As a cancer survivor, Osbourne also confesses, "I never thought I'd get here, let alone everything else. My life now is a bonus, really."

The Rocket Man has spoken.
Elton John says he has the perfect person in mind to play him in an upcoming movie about his life, which his husband David Furnish recently called "very extraordinary and unique."
"No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb," John, 64, tells the Los Angeles Times.
There has been speculation about who might play John in the biopic – titled Rocketman – with Scottish actor James McAvoy recently rumored to be the frontrunner.

Close friends and family of the late Elizabeth Taylor gathered Sunday afternoon to remember the beloved Hollywood legend during a private memorial on the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, PEOPLE has learned.
With Taylor's good friend Colin Farrell hosting the 75-minute celebration in the lot's Steven J. Ross Theater, the tribute was attended by Taylor's children Michael and Christopher Wilding, Liza Tivey and Maria Burton, as well as close friends Michael Caine, stepdaughter Kate Burton and Sir Elton John, who sang a stirring rendition of "Blue Eyes" to close the program.
"To say that the world got smaller, emptier, darker and lonelier when we lost Elizabeth is an understatement," Sir Elton John told the 400 guests during his heartfelt remarks. "She was a true rock, a pioneer, a pathfinder, a trailblazer and a star who will always burn bright and always had time to laugh at herself."

Who can hold a candle to Elton John?
The singer's husband David Furnish recently revealed that they've started work on Rocketman, a movie about John's "very extraordinary and unique life," he tells Entertainment Weekly.
While Scottish actor James McAvoy is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Sir Elton, we've got some other ideas for the role – especially when it comes to slipping in to John's glamorous (and spangly) '70s wardrobe.
On our list: comic actor David Cross (of Arrested Development); The League's Paul Scheer, who more than bares a passing resemblance to the '70s-era star; Mike Myers, who, apart from being a comedy star, is musically-inclined; and Scottish star Ewan McGregor who's already posed as a glam rocker in Todd Haynes's Velvet Goldmine.
