    If none have you have checked out his album, well, you need to! Especially his song ‘Thinkin’ bout you’, this is the song about his gay love affair.

      none of you* sorry, already on my second Stella.

    Love this guy, congrats on the win and he’s hot as **** also.

  3. Of course, the big question is whether Nick Grimshaw asked him out on a date at the after party.

    1. No chance there. The guy goes for special

      Grim-shaw seems obsessed with Harry Styles, they’re probably better suited in the intellect department.

  4. I thought he came out as Gay …..what’s with the bisexual thing (not that there is anything wrong with bisexuality) or is that jut more acceptable to he oomph obeys in the hip hop community

    1. No, he never labelled himself. He talked about having fallen in love with a guy on his blog just when Channel Orange was released, and he is also documentedly attracted to women – so the world decided to call him bi as opposed to gay.
      I did notice that some news outlets used the ‘came out as gay’ phrase, which isn’t accurate. I took that to be lazy shorthand by someone who couldn’t be asked to read the source material properly.

      I like that Frank Ocean isn’t bothered about a specific label.

  5. What a fantastic and brave role model. If he feels he can be more accepted by saying he’s ‘bi’ instead of ‘gay’ … so be it. It gets the ultra-homophobic US Black Rap set used to the concept that “some men (black as well as white) have sex with men – get over it.

    This was a good win.. well done Frank!!

    Was good to see.

  7. Gawd, I feel so old! LOL, I don’t know his music. Is he related to Billy Ocean by any chance?
