    :rofl::rofl: No thanks! What's with his mouth? Is he trying to have a sense of humour? That turtleneck is, of course, hideous, but there's probably some mystical ironic meaning behind it. Quite surprised to see him on such a mainstream cover considering he's so staunchly anti-establishment, gender-conforming blah blah blah.
    Anyway, should've been Dev on the cover, who's growing on me each time I see pics of him. That would make me sit up.

    This will be a hit for them though. Cannot to this day understand why it is that gays of every creed go weak at the knees at the mere mention of his name. Frank Ocean and Timothee Chalamet.

    I don't give a damn about this ugly publication-cover-editorial.

    He's just... so f#cking hot.

    I like the cover. It's cool. The cover star is random but okay. I love the minimal titles and texts and that font! I always admire Alasdair's photography and this one is not a miss.

    Frank Ocean? I haven't seen him and a while and surprised to see him here.

    The styling is awful, this green thing that his wearing is atrocious. I know that is a mainstream publication, but I would expect something more '''''conceptual''''' coming from him, if you know what I mean, its a bit disappointing. Its a no for me.

    This is just bland as OUT Magazine. Change the logo and I won’t be surprised

    The cover is as boring and bland as they come but his little smile looks cute. I love his two albums and Blood Orange. I look forward to reading his interview and Dev's.

    I know, right? That look in the cover makes me go weak at the knees.

    I never knew Frank was such an insufferable figure, he's always been quite elusive to me. As much as you can be nowadays. He's a welcomed sight.

    Lol, when making your Instagram profile public becomes a talking point.

    I've not clicked on the link yet, but that headline read like it was cooked up by a Glamour staffer. Well, it's US GQ which is the male equivalent of Glamour, so it makes sense.

    I have no problem with Frank on the cover, but, he looks sooo uncomfortable.
    Like he'd wish to be anywhere else but in that studio.
    Really underwhelming.

    He is cute but i’m trying to understand the styling here...
    He could have looked great in that Prada new collection...
    I mean, I expected some type of fashion.

    Agreed. Bad look.
    It won't sell.

    When people say he's hot, I just scratch my head.
    He's the text book example that fame makes you hot.
    He looks like every other basic looking black man in America.
    The kind you see on the way to work every morning.
    As far as this cover goes, he has a cute smile, but that green turtleneck he's wearing, should have been tossed into a dumpster after the shoot.

    The new GQ doesn't look promising.
