Ozzy Osbourne is overwhelmed by how famous he and his family have become over such a short space of time.

The former Black Sabbath frontman was a famous face before his MTV reality show - but the OSBOURNES catapulted Ozzy and his family into superstardom.

It peaked with a concert performance at London's Buckingham Palace to celebrate British royal Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee in 2002 - and Ozzy admits he often feels uncomfortable with how famous he has become.

He says, "Being famous in the rock 'n' roll world and being famous in the TV world is like the difference between a drop of water and the Pacific Ocean.

"When it came to playing PARANOID at Buckingham Palace it felt very weird. I said to SHARON. 'Things are happening way too fast and way too big.'

"It happened so quickly that we didn't have time to think about it."
