Little Richard Hints He’s No Longer Gay

At the tender age of 84, Little Richard is opening up about his love for God and how despite people being gay or bi-sexual, the Lord still loves them. In the past, the rock ‘n’ roll legend described himself as ‘gay’, but now says he’s dedicating his final years to living holy “like Jesus”.  He also insisted men should live as men, and women should live as women, the way God intended.

Give everything you’ve got to Jesus and you’ll feel oh, so much better.

He continues,

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. 

Richard, who no longer wears wig and make-up, also said that he believes if a person’s sexual orientation wasn’t in line with God’s design, that God is able to fix it.

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.

    That pic is not Little Ritchard

    • Yes, it is. That’s what he looks like now. He no longer wears the wigs, make-up, etc.

    • MsPam

      That is Little Richard! People have not seen him in a while!

    • Jack Steen

      Oh, but it is.

  • Betty

    The Headline should be the the most interesting thing but I’m more fascinated by the fact that this man has been 2 complexions darker then what he appeared his whole life!!

    • Sharona Thomas-Wilson

      Not necessarily. Black people get darker as they are. My grandmother and aunt were Raven Simones color they are now whitney houstons color.

      • Kimmie

        Most likely that’s because of repeated exposure to sun instead of aging. Those people can go two summers in a row without being in extra Sun light and return to their normal colors that’s just how Black skin is.

      • Clirey

        I find quite the opposite. Most get lighter as they age..

      • Lanetta Lorraine Roy

        That’s true!

    • Kimmie

      Betty, if you look at his old pictures you will see he had both light and dark pictures. The light pictures made him look like a corpse, because he had make up caked on his face the way they do when preparing a body for burial. Even the spots where the hair gel was on his hairline that removed his make up revealed significantly darker skin underneath. Google him for me and you will see what I mean. I’m just glad he didn’t bleach his skin if he had he wouldn’t be alive right now, I’m sure.

    • khalilah james

      He swore by Pancake #9 color foundation…which made him appear lighter

    • Wilma Ridder

      because of all of the make up he used to wear….

  • Shag

    Give him time and he will do what he always has: flip-flop.

  • Leroy Mincey

    Amazing how the miracle in this mans life of salvation, has been reduce a discussion about the level of melanin in his skin. Wow, talk about, “missing the point” people if you are not a Born Again Believer in Christ Yeshua, you are destined to an eternal hell, that was intended for satan and his demons, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


      Quiet, Tard. Its insulting to gay people. This old fruit is now impotent and nobody wants him so its easy to be “not gay”. Hes still gay. He still thinks of men. He still touches himself thinking of men. Now go away and take your Jeebus with you!!

      • Earl Lashley

        I had intended to tell the deluded fool above that. Thank you.

      • Clirey

        Personally, I think this is fake news.

    • Antoine Oso

      Go gnash your own teeth. I don’t believe in any christ yeshua or any other made up deities or demons or hell, so we shall not weep or gnash teeth. Go and take the rod out of the rod stuck up your ass.

    • Lanetta Lorraine Roy



    Hes impotent and hideous so its easy for him to say he isn’t gay anymore. The Jeebus disease runs deep. Sad.

  • Antoine Oso

    Is that because nobody will fuck him now? So he no longer has to be gay since he will be untouched anyway?

  • Tonya Little-Mccoy

    Remember he wear alot of foundation make up and lip stick. So that is why his complexion is different!

  • Candy

    Ohhh, but in the midnight hour…

  • Cyn

    Praise God for salvation! Jesus saves!

  • Mike Rice

    He’s 84. He’s gotta tidy up his office and get his presentation ready.
    He’s got a big meeting coming up his schedule.

  • Schana Taylor

    Isn’t he dead??

  • Deborah Lyman

    SMH, these comments about skin color!! Phew!!
