Grammy-winning artist Beyonce Knowles-Carter has shown support for fellow R&B singer Frank Ocean in light of his recent bi-sexuality announcement.
Bey took to her website to display support for the Odd Future affiliate.
Now his collaborator Beyoncé has taken to her website to salute the "Novacane" singer for his brave announcement. In one of her "Bey Inspired" entries, the pop superstar shared words of encouragement over a black-and-white photo of the 24-year-old Ocean, who penned her ballad "I Miss You." (Rap-Up)
Her sister, Solange, also took to the Internet to co-sign Ocean's move earlier this week.

Recently, the male music star revealed his in-studio connection with Beyonce.
Soon Mr. Ocean was wanted on his own terms. He contributed two hooks to "Watch the Throne"(Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam/Roc Nation), last year's collaborative album by Jay-Z and Kanye West, and was invited to work with Beyoncé in the studio for a week, resulting in "I Miss You," which appeared on her latest album, "4" (Columbia). "She came in and heard the song, and she shed a tear and recorded it," he recalled, "and I wanted to shed a tear." (New York Times)
Ocean's mother has also reportedly stood up for her 24 year-old son.
""My son is brave and honest and I am very proud of him. I wish more people in the world could be brave enough to be who they really are. Thank you to all who have shown love and support. My son is the most incredible human I know. Honest, true and loving. We appreciate you!" -@Katonya" (Miss Info TV)
