Re: Frank Ocean comes out: He's gay!!!!

According to his letter, I thought is was more bisexual. Then again, after reading it, I think he's gay.

I don't mind straight people as long as they act gay in public!

Re: Frank Ocean comes out: He's gay!!!!

When they announced last week that a young singer is going to come out soon, I thought it was going to be either Bruno Mars or Drake.
But good on Frank

Do no harm, but take no shit.

I'm more appalled by his poor spelling and lack of grammar than his bisexuality.

I'm going to assume that he was kinda "shooting from the hip" with the letter. I would imagine that he'd type/write in edited English format if the letter were for an English class.

Wow. I have to say I didn't see this one coming. He's the only guy in the R&B/hip-hop scene that I can think of that's out. Respect for him.

Re: Frank Ocean comes out: He's gay!!!!

This was very moving to me:
Quote:
I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn't admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn't tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I'd only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn't on a cliff, I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on.

Poor spelling? No (at least not at the level that someone should be "appalled"). Lack of grammar? Do you know what grammar is?

Nate, I would cut him some slack on the grammar and spelling. Like Pureracket said, it likely would have been edited appropriately if it were being submitted in an English class.

Re: Frank Ocean comes out: He's gay!!!!

Good for him, even though it may be risky for his career. I listened to one of his interviews after hearing this news and he seems to be a very cool guy.
