Drake was booed off the stage by fans who expected to see Frank Ocean perform at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw 2019 music festival in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The 33-year-old Canadian rapper was shocked by the negative reaction as he made a surprise appearance during a headline set shared with rappers Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky, pictured right with Tyler.

According to WENN.com, it had been rumored that rapper Frank Ocean, 32, was scheduled to perform during the evening, so when the "God's Plan" rapper stepped onstage, he was met with a chorus of boos from the crowd.

Cell phone video uploaded to YouTube by YeeterzTV shows Drake attempting to perform despite the booing at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.

Drake tried using a little psychology, telling the audience: "I'm here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going." But it didn't work, as the concertgoers replied "Nooooo!"

Embarrassed and humiliated, Drake cut his set short by 20 minutes, telling the crowd: "It's been love. I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake. thank you for having me."

Following his quick exit, many concertgoers took to Twitter to share the news. According to one Twitter user, fans at the festival were expecting to see performances by openly homosexual rappers, such as Tyler, 28, and Frank Ocean (pictured left), but they got the closeted rapper Drake instead.

"Fans at camp flog gnaw were expecting that Frank ocean was gonna be the surprise guest headliner... they got drake instead.. safe to say... they rather Frank ocean."

But others insisted Ocean had never been confirmed to perform at the festival, and they don't know how that rumor got started.

"Tyler, The Creator never said it was Frank Ocean or gave clues about it," one person tweeted. "That's y'all fault for being mad and assuming s**t. It should be whatever that A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert and Drake were the mystery guest for Camp Flog Gnaw."

Singer Frank Ocean has opened his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City after retiring from the music biz. Ocean's music career went the way of the dinosaurs after he came out as homosexual when he left the hip-hop collective Odd Future to go solo.

Now the 31-year-old Scorpio is back on the scene - but not as a hip-hop artist. The "Novacane" singer launched his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City.

Ocean will be throwing his grand opening party on Thursday night called PrEP+ in New York, The Blast reports. The name PrEP+ comes from the prescription drug taken by MSM (men who have sex with men) to prevent the transmission of HIV.

Ocean announced PrEP+ is "an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs."

After everything he's gone through, Ocean says his LGBT+ nightclub will not tolerate hate of any kind. If you are not ghey-friendly, you will not be welcomed at PrEP+.

Lil Nas X used to pray that being homosexual was just a phase he was going through. The one-hit wonder came out as ghey during the peak of his brief career as a chart-topping country rap star.

Nas X came out to fans in a tweet during Pride Month in June. And while he's now proud to be out, Nas told Gayle King in an interview on CBS' This Morning on Tuesday, that he wasn't always so secure in his sexuality.

Telling King he "knew" when he was growing up that he was homosexual, Nas said he tried to pray the ghey away: "Especially during my teenage years, I would just pray, pray and pray," he said. When King asked what he prayed for, he replied: "That it was a phase."

The musician added that he's well aware his celebrity status gave him an advantage when it came to coming out.

"Me being in this position, it's easy for me," he said. "But some little boy 10 miles from here, it's not gonna be good for him."

Nas, who was raised by his single mother and grandmother, says he is hopeful that his coming out story will help other boys going through similar situations. He told King that there's "still a lot to be done."

"We still have a long way to go, because it's not like everybody is messing with me now. 'Cause of course somebody who's listening to me in school right now, it's like, 'You're gay, cause you're listening to him'. There's still a lot to be done, of course. But I do believe it's helping."

The 20-year-old Aries is best known for a remix of his country rap hit "Old Town Road" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. "Old Town Road" made Billboard chart history for the most weeks at No. 1.

But now the appeal of being America's first bonafide country rap star is fading.

The Atlanta native, who was born Montero Lamar Hill, was forced to cancel 2 concerts this week due to poor ticket sales, and he announced he will take a break away from music after performing at the upcoming 94.9 Jingle Ball in San Francisco, which runs from Oct. 7 through Oct. 9.

They say you should never kick a man while he's down. But that's precisely what the gheys are doing now that Kevin Hart is laid up in a hospital with pins stabilizing his fractured spine.

Hart, 40, fractured his back in 3 places during a serious car crash near his Calabasas, Calif. home on Sunday.

Now the comedian is being dragged on social media for daring to question why country singer Lil Nas X was apprehensive about coming out as homosexual.

Kevin and Nas both appeared on Tuesday's episode of HBO's The Shop: Uninterrupted, where the "Old Town Road" one-hit wonder was asked how he felt about publicly coming out.

