Months after Odd Future affiliate Frank Ocean raised eyebrows by announcing his bisexuality, the soulful singer has stirred up some talks after making a mysterious proclamation.
Brief with his words, Ocean has left fans wondering after claiming he has quit something.
Known for his unique Text Edit posts and vibrant use of Tumblr, Frank Ocean took tho his Twitter to say one thing and one thing only. Find out what it is after the jump. “YEA, I QUIT.” Just posted moments ago, the short and direct phrase was posted in a text post with much left to the imagination to figure out. Whether he means music, it is quite unclear but we can only hope that he doesn’t mean music. Either way we support his decisions 100%. (Karen Civil)
Some bloggers have questioned whether this is simply a ploy for attention or real proclamation.
So, what is Frank Ocean trying to do this time? Is this some ploy for attention to make a 4th Quarter push? I don’t put a thing past Frank Ocean. He’s a talented young man, but not above a lil’ publicity. Apparently on his Tumblr, he posted “Yea, I Quit” Now, we know that boy ain’t quitting nothing. If he’s quitting anything, maybe it something deviant and weird. But, not music. So, with that said, what do you think Frank Ocean is quitting? (All Hip Hop Rumors)
Earlier this month, Frank resorted to Tumblr to speak on recently hooking up with Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z.
“I SAD IN THE STUDIO DAYS AGO WITH JIGGAMAN AND PHARRELL. PHARRELL LOOKS 19. THEY SEEMED LIKE OLD FRIENDS. I WONDER HOW MANY TROPHIES ARE LODGED IN THEIR MINDS. I WONDER WHY THEY STILL BUILD. I BUILD THINGS FOR THE SPORT AND THE THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS. FOR IMMORTALITY B*****TCH. I SAY IMMORTALITY IN JEST, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW ONE THING FOR CERTAIN. HOLY F*CK, I DON’T WANT WANNA WRITE ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW. [sic]” (Frank Ocean’s Tumblr)
A few months back, the West Coast singer came clean on revealing his bisexaulity last summer.
He said that his open letter was written in December 2011 with a view to include it in the album sleeve notes in order to pre-empt speculation that might arise from some of its songs addressing men. “I knew that I was writing in a way that people would ask questions,” he said. “I knew that my star was rising, and I knew that if I waited I would always have somebody that I respected be able to encourage me to wait longer, to not say it till who knows when.” The Odd Future member also downplayed the risk in his coming out. “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. They could do the same just because I’m American.” (Guardian)
