 478 points479 points  (6 children)

Was it bourbon?

[–]Barron_Cyber 93 points94 points  (2 children)

i think it was the combination of ants and urine.

[–]PM_ME_JAR_JAR_NUDES 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Fentanyl, actually. Apparently he was single-handedly trying to end America's drug epidemic.

He's the hero we don't deserve.

[–]FalmerEldritch 139 points140 points  (9 children)

I was under the impression that it was more like twenty of his medications were having bad side effects.

And he didn't need to be on them anyway. He was just going to Hollywood doctors who were like "oh hey a rock star, I'll just prescribe him all the uppers, downers, laughers, screamers, howlers, stunners, zoomers, boomers, and deelyboppers". Several of them.

[–]Mistake_By_The_Jake2 74 points75 points  (4 children)

Hey now, let’s not blame the deelyboppers.

[–]RexArcana 20 points21 points  (3 children)

My mom died of a deelybopper overdose before I was born, and she's not the only victim of the deelioid epidemic, so I think a little blame is warranted.

[–]sisterchristopher 163 points164 points  (23 children)

speaks a language only understood by his wife

sings crystal clear at the age of 69

[–]Michael_Scotts_Tots 56 points57 points  (7 children)

Not sure if he still does Ozz fest but my dad was a gopher a venue they would play at on that tour. Every year he’d pass by Ozzys dressing room and hear him with his vocal coach warming up. Scales, intervals, the works. He’s a true professional and keeps his product in tact.

[–]geralt922 236 points237 points  (34 children)

A lot of the “he doesn’t look quite right” thing with Ozzy is actually that he badly hurt his neck in a quad bike accident, many years after he was sober and drug-free.

So he has that kind of stiff gaze because he’s lost a lot of movement from his neck.

David Bowie was known to do an extreme amount of drugs at one stage of his career and he was razor sharp right up until his death.

[–]Crisp_Volunteer 208 points209 points  (23 children)

David Bowie was known to do an extreme amount of drugs at one stage of his career and he was razor sharp right up until his death.

Bowie quit everything at one point though and sobered up. Once even stating that one glass of wine would kill him and send him on a bender.

[–]Khnagar 92 points93 points  (14 children)

Bowie stated many times that his memory of much of the seventies was completely gone due to drug abuse. Not as some sort of funny remark about how much partying and drugs he did, but to warn people that drugs fucked him up badly.

Which is not to say it negatively influenced his mental faculties apart from memory loss, but he did damage his brain badly because of drugs.

[–]freyalorelei 84 points85 points  (12 children)

I saw him in 2004 on the Reality tour, and in the middle of performing "Fame" he had to stop and have someone bring out sheet music because he couldn't remember the lyrics.

To "Fame." One of his few #1 hits in America and among the most famous of his songs in general.

He was very apologetic about it, and kept up a charming patter with the audience to fill the time.

[–]Misha_Vozduh 17 points18 points  (0 children)

What a legend

[–]fazi0 148 points149 points  (19 children)

His old Doctor was disbarred for malpractice. He prescribed Ozzy A LOT of unnecessary medication. He’s been off it for a while and he’s stopped shaking and stuttering.

[–]DonnerPartyPicnic 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I saw Black Sabbath in San Antonio at the end of 2016. It was actually really good and surprisingly coherent. Great concert

[–]gerryn 52 points53 points  (6 children)

The show was enormously exaggerated. Did you see the last episode where he picked up dog shit from the floor in their house and it was fake? The show was just that, fake. He's nowhere near as retarded as he made himself to be in the show.

[–]savemesomeporn 512 points513 points  (9 children)

Word is he was on a heavy blend of anti-psychotic medication and tranquilizers for awhile there, which played a big part in the mumbling zombie phase he had. He's been much more clear and coherent lately. Really glad to see he's doing better, I didn't want The Prince of Darkness to go out like that.

[–]BigBiker05 154 points155 points  (6 children)

He showed up at a pop-up at the radio station by my house right before Ozfest. He came on stage, said thanks for coming, then just stood there for two more minutes before leaving. I don't know if it was him, or if he was expecting someone to tell him what to say or what.

[–]TheGlennerator 144 points145 points  (5 children)

He was just deciding if he should unleash his darkness

[–]bettareckognize 46 points47 points  (4 children)

He did that at the Alamo and they banned him

[–]JohnBrownsAngryBalls 22 points23 points  (2 children)

He did that at the Alamo and they banned him

When you've been drinking, you have to unleash the darkness often and urgently.

[–]odaeyss 23 points24 points  (1 child)

When ya gotta piss, but you're so drunk your mind is so shot that literally all you can remember is the Alamo

[–]MoyPicante 196 points197 points  (49 children)

I did security at one of concerts like two years ago, dude looked decrepit. You know what he wanted for snacks in his dressing room? Limes and milk.

