Frank Ocean Says His First Love Was A Man

Rising R&B star Frank Ocean comes out of the closet, saying he's bisexual.

To borrow language from Anderson Cooper's acknowledgment of his preferences from earlier this week, the fact is, R&B singer Frank Ocean is bisexual.

On July 4, the rising urban-music star—who earned his stripes guesting on tracks for platinum acts including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, and has a much anticipated debut album out this month—took to his Tumblr blog to detail how his first love had been a man.

The intimate posting describes how Ocean emotionally struggled with the relationship and how his boyfriend ultimately spurned the singer's attempts to justify their love. "I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after together. Every day almost," Ocean wrote. "Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling, no choice. It was my first love. It changed my life."
