Rock icon Ozzy Osbourne jokingly praised the devil for keeping him safe throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite his reputation as rock’s prince of darkness, Osbourne is no Satanist.
“I am a Christian,” he told The Guardian in 2014. “I have been baptized a Christian. I went to Sunday school. I never really cared about it because… I didn’t. My idea of paradise makes me feel good. A place where people are good with each other. This world scares me.
Osbourne, 72, has suffered from a range of health issues in recent years, including a staph infection, a case of the flu that turned into pneumonia, Parkinson’s disease and injuries from a fall from a bicycle in 2019 that left him “in agony beyond anything I have ever experienced before in my life,” he told Rolling Stone at the time.