But before the Atlanta native could answer, Kevin interrupted: "He said he was gay, so what?"

The 20-year-old explained that he was taught to "hate" homosexuality, when growing up, prompting Hart to question: "Hate what? Why?"

"Come on now. If you really from the hood, you know," Nas told Hart. Nas X went on to say he is glad he came out at the peak of his career.

It isn't clear if the comedian was joking or he really didn't know that homosexuals are stigmatized - particularly Black homosexual males.

Social media users are steaming mad that Hart kept interrupting Nas X every time he attempted to explain why he was nervous about coming out.

They took aim at the comedian and questioned why Nas X was forced to appear on the show alongside "homophobic guests".

"Kevin Hart's rage and bitterness about anything to do with gay people is so jarring," Vox writer Jenee Desmond Harris tweeted.

The Daily Beast editor-at-large Goldie Taylor added: "'He said he was gay. So what!' Kevin Hart knows exactly what the 'so what' is here and why a young black boy would closet his sexuality until he believed it was safe."

Others theorized that Hart was trying to be politically correct after he was heavily criticized last year for saying he would beat his son with a doll house if he ever came out as homosexual.

The drama comes days after NY Undercover actor Malik Yoba, 55, confessed he was attracted to male to female transgenders.

Nothing was going right for a suburban Atlanta kid who struggled for years to sign his first record deal. The Gay Agenda had already taken hold in America's black suburbs when former U.S. President Obama made it safe for the last bastion of masculinity in the hood -- rappers and drug dealers -- to flaunt their homosexuality.

Bryshere Y Gray

Sorry ladies. It looks like you just lost another one to Geico.

According to gossip blogger Bimbo Winehouse, this is a post-coital photo of Empire star Bryshere Y. Gray laid up in bed with one of his past lovers. I say "past lovers" because the man in the photo probably leaked the picture to Bimbo after they fell out.

Bryshere plays Hakeem Lyon on the once popular network show that suffered declining ratings in season 2.

2015 BET Awards Arrivals

As you know, most celebrities are narcissists who will do anything for the attention they crave. Celebrities are like 5-year-olds who never grew up. They're good as long as you're lavishing them with praise and telling them how talented and pretty they are. But the moment you give your attention to another kid in the room, they start pouting, sulking and may even throw a tantrum or 2.

Take rapper Nicki Minaj for instance. She has the unfortunate timing to be in a relationship with hip hop's biggest loser: rapper Meek Mill.

gay rappers

A loyal reader emailed this photo to me today. The men in the photo are regional rap artists Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan (don't ask me which one is which). Here's my dilemma: my loyal reader sent this photo to me with no explanation. What does "hubbie" mean in hip hop jargon? I have no idea why any of this should matter to a gossip blogger.

More from Sandrarose.com:

  • More Proof That Hip Hop is a Bad Influence On Our Children
  • Shocker: This Atlanta Rapper is “Passing As Gay” Because “That is the Atlanta Way”
  • 49ers Chris Culliver Apologizes for Anti-Gay Statements
  • Lil Wayne Signs Openly Gay Rapper Fly Young Red
  • Kid Cudi performs at the Coachella Art & Music Festival

    A loyal reader writes: "Did you see the pic of Kid Cudi at coachella in a crop top? I can't believe this.... what's going on?"

    I'm surprised she even asked that question. Isn't it obvious that hip hop has been overwhelmingly gay for decades? It's a good thing that more rappers are coming out of the closet in 2014. Hopefully they will encourage more down low black men to come out of the closet. This will save the lives of thousands of black women who contract the HIV virus from their down low men.

    Kid Cudi performed live at the Coachella Art & Music Festival in Indio, California on Saturday April 12.

    Rihanna at the Clippers game in LA

    Girlfriends Rihanna and Drake sat separately at the LA Clippers vs Oklahoma City Thunder NBA game in LA on Wednesday. The Thunder easily defeated the Clippers by the final score of 107-101 at the Staples Center. Rihanna, who is bisexual, sat courtside with the true Love of her life, bestie Melissa Forde. You only have to study their body language to see how much they mean to each other. Mel has seen many men pass through Rihanna's turnstile. And she will see many more.

    Drake Set to Host 2014 ESPYs

    Emo rapper Aubrey Drake Graham is set to host the 2014 ESPY Awards. The 27-year-old Canadian rapper is known to have an affinity for hard leg professional athletes.
