Frank Ocean has been relatively quiet since he released his two albums Endless and Blonde. But while attending President Barack Obama's final State Dinner at the White House on Tuesday (Oct. 18), the R&B singer gave his first interview in three years to the media waiting outside.
Although it was a brief interview, he did answer some questions in front of C-SPAN cameras. The reporter seemed interested in his fashion choice of wearing checkered Vans to a formal event.
"It's my first time doing it," he said of his kicks. "Probably because it's my first time here...You can't think. You just have to do things."
When the reporter asked if he ever thought that he would be attending a White House State Dinner, Ocean replied, "No, I didn't. I think that explains the Vans."
Ocean also told the reporter that he plans on congratulating Obama and ask him if he had fun during his eight-year run as president. Finally, the reporter asked him if he would support Hillary Clinton with a concert like his other fellow artists.
"Concerts, probably not," he said. "We're running out of time, I think. Might have to catch her in four years."
Frank Ocean was among a bevy of celebrities who attended the State Dinner at the White House. His date for the night was his mother, Katonya Breaux Riley. Also in attendance was Chicago native Chance the Rapper.
