Ozzy Osborne: `A Bit Of Fun' NEW YORK (AP) - Heavy metal rock star Ozzy Osbourne says he's not into Satanism or drugs. He just wants to have fun. ``All I really do is have Halloween every night I'm on stage,'' Osbourne said in an interview scheduled to air Friday on Channel One, the Whittle Communications news and information program for teen-agers that began broadcasting into schools March 5. In a sermon earlier this month, Roman Catholic Cardinal John J. O'Connor said that heavy-metal music spiked with satanic lyrics created an atmosphere conducive to devil worship and demonic possession. Osbourne said it wasn't so. ``There's no demonic message or anything freaky about it, it's just a bit of fun for the night and why not?'' The rock star also said he condemns drug use. ``It's bad because you're living in a total fantasy world,'' he said. ``When you think you're right, you're wrong and when you think you're wrong, you can't make the right decision. I'm under psychiatric help for what drugs have done to me and it's a sad existence.'' AP-NY-03-16-90 1241EST (C) Copyright 1989, Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
