Ozzy Osbourne becomes London newspaper's new health columnist, wants to donate body to museum
He admitted that he had taken more than 42 types of prescription drugs and was a chain smoker during the shooting of the reality TV show, ‘The Osbournes’.
The ‘Daily Star’ has him spelling, “I’ve often wondered the same thing myself. By all accounts I’m a medical miracle. When I die, I should donate my body to the Natural History Museum,”
“It’s all very well going on a bender for a couple of days but mine went on for 40 years. At one point I was knocking back four bottles of cognac a day, blacking out, coming to again and carrying on,” he added.
The rocker said that he has shelled out more than 1million pounds to keep himself alive.
Did his excessive indulgence in booze, cigars and prescription drugs got him to think that he was afflicted with diseases? The rocker said, “I happen to be the world’s worst hypochondriac. I will catch a disease off the telly. Being ill is like a hobby,” Osbourne said.
“I’ve even started to diagnose my own diseases, thanks to Google,” he added.
Strangely enough, London’s Sunday Times has chosen Osbourne to be their newest health-advice columnist whom they refer to as Dr. Ozzy. In one of this columns, Ozzy wrote a list of 12 things he has survived so far:
1. Knocking back four bottles of cognac a day
2. Swallowing 42 types of prescription drugs during filming The Osbournes
4. Being hit by a plane (which crashed into his tour bus while he was sleeping)
5. A rare genetic condition causing a Parkinsonian-like tremor
7. Rabies treatment after eating a bat
9. Smoking cigars like cigarettes
10. A stay at a mental asylum
11. A broken neck from a quad accident
12. Always getting stoned
The father of five says he initially thought the editors at The Sunday Times “were taking the piss” when they asked him to be their new health-advice columnist, but he then thought it over and it made perfect sense. “I’ve seen literally thousands of doctors over my lifetime, and spent well over [a million pounds] on them, to the point where I sometimes think I know more about being a doctor than doctors do.”
