Ne-Yo is taking Frank Ocean’s recent revelation in stride as he supports the singer’s new album.
While every celeb from Tyler the Creator to Beyoncé has congratualted Frank on his confession that his first love was a man, Ne-Yo is still more focused on Frank as an artist.
“To each his own, if that’s how he rock, that’s how he rock, you know," Ne-Yo told Power 106. "It don’t change the fact that his music is incredible. It don’t change the fact that he’s an incredible artist. He chose to put his personal life out there, and that’s him."
He added, "If that’s really who you are, then by all means do what you do. I’m not gonna judge you behind that. That’s not my place."
Ne-Yo is also familiar with questions over his sexuality, but he’s urging his haters to come up with some different insults. Basically, the gay rumors are getting old.
"Call me ugly or something, let’s think of something else," he stated. "This whole gay thing has been lingering for a little too long. Say I’m adopted, I’ll take the ninja turtle comments, I’ll take that. Let’s do something else."
Frank dropped his Channel Orange album last night, about a week before it was intended to come out. With less than a day on the market, Channel Orange has seemingly been met with nothing but praise. However, Target has decided not to sell the album in its stores, and someone from Frank’s team suggets that it may have something to do with Frank’s coming out.
"Target has refused to carry Franks album because of Itunes exclusive. Interesting since they also donate to non equal rights organizations," the insider tweeted.
