Frank Ocean Swears Off Drinking And Drugs

Frank Ocean Drink Drugs

Frank Ocean is an enigma. A beautiful enigma.

Not only has he recently come out publicly, he did it in the face of the hip-hop and R&B arena that doesn't really take kindly to that kind of lifestyle.

He's a part of OddFuture, which is arguably one of the most shocking rap collectives out there — who rap about drinking, drugs, sexual assault and also drop the word "fag" more often than not.

Regardless of all this stuff, though, Frank has not only just come out as at least bisexual, but he has also sworn off drinking and drugs!

So why did he do this?

Apparently he was scared off that stuff as a child after accompanying his grandfather to support meetings for recovering addicts.

His grandpa struggled with alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine issues while he was a kid, but got clean by attending 12-step meetings for addicts to mentor them.

The stories Frank had heard at those meetings were enough to make him wary on any kind of life like that.

He said:

"It totally ingrained this fear of addiction and of anything that could cause me to be addicted."

Interestingly enough, his mixtape does contain drug references — so we're kinda surprised to hear all this!

We're glad though: drugs don't enhance lives, they ruin them.

Frank, we're incredibly moved by what we've heard from you in the past few weeks. We're also very excited to hear your new album!
