Beyoncé has joined Russell Simmons, Jay-Z and Trina as the latest celebrity to show public support of R&B singer Frank Ocean. The singer shocked the world when he came of the closet and revealed that his first love was a man on his Tumblr page last week.
Beyoncé showed her support by posting a photo of the singer on her website. Over the black-and-white flick she wrote, “Be fearless/ Be honest/ Be generous/ Be brave/ Be poetic/ Be open/ Be free/ Be yourself/ Be in love/ Be happy/ Be inspiration.”
Ocean has had a working relationship Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z. He wrote “I Miss You” from Beyoncé’s 4 album and collaborated on two tracks Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne, according to MTV.
In an interview with PrideSource last year, Beyoncé said that not worrying about satisfying other people is like the ultimate dream. “The amount of confidence and fearlessness it takes to do what maybe is not what your parents expect you to do or what society may think is different — to be brave and be different and to be yourself — is just so beautiful,” she said.
