There's been some chatter on message boards and in comment sections that maybe Frank Ocean, the mega-popular, talented and, yes, powerful, musician had gone back into the closet after becoming the most successful gay musician around, in hip-hop, rap, pop and otherwise. (Of this fresh generation of out and proud singers, Adam Lambert's the top seller. Lambert's Trespassing sold 198,000 copies in its first week; Ocean's Channel Orange sold a few less, 131,000.)
Anyway, clearly Ocean's not hiding or ashamed, because the 25-year old took to Tumblr to tout his inclusion in Out's 2013 Power List.
"Respect"? We've got nothing but!
For those of you who haven't heard Ocean sing his heart out about other men, here are three songs in which he does just that, "Bad Religion," "Pink Matter," and "Forrest Gump." All of the videos are live performances.
