Odd Future's Frank Ocean reveals his first love was a man
Wednesday 04 July 2012
Frank Ocean says he feels like a free man: The acclaimed singer has revealed on his website that his first love was a man.
He wrote today on his Tumblr page that he fell in love at 19 with a friend whom he spent two summers with. When he confessed his feelings, the friend didn't reciprocate, though he did years later.
Ocean's self-released nostalgia, ULTRA. was named as one of the best albums of 2011 by some critics.
He also was prominently featured on Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne album last year. He is part of the hip-hop collective Odd Future led by Tyler, the Creator, who is known for using anti-gay epithets in his lyrics.
Tyler is expressing support for Ocean on Twitter — in typical crude fashion.
