In the past hour or so, Frank Ocean posted this e-mail above to his tumblr page. In these obvious heartfelt words, he stated that he has had loving relationships both with men and women. And he is trying to grow as a person by letting the world know. This was hinted at in many of his songs in his new album Channel Orange. A lot of his songs are love songs, such as “Forrest Gump” and “Bad Religion” yet in them he says “him” instead of “her” (as reported by BB1 Extra).
First of all good for him. Obviously this was very hard for him and something that he really struggled with in his life. And being able to come clean on such a matter, especially when you’re a public figure must be very difficult.
Ocean, ghostwriter for the likes of Beyonce and Kanye West, is also a member of OFWGTKA, led by rapper Tyler, The Creator. His album Channel Orange is due out July 17th. There was already a lot of buzz about it, and this can only add to that
