Frank Ocean Comes Out

It's been a big week for celebrity outings. First, news anchor Anderson Cooper finally acknowledged what most already assumed was true, telling The Daily Beast's Andrew Sullivan, "The fact is, I'm gay." Now Odd Future singer Frank Ocean is following Cooper's lead. The 24-year-old announced on his Tumblr today that his first love was a man. "4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19. He was too. We spent that summer, the summer afar, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time could glide," he wrote. "I don't have any secrets I need to keep anymore…I feel like a free man. If I listen closely. I can hear the sky falling too." Fellow Odd Future member, Tyler, The Creator, who was called "irresponsible" last year by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, tweeted that he was proud of his friend, "cause I know that shit is difficult or whatever."
