R&B singer and Odd Future member Frank Ocean came out of the closet yesterday, writing a poetic blog in which he admitted that his first love was 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’s admission is relatively unheard of in mainstream Hip Hop, and will certainly make waves across the music world.
