Frank Ocean recently revealed that he is bisexual in a letter posted on his Tumblr blog. The Odd Future crooner originally meant for the letter to be included in the credits of his July 17 debut studio album, “Channel Orange,” but according to the singer, he decided to release it early to “clarify” “all the rumors going round.”
The letter, written in December 2011, starts with some philosophical pondering, Ocean writes “Whoever you are, wherever you are.. I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike…Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to.”
He then discusses his relationship with another man, stating “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…I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager..the ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend for the first time. I realized they were written in a language I did not speak.”
Fellow Odd Future member, Tyler, The Creator, commented on the letter via Twitter, posting “Fucking Finally Sus Boy @frank_ocean Hahahaha, You Still Aint Got No Bitches Hahaha My Nigga Dawg…My Big Brother Finally Fucking Did That. Proud Of That Nigga Cause I Know That Shit Is Difficult Or Whatever. Anyway. Im A Toilet.”
