The Blonde singer said in the cover interview released yesterday (16 April) that he has been in a low-key long-term relationship. But stopped short of that.
He went onto admit he doesn’t ‘use dating apps’ as it is ‘a little hectic being a famous person on dating apps.’ What did the singer say?
The 31-year-old has actively resisted labels on his sexual identity in the past. He admitted in a 2011 Tumblr note his first love was a man, and sang in Chanel that he can ‘see both sides like Chanel.’
True to his anti-tick box rep, Ocean stated he doesn’t use dating apps. Not that he dislikes them, but because he’s in a long-term relationship. ‘I don’t use dating apps,’ he said, ‘I’ve been in a relationship for three years.
‘I definitely wasn’t using dating apps before then. I don’t think I would use dating apps now.
‘I f*** with Marc Jacobs’ philosophy on that, so, I wouldn’t rule it out, but it is a little hectic being a famous person on dating app.’ Frank Ocean is a RuPaul’s Drag Race
Though, he admitted he doesn’t ‘really keep up with it like I should,’ Ocean said out of ‘all the talent on TV, [RuPaul’s Drag Race] would be the most likely’ for him to star as a guest judge on.
For an artist known more for his beats than a particularly forthcoming persona, this is a revelation. He went onto to clear up some small curiosities, like that the gay bar referenced in Blonde’s Good Guy track is actually Hell’s Kitchen bar, Boxers in New York City.
Moreover, he still wants to go to college, and despite what Wikipedia says, he’s not 5’10”. He’s actually 6’1″.
He added: ‘Listen, we have to correct the kids on my height. It’s really affecting my future, blocking my shine.’ See also
