Rock and Roll legend Little Richard is shocking fans with a new announcement: ‘I’m not gay no more!’

During a sit-down with 3ABN, the 84-year-old singer, who was sans his signature wig and make-up, shared that he is dedicating his last years on Earth to living “like Jesus.”

“Anybody come in show business, they’re going to say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re going to say it. But God, Jesus, he made men, men, he made women, women, you know? And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live.”

“You know, all these things. So much unnatural affection. So much of people just doing everything and don’t think about God. Don’t want no parts of him,” he said in his first interview in years.

Obviously, this is a complete 180 compared to his past statements about his fluid sexual orientation.

In a 2012 GQ interview, Richard exclaimed, “We are all both male and female. Sex to me is like a smorgasbord. Whatever I feel like, I go for. What kind of sexual am I? I am omnisexual!”

And in a 1995 interview with Penthouse, the “Tutti Frutti” singer shared, “I’ve been gay all my life and I know God is a God of love, not of hate.”

Now, he believes otherwise.

“Regardless of whatever you are, he loves you. I don’t care what you are. He loves you and he can save 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.”

Clearly, Black Twitter had some thoughts on Richard’s new straight lifestyle and his new look:

    He’s absolutely right and it’s never to late to seek the forgiveness of God until you’re dead and don’t have the breathe to ask. Praise God that he asked and received his forgiveness. Everyone else still living in sin better wake up and realize that life is short and death is assured, sin is the cause and Christ is the cure. We are all sinners, but we can all be saved by His amazing Grace.

    i totally agree with little richard,homosexuality is freakish behavior as well as lesbianism an a unatural act for humans to engage was clearly made to love a woman and visa versa,anything else is unacceptable in a moral world.

  3. Thomas jones on said:

    Brother Richard needs to continue to find God in a local church without CONDEMNING OTHERS, to make hisself feel better than the next person straight or gay.

    • Denise Giles on said:

      What? He isn’t trying to condemn anyone. Homosexuality is wrong, but that’s between you and whatever God you serve! The God I serve said, man should not lie with man! And that means women too! God loves your gay self!