[–]super6plx 340 points341 points  (12 children)

limes and milk sounds like it could have been for his voice

[–]aspmaster 95 points96 points  (0 children)

oh yeah this sounds much more normal in a tea context

[–]FalmerEldritch 80 points81 points  (7 children)

Milk is something thing singers avoid for their voice. It makes you phlegmy and coats your vocal cords. The tea suggestion makes a lot more sense.

[–]super6plx 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I thought the same thing, I can never record stuff when I've had milk it sounds terrible - but I dunno I'm not ozzy osborne

[–]wimmyjales 180 points181 points  (9 children)

lol it was probably for his throat. I've known singers who care about their voice that drink milk over soda. He does a pretty extensive vocal warm up before he sings. You wouldn't think a guy like ozzy would take so much care of his own body part, but

[–]MagicalMysteryBro 64 points65 points  (0 children)

His voice has this certain strain to it, I'm sure it probably does kinda need at least a bit of soothing and warm up to make sure he can at least get it done right.

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_JAILBAIT 31 points32 points  (3 children)

He may abuse the rest of his body, but gotta take care of the moneymaker

[–]lagoon83 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Sounds like he's making paneer in his dressing room. Such a rockstar.

[–]130n35s 55 points56 points  (13 children)

Close to a David Bowie diet, milk and peppers, but that's all he ate for a few years there. Something to do with a long-spanning satanic ritual he was conducting.

[–]fenney 128 points129 points  (3 children)

Pretty sure cocaine was a significant part of that diet too

[–]130n35s 59 points60 points  (0 children)

and cigarettes if we want to fill out his full food pyramid

[–]MaximumCarnageX 64 points65 points  (3 children)

If I recall correctly, David Bowie said he consumed milk, peppers, and cocaine exclusively throughout his Thin White Duke era.

[–]SerialHealer 345 points346 points  (14 children)

That's a married couple if I ever saw one

[–]Dragovic 180 points181 points  (13 children)

Except for the fact that they almost divorced because Ozzy cheated on her with six different women.

[–]EddardCorleone 638 points639 points  (1 child)

That's a married couple if I ever saw one.

[–]melosfox 79 points80 points  (4 children)

At different times or all at once? If it’s all at once, that’s more like cheating one time.

[–]Radwaymm 284 points285 points  (0 children)

My favourite part of this show was that Ozzy kept asking Sharon to ask Graham if he could go to the loo.

[–]lordeddardstark 642 points643 points  (4 children)

Ozzy just verbalized what Graham had in his mind all along

[–]CrMyDickazy 54 points55 points  (2 children)

"Don't know" was Graham's response when she asked him what Ozzy said.

[–]skrln 45 points46 points  (1 child)

That's because Graham likes to keep his job.

[–]MickTravisBickle 121 points122 points  (3 children)

Ozzy saying "well actually" is the highlight of my week.

[–]ZeeHanzenShwanz 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Mine was actually Sharon's perfect comedic timing on the hushed "it's fabulous".

[–]Dawnoftime 401 points402 points  (0 children)

If your drink can brighten up the prince of darkness, you've really got something there.

[–]OFJehuty 522 points523 points  (6 children)

Holy shit I've never seen Ozzy not looking and sounding like he's half in a coma. This is amazing.

[–]ODzyns 442 points443 points  (2 children)

the drink really works

[–]Huskar 81 points82 points  (2 children)

i knew something was off when i understood everything he said

[–]AnfarwolColo 521 points522 points  (84 children)

Love Ozzy

[–]Awesome_as_FAIZ 352 points353 points  (82 children)

Is it just me or did he somehow reverse age over the past 15 years? I remember watching The Osbournes in the early 2000s and thinking he was an old man on the verge of death.

[–]DonnerPartyPicnic 132 points133 points  (57 children)

In his book the doctors make a point to say that they have no idea how he's alive. The drugs should have killed him in the 70s

[–]poopypoopoobuttface 204 points205 points  (53 children)

I think I read something a few years ago online that described how a bunch of scientists took ozzys dna and mapped out his entire genome and discovered that he is pretty much perfectly designed for drug and alcohol intake. Fuckin crazy.

[–]AnfarwolColo 32 points33 points  (5 children)

He's definitely lost weight etc

[–]welleverybodysucks[S] 41 points42 points  (4 children)

there's an episode of world detour where he drinks too much coffee and then gets on an elliptical. guy went crazy on that thing. he's definitely in better shape now.

[–]irishemperor 417 points418 points  (178 children)

It's got lots of Vitamin C - but I've never slammed a few glasses of orange juice & thought "Wow! I'm Alive!"

Camu camu is chock full of vitamin C: 60 times more per serving than an orange! A teaspoon of camu camu powder has 1180 per cent of your recommended daily intake for vitamin C, which is important for gum health, among other functions in our body.

