50 Cent Supports Frank Ocean, Says Only ‘An Idiot’ Would Have Issues With the Singer’s Sexuality

Never mind Frank Ocean‘s sexuality, 50 Cent says. Dude can sing.

“Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot,” the rapper said in an interview with MTV UK, showing support for the rising R&B star, who revealed earlier this month that his first love was a man. “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.'”

“I can care less about what his personal preference is in his actual bedroom,” Fiddy added. “To say you don’t like Frank Ocean is to say maybe you don’t like Luther Vandross.”

The difference between Ocean and artists like Vandross — a popular soul singer long rumored to be gay — is that he “chose to expose it to the general public before an actual release of music,” 50 said.

On that point, the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ MC pointed out that Ocean might have had financial incentive to make his big announcement on July 4, just as he was prepping his major-label debut, Channel Orange.

“You can call it brave or you can call it marketing, because it was intentional — it wasn’t an accident,” 50 said.
