Singer apologizes to the women he slept with

Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall has apologized for sleeping with hundreds of women at the height of his fame. He estimates that he slept with over 1,000 women during the 1980s, when his band was at the heights of their success. He told The Guardian: “I regret the philandering. In fact, can I issue a public apology through The Guardian? They know who they are, and I’m truly sorry. When I had the fame, it went crazy. Between 1985 and 1987, I would sleep with about three women a day, every day. I never said no. This was what I wanted from being a popstar. I was living the dream and my only regret is that I hurt some really good girls.” Justifying his actions, he added, “I wanted love from every single woman on the planet because I didn’t have my mother’s love. It was an addiction that took me to my darker period from 1996 to 2001, when I really came close to the gutter — I was more into drinking than seducing… I never really got the emotional contact that I craved.”

    Unless he raped them, no need to apologize, they knew what they were doing.

    I think that’s very mature of him.

    There must be a lot of slutty, desperate women in the world. That’s pretty sad. Have some dignity, the world would be a better place.

    He should only apologize if he didn’t satisfy them during intercourse….

    He probably didn’t. Men who sleep with that many women regard them as prostitutes, meaning, they’re just objects. They don’t worry about satisfying the woman, because to them, she’s not even a person. He’s probably really bad in bed.
