When Frank Ocean makes a public appearance, it's important, but his recent showing at the MET Gala has people a little confused.
Frank appeared at the event dressed in a black jacket, white shirt, lime green hair, and a baby robot that has got everyone talking. The theme for this year's event was "In America: a Lexicon of Fashion", and this is his take on it.
The reaction to Frank's outfit (specifically, the baby robot), has been divided. Of course, Frank does what he wants, but we're not quite sure what message he's sending here, and neither were his fans.

Frank's explanation of the look hasn't helped much, either, with host Keke Palmer asking him about it. He replied, “Movie magic, America. I love you by the way. I’m starstruck." He also added that the robot was "starstruck" too.
