Frank Ocean Comes Out Of Closet

This was, um, unexpected. Last night, Frank Ocean revealed via his Tumblr page that he’s bi-sexual. Outside of the bedroom, his debut album Channel Orange drops July 17th.

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. It was hopeless…

    dont care. His sexuality shouldnt change my perception of his art. i dont necessarily agree with homosexuality, but at the same time, i dont care as long as it doesnt interfere in my life.

    Lmao nigga said B.Dot should come out now, but naww if anybody is straight on this website it’s B.Dot. Amaya & BIg Homie the ones to come out.

  • blackspider

    it’s a shame we live in a country where people still believe in god and live their life based off a book. when you die, NOTHING happens so don’t follow something a stupid book told you. you might as well believe in santa, grow up. good for frank.

    Stay the fuck in the closet Why u got to announce your sexuality to the world, you don’t see chris brown announcing to the world that he is straight, tired of these gay people trying to make head lines for being a fag, he won’t sell no records in the black community after this shit lol career suicide it was to early Frank waay to early in the game to tell them your gay before racking a few million first. he’s ruined!!

    really don’t care about his sexuality. i applaud him for his courage. & his music is still fire so i really don’t give a DAMN

    so what let that nigga be gay if he wants to doesnt change my opinion of him why would it?

  • The Truth

    Sadly, he’s not the only one in hip hop, Independence day literally for him, he just fucked up his career hip hop wise, he will have the alternative and gay market on lock though, but like Aries Spears said, “I aint juggling no nuts”!!!

  • Real Talk.

    @B.Dot just wondering, what was the bible verse in response to and what point were you trying to get to?

  • dacid

    @The Truth

    Do you this he cares about hiphop ? first off he’s not a hip hop artist. Secondly, He’s on tour with Cold Play starting in August. This kid is on another level now, where it doesn’t matter about you sexual preference. Just your art & your talent. Where as Hip Hop is stagnated in one stupid mind set, when we all know Diddy is gay as a banana in Elton Johns mouth.

  • Numbers

    he is bi so the songs for women are still true he just also has songs like Forest Gump and Bad Religion which are about men

    Coincidence that Tom Cruise is now single….. I think not

  • The Truth

    @dacid

    The bottom line is no matter how you slice it, a man being with another man is wrong and him being featured on two songs on watch the throne and writing for Beyonce I would say Jay Z pulled some strings for that Coldplay tour, unless you are white and do pop music or some other genre, being gay doesn’t help you, being gay is one thing but being gay and black will hurt him especially in hip hop!!!

  • Siy@

    As long as he keeps his lips away frm my dick and his boner stay away frm my asshole, then i aint got a problm with dudes sexuality and will continue to listen to his music … coz hes makes hella gud music.
    “Thinkin Bout You” is my song … Oh god maybe its about a dude : ^^Pukes in my mouth^^

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    SMH@hellishot. You are very ignorant. Good for Frank Ocean.

  • michelle michelle

    The letter he wrote was beautiful. You can tell by his music he has both known and lost love.

  • RC

    Awful news b. Straight awful.

    I liked this kids music. I really did.

    But there’s no way I’m gonna listen to love songs sang by a home about hetero love.

    I have nothing against gays. But I listen to rnb for songs about love and relationships. I don’t wanna hear about gay shit in my music. It’s not my preference.

    I admit it takes courage to come out, but this is the gay revolution age. He is gonna do nothing but win with this announcement.

    Dude was singing bout dudes but writing in females. Fuck!

  • http://www.videografproductions.net carl

    you dumb fucks finally have your gay rapper….Next!

