Frank Ocean opens up on sexuality

R&B singer and hip-hop artist Frank Ocean is the latest celebrity to open up about his sexuality, revealing to fans in a post on his Tumblr that his first love was a man.

The 24-year-old singer, who is also a member of the rap collective Odd Future, indicated that he'd originally intended to tell fans in the liner notes of his upcoming album, “Channel Orange,” but as rumors began to swirl he put a post on his Tumblr page instead.

“4 summers ago, I met somebody,” the singer wrote, referencing chatter that some of the love songs on his new album are about a man. “I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Every day almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile."

Ocean continued, “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 to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with."

Ocean also expressed pain that the man he had feelings for “wouldn’t tell the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years.” He indicated that he kept the friendship going even as he struggled with their relationship.

Now, he said, he’s free.

“I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore … I was never alone, as much as it felt like it," he wrote. "As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don’t think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, I’m grateful for you."

The lead member and co-founder of Odd Future, Tyler, the Creator, went on Twitter early Wednesday to express his support for Ocean.

    As I've said about Anderson Cooper and all of the other "artists" who have recently come out: WHO CARES? If I was trolling for him, I'd be woozy with joy at the announcement, but on the whole, it makes NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. As long as everyone makes such a freakin' big deal about it, it will continue to be a divisive issue. This is almost the same as the crapola foisted upon us by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, except they didn't have to worry about telling anyone they're black. They just play the Race Card every time something happens that they don't like, much like a spoiled kid who loses at kickball taking his ball and going home. Too bad they won't just go home and leave us alone.

    Jesus accepted people of ALL types,true, but he did NOT accept their sinning ways! Duh! Why do you think he said "..go and SIN NO MORE!" He wouldn't be open and affirming to depravity like the sodomite bullies are. You have the choice to pick the path to heaven or hell but you can't have it both ways-live a godless decadent life then think the pearly gates are gonna swing wide open for ya.

    • Rick

      Technically, you can have it both ways if you lead a life of sin then, on your death bed and in true humility and love, you repent and ask for God's eternal forgiveness.

      On another note, I don't think Jesus spoke English so directly quoting him loses its impact.

      The fact that you use the word "sodomites" means you are probably religious and in my book automatically biased against gay people. How's that for generalizing. If you don't like it don't do it. There's nothing "compassionate" about you.

She's a graduate from a university here in so Cal, a senior who speaks fluent Spanish and French and German, always helped to do the cleaning even when it was her not her turn. What would a good price for her be?" ...Exodus 21:7 "When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go free as male slaves do."

    "Some of the people who I work with, work on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police?"...Exodus 35:2 .."On six days work may be done, but the seventh day shall be sacred to you as the sabbath of complete rest to the LORD. Anyone who does work on that day shall be put to death."....You can pick and choose what you want to use to support your narrow-minded beliefs.

      WHY should he keep it to himself? Part of the problem in the Black community is that it wants to keep it quiet and that has led to a lot of hurt in many, many families and DON"T tell me that YOU don't have anyone in your family who is not gay or are you just naive?
      Keeping it quiet is also a leading factor in why we hear about abuse cases so much later in life. Keeping this kind of thing a "secret" causes additional harm.

Your "Book of Love" also says this 🙁 Leviticus sure did have a lot to say) " However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way." (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

      Heat101 –

      Leviticus 19:27 reads "You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard."
      Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you."
      Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."
      Leviticus 11:10 reads, "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you."

      So unless you have gone your life without shaving your face, eating pork, playing football, wearing synthetic fiber clothes, or eating genetic hybrid foods and shellfish, keep your Leviticus quotes to yourself.

She's a graduate from a univerisity here in so Cal, a senior who speaks Spanish and French and German, always help to do the cleaning even when it was her not her turn. What would a good price for her be?" ...Exodus 21:7 "When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go free as male slaves do."

      "Some of the people who I work with, work on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police?"...Exodus 35:2 .."On six days work may be done, but the seventh day shall be sacred to you as the sabbath of complete rest to the LORD. Anyone who does work on that day shall be put to death."....You can pick and choose what you want to use to support your narrow-minded beliefs.

      Someone elses sin is not yours. Don't judge lest ye be judged etc. Don't quote the bible only to do harm. He may love and lay down with whomever he wants to. Otherwise he would be lying to himself which is far worse then lying to others.

The world will be a far better place when they are all raptured leaving the rest of us to finally have peace from their stupid, misdirected hate.

