The Eluvsive Chanteuse, Frank Ocean gives a rare interview where he talks about being a judge on Ru Paul's Drag Race, dating apps and protecting himself as an artist.
-When asked if he watches Ru Paul's Drag Race:
"I’ll say this: Of all the talent shows on TV, that would be the most likely."
-On using dating apps:
"I don’t use dating apps. I’ve been in a relationship for three years. I definitely wasn’t using dating apps before then. I don’t think I would use dating apps now. I fuck with Marc Jacobs’ philosophy on that, so I wouldn’t rule it out, but it is a little hectic being a famous person on dating apps."
On being reclusive:
"I always thought that was a misconception. I think the whole idea of me as a recluse is absurd ’cause I’m in the streets like all the time. I’m outside all the time, I’m traveling the world all the time. It’s funny to me that that’s the perception, but I understand what people mean by it in this new paradigm."
Speaking about his admiration for queer art:
"My interest in queer art began at home in New Orleans. Listening to Katey Red and Big Freedia at parties as a youth. It continued to grow as I got into photogragphy, from the photographs I see a lot of in magazines, like Alasdair [McLellan] and Collier to the other heads like Wolfgang [Tillmans], Walter Pfeiffer and Peter."
