Ozzy Paranoid About Russia Trip
OZZY OSBOURNE was paranoid about his trip to Russia last month (May07) - because his housekeeper was convinced he'd be kidnapped by the Mafia.
The rocker performed shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg but admits he spent much of his trip to the former Soviet Union convinced he would be abducted.
Osbourne says, "I have a Russian woman working at the house, and I told her, 'Oh, you know, I'm going to Moscow.'
"She goes, 'You are? You will be taking bodyguard..? They look at you and know you're foreigner - you wake up hog-tied.'
"She tells me I'm going to be kidnapped and have my eyes poked out."
