Frank Ocean’s Viral New Look Sparks Twitter Debate Among Fans
Twitter users are turning on an apparently edited viral photo of Frank Ocean sporting a new hairstyle – and now they’re wondering if it was a hoax.
Tuesday, a Frank Ocean Twitter fan account @blondhomer posted a photo of the “Novacane” singer sporting shoulder-length locs and a full beard.
The notoriously reclusive musician had allegedly shared the photo with his “close friends” on Instagram, multiple outlets reported.
Fans quickly began to speculate that Ocean’s new look could portend the arrival of their highly anticipated fourth album or a new tour announcement.
The Grammy Award winner released his last studio album, the acclaimed ‘Blonde,’ in 2016, and he’s been keeping fans hooked for new music ever since.
last september, Twitter users speculated about a musical release from Ocean after noticing he had quietly deleted all of his Instagram posts, but nothing materialized at that time.
However, the photo may not mean what some hopeful fans think.
Some eagle-eyed Twitter users were quick to point out that the viral photo appears to have been edited.
Since Ocean was last spotted with a low hairstyle last year, one Twitter user joked that he must have “superhuman hair growth speed”. Notably, growing locs to the length of those in this photo can take between 18 and 24 months.
Other fans couldn’t help but joke about the photo, comparing the singer-songwriter’s look to Jesus.
On the other hand, some fans gushed over the photo.
In August, the “Channel Orange” singer went viral after his luxury company, Homer, unveiled a new encrusted diamond, 18 carat gold cock ring with an NSFW photo on Instagram.
Just two months earlier, it was reported that Ocean was preparing to write and direct his own feature film in collaboration with entertainment company A24.
The film, tentatively titled ‘Philly’, could potentially begin filming this fall, according to DiscussMovie.