  • Numbers

    Haha fuck ghost. Love is love. Even straight people realize that and nobody or anything above people would want someone to actually live a life without love and if you truly see things how you just said then you are an example of ignorance and pussy yourself. Not people like Frank or anyone else who is honest. The bible use to say people should be killed under certain circumstances and shit so if you believe in the bible now then what’s wrong with the old one? wouldn’t it be more accurate? How could they change the basis of a true religion. I believe in a God just not that one. I believe in a good one. Any God who wants his power acknowledged by knees on the ground and begging him or asking him for things or just merely thinking him for you wouldn’t have life because of him is not a good one and that is actually very simple to see. If there is a God though then he will understand regardless. He’d understand you just as he understands Frank. You were born and or raised the way you. I can only hope your views are one day broadened. Regardless of your believes people deserve love

  • Lila

    I’m confused, is he gay or bisexual? and where are people getting that he said he was bisexual? I read the letter and it sounded to me like he was saying that he was gay. Either way, I think that he was very brave being outwardly honest even though he didn’t owe that to anyone besides himself.

  • Jason

    ‘Numbers’ stop being emotional you clown. being gay is not only against the bible but its against human nature. wake up you fool! USE YOUR COMMON SENSE! If everyone was gay the world would literally END! That alone should show you that is is not natural! just because you want to be gay doesn’t mean you should pursue it! there is consequences for our every action! Its cool though all you people that done wake up have a Missile with your name on it! when ww3 breaks out. all praises to yahawa basham yahawashi.

    You can’t ask somebody to refute what you’re saying and at the same time making the rules, the fact is religion has a lot to do with it, that’s like saying I will play you in a basketball game of one on one only if you spot me five points first, 2 men don’t belong together no matter how you say it, because everyone is accepting of it doesn’t make it right, you are born black but now born gay contrary to what people say!!!

    Religon doesn’t have shit to do with anything. Christians aren’t the almighty religon so chill with that bullshit. It is hilarious how ignorant people still are. I have no problem with gays but I only have problems with the ones that float around wearing women shit and trying to act like a woman that’s where I cross the line.

It’s hilarious to be honest.

  • MegaMind

    @Hetal….what you say is true brother! Young, Black men worry about the wrong things. See while people in here are quoting the bible and acting holier than thou, a SIN IS A SIN in God’s eyes. So if you think FO being gay is above lying, stealing, premartial sex, speaking with a dirty mouth, lust, etc. YOU ARE MISGUIDED. As a Christian, I don’t condone homosexuality…BUT at the same time I don’t judge it! My own life is rife with daily personal spiritual struggle (i drink, fornicate, curse and listen to blasphemous HIP-HOP….New GOD FLOW???? Really YE??…no cool, but no one was marching with signs about that shit and that is WAYYY more ill than FO being Bi…Jay calls himself HOV…Yaweh is GOD…or HOVA…Blasphemy…who other thread).

    But you youngster better wack up and stop laughing at everything because the black community is hurting because AIDS/HIV, uneducated, gang violence, drugs, unwed parenting….and NONE of this shit has to do with “the white man” holding US back. Everyone is righteous when they can point at the next man…”Before you point out the speck in my eye, remove the plank from yours”

    Blacks aren’t growing…financially, intellectually OR in population. Our Latino brothers now out number us in the US by over 20-25 mil. But niggas will still worry about that latest Jordan, who fkn who on Chicago Southside, who’s baby moms got HIV in Brooklyn, what gang member was killed in Watts….y’all better wake the fuck up…bc I’m starting to notice the haves are not even extenteding a hand to the have nots….especially blacks amongst black….their take is “why help these people when I worked hard to get it and they don’t want to help themselves” and if your own don’t care…you think a family in Nebraska give a FK??! Especially when they are underemployed as well???

    Vote on a local level…it has a national impact…get educated…i don’t care if its DeVry…wear protection when having sex…stay focus…shit i’m ranting now…but I love my people…but niggas I HATE! I DESPISE THEM ACTUALLY!!! And these threads are full of them.

    MM out!

