  • Now that some of the enthusiasm behind Frank Ocean’s coming out moment has died down, he’s conducted an interview with "the Guardian" about his decision.

    He first came out about his sexuality on his Tumblr blog July 3, detailing a relationship he had with another man. Shortly after that, the Net was abuzz and he received all types of responses.

    He said, however, he didn’t do it to boost album sales, but to relieve his own stress.

    Coming out was “about my own sanity and my ability to feel like I’m living a life where … I’m happy when I wake up in the morning, and not with this freakin’ boulder on my chest," Ocean said

    “I wished at 13 there was somebody I looked up to who would have said something like that, who would have been transparent in that way.”

    As taboo as the topic is, he did receive tons of support from his peers, including Beyoncé, Russell Simmons and 50 Cent.

    “People are just afraid of things too much. … Sure, evil exists, extremism exists. Somebody could commit a hate crime and hurt me. But they could do the same just because I’m black,” he said. “They could do the same just because I’m American.”

    1. I’m not understanding why anyone’s sexuality should have to be made public. He says he came out to relieve stress, but if he has been living with and happy about his sexuality then why does he have to make it public? It is between him his partner and God and no one else. Now I could be wrong but sometimes when someone is stressed about a secret its usual because they haven’t come to terms about it themselves and we know how God feels about it as well so I’m just sayin with everyone coming out these days it’s really no big deal any more unless he is worried about how his family would feel about it. Good luck Mr Ocean,
