Frank Ocean opens up for Terry Richardson.
Frank Ocean's been a tad busy as of late. In between bravely revealing personal details about his sexuality, being championed by Beyoncé and releasing his hotly anticipated Channel Orange album one week early, Frank found time to pose for famous photog Terry Richardson. After his candid revelation, Frank's been the subject of a lot of chatter among the hip-hop community, most recently 50 Cent who decreed, "Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot." (FYI, we agree.)

Though Terry's known around these parts for his chillingly naturalistic photos of 30 Second To Mars' Jared Leto, and, more notoriously, for his close relationship with Kate Upton, his Frank Ocean photos were simple, unadorned and classic. Terry even managed to wrangle Frank away from his signature headband, and also got him to smile. But then again, if Beyoncé crafted a poem for us, and we got to collaborate with Andre 3000 in the same month, we'd be grinning 24/7 too.
Frank Ocean's first studio album, Channel Orange, is available in stores today.
