Frank Ocean Comes Out as Bisexual, Receives Props or Whatever from Tyler the Creator

by at . Comments

Perhaps spurred on by Anderson Cooper, Frank Ocean has become the first hip hop star to openly address his bisexuality.

In a Tumblr post this morning, the rapper - who is part of the group Odd Future and who worked with Kanye West and Jay-Z on "Watch the Throne" - wrote:

Four 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.

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.

I don't have any secrets I need kept anymore ... I feel like a free man.

In response to the brave admission, Tyler the Creator has Tweeted:

"My Big Brother Finally F***ing Did That. Proud Of That N***a Cause I Know That Shit Is Difficult Or Whatever."

We might have used different language, but we echo Tyler's sentiment.

@Deemonii stfu u make no sense yourself. Reality tv is 4 those whose talents r 2 expose themselves so whatever they do most will know thats one thing. If your talent or job is to b an actor or R and b artist then be that or do reality tv instead. I c most peoples points ur buisness is ur buisness fuck who u want a dog a sheep or meatloaf but keep it 2 yourself,if you feel that heavy n heart theirs psychiatrist for your issues. You make foolish assumptions about people not everyone is like u who feels the need to tell the world who u choose to sleep with, reality tv or not its just as looked down upon as those shows where heterosexuals expose there whore-ish was trust me they get no respect and no one truly cares they c them 4 what they r fame whores that will fade. Contradict nothin keep who u fuck to yourself. Your excuse 4 gays tellin us who they fuck makes u sound ignortant now take several stadium seats and shut the fuck up!

@Jawny - your homophobia's showing-better run back into your closet. Your guess about me is hilarious. It seems you only rudimentally express yourself by misspelling unoriginal insults. As to whether you have the education to comprehend my response, well, it's doubtful given your ignorance.

Most of you people are fucking ignorant.Its not okay for him to come out with something that could've been heavy on his heart?You all are a bunch of judgement fucks because half you motherfuckers sit and watch basketball wives,love and hip hop all of that bullshit which is TELLING,AND EXPOSING who celebs with "talent"fucks,sucks,and the whole nine so its not alright for him to speak?Stop fucking contradicting yourselves because if you don't want to her about peoples private business and what they do behind close doors then you wouldn't be watching those reality television shows,hypocrites.

This whole "coming out thing" is reflective of the way Hollywood and the general entertainment industry is really a bunch of lemmings who follow each other over the cliff! Not just with regard to one's sexuality...but think back recently how all these women celebs had to take their naked preggie photos to share with society, then a group of them had to weigh in and support breast-feeding their sons till puberty. OH, and don't forget the big "family-building" trend of adopting children from African nations and then sitting back to collect accolades for being so very humanitarian. Yeah, only underscores the hypocrisy of their decisions!

@Jp, I tend to agree w/ you in that it's ridculous we live in a society where ppl seem to need to tell everyone their sexuality. I hope someday it's acceptable to love & sleep w/either gender. @Jawny somehow I don't know that they'd be proud of you. Loll
