Post Malone: Ozzy Osbourne Will “Keep Kicking Ass” Following Parkinson’s Diagnosis
A week after the sad news that Ozzy Osbourne has been diagnosed with Parkin II, a form of Parkinson’s disease, Post Malone has sent out an emphatic message about his Take What You Want collaborator that The Prince Of Darkness is “going to keep kicking ass”.
Praising Ozzy for his strength in a new interview with Rolling Stone, the U.S. rapper admitted that he was completely unaware of the heavy metal icon’s condition. “Working with him and hanging out with him and being around him, you can’t tell,” he said. “You can tell he has a little difficulty getting around, but he’s so strong.”
Post also added that he believes even more music is to come from the 71-year-old – whose new album Ordinary Man is due out on February 21. “I know he’s been working on a new project with a bunch of my friends, [and] I’m really excited for him because he’s so passionate about it and it sounds incredible; he sounds incredible,” he said.

Ozzy’s wife Sharon revealed last week of her husband’s diagnosis: “It’s Parkin’s II, which a form of Parkinson’s. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does effect certain nerves in your body.
“It’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day,” she added.
Ozzy is on the cover of this week’s issue of Kerrang! discussing his upcoming solo album, getting back in the game, and how music saved his life.
