When Ghostwriting Goes Too Far

By Bedhead in Literature, Ozzy Osbourne, Posh and Becks, Smoking Bolts

Ozzy Osbourne

Yes, I understand that ghostwriting is a necessary thing when it comes to barely literate celebrities, and every one pretty much overlooks it when someone like Victoria Beckham, who has never read a book in all her life, has apparently “written” her very own autobiography.

Sometimes, however, the illusion just can’t be maintained. Seriously, does anyone–even the most hardcore Black Sabbath fan–actually believe that Ozzy Fucking Osbourne sat down even for a moment at a keyboard to write about his life? A life that, admittedly, he mostly doesn’t even remember?

I’d be willing to bet this project involved not only a ghostwriter, but a translator as well.

I heard they did a clever thing with the acknowledgments. It says something like, Everyone said I’d never write a book, but all I had to do was remember something… and then the next page is blank. In an interview, he did say that a lot of it, people had to ‘remind’ him. It should be fun, whether he actually wrote any part of it or not.
