50 Cent On Frank Ocean's Sexuality: "Anyone That Has An Issue Is An Idiot"

The rapper speaks out after the 'Channel Orange' star reveals his first love was a man.

50 Cent has defended Frank Ocean after he revealed that his first love was a man.

The Odd Future singer made the revelation ahead of the release of his new album 'Channel Orange'.

Last week, Adele and Beyonce said Ocean had been "brave" by making the admission – a sentiment now echoed by the 'Candy Shop' rapper.

"Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot," 50 Cent told MTV.

"I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he's created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like 'Novacane'."

Frank Ocean's decision to speak about his sexuality has been praised by his musical peers:



"It could be revolutionary or it could be a tragedy," he continued. "You can call it brave or you can call it marketing, because it was intentional; it wasn't an accident."

50 added that an artist's sexuality was no longer a taboo.

"Obama is for same-sex marriage," the rapper said. "If the president is saying that, then who am I to go the other way?"

'Channel Orange' is out now.
