Ozzy Osbourne: "I've Set My Bed On Fire More Times Than I Haven't" (9/12/2005)

Ozzy Osbourne opened up about rehab, death and fatherhood to Playboy.

On the number of brushes with death he's had, the Prince of Darkness revealed:

"Every day from the age of 19 to about 55, I overdosed every day. I was hospitalized a few times. I've done some monumentally (bleeping) dumb things. I've set my bed on fire more times than I haven't. I used to pass out all the time with a cigarette in my hand."

On Rehabs he has spent time in:

"Betty Ford is a good one. And a place called Promises, in Malibu, which is like a [bleeping] Hollywood camp resort for wealthy [bleeping] lunatics," Osbourne tells the October issue of the mag. "Hazelden, in Minnesota, is a really hard one. They do not [bleep] around. I checked out because it scared me. They use a thing called tough love, where they're like 'You [bleeping] piece of [bleep]!' I was like, 'I felt like a piece of [bleep] before. That's why I am paying you all this money. You don't need to tell me every day.'"

On Colling Farrell playing the "Ozzy" role:

"Who the [bleep] is Colin Farrell?"
