UPDATE: Did Ozzy Snort Ants? Let's find out! Ozzy says Yes. Sharon thinks "Nikki Sixx is an Ass****" (Nikki Responds)
THIS is the stuff Legends are made of! The Osbournes podcast is a true treasure trove! For instance, Did Ozzy REALLY snort a line of ants as depicted in Motley Crue's 2019 bio-pic, The Dirt?
In Episode 6 it was brought up and appeared to get awkward as Ozzy didn't deny it and Sharon just wasn't a fan of her Husband and Motley Crue hanging out.
Did Ozzy Osbourne actually snort a line of ants while on tour with Mötley Crüe in the '80s? As for whether that story is actually true, that depends on which Osbourne you ask. Ozzy says yes, but Sharon isn't sure.
From The Osbournes:
Jack: "Did you actually snort ants?"
Jack: "Did he actually snort ants Mom?"
Sharon: "I was not there, thank God. I used to try and stay away from Motley when they were with Ozzy. I don't know. All I know is that I think it made their movie. And I wanna know why, now we're on the subject, of why, when they advertise their movie on Netflix, it's a picture of a guy imitating Ozzy. Why isn't the ad campaign a picture of Motley Crue?"
Jack: "'Cause Ozzy Osbourne's bigger than Motley Crue."
Sharon: "No, the thing is, I just think it's an invasion."
Ozzy: "No. No. No. Stop. Stop. Stop. Let's move on."
Sharon: "Nikki Sixx. Ass****."
Ozzy: "No, he's not."
Sharon: "Yes, he [bleeping] is."
Jack: "So, did Dad snort the line of ants?
Ozzy: "I did, I was there, I did it," Ozzy says. "It's my nostril ... I was drunk, and I did it."
It should be noted that, Jake E. Lee, Ozzy's touring guitarist at the time, has denied that the ant-snorting occurred, but he did confirm that Ozzy snorted a tiny spider once.
