Little Richard Disavows the ‘Unnatural Affections’ of Homosexuality
Rock ‘n’ roll legend Little Richard, who has previously described himself as both “gay” and “omnisexual,” has a new outlook on life at 84 years old.
“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.”
The “Tutti Frutti” singer, who no longer wears makeup or wigs, also spoke out against “unnatural affections.”
“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.

Remembering David Cassidy: A Candid Chat About Fame, Fans and Pop
I first met David Cassidy, the former star of The Partridge Family who died Tuesday, during an interview about two decades ago. Shortly thereafter, we hung out together backstage after he completed a set of bubblegum hits that had thousands of 40-something-year-old women screaming like they were teenagers again.
We spoke on multiple occasions since then and, well before his dementia set in, I caught up with him while he was golfing for an on-the-record interview that continued when he returned home. The interview, though, remained unpublished, until now.
Fats Domino, Architect Of Rock 'N' Roll, Dead At 89
Fats Domino, one of the architects of rock 'n' roll, died Tuesday at his daughter's suburban New Orleans home. Haydee Ellis, a family friend, confirmed the news to NPR. Mark Bone, chief investigator for the Jefferson Parish coroner's office, tells NPR that Domino, who was 89, died of natural causes.
In the 1940s, Antoine Domino Jr. was working at a mattress factory in New Orleans and playing piano at night. Both his waistline and his fan base were expanding. That's when a bandleader began calling him "Fats." From there, it was a cakewalk to his first million-selling record — "The Fat Man." It was Domino's first release for Imperial Records, which signed him right off the bandstand.

The singer was found in his home in California Thursday morning.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the singer was found in his home in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County on Thursday morning.

Bennington had struggled with drug use in the past, and, according to TMZ, had spoken about taking his own life after being a victim of child abuse. The singer opened up about his experience with drugs in a 2016 interview with TeamRock.com, saying, at one point, he was “on 11 hits of acid a day.”

Freddie Mercury could still be alive today if HIV drugs had been available 'just a few months' sooner, legendary guitarist Brian May has said.
The Queen rocker rues the fact that his friend died from AIDS-related pneumonia so soon before antiretroviral drugs became available to patients.
May also revealed that Freddie lost most of his foot as the condition ravaged his body.
He told the Sunday Times Magazine that the timing of the frontman's final illness was cruel for those who loved him.
