Two days ago we reported about legendary singer/songwriter Stevie Wonder who when asked in an interview with the Guardian about openly gay singer Frank Ocean responded that he thought gays were “confused”.
I think honestly, some people who think they’re gay, they’re confused. People can misconstrue closeness for love. People can feel connected, they bond. I’m not saying all [gay people are confused]. Some people have a desire to be with the same-sex. But that’s them.
Well now “Little Stevie Wonder” has apologized and tried to clear things up with a statement to The Advocate:
I’m sorry that my words about anyone feeling confused about their love were misunderstood. No one has been a greater advocate for the power of love in this world than I; both in my life and in my music. Clearly, love is love, between a man and a woman, a woman and a man, a woman and a woman and a man and a man. What I’m not confused about is the world needing much more love, no hate, no prejudice, no bigotry and more unity, peace and understanding.
Perhaps you should have said the latter part of your statement in your original interview with The Guardian Stevie.
Or were you confused?
