July 1, 1975: At Melody Fair, Tom Jones says liberated women 'are not pretty'

While saying accepting kisses and listening to the screams of female fans are a part of the job, flashy singer Tom Jones told reporters in a Niagara County news conference 40 years ago today that he “doesn’t understand” women’s liberation, doesn’t know what “they want to be liberated from” and that “you’ll notice a lot of these women who talk about liberation are not pretty.”

One has to wonder if there were fewer kisses and screams at that evening’s concert?
