Frank Ocean on What He Wants to Do Outside Music
Frank Ocean is a beast in the songwriting department, but will R&B’s brightest new crooner soon become a New York Times Best-Selling author?
Check out this excerpt from his latest interview with The Guardian to see what we mean:
“I don’t intend to stop making music. This isn’t a faux retirement. It’s no bullshit. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think – it would be fucking legendary if I just made Channel Orange last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014! I don’t know! You just do what you can and you have as much fun as possible, and love your life as much as you can despite the bullshit and all the expectations and shit. You just do what the fuck you wanna do at the end of the day, and don’t give a fuck. As long as your intentions are solid, and about growth and progression and being productive and not being idle, then you’re doing good in my book.”
So, what do you guys think the plot of this potential masterpiece could be? Forbidden love? Science fiction? A world where everything is orange? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
