You'll Never Guess How Tyler, the Creator Knew Frank Ocean Was 'Gay'

(Getty Images)When Frank Ocean told the world that much of his debut album channel ORANGE was inspired by his first love, a man, there was at least one person in his camp who wasn't surprised: Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator.

In a recent conversation with Rolling Stone (via Complex), Tyler responds to a question about when he knew Frank was "gay" with, "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 ni**a."

Those who listen to Tyler's music might think he'd have some issues with Frank's sexuality, given his prolific use of the OTHER f-word, but he insists it's just a word to him. "He knows me, and he knows I don't care about being gay. It's just another word to me. The same as "ni**a." Let's say Frank started using the word "fag," just jokingly. People would be so f**king confused! They wouldn't know what to do. And it could take the power out of that word."
