MAGAZINE FAB: Frank Ocean GETS STYLISH For The December 2011 Issue Of “L’UOMO VOGUE”
Frank Ocean, one of the music industry’s breakout talents off 2011, gets super stylish for the December 2011 issue of “L’Uomo Vogue.” In the issue he addresses his fantastic year and writing style. Get the deets inside…..
In the December issue “L’Uomo Vogue” Frank Ocean, a member of the Odd Future collective, dishes on his writing technique and his fabulous career in the industry and what will change once he is president.
On being called an R&B artist:
“I’ll usually cringe at the R&B label. Because it’s like calling it urban…and what the fuck is urban music?”
On working with Kanye and Jay, as well as writing music for Beyoncé:
“Career-wise, this year feels like a montage scene in a movie.”
“My generation just doesn’t have the best taste in leadership. And weak leadership means little to no cohesion. If there’s no cohesion, there’s no real chance for effective protest or politics. Obviously, looking at Occupy Wall Street, there are a few in our bunch who still give a damn enough to rally and shout. This will change once I’m elected President.”
On changing his name from Christopher “Lonny” Breaux to Christopher Frank Ocean:
“It was like a middle finger to my slave name”
