As if garnering six Grammy nods wasn’t enough of an achievement, Frank Ocean has just added another nomination to his roster. The R&B singer is up for a prize at the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards, which recognize “outstanding images of the LGBT community” across all forms of media, including music and film.
After opening up about a prior relationship with a man in a heartfelt letter in July and later chronicling that relationship on his Grammy-nominated album Channel Orange, Ocean is now up for Outstanding Music Artist. He’ll go up against the Scissor Sisters (Magic Hour), Rufus Wainwright (Out of the Game), Gossip (A Joyful Noise) and Adam Lambert (Trespassing). SEE VIDEO HERE
