Beyoncé dedicated some beautiful thoughts to Frank Ocean.
We’re huge Frank Ocean fans around these parts. Though we didn’t think it possible, we became even bigger stans of the R&B singer/songwriter after he was brave enough to publicly reveal personal details about his sexuality. (In case you just got the internet, last week, Frank Ocean posted an open letter on his Tumblr, where he divulged that his first love was a man. Since his candid blog post, which may be changing the face of hip-hop, Frank Ocean has received an outpouring of support from friends like Tyler, The Creator, Russell Simmons, fans, family and ummmm Beyoncé.
Beyoncé and Frank Ocean developed a friendship when they worked together on her song “I Miss You.” To show support for her collaborator, the ever-elegant Beyoncé wrote some simple yet stirringly beautiful words of wisdom and dedicated them to Frank; Beyoncé took to her took to her website, and over a black-and-white image of Frank Ocean she wrote the words: “Be fearless. Be honest. Be generous. Be brave. Be poetic. Be open. Be free. Be yourself. Be in love. Be happy. Be inspiration.” Amazing words from an amazing woman dedicated to an amazing man.
Don’t forget to pick up Frank’s forthcoming LP, Channel Orange, when it drops on July 17.
