Mysonne Calls Frank Ocean's Open Letter A "Cheap Gimmick" To Sell Albums

Fans can count Mysonne amongst the skeptics with regard to Frank Ocean's recent announcement about his sexuality.

Much has been made of Frank Ocean's recent open letter about his sexuality. While droves of artists came forward in support of the singer, it appears that at least one artist is skeptical of the revelation.

In an interview with VladTV, Mysonne explained recent comments he made on Twitter, where he decried Frank Ocean's choice, calling it a "cowardly move" and saying it was "deceitful" to his fan base:

"Well basically what I said was I felt that he made a coward's move," he said of Frank Ocean's decision. "When you come into this industry, we're all faced with dilemmas and we're all faced with choices and I think when you take a choice to deceive a fan base based on whatever it is, whatever it is that you represent - if you represent it, say, 'This is what I represent.' Don't wait until you get a fan base following you because they think you represent something else and then say, 'Oh, by the way, I just happen to be bisexual or gay.' Especially as an R&B artist."

Mysonne continued, citing Ocean's decision to push his album Channel Orange to an earlier release date. "I felt that the timing, also, made it real suspect to me. Oh, now you wait until your album's about to drop?"

"It had nothing to do with your sexuality or anything," he added. "If a homosexual had made the same statement and had came out and he had fooled every gay person to following him and said, 'You know what? I'm straight now.' I just think it's deceit and I just think it's cowardice, and I think for us not to acknowledge what it is, or for us to praise that, gives off the wrong sense of what we stand for. It gives off the wrong message."

Mysonne concluded that Ocean's choice was about selling albums. "The Hip Hop community is already under fire, and when we keep using these cheap gimmicks and strategies to sell records, and build up [buzz], it just demeans the quality of what we do."

    Where was this industry support for black men like Donnie, an R&B artist, who walked into the game identifying as a homosexual man. It didn't matter to me as his 1st CD, Welcome to the Colored Section" was/is one of my favorie CDs. How about the support for poor Tevin Campbell who was outted and shoved out of the music industry with a quickness? Fake industry/media support for a fake a** lying "brotha". I'm sure he will winn a Grammy behind this stunt for sure!

  • Jamie

    KUDOS to this brother right here! I am shocked and amazed that ppl in general & psudeo celebrities -Jamie Fake, Jermaine Dupri(called Frank Ocean the savior of R&B), Russell Simmons (is connected to DefSCAM so of course he supports Ocean) Beyonce goes with whatever is popular - are supporting Frank Ocean's lying and very dishonest ways! Bisexuality is nothing to play with especially for women. DL males lie to everyone to get what they want and have left many a women devastated. The fact that he used his status to sell his new CD is disgusting. For the Record, I listened to the free preview of Frank's CD and it's just not that good. The media of course will promote it and him as the NEW KING OF R&B just watch! Don't fall for the scheme ppl! There is nothing wrong with being a HETEROSEXUAL BLACK MALE.....NOTHING AT ALL!!

  • Anonymous

    I agree! Especially with the alignment with the president's statement. If sex is a private act, why make it a public announcement? If someone asks, "tell me about yourself" and I say I am attracted to women, people would say ok and...so why is it so defining when a man likes a man? That's your business! To deceive people and become a rolemodel and then market your sexual preference to the world, that's wack. Too many young impressionable minds are still forming their identity!

    Bwash: Its funny seeing all the people all hot and bothered by gay ppl lol.. who cares?... I like pussy so why would I be worried about what other DUDES are doing?? hey if dudes are fuckin with other guys that just means more available bitches for me haha... people are dumb as fuck Posted8 hours ago | Reply fuckin right: real talk. people need to get out of everyone else's bedroom. ============================================ You two niggaz are dumb as fuck. So if an old man chooses to have sex with a 14yr old, its none of ur business, right? Homosexuality is not right in any way or form u could try to put it.

    • Jamie

      Wow, WTF? No one cares about ppl being gay. That's not the issue at hand. Frank Ocean' claim of be bisexual (DL brother sexing everyone your mother and your brother equally....ewww) was a ploy to sell CDs. Now watch as the biased gay-oriented media compares him and his record sells to other artists and claim that he represents the new FACE OF R&B! Pay close attention to the game the media is getting ready to run on you ppl! Also, pay close attention to the COWARDS in the music industry as they bend over backwards to publically support him.

