Speaking to Metal Hammer magazine, the rocker explained that his wife Sharon was the driving force behind reality show The Osbournes.
"You know what? That TV celebrity that I became, I f**king didn't like it," he said. "Sharon loves flying around the world and being a TV star. I don't. I can't stand it, because my heart is in music.
"I hated every second of it. She kept pushing me into this f**king stuff. I said, 'I tell you what, Sharon, don't even f**ing ask me, don't even go there with me in future, because I don't want to know'."
The former Black Sabbath frontman admitted that he wants to be remembered for his music rather than his on-screen antics.
"If it comes to the point, at the end of my days, [that] I'm going to be remembered as a chatshow host or something... well, I don't want that to happen, you know?"
The Osbournes aired on MTV between 2002 and 2005.
