9 Things I learned About Frank Ocean in GayLetter Mag Interview!

Frank Ocean is far from a “recluse“. The idea…

“…is absurd ’cause I’m in the streets like all the time. I’m outside all the time, I’m traveling the world all the time. It’s funny to me that that’s the perception…but I’m just trying to put myself more into whatever kind of stream is going on here in culture. I don’t think my feelings about press have anything to do with how times are changing. I think it’s more a feeling…”

His favorite show at the moment is Chef’s Table. And…

“…It gets kind of brutal in parts. Some of the ingredients are wild. But it’s cool. It’s real. Handmaid’s Tale is really good. Heavy. I like Yara [Shahidi]’s show, Grown-ish. That’s a fun one…”

In the song “Good Guy” from Blonde, the gay bar Frank refers to is Boxers in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC!

A quality ALL his close friends share…”being reliable“.

He doesn’t fuck with dating apps…

“…I don’t use dating apps. 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.

He wishes he had taken more “ill-er” pics when he met President Barack Obama. He wants to take more pics of what’s going on around him in general…

“…There’s photos, but I’m not talking about the class-photo photos — the ill-er version of that moment. It’s all good. Not even that. I mean, that’s a great A1 moment, but there’s so many of those and so many that were more subtle. So I would definitely tell myself to ham it up and take more photos and try to take in what’s going on around you…”

Wikipedia needs to correct his height.

“…my Wikipedia says I’m 5’10”, but I’m 6’1”, so listen, we have to correct the kids on my height. [Laughs] It’s really affecting my future, blocking my shine…”
