The singer opens up to the magazine about one of the most personal aspects of his life
Listen to Frank Ocean on iHeartRadio
Frank Ocean says people are wrong if they think he came out of the closet to promote his album. He tells GQ, "Some people said, 'He’s saying he fell in love with a guy for hype.' As if that’s the best hype you can get in hip-hop or black music. In black music, we’ve got so many leaps and bounds to make with acceptance and tolerance in regard to that issue. It reflects something just ingrained, you know."
When asked whether he considers himself "bi-sexual," Ocean responds, "You can move to the next question. I’ll respectfully say that life is dynamic and comes along with dynamic experiences, and the same sentiment that I have towards genres of music, I have towards a lot of labels and boxes... I’m in this business to be creative."
Ocean says the media and his fans should be content with what he's shared with them so far and not try to label him one way or the other. "As a writer, as a creator, I’m giving you my experiences. But just take what I give you. You ain’t got to pry beyond that. I’m giving you what I feel like you can feel... You can’t feel a box. You can’t feel a label. Don’t get caught up in that [fear]. There’s so much something in life."