    • Anonymous

      Yo they dumb as fuck when u just compared homosexuality to child molestation..thats quiite a leap. So two dudes or females that love each other is the equivalent of an old man with a 14 year old...lmao..makes sense..?

  • Christian Bale's Batman voice

    Has Mysonne ever truly been relevant? I can't even remember or name a song by this guy...not talking about a guest appearance, but an actual solo song. All I know about him is he was on Def Jam for a hot second back in the day but got locked up & never dropped. In fact, I know him more for being locked up than for any actual music (google his name & "Mysonne Jail" comes up when you're typing it in so what does that tell you?). I don't follow Frank Ocean, but this dude should be more concerned about stepping his career game up than bashing somebody with actual relevance. An irrelevant rapper speaking on someone who's actually doing something with their career just looks stupid & holds no weight. It's like a drunk wino talking shit about Bill Gates.

  • Jack Compton

    Oh the irony.

    • $p|!ff999 aka $p|@t17

      I find it EXTREMELY strange that dudes on a hip hop site saying shit like this is the 21st century, you're a homophobe. Lots of faggits lurking round here huh?

  • Anonymous

    Man I could understand this dude's view because at the time that everything happened, but he need to think this through. 1. How is it deceitful? I don't think artistes specifically discuss their sexual orientation on their first single, and if he did it would have given him a stigma and may have driven people away 2. This Frank's 1st album, still relatively early in dudes career so he isn't being deceitful. Being deceitful would be saying that he wrote those songs from a female perspective, which in truth would have been the easier thing to do. How is it "cowardice" to come out with your orientation? When he has to face so much discrimination now 3. Frank didn't come out with the news, people who heard his album made the statement and his letter was a reply to that article and clearing up any misconceptions about the songs and the article. 4. Who da hell is Mysonne? I just want people to be a little more open minded, there are a lot of gimicks surrounding hip-hop album's releases, but this didn't seem planned. He said Kanye and Jay-Z inspired his decision to release it early, seems like a good idea these days in this era of pirated music.

    • Dre

      Finalllllly someone I agree with. I dont understand WHAT SO EVER how him coming out is deceitful and cowardice... I totally disagree that he will get more record sales because hes bi. This blog is PROOF that it does the exact opposite.. Lately everytime Ive heard a new song by him, people are saying how they cant relate to it anymore because he could be singing to a man.. How ignorant is that? No where in the song does me he mention hes speaking to a man for one... for two words are words...No matter whos singing it to who.. If your are or have been in that situation... then you can relate..I cant stand simple minded people..

    • 3030

      I read your whole response, and while I don't agree with Mysonne's thoughts, I do think that Ocean's announcement was driven more by a desire to sell records, rather than to make a stand or statement. It's in that way that I think it is slightly deceitful. However, Mysonne's assertion that someone might be upset or confused because they identified with Ocean when they thought he was heterosexual is strange to me.

    In a way he has a point but at the same time Frank Ocean had to do it now or never, nigga put TWO tracks on the album about a guy he loves

  • CMON SON

    Not for nothing, gay , bisexual , straight or not nigga put out an amazing album, so saying it demeans the quality of music being produces is clearly false. I think it's vital to separate personal life with music life, since every thing is watered down and false anyways nowadays. This isn't hip hop, this is r&b. If he comes back and says he was lying about his sexuality then so be it, he'll suffer not you. But for now, respect it for what it is. You think everyone is praising him for what he did? Hell no, nigga is actually being hated now. We'll see though. Let a nigga live though. This is the 21st century not the 19th century, this article is pointless, where the fuck is this niggas career? Cmon son.

      In Oldie he says "I'm high and I'm bi" then Thinking Bout You is about his first love which he eventually states is a guy.

    • BradZuk

      also, on we all try he sings "I believe that marriage isn't Between a man and woman but between love and love" thats far from explicit, but he hasnt been shy about expressing his opinions.

