Legend Grants First TV Interview In Over Two Decades
It’s been over 20 years since the last time Little Richard gave a TV interview. Notoriously private, Richard has spent the better part of the last two decades shutting down requests for interviews, preferring to live out the rest of his life quietly and away from the chaos and bright lights that accompany fame and even swearing that he’d never perform again, his faith more than enough to sustain him these days.
Until earlier this year, when something changed: Little Richard granted his first television interview in over two decades, sitting down with WSIL News 3’s Collin Dorsey ahead of an appearance on Three Angels Broadcast Network to talk about what ultimately forced him to choose between his fame and his faith.
“I made up my mind that I’d rather have Jesus than anything the world could afford today,” he said simply.
While a great many things have changed and Little Richard has mellowed out since the last time we saw him, one thing still remains the same: he’s still the snappiest, sharpest damned dresser the rock world’s ever seen.
