Frank Oceans Confirms To Being Bisexual

It all started as a rumour after a UK radio host, ThisIsMax (Max Akhtar) questioned Frank’s choice of pronouns on songs from his forthcoming debut album. Max attended a Channel Orange listening session and wrote: “On the songs ‘Bad Religion,’ ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and there are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her.’” Like many rumours we thought they were just allegations and would go away but at 1am, appropriately on the 4th of July, Frank Ocean posted two notes on his tumblr.

Heres two quotes i copped from Complex. The couldn't have put it any better.
 Neither hip-hop nor R&B has ever boasted an openly gay star. Not to mention that this is the first time a Black male artist of his stature has sung on record to the same sex. If what’s been reported holds true upon album release, Ocean will be the author of gay love songs.
Though it definitely builds buzz around his debut album, Ocean’s revelation can’t be dismissed as a promotional move. Rather, it means that being cozy in his own skin is more important to Frank than record sales are.
