Frank Ocean came out, opening up about the personal part of his life when he confirmed he has had relationships with men on his Tumblr page yesterday.
The Odd Future singer took a brave step by coming out, despite the stigma and possibility of facing a huge backlash from his fans and R&B and Hip-Hop industry.
With Ocean’s Odd Future wingman Tyler The Creator, showing his support in a tweet: “F**king Finally Sus Boy @frank_ocean Hahahaha, You Still Aint Got No B***hes Hahaha My N***a Dawg.”
“My Big Brother Finally F**king Did That. Proud Of That N***a Cause I Know That S**t Is Difficult Or Whatever. Anyway. Im A Toilet.”
However, some of the fans were not so suppportive, saying: “Frank Ocean admits his gayness in his new album. What is the world coming to?”
While another male fan questioned whether Ocean’s openess may change the tone of his music. “Now that Frank Ocean has come out of the closet, all his songs have a residual difference.“Jul 4, 2012
