    I was excited to hear an R&B artist was brave enough to come out of the closet. Love is universal and I can easily flip the words to Adele's songs to fit my own experiences but it would be nice to hear love songs written through the eyes of a gay singer.

    Trending Article:

    "I think it's definitely important and it really signifies that there is a changing of the face of hip-hop," said Chuck Creekmur, founder of the leading website He called Ocean's announcement "a sign of the times," noting Cooper's announcement and President Barack Obama's recent support of gay marriage.

    Frank Ocean wrote: "4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide."

    Ocean concludes the post: "I don't have any secrets I need to keep anymore. ... I feel like a free man. If I listen closely. I can hear the sky falling too."

    I think it's a big step, especially in the hyper macho Hip-Hop industry. Maybe this will encourage some more artists to come out - or even start their careers being out.

    He sounds pretty good from what I've heard from him so far.
