Ozzy Osbourne on 9/11: “It was my kind of craziness"

In perhaps the most misguided statement regarding 9/11 since Blue’s Lee Ryan declared “this New York thing is being blown out of proportion,” Osbourne has explained how he was in New York to meet George W Bush the day the World Trade Centre’s twin towers were attacked: “I wasn’t scared, I was excited!” he told Shortlist. “It was my kind of craziness, y’know.”

He added: “I remember standing on the steps of the hotel, and – you know when you see an old cowboy film and that tumbleweed rolls past on the ground? There was newspapers just floating around on the streets. It was so fucking weird. Everybody just backed off Manhattan because they didn’t know if it was an all-out thing or what.”…

While the atrocities of 9/11 left the metal frontman excited, Osbourne did admit to his fears regarding the current threat of ISIS: “I think sooner or later one of these crazy fuckers is going to get a nuclear weapon and fuck a lot of people up.”
