Is She Giving Beyonce A Run For Her Money? A Slim Looking Raven Symone Cover Heed Magazine’s Summer 2012 Issue

I haven’t heard much from Raven Symone lately nor did I see any recent pictures of her but on the cover of HEED Magazine’s Summer 2012 issue, this former The Cosby Show and That’s So Raven star is looking very slim in a fitted black dress. Is she giving Beyoncé a run for her money? In my opinion, Raven is a sweet and beautiful young woman with a bright nice smile. Inside, the 26-year-old actress and singer offers readers a glimpse at the behind the scenes of her starring role in Sister Act 2 on Broadway as well as her new position as a spokesperson for Merck’s, ‘Plan It Forward’ campaign. This issue hits newsstands on next Tuesday (July 10).

Odd Future’s Singer Comes Out Of The Closet & Confirms He’s Gay: Frank Ocean Says He Was In Love With A Man In A Heartfelt Letter He Wrote

This past Monday (July 2), I reported that Odd Future’s singer and songwriter Frank Ocean opened up about his bisexuality on his new album, entitled Channel Orange. Some people were confused and wondering if it was true or not. Well, indeed it is 100% true. In a recent heartfelt and powerful letter to his fans which Ocean posted on his Tumblr, he confirms that he is gay and was in love with a man when he was 19-year-old. In this letter, Ocean also recounted the time he spent with this man. Read Ocean’s letter in its entirety below:

Whoever you are. Wherever you are… I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3 I’ve screamed at my creator, screamed at clouds in the sky, for some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence…until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager. The ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasn’t in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima, the same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for then. Knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I’d only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn’t on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be find and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn’t always successful.
