(CNN)Ozzy Osbourne is a Brit by birth and a Californian by choice, but after decades in California, he’s ready to leave.
After more than 20 years in Los Angeles, Osbourne and his wife Sharon are returning to their Buckinghamshire home, the Black Sabbath singer told the Observer in a wide-ranging interview. In the early 2000s, Osbourne’s family life in California was famously documented on the MTV reality series “The Osbournes.”
According to the Observer, gun violence in the United States was one of the factors that prompted him to return to the United Kingdom full-time.
“I’m tired of seeing people killed every day,” he said of American gun violence. “Nobody knows how many people were killed in school shootings. And then there was that mass shooting at that concert in Vegas… it’s f*****g insane.”
He also stated that he did not want to die in the United States. “I’m from England. I’d like to return.”
According to the Gun Violence Archive, which updated its data on Monday, there will be more than 440 mass shootings in the United States in 2022. The Las Vegas mass shooting Osbourne mentioned occurred in 2017 and killed 58 people, making it the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
“America has changed so drastically,” Sharon Osbourne said, adding that there is “nothing united about it.” Last year, she waded into divisive debates when she defended her friend Piers Morgan in an argument with Sheri Underwood on an episode of their daytime show “The Talk,” and she later left the show after former colleagues accused her of using racist and homophobic language.
Ozzy Osbourne told the Mirror earlier this year that he wanted to leave for a different reason: According to a UK tabloid, Osbourne stated in March that “the tax is getting too much” and that, while he misses Los Angeles, he does not want to continue paying current taxes to stay in the US.
The Osbournes will return to the UK in February, according to the Observer, where Osbourne has stated that he will continue to make music. His new solo album, which he recorded while suffering from a variety of chronic illnesses, including Parkinson’s disease, will be released next month.
