Brad Pitt Praises Frank Ocean & R&B Music

Published: Friday 5th May 2017 by David

Frank Ocean has found a fan and potential friend in Brad Pitt.

Rocking this month’s edition of GQ, the actor- who is divorcing his wife Angelina Jolie– set out to share his newfound admiration for Ocean and R&B music.

When asked on his time playing characters in pain, he shared:

Yeah, I’m kind of done playing those. I think it was more pain tourism. It was still an avoidance in some way. I’ve never heard anyone laugh bigger than an African mother who’s lost nine family members. What is that? I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it’s a celebration. To me, it’s embracing what’s left. It’s that African woman being able to laugh much more boisterously than I’ve ever been able to.

How he came to this profound conclusion?

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.

Your thoughts?

    Papi all you have to do is slide in my dm’s and we can work on sliding other places. I want to feel your pain, I know Angelina hasn’t felt it in a while.

    Wait until he listens to Mary J. Blige’s second album, a blueprint for R&B. He’ll totally disregard Frank Ocean’s entire existence.

      Lol true. Classic album. That’s when she became Queen. ?

    If you really want music that comes from pain, there are some Rihanna songs I could recommend.

    Oh and if you like Francine Ocean, you’ll love SOLANGE. She has what I consider the best album ever released since the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, but not better than Janet Jackson’s The Velvet Rope.

      Did you just say Rihanna songs you can reference? Y’all kids are terrible these days ?

      If I can slide Songs In A minor between Lauryns album and Solanges chronologically

    Hes hott
    But I’m happy he likes R&b i didnt think he liked that kind of music. I have a feeling he likes rap tho and listens to like jayz nas or migos lol

      I remember that he was a fan of Bob Marley and Jeff Buckley in the 90’s, so he taste in music is quite diverse.

    Wait until he discovers Brandy’s Full Moon album. He will be stalking her.

      That album was garbage, just like the rest of her albums, with exception of NSN.

      One of the things that black gay/women discover when dating white men is that they too have big di***s, and vise versa, white gay/women dating black men discover that they too can have small di***s ? This world is full of surprises and some can be cruel sometimes.

    White people are so weird w/ what they say, but I dont think he means harm here so whatever. Distrubing, though, if his first taste of R&B is Frankie.. He’s 20 yrs too late, R&B is a desert town now.

      Very disturbing… the constant “African” reference. I get it but sometimes they act soo uninformed in terms to the American Black community.

    Feel like I’m missing some of the context here, because what was quoted from the article makes him sound strange af. Taking about “the pain of the African mother” when asked about the roles he play in movies?
