Ozzy Osbourne has been away from the public's eye after his Parkinson's diagnosis.
Rock icon Ozzy Osbourne's new look has made him the center of attention. According to The Sun, Osbourne, who is always seen with his jet black hair gave it up for a natural grey look. The singer was spotted in his new look while he was out shopping with his wife, Sharon.
Dressed in a black T-shirt, the artist was pictured looking at himself in the mirror while waiting for his wife in the car. The singer has been away from the limelight since his Parkinson's diagnosis became public in January 2020. Osbourne along with his wife, Sharon had previously opened up about their fight with Parkinson's Disease that began in 2019.
"It's been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year's Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves," said the Black Sabbath singer. Meanwhile, Sharon stated, "It's PRKN 2... it's not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it's -- it's like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day," according to Good Morning America.
The news of the illness took an emotional toll on Osbourne. The singer, who used to spent a lot of time on the road decided to shut himself away from his beloved fans. Having lived a public life for most of his life, Osbourne found it really hard. Besides, with Osbourne's unexpected disappearance, rumors of him being on his death bed were circulated. Eventually, he decided to speak out about the illness.
"I'm no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore 'cause it's like I'm running out of excuses, you know?" said the 71-year-old, according to Good Morning America. He also revealed he was feeling much better than his initial health situation. "I feel better. I've owned up to the fact that I have -- a case of Parkinson's. And I just hope they hang on and they're there for me because I need them. I wanna see my people, you know. It's like I'm -- I miss them so much," said Osbourne, according to Good Morning America. Sharon, too, assured fans that her husband would soon be back to entertain his fans.
Meanwhile, Osbourne's last television appearance happened in July as a part of the Celebrity Watch Party finale - the US version of Gogglebox. Recently, Ozzy's son Jack shared a picture of him standing next to him. The father and son were also joined by Jack's girlfriend Aimee and his kids Andy, Pearl, and Minnie. "Vacation vibes!" wrote the singer's son, according to The Sun.
Previously, Sharon too had gone through a transformation. The TV host, who was always seen in her signature deep, auburn hair color for decades decided to go for a more platinum grey hair look. Sharon’s colorist, Jack Martin, referred to the change as a "classic transformation. "Sharon explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster," said the colorist, according to Hollywood Life. He also revealed that the complete transformation was achieved after 8 hours of hard work.
Speaking of her decision to change her signature hair colour, the singer stated, "I was just so fed up of going and having it dyed and having it dyed, and I just was like, I can’t do this anymore. I’m like, why am I trying to do something or be something that I’m not? So, just be who you are," said Sharon, according to Metro. She also revealed that her husband thinks that her new hair makes her look like Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada.
