Rumors: Frank Ocean May Have Revealed Being Bisexual on New Album

I listened to "The Breakfast Club" on Power 105.1 a couple of weeks back and they said a new R&B artist is coming out the closet on their new album. They didn't say which R&B artist and left the answer up in the air for listeners to think about it.

Well recently, I just figured out the answer (or maybe I didn't). 

Singer and songwriter Frank Ocean - who appears on Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne album on the song "No Church in the Wild" - has reportedly admitted to being bisexual on his debut album Channel Orange which is due out July 17th.

An excerpt via This is Max:
“Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music. On the songs ‘Bad Religion’ ‘Pink Matter and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and their are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her’.
In the world we live in now we can’t see this being an issue or why it should be?? But we do commend him for not continuing a facade and conforming to what a Hip Hop so called rule book expects, we say live your life and be yourself.”

Ocean allegedly coming out as gay on the album is coming as a surprise to fans and has become a buzz on Twitter. 

Although he reportedly refers to love interests on his album as "him" instead of "her," which caused people to question his sexuality, he has yet to confirm nor deny the allegations.
