Amidst buzzing news about Anderson Cooper coming out of the closet publicly, it's reported that Frank Ocean has also opened up about his sexual orientation. The Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All rapper is believed to have addressed his sexuality in his upcoming debut album "Channel Orange".

While the CD won't be released until July 17, it has been previewed to some selected journalists including Max, who has worked with MTV and BBC. "On the songs 'Bad Religion', 'Pink Matter' and 'Forrest Gump' you can hear him sing about being in love and there are quite obvious words used like 'him' and not 'her'," he states.

"Pink Matter" features OutKast's Andre Benjamin a.k.a Andre 3000. The other featured guests in the forthcoming effort include Earl Sweatshirt and John Mayer.

Frank hasn't said anything about the report. On his Tumbrl page, the rhymer wrote, "Orange reminds me of the summer I first fell in love. Awww..."

Frank Ocean is a singer and he has rapped on a few Odd Future tracks. But Frank isn't necessarily gay. He's Bi-sexual. Who ever wrote this article is a rank amateur because Frank wrote a letter himself saying that he's bi. The letter goes in details about his first love experience with a man. But, he goes both ways.

It doesn't really matter what his sexuality, fact remains he makes awesome music. Tracks like ,"static","back","novacane" and "if I'm in love" are brilliant. So irespective of the the "latest" on Frank nobody can take this MAN's talent away

its so dumb how you can just make things up about people. If anyone knew about franks history or knew what nostalgia was about. They would know that he wasn't gay.
