Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne was never really thrilled with his family’s rise to fame or the “increased” media attention that came from their MTV reality show The Osbournes.

The show aired from 2002 through 2005 and the “Prince of Darkness” said that it was an “experiment that went totally out of control.”

“It’s as if I went to bed in one world and woke up in a completely different world. We went down to this market in Beverly Hills where you can just walk around art work and statues and dolls and all this stuff and I got this really creepy feeling. I look around. People aren’t looking, but I could feel eyes on me. I thought I was getting paranoid or something.”

Ozzy won’t be reliving that experience any time soon–he wants no part of it. His wife, Sharon Osbourne, on the other hand, loves being in the spotlight and is a judge on the hit show America’s Got Talent.

We love The Osbournes so this isn’t a direct hit to Ozzy but…the man has sold over 100 million albums and has had screaming fans throwing themselves at him on a daily basis. It is hard to believe that reality TV was really that bad. We’re just saying….
