Early this morning (July 4), Frank Ocean took to his Tumblr to post a personal statement in which he opens up about his sexuality. In the piece, which he intended to "fill the thank you's section" in the credits of his upcoming album, "Channel Orange," Ocean shares details of falling in love with a man.
"4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Every day almost, and on the day we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I'd see him, and his smile. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless," Ocean writes.
Ocean continues to share more of the relationship, closing with, "I feel like a free man. If I listen closely... I can hear the sky falling too."
