MTV have announced that Ozzy Osbourne will be honored as an MTV Global Icon. The award will be handed out during the European Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland on November 9.
Osbourne, who has had a close relationship with MTV in the past through his reality show "The Osbournes," is the fifth recipient of the award. Previous recipients are Eminem, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi, and Queen.
"We’re mad about this ‘Madman’ and can’t wait for him to collect this much deserved prize at the 2014 MTV EMA, live from Glasgow on November 9," said MTV in a statement about this year's Global Icon recipient.
Osbourne recently talked about plans for yet another Black Sabbath album, and tour, which would be the band's last. Recording and writing is supposed to start sometime in early 2015.