[–]ColeusRattus 731 points732 points  (132 children)

Problem with vitamin C is though that your body cannot store it. So everything that isn't immediately used gets flushed out via the kidneys. Goes for many other vitamins too. That's why most vitamin supplements' main etfect on your body is making it produce really expensive urine.

[–]Falcata80 200 points201 points  (40 children)

Well, generally speaking vitamins B and C get flushed out like that as they are water soluble. While it is very hard to overdose on them because of this, it has been recorded before so mega-doses of either B+C probably still aren't great ideas, regardless of the fact that a diminished amount spends any real time in the body.

Other vitamins like A and D are only fat soluble and can much more readily cause problems, precisely because they are much more difficult to remove from the body. The more you know!

[–]TijM 79 points80 points  (29 children)

Yeah polar bear liver being a prime example of why you shouldn't fuck with vitamins.

Though for some people vit D supplements might not be a bad idea. When I work a bad shift in winter I don't really see the sun for days or weeks.

[–]ryanmh27 51 points52 points  (18 children)

Too much vitamin A in polar bear liver or something?

[–]TijM 124 points125 points  (3 children)

Yeah enough to kill a person, apparently.

Though they're also inside polar bears that also kill persons, so I guess it makes sense that way.

[–]ImAGayRetard 19 points20 points  (10 children)

They eat seals which are also full of vitamin A.

[–]rushworld 24 points25 points  (4 children)

When I had my very first ever blood tests done my doctor just said to me "everything is perfect... except for Vitamin D".

So now I take Vitamin D supplements.

[–]otidder 20 points21 points  (10 children)

This has even more vitamin C! One teaspoon has 4500 percent of your recommended daily intake! Suck it camu camu!

[–]bigtastie 82 points83 points  (5 children)

"Juice with magical berries from the Amazon will detox your body and make you super human!"

All aboard the Crazy Train!

[–]Stussy29 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I’m honestly amazed they even allowed it on a BBC show, it’s in direct violation of the Royal charter.

We pay the license fee, in exchange they run no ads, if they are talking about a product like this they’re supposed to present the counter argument e.g that the science is shoddy at best.

But this was pure shilling, the only reason it passes is because Ozzy calls her out on her bullshit and that was by accident.

If the segment had gone as plan they’d all be talking about how amazing the juice is, they wouldn’t tell you how to buy it (against the rules) but they’d leave enough context clues so you can figure it out.

[–]soulrebelyell 181 points182 points  (3 children)

Thank you Ozzy....this is the kind of response we need to have to a lot of shit these days. He took the lead, let’s all follow suit...


[–]wigg1es 27 points28 points  (0 children)

One does not simply brighten the Prince of Darkness's day.

[–]PhantomKid 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I love Ozzy, the man doesn't give a shit

[–]Ltsmash99 62 points63 points  (0 children)

Ozzy slammed that scam drink. Its like watching a pro. Actually, i am watching a pro.

[–]yosem1te 647 points648 points  (27 children)

So happy to see Graham Norton all over the front page. His show is hands down my favorite talk show on television.

[–]odaeyss 36 points37 points  (0 children)

I did not know going into this how much I needed to see Ozzy still being a no-fucks-given smartass rockstar again.

[–]dearhero 247 points248 points  (22 children)

[–]metatronsaint 98 points99 points  (2 children)

I love his wife's reaction.

[–]lordeddardstark 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Lol, Sharon here looked like she didn't have to deal with Ozzy's shenanigans on a daily basis

[–]bitcoinlitecoin 165 points166 points  (9 children)

I love that he loves how the crowd loves his line.

[–]PlantainTapiocaChips 104 points105 points  (3 children)

This sentence is giving me a headache :-/

[–]oo- 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I love that you love that he loves how the crowd loves his line.

[–]JimboTCB 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I love how everyone else is just taking dainty little sips, and then he just gives zero fucks, downs it in one go and asks for more.

[–]Zayin-Ba-Ayin 36 points37 points  (0 children)

What the actual fuck can this do to him that anything else didn't

[–]wankawitz 12 points13 points  (5 children)

I enjoy Ozzy & Jack's World Detour (forgot what channel it is on). Never saw the Osbourne's MTV reality show back in the day but World Detour is very enjoyable, done 2 seasons so far.

[–]thepixelpup 12 points13 points  (1 child)

That could've been a lot worse. Good thing she didn't get physical.

[–]TraumaTies 93 points94 points  (17 children)

Makes me want to re-watch The Osbournes. I don't watch reality TV but that show was amazing.

[–]welleverybodysucks[S] 75 points76 points  (13 children)

you should watch his show with jack if you haven't!

[–]DESYphotowerks 64 points65 points  (2 children)

I can't look at Ozzy with out his glasses and not think that it's really Mike Myers (of Wayne's world , SNL or Austin Powers fame).

[–]teenagesadist 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Or Halloween, he was great in those.

[–]VulpixDash 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I fucking love Ozzy
