Frank Ocean Tops Grammy Nominations List

On top of his six Grammy nominations,  Frank Ocean has been nominated for a GLAAD media award. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Derfamation announced it’s 24th Annual Media Awards.

Frank Ocean revealed he was homosexual last summer in an open letter on his blog. The letter detailed his love for a man, and “came out” just days before the release of Ocean’s debut album “Channel Orange”. The news has been well received in the hip hop community with the singer receiving full support from his Odd Future crew including Tyler the Creator. Since then, Ocean has been a break out star from releasing his album to working with artists such as Jay Z and Kanye West.

The singer has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Best New Artists and Record of the Year, two of the highest honors of the show. GLAAD has nominated Ocean for Outstanding Music Artist. Joining Ocean in the GLAAD Music category are Adam Lambert, Rufus Wainwright, indie rock band Gossip, and pop group Scissor Sisters.

Other nominees for the GLAAD awards include Oprah Winfrey for her interview with Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka, NBC’s new hit “Smash”, and Fox’s “Glee”. The awards are meant to honor media for outstanding images of the gay and lesbian community. Winners will be announced on March 16 in New York, and April and May in Los Angeles.