    • CMON SON

      In reality, that's all it is though. He needed to build a fan base before he revealed his secret. It's the smartest thing to do if you're trying to become someone in the music industry. Without loyal fans in this ignorant ass society, the audience of R&B wouldn't give him a chance with so many other great singers, regardless of his ability to write and make music. And I have to agree with Anonymous on this one, Scared Of Beautiful hints to his homosexuality, but who were we to know anything at the time.

    I will be honest. With Frank has coming out. I find it weird listening to his music now. I'm sorry, how can you feel cool knowing that somewhere, twisted in his lyrics, there maybe a PAUSE! line waiting for you to recite on the train or at his show. I'm just saying. If you don't believe me, go look at the Odd Future video Oldies. Look at Earl face, when he is reciting Frank's lyrics. When Frank said "May Be I'm Bi" Earl eyes and mouth was wide with the OH SH*T NO HOMO. LOL

    • BradZuk

      Im sure all o fodd future is well aware of his homosexuality. and if youre really that worried about reciting a line from a song that could implicate you as gay, you are probably just worried about people realizing you actually are gay. 1. you shouldnt feel bad about being gay 2. if you you arent, have some goddamn confidence. noone is going to care if you sing a frank ocean song

    I agree completely with Bwash.. the people who are the most angry about this and trash talking Ocean, probably have the most to hide. haha I still don't see why its even a big deal that Ocean is gay? Are you homophobics that afraid that his lips will jump out through the song and plant upon your lap? haha if not, grow the fuck up. People are people, who cares if he likes guys. I love women, and happen to enjoy his music. It doesn't mean that I now like dude's, I swear people are so ignorant.

      Its not a fucking "hipster movement." its just that all the fucking sane people in the world, who listen to what scientists and psychologists and homosexuals themselves are acutally saying have come to realize that a person's sexuality is inherent, and out of their control. And so, they are decided not to discriminate against those people. that does not mean its "cool to be gay." im sure most people would prefer to not have to deal with asshole like you, and would like to have kids of their own. But they, and the better part of society, have learned to accept it for what it is. You should do the same.

      Thats exactly the point, the amount of influence these artist have is obviously unpercievably incredible, so now you have homosexuality as the next hipster movement GTFOH!!

  • V A

    The reason Frank showed the letter was because at the listening party for his album, journalists began to pick up on some of the lyrics referencing "him" and started their own theories. Frank did it so he could be the one to address the common appearances of a man being the subject of the song. He released it early only digitally because he saw how it worked for Watch The Throne, which he was on. People need to do their research.

    • DefScam

      DefSCAM records produced both WTT & Ocean's crap. They knew he was bisexual (fooling men & women) and decided to release his CD ahead of schedule to get the temporary fan support in order to increase CD profits. they also had DefSCAM artists like JayZ, his wife Beyonce, Solange her sister and Uncle Rush CEO come out to praise him. The media claims that if you don't support Frank Ocean it's becuase you are HOMOPHOBIC which is complete bullsh*t. I just don't like his music. It's Indie-R&B not like Maxwell or Marvin Gaye.

  • d-nucks

    bout time a real nigga spoke on this.....Ya'll not paying attention...the record industry and Entertainment industry as a whole has recognized the fact the homosexual community is a HUGE MARKET.... What would Lady Gaga bea without her homosexual fan base? Even Nicki menaj played the bisexual role..till she could'nt any more...just enough to reel homosexual clientel in. Frank Ocean is doing the same thing.....HE HAS NEVER SEEN THIS MUCH ATTENTION TILL HE ANNOUCNED THAT HE IS GAY AND HAS GAY TENDENCIES. Now everyday...some artist comes out and praises him and say how courageous he is. Media is makeing a point to go around and ask as many people as they deem influential on the subject of Frank ocean "comming out". And of course these scared industry niggaz are not going to go against the grain..becuae GLADD has EVERYBODY SHOOK, and nobody wants to be protested by them.

    • NO

      he lost all his homophobic fans "Fans are fickle" -Danny Brown Frank would have done well anyways his music is dope. ever occur to you that maybe he wanted to give us a heads up about the Forrest Gump n shit so we werent all shocked or freaked out when we peeped the album...see if he really wanted to turn heads and get known he would have just put out channel ORANGE with those tracks on it lmao.really think.Mysonne is a nobody, and certainly doesn't keep it real.cuz thats what I just did.

