He was the star of the mtv hit reality series “the osbournes.” He also
has a new box set out entitled, “prince of darkness.” Please welcome ozzy
osbourne.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Ozzy: I love this studio.

Conan: Doesn’t it look nice. It’s you. They’re not like that for everyone.
This is love for you. Yeah, you look good, by the way. You look fantastic.

Ozzy: I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t do dope any more. I’m pretty
boring now.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: Perfect, let’s begin.

[ Laughter ] You don’t drink any more. How long has it been?

Ozzy: About a week.

Conan: You almost said “a week.”

[ Laughter ]

Ozzy: Nearly a year now.

Conan: Nearly a year. Congratulations, good for you.

[ Cheers and applause ] You were once — I know this about you. You
were once so desperate to get a drink that sharon used to take your clothes
away so that you wouldn’t drink. Is that right?

Ozzy: Let me tell you the story. What she would do, is she would steal
my clothes. I’d have no clothes, so what I would do, is steal her clothes
and go in her dresses drinking.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: You would dress up in sharon’s dresses and go out drinking?

Ozzy: Yeah, I ended up in some pretty weird places.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: Doesn’t matter — you’re wearing a dress. You know?

Ozzy: I remember being in frankfurt, germany, one time. And I’ve got
this green evening dress on. And the guy — the guy behind the bar goes,
“you do not belong in this bar. You must go down to the bar down the road.”
I go — this is one of them transvestite bars.

Conan: Right, right, right, right.

Ozzy: I don’t really want to go to.

Conan: You thought you’d blend right in. Now, I’m concerned. I understand
that you were burglarized recently. Someone broke into your home?

Ozzy: Yeah.

Conan: What happened? Tell us the story.

Ozzy: Well, I sleepwalk a lot. You know?

Conan: You sleepwalk.

Ozzy: ‘Cause I’m traveling around, I don’t get used to where I am, you
know?

Conan: Right.

Ozzy: So I was stark naked, right? And I’m in my —

Conan: Wait, back it up. You were sleepwalking and you’re completely
naked.

Ozzy: No, I’m like adam. No, I haven’t even got a leaf up my, you know

[ Laughter ] So I walk into —

Conan: And you’re walking in your own house here?

Ozzy: In my own house, in england. And I don’t know if I’m dreaming
or it’s really happening or what, but I look into sharon’s dressingroom
and there, I open the door and I see a figure behind the dressing table.
And I’m going, “is this a dream?” So he starts to make a run for the window.
So my usual behavior would go, “sharon, you got a visitor,” and run out.

Conan: Right, right, right.

[ Laughter ] Let her deal with it.

Ozzy: Yeah, she got all of the panic buttons and all that. I got one
— my legs, I’m running.

Conan: Right, right, right.

Ozzy: So what I do, I do the opposite. I run towards — he’s trying
to get out the window, I had him in a headlock.

Conan: You grabbed this person?

Ozzy: Yeah, I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

Conan: Yeah.

[ Laughter ]

Ozzy: So I’ve got him in a headlock and, I mean, he’s screaming. I’m
going — but suddenly the thought kind of crosses my mind. I go, “what
if he gets back in and gets the better of me?” And then also, “what if
he’s gay?

[ Laughter ] She’ll lose her jewelry and I’ll lose my jewelry at the
same time.”

[ Laughter ]

Conan: So do you fight a lot of crime naked? Is that something you do?

[ Laughter ]

Ozzy: I’m an naked crime fighter.

Conan: A naked crime fighter, yeah. Well, I under — speaking of your
naked body, which I always like to get to —

[ Laughter ] You have — you have a lot of tattoos, I noticed, but someone
told me you have smiley face tattoos.

Ozzy: Yeah, well, you know, I hate being alone. I suffer from loneliness.
So I just got two little faces on my knees.

Conan: What, what’s this? Get a shot of these. Those are little — those
are two smiley —

[ Laughter ]

Ozzy: I am — my son is just —

Conan: Why do you have smiley faces on your knees?

Ozzy: When I’m pissing people off they don’t want to talk to me, so
I can always pretend they’re alive and talk to them. My son —

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I don’t follow this at all, to be honest with you.

[ Laughter ] You don’t — they’re there because what? Because when people
get mad at you, what happens?

