New York Times Calls Frank Ocean 'The Self Made Pop Prince' [PHOTOS]

Frank Ocean is definitely a man on the moves. This weekend he covered New York Times Magazine and surprisingly opens up about his rocky road to success, his new book and his freedom to do whatever he wants.

"I have no delusions about my likability, in every scenario, I know that in order to get things done the way you want them, often times your position will be unpopular.

Frank also lets it be known that he will NOT be transitioning into acting out of fear. “I don’t like the idea of there being somebody who could break me,” he said. “There’s no head of a label right now who could break me.”

The R&B singer is not done just yet he is also writing a book. “I’ve started writing the book,” he said. “You can say that. It’s fiction, and it’s about brothers. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Following the Grammys Ocean will head to Shanghai and record his next album “in remote locations for the next two years.” Ocean is up for six awards at Sunday’s 55th Annual Grammy Awards including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year for channel ORANGE.