    • Yes

      I agree with you d-nucks %100. Frank has blown up so much. I mean he was already popular to begin with, but after this announcement its just skyrocketed. Check out "Oldie" and look how many fans just came for him and what they have too say. Its amazing. Frank knows what it takes, and he is using it. They call us gullible for believing Mysonne, when in reality they are the ones falling for it. So many rappers were against homosexuality but now that Frank comes out, its like, "Oh we was just kidding dawg, we love ya'll homos". They gotta keep that fan-base, that's why.

    • d-nucks

      How the fuck he loose alot of fans? I bet he gained more than he lost..as i stated before this is the most PRESS FRANK OCEAN HAS EVER GOT....fact!...and to d-nutz....nigga he has just enough influence and relvency to be posted on this site don't he? This article about Mysonne got 4 pages worth of comments. Ya'll can't be that dumb to NOT SEE THE BUISNEESS ASPECT OF APPEALING TO HOMESEXUAL COMMUNITY. Its a market that has newly been tapped...why you think Murs just dropped his lil homesexual video? Now everybody talking bout him....wake the fuck up......people are to gullible and sheeplike...its ridiculous

    Its amazing how people are ignorant or stupid because they voice thier opinion and go against the grain. Do i agree with Mysonne, yes! Because i also felt that it was a ploy to increase sales. Some of you may be choosing to be delusional, but the timing of his letter sais it all. Why didnt he drop that letter after the album or sometime last year? It bugged me out cuz he runs with Odd Future and they have some of the most anti gay content in thier music. Do I care about Frank Oceans preference? No. But some of yall are crazy if you think that people are supposed to accept and embrace homosexuality because mainstream society is beginning to do so. The sad thing is that there is no standard anymore. Anything goes and thats whats fucking up society.

    Gimmick or no gimmick, I'm getting sick of hearing about it, personally it doesn't affect what I think of Frank Ocean anyway,,cause I was never gonna buy or download his album not that big a fan, However he can do and say what he wants, so Mysonne who gives a shit!! and media get over your gay fetish..there's more important stuff going on in the world than who's Gay and who's not, and one more thing, personally I don't care to know what these artist do in their spare time or with whom just shut the f#*k up and make music!!!

    With all these bullshits yawl undercover fags are spewing, yawl can say the same things about pedophiles too. If gays should be accepted because they can love who the fuck they want, then pedophiles should be accepted too. Think about it idiots. Homosexuals are as bad and pedophiles, simple as that.

      ^^^ Kids can't consent. How fucking hard is it to understand that that is why gay is fine but pedophilia isn't.

      You niggas are moronic idiots. Wasnt u niggas talking any man can have sex with anybody they want and not giving a fuck? If thats the logic, then pedophiles could keep fucking young kids cause thats not ur businesses right? If a 14yr old fell in love with a 60yr old man, there should be no problem since yawl dont care what another man does in his bedroom. Fucking hypocrites. You niggaz just dont have common senses. Think outside the box, u faggot ass niggaz. I do not condone sodomy and will never do. Them whiteys got yawl simple-minded niggas fucked up. Sooner or later, I will move back to Africa. Thats where my forefathers came from anyways.

      "being gay is sexually violating the biological terms set up by Mother Nature for human beings as a way for procreation and family settings" so is is oral sex, having sex with condoms, and anal sex with women.... yet you'd probabl participate in that kind of "unnatural" activity if you had the opportunity. typical self-righteous hypocrite who only wear his moral hat when it's convenient to his own double standards. And many you should worry about about the divorce rate between men and women before you start lecturing us about family structure.

    First of all, this guy needs to shut up. He would have been questioned about why he didn't do it sooner once his album came out. Plus, why the hell not push it up if everyone is talking about you? The music is superb and speaks for itself, nobody can deny that. Second of all, all you bigots, idiots and ignoramuses really need to re-evaluate yourselves. Calling him and LGBTQ people F*gs and other derogatory terms citing God and going against nature and all that BS, stop projecting your ignorance and hateful beliefs in God's name. If there is one, I'm sure he/she/it would not be proud of your actions. I'm sure a lot of you are just trolling for the sake of sounding stupid, but unfortunately some of you believe the crap you say and it's unfortunate that you are so uncomfortable with yourself that the way some is (keyword "is" because who would choose to be hated by people they don't even know) bothers you so much. I wish you people the best, and hopefully our culture can grow up out of this ignorance sooner rather than later.

