Yesterday, Twitter was in an uproar when it was reported that Frank Ocean had come out as bisexual. I guess he couldn’t let Anderson Cooper have his spotlight in a shower of loose, golden glitter.
The report comes from a blog post on This Is Max, where the writer explains their exclusive listen to Frank Ocean’s new album, Channel Orange. In the post, they explain that Frank had some songs that stated his sexuality as bisexual. But when reading, it came to my mind that these are allegations aren’t concrete.
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. On the songs ‘Bad Religion’ ‘Pink Matter and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and there are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her’.
In the world we live in now we can’t see this being an issue or why it should be?? But we do commend him for not continuing a facade and conforming to what a Hip Hop so called rule book expects, we say live your life and be yourself. If you love women and men, that’s your business.
I won’t be satisfied until I hear these actual songs or until Frank comes out on his own terms, confirming these rumors. What do you guys think?
