Frank Ocean has finally found his own personal
freedom this Independence Day. The Odd Future rapper and Kanye West’s protege
came out in a message on his Tumblr early Wednesday morning, confessing that his “first love” was with a man. “4 summers ago, I met somebody,” he wrote. “I
was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. “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.” Ocean, 24, goes on to detail the relationship, and how he struggled to come to terms with his sexuality.
My opinion: Even though he has come out and expressed his sexuality as Gay or bisexual I still support this artists 120%. Forget the people who said there trying to get his music to die.
