Ozzy Osbourne and the Sunset Strip will be reunited in a big way next weekend as the Sunset Strip Music Festival kicks off Thursday night with a special tribute event to the metal legend at the House of Blues. Ozzy will cap the three-day fest on Saturday night with a performance on one of the two outdoor stages on the Strip, which will be blocked off -- a rare event not seen in recent memory -- between Doheny and San Vicente. It's been nearly 40 years since Ozzy has performed a full set on the Strip.

Like anyone else, Ozzy Osbourne would like some privacy when he's using the john. It's simple courtesy. So the 12 cameras recording "real life" in the Osbourne home six days a week discreetly look away when Ozzy--or someone in the family--is called to the water closet.

Diamonds may be forever, but possession could prove fleeting. Beverly Hills police were summoned to investigate after a dispute arose over who gets to keep a necklace awarded in a raffle at a New Year's Eve party hosted by the Osbournes. A female agent from the talent agency ICM says she won the necklace fair and square, but Sharon Osbourne, wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, maintains in a police report that the raffle was strictly for invited guests and that the agent was not invited.
