After the rumor mills ran rampant about Frank Ocean’s sexuality on his forthcoming album Channel Orange, the singer has indeed confirmed that he is a bi-sexual man.
After references of “he” instead of “she” on a few of his ballads on the album, rumors began to swirl that Frank Ocean is bi-sexual.
The “Novacane” singer initially didn’t address the rumors, but now has decided to release a letter he wrote about his thoughts about his sexuality.
Apparently, the letter Frank penned was written in December 2011 as he prepped the album. Preempting the homosexual speculation, he decided to pen an open letter discussing his first love with a man.
At the mere age of 19, Frank reminisces about the first time he’d ever fallen in love and how his first love was with a person of the same sex.
The letter was initially supposed to be in the credits section of his official debut album, but after a UK blogger outed him, he decided to release the letter on his tumblr page, explaining his sexuality.
“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.”
We definitely respect Frank for having the courage to come out of the closet.
We hope his announcement is respected and that people will judge his music and not his personal life.
When you’re feeling hopeless and alone remember, Frank Ocean among many other celebs are on your side and understand your struggle.
Frank Ocean’s debut album Channel Orange is set to drop July 17.
