Published Oct 16, 2012Back in the summer, Frank Ocean turned heads by penning an open letter about his sexuality, revealing that he first fell in love with a man at age 19. Now, the buzzed-about R&B crooner has given us another personal, heartfelt message.
On his Tumblr page, Ocean posted a new letter in the form of a screen-capped text file. While none of the content from this latest letter is likely to generate quite as much discussion as his prior revelation, it's undoubtedly an interesting glimpse into what the singer has planned next.
Most significantly, Ocean shed light on his upcoming projects, both musical and non-musical. He writes that he has been in the studio with Pharrell and Jay-Z. Ocean writes, "I sat in the studio days ago with Jiggaman and Pharrell. Pharrell looks 19. They seemed like old friends. I wonder how many trophies are lodged in their minds. I wonder why they still build. I build things for the sport and therapeutic benefits. For immortality biiiitch. I say immortality in jest, because we all know one thing for certain."
Ocean adds, "I'm working on a lot of music. I'm gonna get back to that now."
However, the real gold may be Ocean's other plans, which he says involves building an arcade, starting a "car club" and, perhaps best of all, writing a novel.
"I want to write a novel about twins," Ocean writers. "Some type of nature versus nurture tale. I've said that to a neighbor before. It's an open ended idea."
All this being said, who knows how serious any of this is.
But on top of all this, he once again addresses love, revealing, "I was falling for someone new, if I already hadn't. It was incredible. It was ridiculously awesome. it came and went and maimed us a little. Not much. A little later, he continues, "The number one rule in relationships, from what I hear, is to never just leave. I flew around the word in 2012. Had a special time."
