Questions about the 24 year old singer’s sexuality surfaced when lyrics on his forthcoming album Channel Orange revealed that he could possibly be bisexual. After receiving an advance copy of the release, a UK blogger noted that Ocean made references to a “he” instead of a “she” on a couple of ballads, prompting the rumor mill to swirl.
The singer released a letter last night via twitter that he reportedly wrote back in December 2011, prefaced by the following statement:
BasedGod was right – we’re all a bunch of golden million dollar babies. my hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what i’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read.
it was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going round.. i figured it’d be good to clarify..
The typewritten letter, which reveals Ocean’s thoughts and feelings about his sexuality and was released early in light of the rumors.
While I feel that it’s clearly a non-muthflockin’ factor if Ocean is gay or straight, he is certainly entitled to speak his peace, especially if he feels “outed.”
