Sharon Osbourne: Why She Called Nikki Sixx an ‘A–Hole’
Sharon Osbourne is not one to hold back ever, and she had some colorful comments about Nikki Sixx on the latest episode of The Osbournes Podcast.
During the episode, the conversation landed on the time when Ozzy Osbourne snorted a line of ants while on tour with Motley Crue in 1984. Of course, this gross incident was chronicled in the Crue’s infamous memoir, The Dirt, and its subsequent film adaptation.
Jack Osbourne asks Ozzy whether the story is true, and he says yes. Jack then asks Sharon about it. She says she wasn’t there for it, but she noted she always tried to keep her distance from Motley Crue when they were with her husband.
Sharon then says, “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 advertised their movie on Netflix, it’s a picture of a guy imitating Ozzy. Why isn’t the ad campaign a picture of Motley Crue?”
At this time, Ozzy is expressing mild annoyance with Sharon’s comments. However, Jack answers Sharon’s question by saying Ozzy is bigger than Motley Crue.
Ozzy is now trying to move on from the topic, but Sharon cuts in to call Sixx an “a–hole.” When Ozzy disagrees, Sharon replies, “Yes, he f—in’ is.”
As of publishing, Sixx has not responded publicly about Sharon’s comments that insinuate he had something to do with the use of the ants story in The Dirt book and movie and the use of Ozzy in promoting the film.
Here’s hoping this doesn’t turn into a war of words, like that time in February 2022 between Sixx and Eddie Vedder. Actually, strike that. Sixx vs. Vedder was delightfully random and kind of fun. Sixx: You’re up!
