Frank Ocean appeared at President Obama’s last State Dinner on Oct. 18, and C-Span was fortunate enough to talk to the Blonde musician on camera. This just so happens to be the first time in nearly four years that Ocean was interviewed on camera.
Reporters asked the elusive singer about the Vans sneakers he paired with his outfit, and also what he was looking forward to while in attendance. His answer?
“Asking Obama if he had fun these last eight years,” he told the cameras. “…And congratulate him, too.”
He was also asked a question about if he was supporting Hillary Clinton, and if he would do a concert to show his support. He said, “probably not,” and then concluded.
“We’re running out of time, I think. Might have to catch you in four years,” he stated before leaving.
Parting is such sweet sorrow. Until we speak again, Frank.
Check out his very brief interview below.
