You might not have known his name before, but by now you’ll all be familiar with Frank Ocean – the singer and rapper with hip hop collective Odd Future who recently ‘came out’.
Frank, who has written songs for Justin Bieber, opened up about his sexuality in a long blog post last week – sending positive shockwaves through the music world.
And Frank’s admission was so ground-breaking and courageous that none other than Beyonce herself was moved to write a poem about it. And here is that poem (warning, it’s not one of the ones that rhymes):
“Be fearless, be honest, be generous, be brave, be poetic, be open, be free, be yourself, be in love, be happy, be inspiration”.
Admittedly it’s not the best poem we’ve ever read. It’s more of a list. But it’s a good first effort from, erm, Be. We’d have gone for a limerick ourselves. Or a haiku.
