*UPDATE* Blind Item Revealed: Rising R&B Star Frank Ocean Pens Letter Admitting That His First Love Was A Man!

- By Bossip Staff

A month ago we posted a blind item about a R&B star coming out the closet on their latest album.

After keeping folks guessing in 2011, this soul singer will answer any questions about which team he’s swinging for with his upcoming musical release. Well, newcomer Frank Ocean might be putting the speculation to rest.

Today saw the Ocean’s LP “Channel Orange” received its London press playback, and oh did it serve up more than expected. See what we mean via Max/BBC 1 Xtra‘s preview below…

“Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music. On the songs ‘Bad Religion’ ‘Pink Matter and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and their are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her’.

In the world we live in now we can’t see this being an issue or why it should be?? But we do commend him for not continuing a facade and conforming to what a Hip Hop so called rule book expects, we say live your life and be yourself.”

First Anderson Cooper now Frank Ocean? Will you be supporting Frank Ocean or do you think his sexuality will negatively impact his career?

*UPDATE* Frank Ocean took to his Tumblr account last night to open up about his sexuality. Hit the flip to peep what he has to say….
