Singer Frank Ocean Reveals That His First Love Was A Man

Frank Ocean

Wow, Singer Frank Ocean revealed that he was bisexual on a recent Tumblr blog. To many of us this was a surprise but for Frank Ocean it was an act of liberation. The "Thinking Bout U" singer made this bold admission just in time for Independence day. Speculation about Ocean's sexual orientation began a little over one year ago, as he began preparation for a new album entitled "Channel Orange". Many critics noticed that Ocean used the pronoun him in on quite a few occasions where they felt her would have been more appropriate with lyrics coming from a man.   

In an open letter Frank Ocean penned on his Tumblr blog, he admitted that his first love was indeed a man. According to Ocean, he and his first love was involved when they were both only nineteen years of age. Apparently, this was a very trying time for Ocean as he was just coming to grisps with the reality of being a man indeed in love with another man.  

According to Global Grind Frank Ocean penned,

"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 I’d see him, and his smile. I’d 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."

Frank Ocean has gained the respect of many with this bold confession.  One could only hope that this confession does not affect the outcome of his musical career. Frank is indeed a musical genius. His career highlights includes being an excellent songwriter for singers like, Beyonce, Justin Beiber, Brandy, Kanye West and Jayz; he is also a great singer. Some of my favorite Frank Ocean songs are, Thinkin About U, and Novacane. I wish Frank the best, and will continue to look forward to his great music. What do think of Frank Ocean coming out of the closet? Do you think this will affect his career?

Here is one of my favorite songs, check out Thinkin Bout U by Frank Ocean below.
