“It’s a bad religion
To be in love with someone
Who could never love you” – frank
story of my life though?
he could as well call this album “fox tales”.
i relate with about 95% of this album.
i woke up to listen to channelORANGE.
as you know, i was always a fan.
i will admit the announcement helped push me into possible stan-manship.
but i had to wonder if frank ocean’s newly found success comes from being something we aren’t use to….
before i get into that…
let’s get into this….
what is this i keep hearing he did this for a publicity stunt?
why would anyone,
in this homophobic state of the world,
think coming out the closet will help sell a record?
frank was like a baby bird whose mother pushed him out the nest to learn how to fly.
he took a leap of faith without a net to catch him if he tumbled into oblivion.
even though he came out, this is still a business.
from a pr standpoint, it was good to release it early.
1] early leaks that will cause people to get it for free
2] he was still in the gap of “we still care”.
if he waited under the 17th to release,
people would have moved on.
when a scandal happens,
you need to move with it as it goes.
that is your opportunity to go all or nothing.
that, imo, was a smart pr move.
but to the original point…
would frank be as successful if he was a feminine man?
would we care and still show support?
he definitely embodies “regular ass guy” very well.
we are so use to people “coming out” and being the stereotype.
television and movies don’t always show this side of the lifestyle.
it is always the same ol story with a slightly different ending.
don’t lie that you weren’t waiting for someone like Miguel to fly out and set up shop under the rainbow.
but here is a bonus question i just thought of…
would the outcome be different if:
or even drake
…. were to admit they messed with a fox/wolf?
and from first hand eye witness knowledge i refuse to divulge,
87% of the industry is full of gay men and women.
bi when necessary.
a lot support frank,
but won’t cosign.
