Ozzy Osbourne says he is "getting a bit sick" of Lady Gaga, saying the pop star is "just too overexposed".
Lady Gaga has made headlines with sexual music videos, wild performances and a raw meat dress she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. She has not commented on Osbourne's remarks, made to Us Weekly magazine.
"I do think Lady Gaga should take a break for a little while," Osbourne told Us. "She's getting to be too much, and she doesn't watch the exposure of her clothes. She's just too overexposed. I like her, but I'm getting a bit sick of her. When I turn on the TV, I see her wearing another lamp shade or whatever. She needs to take a break, I think, for an hour or so."
"I love her, I think she's really, really entertaining, but she's doing a bit too much," he added. "Every day it is something else. The specialness of her is gonna get killed if she doesn't calm it down. Who manages her? Someone should whisper in her ear and say back off for a couple of months -- let people gain interest back. Let people want you, you know?"
Osbourne, a 62-year-old heavy metal rocker who starred on the reality show "The Osbournes", has shocked audiences himself during his career,. He famously bit off the head of a living bat during a concert in 1982. He said he thought it was made of rubber.
