Ozzy Osbourne's Puff addiction

Ozzy Osbourne is so addicted to a British breakfast cereal he is having it shipped over to Los Angeles.
The rocker - who divides his time between his homes in the UK and the US - has developed a taste for Sugar Puffs, a honey-glazed wheat treat, and was disappointed when he discovered they weren't available in America.
Ozzy has now sent a request to the cereal's manufacturers Honey Monster Foods and a consignment is new being sent to his Los Angeles mansion.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "One of the team at Honey Monster Foods received an email with a request from Ozzy Osbourne's people in Los Angeles asking for them to ship over some boxes of Sugar Puffs.
"They said it was his favourite breakfast cereal and he was cross because he couldn't find any over there."
Meanwhile, Ozzy is reportedly struggling to write his autobiography, because he can't remember anything that's happened to him.
The former Black Sabbath frontman - who successfully fought addictions to drink and drugs - signed a reputed £1 million book deal with publishers Little Brown almost two years ago, but the tome is unlikely to be ready in time for the scheduled May release date.
A source said: "I can't imagine the book being finished because Ozzy hasn't written anything - he hasn't even got a ghostwriter yet.
"So it is going to be some time before the book actually appears, if it ever does."
