Ozzy Osbourne Compares Vegan Bacon To 'Alien Foreskins'

In news that may not be altogether too shocking, it turns out singer Ozzy Osbourne isn't a huge fan of the wave of plant-based food. In fact, he absolutely hates it - having compared vegan bacon to 'alien foreskins'.

In an interview with NME, the star discussed everything from his 12th solo album Ordinary Man and his Parkinson's diagnosis through to giant bowls of cocaine and working with rapper Post Malone.

But the topic that really seemed to get the former Black Sabbath frontman riled up was the influx of vegan meat alternatives, which inspired his new song 'Eat Me'.

"Have you tried that vegan stuff?" he asked NME interviewer Kevin Perry.

"It's like eating s***. It's got no f***ing taste.

"My daughter took me to a vegan Sunday breakfast. I looked at the menu and it's got bacon and scrambled eggs. I thought, you can't go wrong with that. The bacon comes and it's f**ing square with pink bits in it. It looked like alien foreskins.

"They were going: 'No, it's good - it's got no gluten'.

Aside from his hatred of vegan bacon, the 71-year-old also talked about his Parkinson's disease, which he opened up about last month.

Ozzy said: "I didn't say it before, but I knew I had Parkinson's f***ing 18 years ago.

"I was diagnosed in 2003 and I've been doing gigs since then."

His wife Sharon added: "He was born with a gene called the PARK2 gene, but it wasn't active.

"It's like being born with certain cancer genes. They're not active, and it's usually stress or shock to the body that makes them active."

Ozzy shared the news about his Parkinson's last month, speaking candidly in an interview with ABC's Good Morning America alongside his wife Sharon, 67.

Saying he could no longer hide his health struggles, the rock icon explained it all started when he had to have surgery last year and began to experience nerve pain.

Speaking of his fans, Ozzy said: "I feel better now I've owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkinson's. I just hope they hang out and are there for me because I need them.

"They're my, they're my air, you know." With Ozzy getting emotional, Sharon added: "It just means so much to him what he does, he loves to perform, it is the air that he breathes.

"This is the longest he's ever been home and it's time for him to get back on the road because he's driving me mad."
