One of Sweden's biggest TV stars, Rickard Sjöberg, has revealed that he declined to interview Ozzy Osbourne a few years ago because doing so would have only "strengthened" Osbourne's position as the unofficial "Prince of Darkness." "To me, Ozzy is so strongly associated with a questionable lifestyle, Satanism and evil messages that I felt I couldn't do the job justice considering the format of these interviews. It would have just strengthened his position," Sjöberg told the newspaper Aftonbladet. The 34-year-old is a devoted Christian and admits he can't drink a bottle of non-alcoholic beer without throwing up.
