A couple of days ago, rumors started bouncing around that there are some lyrics on Frank Ocean‘s upcoming Channel Orange that reveal he’s bisexual. There weren’t any specific lyrics cited, and Frank didn’t make any comments on it, so it seemed like it was just internet rumors.But tonight, Frank Ocean put up a picture on his Tumblr and the picture is a screenshot of a text document written on a computer. The document is titled “thank you’s.” It was written in December of 2011 while Frank was on a plane from New Orleans to Los Angeles.The note reads like an open letter to the world, and in it, Frank tells the story of meeting a guy four summers ago and falling in love. He goes on to explain that it never turned into what he wanted, but that it was his first true love and that he is thankful for it. It’s a thoughtful and honest admission and although Frank seems a little unsure about the future, this seems like something he was happy to finally be able to share:
“I don’t know what happens now, and that’s alrite. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore.”
Now some people may look at this as a killer for Frank Ocean and may not even listen to his music anymore. But whoever does that are idiots because whatever his preference is that’s his decision, so for you to stop listening to his music is an immature decision. Frank Ocean makes some of the best music I have heard in a long time and to stop listening to his music because he is gay is for one discrimination and two dumb. I think Frank will be ok and people will continue to support him, it’s just a shocker for people and it will take them some time to get over. So blessings to Frank and can’t wait for his “Channel Orange” album which drops on July 17th so be on the lookout for that.
