Miguel vs. Frank Ocean continues…
Miguel Talks About Frank Ocean’s Homosexuality
You’ll recall, Miguel lost to Frank for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the Grammy Awards this year and while everyone stood to clap for Frank, Miguel remained seated. Well, Miguel sheds light on the reasoning behind his R&B diva shade against Frank Ocean.
Miguel was asked about Frank Ocean going public with his sexuality and whether or not Frank doing that “eclipsed” his career.
Via Vibe Magazine:
“I don’t know if the word is eclipsed. [Long pause] That’s a really tough question to answer, man. In all reality, Frank Ocean took a big chance the way that artists are supposed to. I mean, even his album doesn’t sound like mine or anyone else’s. So sonically and how he writes and what he’s writing about and how he chooses to express himself vocally, all his choices are very unique, and I appreciate that about him. Not only did his announcement overshadow my music, but it overshadowed his as well. The general public was in awe and championing him for being brave enough to make that announcement publicly. I congratulate him for his successes. I would love to hear more of his music. He’s one of those artists that’s being himself and pushing boundaries. I gotta celebrate that.”
These two should just kiss and make
out up. Are you #TeamMiguel or #TeamOcean?
