Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne
confessed that if he skips an episode of X Factor
featuring his wife Sharon
among the judge panel, he's bound to have a bad time.
"I have no choice,"
Ozzy told Express
. "I have to watch X Factor. My wife kicks me in the a-s if I don't watch it - every time."
Osbourne also shared words of praise for Sharon, naming her the top reason for being alive right now. "I did a good job of being the living dead myself,"
he explained. "I'm alive because I've got a strong wife, I think. I didn't expect to live past 30 - I remember when I was 21 saying I would be dead by 40. That was all right until I was 39-and-a-half."
Finally, Ozzy was asked to share a word of advice to younger musicians, as well as his younger self. "I'm not good at giving advice to anyone else,"
he said, just to instantly add: "Drink more and take as much cocaine as you can. That's what I would tell my younger self."
Osbourne recently expressed certainty about recording another album with Black Sabbath
, saying, "Of course I'm gonna do another Black Sabbath album! I'm back."
The band's latest studio effort, "13
," saw its release on June 10 via Vertigo Records.
