It must be tough being Jack Osbourne. His father is a multi-millionaire and rock icon. He is featured on a hit cable TV show. He has his own record label. Yet, Ozzy’s son Jack Osbourne says he admitted himself into rehab recently because of his use of the painkiller OxyContin, the wonderdrug of trailer trash across America.

In a recent interview, Osbourne said he was taking the painkiller OxyContin and it became too much for him.

“I took myself out of the picture for a second and I looked around at every single person in the room, at who they were, how old they were and what they had going on in their lives,” Osbourne told MTV. “A lot of them were near 30, unemployed, living off their parents. There were heroin addicts, there were the world’s biggest couch potatoes. And it was like, ‘I don’t want to be like that. I don’t want my life to be controlled by a drug.'”

Next thing you know, Kelly will be checking herself into rehab to get off Dexatrim.

In Houston music news, meoWcifer will soon launch its website. Stay tuned for more information.
