Contrary to rumors flying far and wide Ozzy has not been
invited by President George W. Bush to the White House for a
what-would-be most unusual summit of the minds. The story
started in England in one of that country's infamous tabloids
but the real story is that Ozzy and Sharon have been invited by
one of their new fans, Fox News Channel talking head Greta Van
Susteren, to the White House Press Correspondents Dinner
May 4. And yes, the President WILL attend the dinner, along
with a host of other politicos and journalists.
Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, The Rosie O'Donnell Show,
20/20, cover of USA Today, Regis and Kelly, Tonight Show with
Jay Leno--the list goes on! It is the highest profile Ozzy has
ever had in his illustrious 32-year career and it goes without
saying this is the funniest era: dog shit,
bubbles, "pimpmobiles", vacuum cleaners (AKA vac sabbath). Who
isn't laughing? Apparently very few Americans between the ages
18 and 34 as "The Osbournes" episode 7 (air date: April 16) was
the sixth highest rated show on all of televsion in that
demographic group and the highest rating *ever* for MTV. Second
season? We're betting on it.
"THE OSBOURNES" ALBUM IN THE WORKS; JACK OVERSEES PROJECT
That's right, hot off the success of the series Epic Records
has begun to assemble an Osbournes soundtrack, to be executive
produced by none other than everyone's favorite 16 year old
mogul, Jack Osbourne! No information on acts or tracklisting as
of yet but Jack's sister Kelly will make her recording debut
with her spunky version of "Papa Don't Preach", the 1986
Madonna classic. More details as they become available.
OZZY IN THE STUDIO RECORDING BONUS TRACKS FOR "LIVE AT BUDOKAN"
Ozzy has been tracking several songs for the last couple weeks
in a Hollywood studio, three of which will make the final cut
as bonus tracks to Ozzy's eagerly anticipated "Live at Budokan"
CD, coming this summer on Epic. More info soon.
