50 Cent speaks on Frank Ocean
[DS]: 50 Cent has supported Frank Ocean’s decision to speak openly about his sexuality.
Ocean generated headlines earlier this month, when he revealed that his first love was a man. He also said that songs on his new album Channel Orange were inspired by the romance.
The Odd Future star has received messages of support from Russell Simmons, Busta Rhymesand Adele, with 50 Cent now praising the musician as well.
“Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot. I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like ‘Novacane’,” 50 Cent told MTV UK.
50 Cent added of Ocean’s choice to discuss his sexuality just before releasing Channel Orange: “It could be revolutionary or it could be a tragedy. You can call it brave or you can call it marketing, because it was intentional; it wasn’t an accident.”
The ‘In Da Club’ rapper went on to cite his own support for the LGBT community.
“Obama is for same-sex marriage. If the president is saying that, then who am I to go the other way?” 50 Cent declared.
US retail chain Target has announced that its stores will not stock Ocean’s Channel Orangebecause the album was released early to iTunes.
