Odd Future's Frank Ocean Reveals His First Love Was A Man

CelebritiesDirt Bag

In December of 2011, when Frank Ocean, R&B singer and member of hip-hop collective Odd Future, was on a plane from New Orleans to L.A. he wrote a document in text-edit that he has now published on his tumblr which reveals him to be bisexual. The summer that Ocean was 19, he fell in love with his closest friend, a boy of the same age. “I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed as a teenager, the ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend for the first time. I realized they were written in a language I did not yet speak.” His friend, who had a girlfriend, reciprocated his feelings three years later, but it didn’t work out between them. “I don’t know what happens now, and that’s alrite. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore. There’s probably some small shit still, but you know what I mean.” [Complex]

Here is the trailer for the newest Tom Cruise action franchise, Jack Reacher. Looks like… oh, like everything, really. Why do people forget he’s short? [L.A. Times]

Meanwhile, like the majestic honey badger who don’t give a shit, Katie Holmes and Suri went out for ice cream while Jack Reacher spent a sad, lonesome 50th birthday over Iceland. [NYDN]

Emma Stone on playing Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man:

“I’ve never really played a damsel in distress before. That was a big draw, maybe like a morbid curiosity of mine. I’ve never played someone who ultimately is reliant on a man, and I found that interesting. I know that’s the opposite of what I’ve usually said, because I love strong, independent female characters; there’s not enough of them. But there’s also something tragic and head-over-heels in love about Gwen; it’s like a Romeo and Juliet situation and something I felt a kinship to for whatever reason. That first love… oh, boy.” [Herald Sun]
