Little Richard Surfaces w/Surprising New View On Being Gay & He looks Totally Different
It’s a long time since we’ve seen the iconic rock n’ roll star, Little Richard speak publicly…or even seen him at all. That wait is over though because he surfaced in a new interview on the Three Angels Broadcasting Network and shocked the hell outta many. For one, he’s given up his wigs and makeup and instead rocked a comb-back…a far cry from what we’re used to seeing. But that was the least of the shock he delivered…
I Am Delivert!
You see, it’s also been many years -decades even- that Little Richard has been an openly gay man, and at one point, bisexual. Long before it was “acceptable” for someone of the LGBT community to openly embrace all of who they are, without fear of public backlash, Little Richard was well before his time. Throughout the 60’s 70’s and beyond, he made no excuses for his ability to love who he is as a bisexual/gay man and his fans appreciated that realness.
But today folks, it’s a new day in the life of the 84 year old. It seems that after decades of being a proud member of the LGBT community, the soul rock icon is giving us the “I’m Not Gay No More…I’m Delivert” line…
‘Live Like Jesus’
In his interview with 3ABN he dropped a few hints about his sexuality and why everyone should ‘live like Jesus in order to get into heaven.’ Check out what he said below:
“Give everything you’ve got to Jesus and you’ll feel oh, so much better. […] You know it’s just like everybody is turning one way or the other. This man here, when I first came into show business, they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself. And anybody come in show business, they’re gonna say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re gonna say it. But the God, Jesus, made men, men…he made women, women..you know. And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live.”
‘God Can Fix You’
Little Richard also had some advised any LGBT person to give it to God to help them change their sexuality so they can become “holy like Jesus.” Told y’all this is waaaaay different from the Little Richard we know. See what else he said below…
“Regardless of whatever you are He loves you. I don’t care what you are. He loves you and He can save you, and He will save you and He can help you. He will help you. All you’ve got to do is say, ‘Lord, take me as I am. I’m a sinner.’ But we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The only holy, righteous person is Jesus and He wants us to be just like Him because in order to go to Heaven, we’ve got to look like Him,” Richard said. “I don’t want to sing Rock and Roll no more. … I want to be holy like Jesus.”
