Hilarious: Tyler, The Creator On How He Knew Frank Ocean Was Gay

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.

    I just assumed people who liked poptarts without frosting had never experienced joy in life. But more power to Frank

    • erockbaby3000

      I didn’t even know you could eat pop tarts without frosting. But yeah if you eating pop-tarts without frosting you need to think about your life decisions and invest in some taste buds that seem like they belong to a white person

  • Cxnt

    Wait… I also like pop tarts without frosting and I’m full fledged fag. Maybe he’s on to something. D:

  • Guest

    People kill me with that bullshit…use of derogatory slurs doesn’t take the power from a slur; it’s still just as offensive. I hate the words “nigga” and “faggot”; they sting everytime I hear a person use them. There isn’t any type of endearment in the use of slurs.

    • earthshaker1217

      If they ain’t talking about cigarettes, then they don’t have reason to use one of those words.

    • Breeze

      You can decide how words affect you. Look at the word bitch. B

    So Is It Safe 2 Say That iThink Tyler Really Wants Frank 2 Find His G-Spot? Or Is That Just Me?

    It’s sad how gay and bisexual have just been forced into one. Like the minute someone isn’t heterosexual there can’t be more than one box they check mark. Or no box at all. Just sad, we’ve got a way to go.

    • Cxnt

      I mean, I agree, definitely, but maybe he IS GAY.

      He’s yet to admit to one label or the other, and in my opinion, why should he? Labels are whack. However, just because he dated a woman before his gay affair, doesn’t mean he’s bi. Many a gay have started out with women before realizing their true desires. And we definitely can’t assume he’s bi because of certain lyrics in his music. He’s an artist, he has to sell to a certain demographic.

      • Seats

        Right I agree with you that’s what I mean when I say “or no box at all”. I apologize if this was confusing.

        Frank hasn’t admitted to a label, himself. But from what I remember last year dream hampton spoke to him and he said he was okay with the bisexual label and on Tyler’s formspring after the letter Tyler said something to the effect of he’s not the one who’s bisexual it’s Frank. So that’s the only reason I called him bisexual or again I agree he could be gay or not labelling himself.

    I personally think Tyler is a disciple for the devil, but that pop tart shit was funny though…

    • Saminiah Jones

      He’s an atheist. That means he doesn’t believe in any god. Especially the devil. I should know because I’m an atheist.

      • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

        Well just b/c you don’t doesn’t mean he doesn’t. Sometimes some atheists believe more in the evil than the good especially when some love to bring up the evil to discredit the good.

        • Cough

          The definition of atheist is that you do not believe is ANY religion. Nothing to do with good or evil, heaven or hell, God or Satan. If a person ventures towards believing or worshiping any of them he is not an atheist.

          • Cough


          • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

            hunny, I know the text book definition of many religions and beliefs but just like their are people in The Christian camp who claim the name and make up their own rules there people on your team who remix atheism lol. Like I said we don’t truly know the ins and outs of his beliefs.

  • Keetha Montana-Lucas

    i dig weird ass tyler for some reason— he’s a hilarious cat. and if you have watched him during interviews he’s always goofy. the pop tart reference was to take the seriousness out of it… im pretty sure they tired of hearing it at this point.

  • missmarchmommy

    i laughed at the poptart statement lol… However the use of the F word is still not cool thats like a white person hollering I can use Nigga cause I have black friend… Its still unacceptable, however I don’t care for Tyler or his creations…..

    • earthshaker1217

      I feel like his creations might summon something from the Hellmouth and I’m good friends with Buffy or Willow or Spike…yet. I don’t even know Giles.

      • erockbaby3000

        Look at there Creator, does he look like anything he create would look good. I mean that nigga look like Gollum off of lord of the rings or like one of those inferi from harry potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This nigga look like he stay summoning shit from the lower cirlces of hell.

  • RamenNoodles

    I really want to touch on this “f” word, but I don’t want WW3 to begin. I don’t use it and I have my reasons, but I agree with Tyler, that its just a word.

    • Matthew Gerald Cobbs

      If you’re gay, you’re entitled to your opinion on the word. However, as Tyler has not come out of the closet and is presumably straight, he has no right to decide whether the word is offensive. How can he speak for my experience?

      • nigga

        he isn’t . he’s using the word fag. that isn’t “speaking for your experience.” him using it means that as far he is concerned the word isn’t offensive. you decide what is offensive to you but you don’t get to decide that for anyone else. i personally think that anyone who doesn’t want the word used around them should stop saying it all together (same goes for nigga). doesn’t mean everyone else thinks that though and they have the right to their opinions and i will respect them for their opinions. anyone is entitled to their opinion on ANY word idc if you’re gay,straight bi, blue, red, orange etc.

        • Matthew Gerald Cobbs

          Yes, I get to decide what is offensive to me, and reasonable people respect that. It’s an easy way to weed out people who aren’t worthy of my company.

  • caseyG101

    While we’re at it, we should just start calling each other chinks and spiks and kikes, since they’re just words. Ezekiel Banks or whatever her name is, pulled the same mess on Twitter. Bitch boo bye, with that one. Yes, we shouldn’t let those words defines us but should I ever tell my dad, while at the dinner table, “Hey fag, pass the salt.”? Hell to the damn no.

    • Jacqxz

      NIGGA WHY THE FUCK IT TOOK ME 3 MINS TO REALIZE EZEKIEL WAS AZALEIA!?!?!? oooohhh sweet biiiitch noooo lmaaaaoooo

    • earthshaker1217

      Or Sorry or Clue.

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    Okay I laughed at that poptart thing and i got me thinking lol… but I’ve never been here for Tyler and the only person in that odd bunch I like is Frank.

  • NoEffinJoke

    Tyler’s face. I just cannot. I’ve tried to not be shocked by it, but it gets me every time.

    • Damn

      Yes! Every time i read your comment, i get so much life. Completely agreed!

  • Hmm

    So is frank fully gay ? Or ..

    • Rihanna’s Left Breast

      I mean…as opposed to quarter-of-a-tank gay? :/ …. o/ lol

  • Doyenne Eleganza Saint-Augusti

    I understand what Tyler’s saying.

    People trip on some of the stupidest shit nowadays. Everybody needs a cause except for the shit that requires real work and dedication (like, it’s amazing that there’s so much attention on the Supreme Court and a bunch of white folk’s opinion on gay marriages this week but a thick ass layer of smog is choking the shit out of Phoenix and a thousand other places in this country).

    Fag ain’t nothing but a bundle of sticks or a cigarette if you’re in the Queen’s country. Yes, it can be hurtful, along with a million other words we use at home when we think nobody’s listening. If you’re secure with your identity then I don’t see why you’d get butthurt (pun intended) just by a damn word. I, personally, think it’s funny as shit. You kind of have to when you realize that most people that use it as a weapon are incredibly weak.

  • KidFury

    I just want Frank Ocean to move into my uterus. Fuck everything else.

  • Jacob Alexander

    LMAO now every closeted homosexual is going to be sure to get extra frosting on their poptarts, so instead of looking fruity, they’ll be looking fat. But this is cool in it shows them having an actual friendship as opposed to a “business relationship.” Real people with real talent, that’s what the industry needs truthfully.

    • CadyHeron

      I agree.

  • CadyHeron

    I like Tyler. I like Frank. Moves on.

  • CrunkFan012

    I never was sure if Frank was a top or bottom, but looking at this photo I now know.
