Even since Frank Ocean came out as bisexual on his website last year, we've waited with bated breath for the R&B singer to release his next online scoop. Is that unfair to him? Probably; he's got his own life to lead outside being the subject of breathless blog posts. But regardless, last night Ocean answered our prayers, with a stream-of-consciousness look at where his head's at, at the moment.
From FrankOcean.com (and yes, we're posting the .jpeg because golly, who'd want to transcribe all that!)
Yikes, that's a lot of text, but don't worry, we'll help break it down for you.
Frank Ocean has a lot of goals. Like anyone else, Ocean is full of grand schemes that probably will not come to fruition. A brief list: Writing a novel about twins, starting a car club, building an arcade moving to New York or Tokyo. It's important to talk about these stupid dreams, even if it makes you feel silly—you can get advice, a connection, some words of warning, or even just a little reassurance that it's not ridiculous to have goals that probably won't come true.
He's very concerned with personal growth. Things Frank worries about himself: That he's losing religion. That he's becoming passive. That he's leaving behind people he loved. That starting to eat steak again might be unhealthy.
But he still can appreciate the small things. He's flown around the world, seen things he's never dreamed of, had brunch in the restaurant from Lost in Translation "like 9 times." He has a dog that loves him and an amazing house in LA. Life right now is good for him.
He's worried about how his work, and his work ethic, will last. A recent visit with Pharrell and Jiggaman got him thinking: What do artists like that, who have achieved every professional goal you can think of, still strive for? How do they keep the feeling of being 19, ambitious and struggling? "I build things for the sport and the therapeutic benefits. For immortality." Can that survive fame and fortune?
Frank knows he's still young. "I guess this is what going through things feels like."
Most importantly: Oreos don't soften the same in almond milk like they do in regular milk. Truth. Why is that?
