Early last week singer Frank Ocean made headlines when he bravely announced that he is bi-sexual. Less than a week after that announcement retail store Target decided that they will not be selling Ocean’s debut studio album, ‘Channel ORANGE‘. The singer confirmed via a tweet to fans that the album won’t be sold at Target.
His manager says the store refuses to sell the album because of Frank’s sexuality…”Target has refused to carry Frank’s album because of iTunes exclusive,” the singer’s manager, Christian Clancy, wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “Interesting since they also donate to non-equal rights organizations.”
However, Target execs say that’s not the reason. They claim Channel Orange is not being sold in Target stores because Def Jam made the album available early via iTunes.
Nonetheless, Frank confirmed via a tweet to fans that the album won’t be sold at Target… “Album won’t be available at target,” he tweeted. “Blame it on a generational gap. best buy on deck though.” (BMS)
Do you think this is because of his sexuality or just a generation gap?
