R&B singer Frank Ocean came out of the closet last week in a post to his website where he talks about falling in love with a man four summers ago. A man who Starpulse reports might be Ocean’s mentor Kanye West even though absolutely nothing in his post would suggest that, so naturally I thought this was the type of speculation that needed to be repeated on the Internet as soon as possible:
It’s the latest rumor in music: after Frank Ocean made a heartfelt revelation that he had a gay relationship when he was 19, everyone had been wondering if the unnamed man mentioned was a celebrity. There’s even a growing belief that it’s Kanye West, who helped mentor the singer.
However, Ocean’s post says he and his lover were both 19 – and his lover was also with a woman at the time. In reality, West is 6 years older than Ocean… but some say he changed the aged to help protect the man’s identity.
Ocean kicked West off the production of his debut album Channel Orange, citing he wanted to do it on his own – but perhaps he didn’t want censorship of his lyrics.
Of course, this would explain why Beyoncé has been doing goddamn jumping jacks over Frank Ocean coming out because now Kanye will finally get his comeuppance for bringing Kim Kardashian near her. “Oh, hey, Jay-Z, is this the mother of your child? Good, because I brought her a piss-monster.” Who does that?