Ozzy: What it is — what?

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I’m conan. Hi, how are you? Good to see you.

Ozzy: Wouldn’t be terrible.

Conan: So, you have the smiley face tattoos.

Ozzy: My son just had it done — it’s like a family tradition, an osbourne
family tradition.

Conan: Oh, okay. So it’s something everyone in the family — all osbournes,
going back.

Ozzy: The males.

Conan: The males in the — thousands of years.

Ozzy: My great-great-grandfather.

Conan: Had smiley faces on their knees.

Ozzy: Egbert.

Conan: Egbert. Egbert osbourne? Okay, I’ll buy that.

[ Laughter ] Now, let’s talk about jack. I read recently that jack,
your son, wants to be a fireman.

Ozzy: Yeah, he comes up with these crazy ideas from time to time.

[ Light laughter ] I mean —

Conan: Well, that’s not a crazy idea. You’re, you know —

Ozzy: Nothing to — fine thing, you know. Kelly, my daughter, just got
a new record. Jack is doing this extreme sports thing, like rock climbing
and swimming with sharks and all that stuff. You know?

Conan: Do you think he would be a good fireman?

Ozzy: I think he would.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I don’t know why that made me laugh. I just like that. You think
he would? He’d be a good fireman?

Ozzy: Yeah.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I was just — I was just repeating what you said and you laughed
when you hadn’t heard it before.

Ozzy: Where is this leading us? We’re like —

Conan: I don’t know, I just like to wander around with you. It’s fun.
Now, you — last time, I visited you at your home once. And we shot something
a bunch of years ago for the emmys and we had a good time. But I noticed
that you had to be driven everywhere. You don’t drive in los angeles.

Ozzy: I can drive, but — and I’ve taken the test.

Conan: You have taken a test in england?

Ozzy: About four or five times. But I was so stoned and loaded that

Conan: You kept failing test?

Ozzy: Every time. But I can drive great. But I’m —

[ Laughter ]

Conan: No, you clearly can’t drive great.

Ozzy: Oh, I can drive. But then my driving, I get —

Conan: Oh, the instructor doesn’t like you driving? You get home is
the important thing.

Ozzy: Yeah, sometimes in a police van.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: So, what is your problem when you drive? What bothers you? What
do you find difficult?

Ozzy: Well, back in those days, I’d drink too much booze or take too
much dope and I’d pass out. I’d just — “do a three-point turn.” I’d be
loaded.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: You have said that if you had to do it all over again, ’cause
you just sort of wrapped up “the osbournes, ” but if you had to do it all
over again, you wouldn’t do it.

Ozzy: No. I mean, you have cameras 24/7. You get pretty pissed off sometimes,
you know.

Conan: Right, right. So you just — now, you’re gonna look forward to
you go and you make a sandwich and there’s not a camera right there in
your face.

Ozzy: Yeah, right. But saying that, we had that dr. Phil round to do
a final thing on saturday. And we haven’t — we haven’t actually had the
film crew in the house for about four months now and they all came back.
And it was kind of like, “oh, I miss you, I miss you.”

Conan: Right.

Ozzy: We kind of made friends, became good friends.

Conan: With the crew and everything. So now that’s done. Are you gonna
stay in the same house? Are you guys gonna live in the same house?

Ozzy: Oh, don’t talk about — do you know — this is no lie — we have
either rented or — well, not we. I should say my wife and I have either
rented or bought in 25 years, 27 houses. And that is no joke.

Conan: 27 houses?

Ozzy: And so when we bought this last one, where we film “the osbournes,”
I said, “sharon, darling — ilove you, but can we at least let paint dry
on this one,” you know?

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: But you think she’s gonna move you again?

Ozzy: She’s — people say you’re going move. I don’t know. Everybody
else knows but me, you know.

Conan: So she could already be living in another house and you wouldn’t
know.

[ Laughter ]

Ozzy: Probably.

Conan: You’re like, “I can’t find the bathroom.” Well, the “prince of
darkness” box set’s in stores now. And look for ozzfest this summer.

Ozzy: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Conan: And, you know, it’s — you look fantastic. You look great.

Ozzy: Thank you.

Conan: It’s very nice to see you doing so well.

Ozzy: Thank you.

Conan: That’s a very nice tie. Ozzy osbourne
