Frank Ocean seems to be opening up to the world a bit more this year (and I love it). Today, the Blonde star covers the new issue of Gayletter, read it here.

Throughout the candid, comfortably flowing conversation, Frank briefly touched on a multitude of things going on in his life, including how he's spending his been time rock climbing. He also shared that he's been busy working on music, spending time between New York and L.A.

Ocean also spoke on a few personal notes, like (not) dating and staying away from dating apps. "I don’t use dating apps," he shared. "I’ve been in a relationship for three years. I definitely wasn’t using dating apps before then. I don’t think I would use dating apps now."

The interview was not without a few subtle flexes, however, like when Frank quickly mentioned that he'd hung out with former president Barack Obama. "I’m, like, running around, and hanging out with the president  —  the old president, not the new president  —  and I am in this super cool, once-in-a-lifetime moment, and it would be good to have some photos."

The anecdote came when Frank was asked what he'd tell himself if he was able to go back in time to before the release of Channel Orange — to which he responded: "I would definitely tell myself to get a camera and shoot a lot more."

But most importantly, Frank made sure to let readers know that he is actually 6'1" and not 5'10" like his Wikipedia page allegedly claims.
