Beyoncé Expresses Support for Frank Ocean, Pens Ode to Hip Hop Star

by at . Comments

Beyoncé is firmly on Team Frank Ocean.

A week after this R&B singer/songwriter publicly shared a homosexual experience from four years ago, Jay-Z's prettier half has penned a poem on her blog in honor of Ocean.

"Be fearless, be honest, be generous," the ode reads. "Be brave, be poetic, be open, be free, be yourself, be in love, be happy, be inspiration."

Ocean's latest album, "Channel Orange," debuted on iTunes last night in advance of its July 17 hard-copy release, while the artist made it clear over Twitter that he has no regrets over telling his story.

"I don't have any [secrets] I need kept anymore," he wrote. "To my first love, I'm grateful for you."

Multiple other stars, such as Russell Simmons, have also come out in support of Ocean, though some rapper named Lil Scrappy made headlines last week for all the wrong reasons, thanking Ocean for coming out because he believes homosexuality is the "doorway to AIDS."