    First of all what I don't understand is why someone hates on a faggot then all of a sudden that person is either "hiding" something or religious. I just hate faggots. People hate R. Kelly cause he peed on someone. so because they hate him they pee on people too? I hate pedophiles as well does that ALSO mean I'm a pedophile? I hate rapists, murderers, white people all just the same but it doesn't make me any of the aforementioned. It's stupid reasoning and its something that the general public has done with homosexuals in general (because lets face it if a straight man says he is Bi, he IS AND WILL BE HOMOSEXUAL) to shield faggots from any type of insults like its a fuckin handicap. It's not and I'm tired of something so stupid and small being a fuckin issue. What it comes down to is if the music is any good. Obviously if he has a CD where all he talks about is doing homosexual acts and what not then its obviously not for me. But if its good then why hate? Who the fuck is this Mysonne guy anyway?

    Thats what it is, anybody with half a brain can see that. Not that I care if he came out or not, what other people do in their bedrooms means less to me then a pile of dogshit, but you know they plotted the announcement to coincide with his album release, improved his buzz 10 fold, wasnt nobody talkin bout Frank Oceans album like that until this hype and controversy. Albums dope tho so do what you have to do, Eminem let some comedian put his ass in his face for hype a few years ago. No publicity stunt surprises me anymore

  • Fado

    lol. all the niggas on here getting sincerely mad about Frank Ocean being gay must be insecure about their sexuality saying fag this and that typing in all caps. Ask yourself why does another mans sexual preference make you so mad....I don't give a fuck if dudes gay or anything else, or if he revealed being gay as a publicity stunt or not. I care about the quality of the music he makes. All of the niggas on here writing essays about how evil it is to be gay are suspect.

  • Anonymous

    Right, first of all Frank didn't reveal this information himself, a guy who works for a music site who went to the albums listening party did. I'm sure if Frank had it his way people wouldn't have found out until after the album was out by which time his chance for big sales would already be gone. Secondly, cowardly? Really? Wow, surely to have a massive fanbase who think you're straight then to come out as gay would be much tougher than saying it from the top (If he had done that, no one would know/want to know who he is such is the homophobic nature of hip hop and r&b) And finally, isn't it kind of ironic and contradictory that by saying Frank used this to make headlines mysonne is clearly trying to make headlines. I mean seriously who the fuck is this guy? I think I have only seen his name once before when he dropped a shitty verse on a game mixtape.

  • DL Dub

    For real? People think this dude is right? So wait a minute, you make music that mostly black people hear (because I have yet to hear a white person utter the name Frank Ocean) and you get the sudden urge to tell the most homophobic race in america that you bang dudes on occasion, and you believe that will get you more album sales? That's really what this dude thought was going through the mind of Ocean? What an idiot. And the people who think this dude is right are dumbasses too. I got nothing against Frank Ocean. I personally dont listen to his music, I dont see the talent that everyone else seems desperate to cling on to, and that's fine with me. I dont give a shit if he bangs chicks, dudes, or even fuckin horses, it really aint my business. But I do know that it's been for the longest time it's been ridiculously hard for people to come out and say they're gay, because people as a whole dont respect that. But it aint like they can keep that shit secret forever. So I respect Frank for doin what he did. I aint gonna buy his album, but I respect the kid.

      A thirteen year old girl doesn't know what love is, she doesn't even know herself. She isn't even fully developed into the person she will be. Why would a 52 year old man even be physically attracted too a 13 year old without having something wrong in his head? that was probably the most non logical argument I have ever heard.

An artist doesn't owe their fans shit regarding their sexuality. However comfortable they are with addressing, that's as far as the fans need to know or care about it. And when has a gay artist EVER come out as straight? Quit making up ridiculous, unsubstantiated counter-arguments and call this shit what it really is, homophobia.