  • rw523

    So much ignorance in the comments. You are the reason people have to “come out” because it’s otherwise not acceptable in American society to be homosexual. People can’t just be who they are because they’ll get hounded by the press and bloggers and commenters who will speculate about their sexuality. Frank Ocean was just trying to bypass all that and move on with his life and career. All you dumbfucks with your 9th grade educations and your bible that you probably need read to you are the ones that were holding him – and every other MC or singer – back from just living their lives.

  • WackMoFos

    It’s always the “straightest” guys bringing up the gayest shit. He came out the closet but never once mentioned the sexual act (its obvious, but when you mention/type something you also visualize it). If I was straight, and saw a gay guy was coming out, why click on the post? Find some pussy and fantasize about what you have a hard time getting.

    Also, the bible also states a lot about what the “adam & eve’s” of this world should do, but how many people follow that? Get over yourself! If a gay man makes you realize how much you love the lord. Then instead of drinking, smoking today go to church and pray for the sinners of the world. Maybe you’ll actually get to “heaven”…

    Let’s count how many times I’ll be called a fag after this post. Simple response by simple minded people.

  • Itz Yourz

    Wow…didnt know most of y’all were bible thumping ppl when it comes to sexual orientation. Why not be like that in other parts of your lives? Guess its easy to bash someone else shit.

    @cosign mega mind…your spot was dead on.

    Now if frank ocean wrote the chorus of no church in the wild all by himself you should know its doesn’t matter what any of us thinks…not even God. I’m sure we won’t be there on judgement day for him.

    Now I don’t condone it but I’m not going to be overly aggressive in hating it or him. It was done to me and my ancestors for being black and that’s something I will not pay it forward to someone else who is different.

    The genre of music he is in listeners tend to juxtapose your songs and your personal life. Now you dealing with people feelings and there understanding of I.d-ing with you. Him announcing this puts a rift between it. That’s why Luther Vandross never put his private life out there. When it comes to love songs no one likes to wonder. They want to make sure what I’m talking about, you talking about…lmao. We will just have to see how this plays out.

    @B.Dot

    A ton of people who claim “equality” will attack you regardless. You understand the essence of the matter and you don’t hesitate to proclaim it. That within itself is truly courageous. I’m not claiming to be devout, but we both know the Word and that the reward at the end isn’t meant for everyone, so if people want to fiercely throw it away and stick to their ways, then so be it. It’s only up to us, the believers, to continue going on and doing what we can.

    The only thing that really irks me is that people will continuously compare the Black plight to the Gay one. You can’t “come out” and be Black. It’s something that shows immediately. It’s not something you can be quiet and just “not be identified”. If one is homosexual, I don’t understand why one has to “announce” it to the world. I dont walk down the street proclaiming “i’m all about the pussy, baby!!!” You don’t need to announce which way you swing. So no, Black people and Gay people don’t go through the same plights at all.

    Furthermore, the ignorant views that Christians SUPPORT the priests that are molesting people or that ALL of us drink or smoke or that ALL of us “pick and choose” what we want to follow is preposterous and just wrong. Those people, especially those certain priests, are just wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    There’s a reason why Christianity is the most attacked religion as well as arguably the most powerful one.

  • http://youtu.be/GoL8qgSeILg Niyemortal

    Lastly, just because he’s gay doesn’t make his music change per se. If he happens to go full swing with the music, then I’ll stop listening to him, but there are songs that are still tough (i’m not going to stop listening to ‘Made It in America’ or ‘Songs for Women’ because of this announcement.)

    If everyone wants equality, then they need to practice it on the individual basis first before demanding it from the masses.

  • JustSaying

    @Niyemortal

    It’s not the “coming out”Part that one as myself is contrasting when I say I understand the bigotry and won’t be about the bigotry toward someone else because I know how it feels because Im black. What is plight? A condition, situation, or state unfavorable to one. To not be wanted in certain neighborhoods, schools, political parties (situation), not allowed the same rights , benefits or licenses as others (condition) and to worry you wont get a certain job, postion, or be overlooked when your more than capable of achieving a goal (state) A black person, Jewish person, a female, an ex con wouldn’t be able to empathize with a gay person? It’s the same fight, for different causes but the outcome we all want most is recognition as a human being. Equal. Not subhuman or being property to anybody.

