Sharon Osbourne Claps Back at Donald Trump for Using Her Husband Ozzy’s Song without Permission
On behalf of Ozzy Osbourne, his wife, Sharon Osbourne, has come out to challenge the American President, Donald Trump for using his song without asking!
The TV presenter recently responded to an online video posted by the American President. Trump used the clip to taunt his political opponents and intended to shame the NBC for their technical glitch in the course of a rally.
He posted via twitter saying:
"Thank you @MSNBC, real professionals, @chucktodd @maddow."
Meanwhile, the Republican employed the use of Ozzy Osborne's 1980s hit song "Crazy Train" as the soundtrack of the video.
Mrs. Osbourne wasted no time in clapping back at the President; she also penned down a note which enlisted a group of songs from some musicians for the politician's use!
"..In the meantime, I have a suggestion for Mr. Trump. Perhaps he should reach out to some of his musician friends #KanyeWest (GoldDigger) @Kidrock ( I Am the Bullgod) @TedNuggetofficial (Stronghold) will allow the use of their music."

Sharon Osbourne statement, on behalf of @OzzyOsbourne, about @realDonaldTrump’s unauthorized use of Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” in what amounts to a Trump/Pence political ad. “Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train,” we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne’s music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals. In the meantime, I have a suggestion for Mr. Trump--perhaps he should reach out to some of his musician friends. Maybe #KayneWest (“Gold Digger”), @KidRock (“I Am the Bullgod”) or @TedNugentofficial (“Stranglehold”) will allow use of their music.
The 66-year-old got support from her man, as he tweeted right after to acknowledge her charge at the president. Ozzy's tweet was a throwback from his presidential-themed shirt "Make America Metal Again" in 2016. He probably prefers a musical America to the administration of Trump!
The English power couple stopped at nothing to deter the usage of their music without permission. Apart from having each other back, impressively, the pair has been together for over three decades, and have three children.
This is not the first time the TV anchor will be at loggerheads with Mr. Trump. In 2010, Mrs. Osbourne got fired by him at NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" show for showing support to the Brexit exit movement.
Famous for his controversial tweets and gestures, Trump has been warned by artists to desist from using their songs without asking.
In 2015, he was at crossroads with Steven Tyler who asked that his song shouldn't be employed for any political propaganda. The artist said this had been his stand before Trump's administration. Trump responded by saying he had legal rights.
A plethora of other artists like Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Queen, Twisted Sister, Adele have charged Mr. President not to use their music during political rallies!
Meanwhile, Mrs. Osbourne may be the newest addition to this list. "The Talk" show co-host will not back down in calling out people who think they can do or say anything.
In the course of a recent episode on the show, she referred to O.J. Simpson as a "psychopath." O.J, who's new on Twitter, explained that he's on a path to clear his name, so he newly addressed the issue of being Khloe Kardashian's father.
The red-haired TV star thought it was a "narcissistic" way to act, and inquired about why he even had a follower on Twitter.
