Sex Pistol John Lydon Blasts Ozzy Osbourne for Promoting Drug Abuse
The Sex Pistols frontman, known better as Johnny Rotten, says “Ozzy is clearly a victim, and selling that loser lifestyle s**t to other people equally victimises them."
“That’s a shame. Ozzy’s a working class man, like me, yet he allows that to happen. By acting like he does all the time, he implies that we’re all stupid, the working classes. But we’re not, you know. We’re not! We’re the proper Britain, us lot.”
Ironically, Lydon and Ozzy’s careers have run along a similar path. Both began by shocking and mocking the establishment. Later, they embraced that very same status quo by appearing in popular reality shows.
Lydon even endorsed a brand of butter on the telly, but says the TV work was accepted so he could finance music projects.
