Newcomer Frank Ocean admits to being bisexual

Singer-songwriter and rapper Frank Ocean has been in the gossip headlines for the past few days with heavy speculation swirling around his sexuality. The talented newcomer has worked with crème de la of R&B and Hip-Hop including power couple Jay-Z & Beyonce plus Kanye West and many more heavy hitters. Ocean has been a discussion point for many fans and critics for using the word "him" instead of "her" on his upcoming album. Well today he cut through all hoopla wrote a personal blog entry to clearing things up.

In an excerpt from the blog post Frank writes:

Four summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old; he was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. It was no escaping, no negotiating with the feelings. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life.

Read the full open letter here. I personally applaud Frank Ocean for speaking about his sexuality. The truth of the matter is that his sexuality is none of our business. However by speaking out and almost being the first person in the hip hop circle to come out, it takes a considerable amount of courage. Go Frank!! First Anderson Cooper and now Frank Ocean, who else is next?

  2. Girl, Franks' blog post is cryptic at best. Good question. Sounds like he's saying he's bi.
