Frank Ocean is hands down the queer icon of our generation, and generations to come. You know, an actual member of the LGBT community, which is reflected in his lyrics. Not some straight chick with a gay brother, right Billboard? Well, if you don’t believe me, just take a listen to his easy, breezy bisexual song of the summer, ‘Chanel.’
Last night, while Frank Ocean was headlining the FYF Festival in Los Angeles, a lineup full of great queer performers, he surprised guests with a cinematic visual experience featuring actor Brad Pitt. The entire production was directed by Spike Jonze and the visuals were backed by Ocean singing a cover of the soul classic, ‘Never Can Say Goodbye.’
As it turns out, Brad Pitt is a huge Frank Ocean fan. In a recent interview with GQ, Pitt discussed discovering R&B and his newfound love of Ocean’s music.
“I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one.”
Ah, true love.
Watch as Frank Ocean serenades Brad Pitt to the soulful classic, ‘Never Can Say Goodbye.’
And let’s just say Twitter had a lot of feelings going on afterward.
Frank Ocean trending at #1 simply because he has talent, Brad Pitt’s support, and because he is a fluid king who does what he wants. 🐐🤴🏽🙌🏽⭐️
