“hi guys, i smoke pot. ok guys, bye.”
— Frank Ocean in an insouciant tweet Thursday night, three days after he was cited for speeding and possessing marijuana in California’s Sierra Nevada. The Mono County Sheriff’s Department told AP they caught the 25-year-old R&B singer-of-the-moment New Year’s Eve in his BMW going 90 in a 65 and found a small bag of weed as well. Since they’d stopped him doing the same speed a day earlier, they took his license this time. Strangely, for all the star’s Twitter candor, his actual publicist declined comment.