    And being black is something you can’t hide…that’s how you was born. Whose to say that’s not how they weren’t born. I’m not gay, I’m sure you are not gay, so us being heterosexuals how do we know you cant be born that way? The world scientist is still out to lunch with that one. We arent them, we wouldnt know there feelings. And I preferably would want to believe there is a defect in a persons genetic makeup then for them to be completely fine and desire to be with someone of the same gender.

    MLK Jr “dream” speeche he dreamed his four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judge by the color of there skin but by the content of there character. Well the day is here. Blacks are not grossly judge by there color anymore. Our contents of our characters are now being judged/attacked especially from our own kind. Frank ocean and others like him have a tuff fight to fight but me being black will not hinder, fetter or frustrate there fight with my bias to them. Because I understand it.

    It is really funny how people are saying his career is over when he has been on tracks for Kanye and Jay z. Obviously that means his career is going to end. Smh.

  • http://youtu.be/GoL8qgSeILg Niyemortal

    @Itz Yourz

    Very concise statement there. And whether gay people are born that way or not, I don’t judge them on such. I don’t look down on them. In the doctrine I was raised on, it is believed that homosexuality is a sin. We all sin. Almost all sins are equal to the Lord (suicide is unforgivable) so just because I see homosexuality as a sin, I don’t say I’m above sin as I sin everyday. Why I say all this? Because I’m an intelligent and God-fearing Christian male. I don’t judge anyone, and I don’t attack them. All the people who are more than likely gay who commented saying “your make-believe God” or “bible thumping” etc. show immaturity saying Christians do this and Christians do that, yet here I am not attacking anyone for their beliefs or views. My true face can be seen in my name. My social links are there. I am not anonymous. I think therefore I am. All people should be able to express their views without belittling one another and I thank you for being intelligent with your thoughts.

    As for the plight thing, yes MLK wanted rights for all, regardless of race, creed, sexuality, etc. and all should get rights. Its just that the way gay rights have been advocated in the forums is at the belittlement of those who believe in God, then go on to say the plight is the same when it is indeed not. Everyone has their own cross to bare, so I’m not saying one is greater or less than the other, but it is implausible to call them the same. I wouldn’t go and say the Black plight is similar to what Jewish people had to go through or what the Native American people had to go through, because it just wouldn’t make sense.

    Equality has no > or < sign, so people should act accordingly.

    P.S. Racism is still alive, it's very institutionalized, but I'm not here to get my Al Sharpton on.

    I doubt every single song he’s written is about that one dude he was with five years ago. You’ll know when it’s about a guy, because he’ll use the article “he” instead of “she”, like on the new album (the first time he’s written about a guy, apparently).

    In the beginning it was “Adam & Eve” not “Adam & Steve”. Career suicide in a sense. This “out and proud” movement is getting out of hand? You’re gay? Cool. Not everyone has to agree with it because it’s become more socially acceptable. If you don’t agree with it, you don’t have to! If you do agree with it, you have that right as well. What some people don’t understand is that not everyone agrees with homosexuality, period. And when those individuals are blindsided by news that one their favorite artists is gay, it’s an unpleasant discovery. Do the math, don’t be ignorant. Being straight with an opinion against homosexuality has become the new taboo?

    I am honestly disgusted at how ignorant hip hop fans are. I thought we were moving ahead. The President Of Hip Hop (Hov) recently showed his support of gay marriage. The Game said in a Vlad interview that he doesn’t have a problem with the gay community. Jadakiss said in a Vlad interview that he doesn’t have a problem with the gay community. I honestly thought hip hop as a culture was moving ahead. But I’ve been proven wrong by the onslaught of homophobic slurs in the comment section of this blog.
