'50s rock singer Little Richard hints at not being gay anymore (video)

"Tutti Frutti" singer Little Richard hints at not being gay anymore. 

Little Richard recently made his first television appearance in years and he denounced homosexuality.  

Apparently, the 84-year-old Rock & Roll singer came out as gay years ago. As pointed out in a GQ article from 2012, Richard revealed that he was gay and was even kicked out of his home by his father as a youth because of his sexuality.

"I've been gay all my life and I know God is a God of love, not of hate," GQ reported of his statement in a 1995 Penthouse interview. "How can I [put] down the fisherman when I've been fishing all my life?"

Well, it seems like a lot has changed since then. 

"You've got to live the way God wants you to live. He can save you," Richard said in his latest interview with the Christian broadcast network. Watch below:
