Famous Singer

Ozzy Osbourne

What Made Ozzy Osbourne a Babbling Mess?

On August 17, 2003, rock legend Ozzy Osbourne was invited to Wrigley Field to sing Take Me Out To The Ball Game during the seventh-inning stretch of a Chicago Cubs game.

Over the next few days the scene was replayed on national television, making a mockery of the mumbling singer. That incident, said Osbournes manager-wife Sharon, was the last straw; she claimed that Ozzys doctor was overprescribing him a host of powerful antipsychotic and tranquilizing drugs, which contributed to his bizarre behavior.

While the fame and fortune that comes along with being a celebrity seems glamorous (and most certainly can be at times) it’s extremely taxing for a kid who suddenly has to give up his or her childhood to work full-time hours in the “biz” and deal with the pressures of maintaining an image in front of millions of fans. The effects of fame can be detrimental to anyone’s health, let alone a child who has been in the public eye practically since birth.
