Sharon Osbourne has had a turbulent year with her body image after she started taking Ozempic, a diabetes drug, last December in a bid to lose weight. Ozempic was designed to help manage blood sugar levels for those with Type-2 diabetes, but it has been heavily publicised for its side effect of dramatic weight loss. Sharon confessed she had lost around 42lbs, now under 100lbs total, heartbreakingly saying she was “never a beauty”.
Speaking to the DailyMail, the 71-year-old shared: “I’ve never really cared what people say about the way I look because I know I’ve paid a fortune to try and look attractive.” Despite her confident and direct manner, Sharon also suffers from insecurity. She came off the drug after feeling she was now “too thin” but is struggling to gain weight back.
The X Factor judge mimicked Kanye and his wife Bianca for Halloween and feels she is now “too thin”. Sharon has never been shy when discussing her journey with cosmetic surgery, dieting, and her body. She continued: “I was never a beauty. I was never blessed that way. I was blessed with a pair of balls instead of great t**s!”
In a warning against Ozempic, Sharon said not to “give it to teenagers”, calling the drug “too easy”. She added: “You can lose so much weight and it’s easy to become addicted to that, which is very dangerous. I couldn’t stop losing weight and now I’ve lost 42lb and I can’t afford to lose any more.”
Besides her own health, Sharon also gave a little update on her husband Ozzy, who has been unwell for the past few years. She described Ozzy as being “like a piece of china” and said: “It’s just been heartbreaking for me to see my husband in a position where he’s not self-sufficient, he needs help. He was so vibrant, with such a zest for life. But you learn to adapt.” Ozzy was forced to cancel his tour in February and hasn't been on the road for quite some time, having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s two years ago. He also has suffered from spinal problems and his wife shared that the rocker had been through seven surgeries in five years.
Sharon's message to everyone is to be careful what you wish for. She's urged to not take the drug if you're a teenager, and to be aware of the consequences of taking it.
