[NEWS] FRANK OCEAN ADMITS TO HOMOSEXUALITY ON NEW ALBUM, 'CHANNEL ORANGE' SINGS TO BOTH MALE & FEMALE LOVERS
 
05 July 2012 11:09 PM
Frank Ocean admits to being bi-sexual.

After review of his new album, 'Channel Orange' the answer surrounding his sexual orientation arose. On the songs 'Bad Religion' 'Pink Matter' and 'Forrest Gump' you can hear him clearly singing about being in love with a male using quite obvious words like 'him' and not 'her'.

Frank Ocean has decided to address the matter in an open letter posted on his official Tumblr account this morning. Check it out below:

Whoever you are, wherever you are Im starting to think we are a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3, Ive screamed at my creator. Screamed at clouds in the sky.

For some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 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 Id see him, and his smile. Id 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.

There was no escaping.

No negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life. Back then, my mind would wander to the women I had been with. The ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager.

The ones I played when I experienced a girl too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasnt in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima. The same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, know I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldnt admit the same.

He had to go back inside soon. I was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldnt tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like Id only imagined reciprocity for years.

Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No. I wasnt on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldnt imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasnt always successful.

The dance went on.. I kept the rhythm for several Summers after.

Its Winter now. Im typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a windowseat. Its December 27, 2011. By now, Ive written two albums. This being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane.

I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. Im surprised at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this, Id told some people my story. Im sure these people kept me alive. Kept me safe sincerely. These are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are.. Great humans.

Probably angels. I dont know what happens now, and thats alright. I dont have any secrets I need kept anymore. Theres probably some small sh*t still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as I felt like it..As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I dont think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, Im grateful for you. Grateful that even though it wasnt what I had hoped for and even though it was never enough, it was. Some things never areAnd we were. I wont forget you. I wont forget the Summer.Ill remember who I was when I met you.

Ill remember who you were and how we both changed and stayed the same. Ive never had more respect for life and living than I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive.

Thanks. To my mother, you raised me strong. I know Im only brave because you were firstSo thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.
