The Black Sabbath rocker appeared on Good Morning America Monday and opened up about his marriage, telling contributor Jesse Palmer that he and Sharon are overcoming their problems. Palmer addressed Sharon's public announcement that she and Ozzy were separating, but Ozzy was quick to characterize it as a "bump in the road."
"It's back on track again," Ozzy said. His son, Jack Osbourne, who joined him in the interview then chimed in to give his perspective. "As a married person myself, marriage isn't like, 'Hey we're married all is good.' It's just life."
Ozzy also explained that there's no such thing as a perfect marriage all the time, especially when you've been together such a long time.
"'And they both lived happily ever after,'" Ozzy quipped. "I'd like to find the person who wrote that and poke him in the eye with a burning stick."
He added, "Some days are good. Some days are terrible. Some days you just drift apart for a while but you get back on the horse."
Fans thought the couple might have been able to work out some of their issues after Sharon was spotted wearing her wedding ring to X Factor UK auditions last month. The surprising sighting came about one month after Sharon announced her split from Ozzy after 33 years together.
"It's right for me," she said at the time. "I have no idea what I am going to be doing for the rest of my life. I don't know where I am going, who I'm going with and I just need time to think and really think about myself and what I really want for the rest of my life because this is really like getting to the last chapter of the book and I really want to think about it very carefully where I want to go."
She added, "I am 63 years of age and I can't keep living like this."
At the time, Sharon didn't definitively say they were going to divorce. "I honestly don't know," she said. "I can't cry about anything because there's nothing to cry about."
Sharon announced the separation after Ozzy's alleged affair with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pughcame to light.
