  1. Wow. So can we not get the REST of the interview? Where he talks about being made to date women by the record industry? Or homophobia in black society?? Plus his obsession with no labels that is YOU bothered to listen to his music or ANY of his past interviews,you would know this.

    Okay Pink News. Agenda much!

    1. sorry I -1 you by mistake PN is a bit racist only black LGBT stories are negative

  2. Tbh if he does not want to talk about it then thats his choice and people need to respect that.

    1. Exactly BUT he does talk about it. I don’t know why Pink News are being so bitchy BUT to be fair, even when they first wrote about him,they were a$$holes. So,go figure. And PLEASE read the interview. I don’t think I have seen an American gay/bi artist be that honest about the industry or their struggle.

      Pity Pink News has ignored this for bitchyness.

  3. PN didn’t strike me as the source of such trashy, tabloid-esque manipulation. How disappointing.

    1. Pn is a bit racist

  4. It reminds me of all those interviews that our Cliff used to give around the subject of his sexuality. Evasive and trying to change the subject and deflect the question. Really wriggling around the question if you like-as though they are ashamed to be themselves. I can remember when even Elton John talked like that- he even went to the trouble of getting married to a woman to try to evade his sexuality! Its sad to think that nothings changed.

    1. READ HIS INTERVIEW!! THERE IS NOTHING EVASIVE ABOUT SINGING MORE THEN 2 FRIGGING SONGS IN YOUR ALBUM ABOUT LOVING A MAN AND USING ‘HE’ OR ‘HIM’ ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      WHEN DID CLIFF OR ELTON AT THE AGE OF 24 WHEN THEY ARE JUST ABOUT TO MAKE IT BIG ADMIT THAT THEY HAVE SAME SEX FEELINGS?? HUH?

      Sigh.

  5. Most people by sexual orientation are bisexual to a greater or lesser degree, there are very few people 100% straight or 100% gay, on the spectrum from straight through to gay most people find themselves somewhere around the middle and the majority toward the straight end of the spectrum.

    1. Thank you. I’m not sure if you know of Ocean or his music? He is very telling in his music and uses social media alot,so you can find out quite a bit about him. My deduction, especially after in the interview he mentions that they tried to force him to go on dates with women but he didn’t want to,is that he leans more to the gay side. I think he feels gay,which is why he didn’t confirm the bisexual question but I still think he is a little bit attracted to women.

      I think like many bisexuals who discovered there same sex attraction at a late stage-he was 19-you are constantly growing with whom your true preference is and I have noticed that with him. He is growing to be gay.

      He’s one of those artists that isn’t fake,so it’s pretty easy and fascinating to see these developments in his music and social media. Like he posts more jokes about hot guys and pictures with half naked men…stuff like that.

      1. He would probably be just as annoyed by you trying to analyze his orientation to death and stick him under an arbitrary label as he is when the interviewer does it.

    2. I disagree with that. Reseach tells us that bisexuals are less in number than both straights and gays. So stop making up claims, with no base!

  6. Sorry Rowan- I admit I know nothing of Frank-only the basic PN Report-which I have now concluded is very misleading.

    Its their fault-I just accepted it at face value-and its obviously highly misleading.

  7. It’s annoying that people in the public eye who’re gay or bi are inevitably asked impertinent questions about their sexuality, but on the other hand I do think he could have just said “Maybe I am. Next question?”

    It was a publicity stunt for his album, he has never said he was gay, only that he once had sexual relations with a man – doesn’t exactly make you gay.

    Shame he got so much attention for it when there are people like Rob Halford who have been openly gay for years now.
