Tyler, the Creator, whose album Wolf drops on April 2nd, is in the latest issue of Rolling Stone where he mentions his fellow Odd Future member, Frank Ocean, and how he knew the singer-songwriter was gay.
Did you know Frank Ocean was gay before he came out last year?
Yeah, I was one of the first people he told. I kinda knew, because he likes Pop Tarts without frosting on them, so I knew something was weird. [Laughs] But that’s my nigga.
Maybe I’m wrong for laughing, but that was funnier that cross-eyed titties. Tyler also spoke on his use of the word “faggot” and how it doesn’t affect his friendship with Frank.
Do you think he cares about you using the word “faggot”?
He knows me, and he knows I don’t care about being gay. It’s just another word to me. The same as “nigga.” Let’s say Frank started using the word “fag,” just jokingly. People would be so fucking confused! They wouldn’t know what to do. And it could take the power out of that word.
