Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has blasted vegan meat – saying it looks like ‘alien foreskins’.
The Black Sabbath frontman made the comments in an interview with NME magazine about his lastest twelfth solo album Ordinary Man, which was released this month.
During the interview, he revealed that vegan daughter Kelly recently took him out for a plant-based breakfast – and that he wasn’t impressed by the options on offer. In fact, one of the songs on the new album – Eat Me – was inspired by two things: Armin Meiwes – the German cannibal who famously found someone online who volunteered to be eaten, and vegan meat alternatives.
“Have you tried that vegan stuff? It’s like eating sh*t,” Osbourne said.
“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*cking square with pink bits in it. It looked like alien foreskins. They were going: ‘No, it’s good – it’s got no gluten’. It’s got no f*cking food!”
Ozzy’s daughter Kelly Osbourne has credited her plant-based diet with helping her lose weight and improve her relationship with food. According to the star, she put pounds on after overcoming her drug addiction, saying: “I replaced the drugs with food and just got fatter and fatter. I’m an emotional eater. When I get upset, my diet goes out the window.”
The star enjoys food more now that she eats a vegan diet, saying: “I used to think being a vegan was boring. Now I have more fun with food now than I ever have before.”
Kelly Osbourne has also been involved in bringing attention to the horrors of agriculture and has worked with animal rights organization Mercy for Animals in the past, hosting its annual Hidden Heroes Gala in Los Angeles in 2018.
The organization described Kelly as someone who uses their platform to further social justice causes, with Celebrity Relations Manager Nik Tyler telling Plant Based News: “As a vegan, and a passionate advocate for social justice and humanitarian causes, Kelly is a shining example of someone who is using their voice to raise awareness and inspire compassion for all beings.
“We are ecstatic to have her involved with Mercy For Animals this year and we look forward to sharing a very inspirational evening together.”
