Note to all New Yorkers, do not play with fire. Reality TV star Jack Osbourne is giving up showbiz to become a firefighter in New York. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's youngest child is "fed-up with the selfish attitude prevalent in the entertainment industry and wants to help other people instead" sayeth the Irish Examiner. Osbourne, 19, explains: "I'm enrolling on a firefighting course this summer in New York. I'm serious. It's something I've always thought about but now is definitely the time to do it."
Now that he got rid of the fire hazzard of a Sideshow Bob 'fro, the only thing he needs to do now is lose around 50 lbs, cut the ol' apron strings and learn to scrub a toilet. Jack as a Probie? He will last about one day. But good luck, grasshopper. He seems to be sincere, maybe, when he says, "I think it would be really cool. Those guys do a tough job and I admire that. Since 9/11 I think people appreciate them more. Plus you get to wear those cool uniforms that all the chicks dig. I'm joking about that but I do want to do it - definitely. I'm looking into how to enrol now."
With Jack as a fireman and David Lee Roth as an EMT in NYC, what's next? Michael Jackson in child services?
