According to a critic of Frank Ocean’s LP “Channel Orange” album , the Odd Future singer sometimes rapper refers to a male instead of a female in love song lyrics.
BBC 1 radio personality Max reports, “Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music,” Max writes. “On the songs ‘Bad Religion’ ‘Pink Matter and ‘Forrest Gump,’ you can hear him sing about being in love and their are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her.’
Frank hasn’t addressed the Gay rumors via press at the time, but he did tweet “ORANGE REMINDS ME OF THE SUMMER I FIRST FELL IN LOVE. AWWW…”
With the current time and place, Ocean’s sexuality isn’t really an issue right?
In the mean time, Frank Ocean who is currently in the UK promoting his new LP, made an announcement yesterday (July 2). He would be embarking on his own solo tour next month. Within hours, all the tour dates were sold out.-Singersroom.com (source)
Update: Frank Ocean opens up about his sexuality via tumblr (http://frankocean.tumblr.com/) with a letter penned Dec. 2011 stating that he was indeed in love with a male four summers ago.
“4 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.” – Frank Ocean
