The 'Countdown' singer shares a poem about the 'Channel Orange' rapper on Tumblr.

Beyonce has praised Frank Ocean as "fearless" and "open" after he revealed that his first love was a man.

The rapper unveiled details about his sexuality in a message on his Tumblr account last week.

"4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too," he said.

"We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide."

Taking to her own Tumblr, Bey posted a huge picture of Frank, which included a number of positive adjectives about the star's decision to speak out.

The poem read: "Be fearless/ Be honest/ Be generous/ Be brave/ Be poetic/ Be open/ Be free/ Be yourself/ Be in love/ Be happy/ Be inspiration."