    People, chill with the hate, from both sides! Geezz, I get it, gays aren't natural, and gays don't like to be persecuted by straights, but think about it, if all your argument entails is asking "how does a hairy man turn you on", you're going about it in the completely opposite direction and basically killing your argument before it's begun. You'll sit there and argue the moral high ground by using immoral standards and ways of life? Honestly, you can use the Bible or not, but regardless of how we feel about it, if you believe in most any monotheistic God, then being gay will land you in Hell, but also straight hate will as well. Seriously, I am a perfectly normal, straight young man who can't honestly see myself with another man at all, and only with one woman upon marriage, which is how it's really supposed to be, for all you Bible-thumpers and moral knights. Quite simply, educate thyself. Lift your knowledge from that baseness which you name Hate, and that will truly set you free. All I've seen here and always in the past is either wholesale acceptance of gays or complete denial of them, but some things need to be addressed, you ostrich-like people who want to bury your heads in the sand and not deal with having an opinion on the subject. The population/procreation issue, for one, is shot full of holes by either side. Gays make up a relatively small percentage, yet theirs does not fulfill what they themselves would argue is a natural role in nature itself. Reproductively-speaking, a male and a female are needed to procreate. While we have no need of population, it's just not natural. But let's do away with the hate, from both sides, please. Today is Independence Day, the day where Freedom is celebrated. Let's celebrate together!

      I was walking past a mental hospital the other day, and all the patients were out in the yard shouting, "13....13....13...."
      The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a little gap in the planks, so I looked through to see what was going on and some idiot poked me in the eye with a stick! Then they all started shouting "14....14....14..."

    I have always thought that the Leviticus passage from the Bible which is so often quoted as "proof" that being gay is against God's will doesn't particularly pertain to that argument. A gay man would NOT lie with a man in the same way he would with a woman; he most likely wouldn't "lie" with a woman in the first place!! Being gay is simply the way some of us were designed from the beginning of our lives, just as other people are born straight.

    You go Frank Ocean, you go! If you honestly believe this world was made by this so called "God" then you my friend are an abomination.

Muslim's tell woman to hide their faces, except there eyes or prepare to be stoned, Christianity tells people you are born of SIN. How is me being born sinning? Or laying with a woman for any other reason than reproduction is also SIN! So if you want to use gays as a scapegoat for your own pleasure, by all means do. However, dont sit there and try and throw verses. For just as you can, so can i.

Yet, I don't see religious fundamentalists picketing outside Red Lobster that everyone who goes in there is sinning. Why is that?

      And, I never once see religious fundamentalists doing anything about the number of pedophile priests that are out there molesting children. Are you going to tell me that molesting children is not a sin? Must not be, since no religious types ever talk about it.

      Because of people like you, it needs to be told. Proud of this black young man, it takes a lot to do it. We are here and always will be. We make this sick world better. If you had friends like him you would know they are great friends and very loving people which makes a better world. We need that in this sick world.

      While that was sweet what you had to say Rick, it's not 100% true. The gays are definitely NOT all sweet and lovely dovey nice people. Some of em are pretty horrible and some are jerks and scandalous d ickheads! Just like anyone else. being gay or straight is just a MINOR detail in their life. Doesn't determine if that makes them a good person or not, lol!

      You saw the article, read it and then took the time to post a comment. I guess if you really didn't want to read this stuff you wouldn't have took the time to read it and comment.

      Hate to tell ya but more, many more will be coming out! We've been here all along, just many have been oppressed and kept from coming out of the closet because of ugly, bigoted people like you.

      People should come out. The truth set you free. Why would you want your son or daughter to hide who they are? That makes liars out of people. I'm tired of deceitfulness. Let's encourage people to tell the truth.

    The powers that be that transend national governments, be they called Illuminati or whatever .. fear overpopulation. Encouraging h0mo$exuality is one of the ways they are dealing with this. CNN is doing a great job promoting that agenda. They should change their name to GNN for obvious reasons.

      You're calling Anderson being encouraged and consequently encouraging others to come out as gay a can of worms/pandoras box? Good I hope so. In fact I not only hope that every LGBT comes out of the closet, I hope every Atheist is inspired by the LGBT community and goes out and does the same!

      If people realized just how many of their family, friends, heroes, and peers were indeed gay/atheist and that these were some of the kindest, smartest, and most morally grounded individuals among them, I believe we could change hearts and minds to our/the right side.

      ... you know when CNN first broke the AC gay story they were like 'ok lets get some more stories
      about celebrities coming out. OK anyone? (no hands go up).. then after minutes of silence a hand
      slow climbs up.. "He isn't huge but he's coming out.. his name be Odd Future, I know you never
      heard of him but millions of fangs have and he's new." ... CNN chief editor sits thinking about this..then finally
      yields with an "OK we'll do this .. just this once for Anderson!.' 😉
