No more than a week after their publication, Stevie Wonder has been forced to apologize over remarks he made on Frank Ocean‘s sexuality in an interview with The Guardian.
Full story below…
In an interview with the British publication, Wonder had this to say on Ocean’s truth baring letter:
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.
However, he has now retracted the above statement by way of a statement released to The Advocate hours ago. A statement which reads:
“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. Period.”
