How odd. A gay love song about Forrest Gump? Not sure I get it, but I support the fuck out of it. I think it’s important to keep championing Frank after his epic coming out, even though he seems to be doing just fine. His major label debut Channel Orange is projected to sell between 110,000 and 125,000 copies in its first week, based on digital downloads alone. That would put him in the number-two spot on the Billboard charts. And the big backlash that was expected from the hip-hop community never came to pass, which is cause for hope. But Target has banned the album, citing its early iTunes release as the reason, even though WE ALL KNOW Target gives money to anti-gay groups so hmmmmm. He’s not out of the woods yet. He still needs our support. We need to keep being positive, keep talking about him, and buy that album!
