Frank Ocean comes out

2012-07-04 by Jade Royal EMERITUS | 83 Comments
In a letter that R & B musician Frank Ocean wrote in the airport, he talks about sexuality, and specifically about his first love, who was a man. This announcement precedes the release of Channel Orange, Ocean's second solo full-length; Ocean decided to release the letter now, since the album's lyrics apparently suggest bisexuality.

Read the letter here:

No Odd Future is genuinely homophobic, they're terrible people. They're Murders, Arsonists and have a general disregard for education.

"It would be more surprising to see a list of entertainers that aren't gay. The whole music/movie industry is run by homos. Thats why Leonardo Dicaprio hasn't won an Oscar yet...Cause he's never gotten bufu'ed by a dude in a movie."

STOP SAYING OFWGKTA ARE HOMOPHOBIC!!!!!!!!!

Tyler himself has cleared the air by saying:
"I'm not homophobic. I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit," and, "I'm not homophobic. I just think faggot hits and hurts people." However, he later said in an interview with MTV about the slurs, "Well, I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive, so I don't know. If it offends you, it offends you. If you call me a nigga, I really don't care, but that's just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don't give a shit."

The guy has some guts coming out, especially since the R&B and Hip Hop community he is accounted with isn't all too known for tolerance or support of this kind of thing. All I care about is that his music stays awesome, more power to him.
