Ozzy Osbourne to be the Dear Abby of Rolling Stone

What publication in their right mind recruits Ozzy Osbourne to dish out advice to readers? Rolling Stone, that's who. According to Beat Crave, the Prince of Darkness is getting a health advice column in RS.

He has already written a response to Adam in Brooklyn, some schmuck who isn't putting two and two together when it comes to his girlfriend always claiming to be too tired for sex.

This was Ozzy's response: "As I've always said to Sharon, there are 24 hours in a day, so it shouldn't be hard to make sure you spend at least one of them together. Go on a date. Have dinner together. Or put on a wig and a false beard, check into a B&B and [bleep] the [bleep] out of each other, like you're having an affair . . . maybe she just wants more excitement in her life."

You know, that wasn't half bad. Maybe this "Dear Abby" gig could go really well after all.
