Jack Osbourne: The Osbournes ‘Tarnished’ Ozzy’s Image

|

Jack Osbourne sat down with Rolling Stone and the rock spawn had a few choice words about the reality show that made him, parents Sharon and Ozzy, and sister Kelly, America’s favorite family. “I think The Osbournes, to a degree, tarnished the public’s perception of my dad as a bit of a senile, funny, bumbling guy,” Jack tells the mag. “Yeah, my dad can be that guy, but it’s not him. I think that almost discredited who he is as an artist.”

Jack is attempting to set the record straight with a new Ozzy documentary, tentatively titled John (Ozzy’s real name) that he is producing with some friends. Jack reveals that this “talking book” will show the real Ozzy. Jack says, “My dad’s not an idiot — he’s nothing short of a genius, in my opinion. He does have huge flaws, and we’re trying to really paint an honest picture of that.”
