Iconic musician Little Richard is renouncing his past rock-and-roll lifestyle of sexual immorality, saying he has repented and turned to Jesus Christ for salvation.
In previous interviews, the famous singer referred to himself as "omnisexual," revealing in an interview with GQ five years ago that he lived a life of perversion, including orgies with men and women.
But in an extensive interview with Three Angels Broadcasting Network, an Illinois-based Christian TV and radio network, Little Richard says you can't live that way and go to heaven, referring to "unnatural affections".
"When I first came in show business they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself," he recalled.
"And anybody that come into show business, they gonna come at you and say you're gay, you're straight, you're a homosexual or something," he said. "But God, Jesus, made men men, He made women women, and you've got to live the way God wants you live…he can save you," the 84-year-old singer told Christian broadcaster 3ABN.
The singer admits he fell to the temptations of the entertainment industry.
In Charles White's biography, The Life And Times Of Little Richard, Richard, who's given name is Richard Wayne Penniman, revealed that his marriage to Ernestine Campbell fell apart due to his sexuality and being neglectful.
"You know, all these things. So much unnatural affection," the singer told the network. "So much of people just doing everything and don't think about God. Don't want no parts of Him."
