Ozzy Osbourne is moving back to England as he is ‘fed up’ with mass shootings in America and fears dying there.

In a revealing interview with The Observer, the 73-year-old said the situation in the US is ‘ridiculous’ and said he would ‘rather live in Timbuktu’.

He said: “Everything’s f***ing ridiculous there. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings.

“And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert… It’s f***ing crazy.”

“I don’t want to be buried in f***ing Forest Lawn,” the musician says of the celebrity-filled cemetery in LA.

“I’m English. I want to be back. But saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go.

“But, no, it’s just time for me to come home.”

During the interview, Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, said: “America has changed so drastically. It isn’t the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.”

The family are planning to sell their LA mansion and move to their 350-acre Buckinghamshire estate early next year, The Observer reports.

Osbourne is said to have plans in place for a music studio inside the house, where he mentioned recording an album for former Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi.

Iommi and Osbourne recently reunited with Black Sabbath for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, where he was born.

The gig was his first since he had major neck surgery in the summer, realigning pins in his back and neck after they were damaged in a 2019 fall at home.

Osbourne’s upcoming album, ‘Patient Number 9’, is scheduled for release on September 9 featuring songs from Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, Eric Clapton and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
