Enlarge "People keep going on at me about that – is it a big deal over there?" asks the former Black Sabbath singer.

Ozzy Osbourne: “I Don’t Really Understand Brexit.”

  • Axl Rosenberg

The fact that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and leaders of the European Union formally agreed upon a Brexit deal over the weekend is big news, even if the deal is likely to be rejected by the U.K. Parliament. So little wonder that journalists keep asking British musicians for their hot take on the subject.

Some of these artists, like Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, are in favor of the U.K. withdrawing from the European Union. Others, like Queen’s Roger Taylor, Blur’s Damon Albarn, and Sting, not so much.

And then there’s Ozzy Osbourne, who apparently has no idea what the hell Brexit even is.

When The Big Issue recently asked Ozzy for his opinion on the divisive deal, Tony Iommi’s biggest fan responded thusly:

“People keep going on at me about that – is it a big deal over there? What will happen with it? Are people voting in or out, what’s going on? I don’t read the newspapers and I don’t really talk politics because I don’t really know. I don’t really understand Brexit.”

On the one hand, it seems irresponsible for an adult not to read the newspaper and have absolutely no clue what Brexit is, regardless of where he currently lives — after all, ultimately, this is an issue that will global consequences. On the other hand, Ozzy’s brain has been so clearly fried for so very long that no one really expects him to know what day of the week it is or why he came in this room, let alone what Brexit is. So.
