Frank Ocean lauded for revealing same-sex love

NEW YORK (AP) — The music industry is showing support to R&B singer Frank Ocean after he revealed his first love was a man.

Ocean announced the news Wednesday on his blog. His record label’s president said Thursday in a statement to The Associated Press that “Def Jam is so proud to stand beside Frank Ocean.”

Joie Manda says: “Frank broke down a wall that should never have been built.”

Def Jam founder Russell Simmons posted on his official website that he’s moved by Ocean’s “courage and honesty.”

Ocean is best known for the R&B songs “Novacane” and “Thinkin Bout You.” The 24-year-old self-released his 2011 debut, “nostalgia, ULTRA,” to critical success and will release an official album, “Channel Orange,” July 17.

Ocean’s written songs for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
