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.
