Brad Pitt on Frank Ocean: ‘I find this young man so special’

Brad Pitt is speaking out for first tome since split from Angelina Jolie last year

Brad Pitt is finally opening up for the first time since his split last fall from Angelina Jolie.

The Oscar-winning producer (13 Years a Slave) and staunch LGBTI ally shares that music has been helping to sooth his soul – particularly the music of out performer Frank Ocean.

‘I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean,’ Pitt tells GQ Style in a new cover story.

‘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.’

Pitt has also been listening to Marvin Gaye’s touchstone album about divorce Here, My Dear.

‘I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it’s a celebration,’ he said. ‘To me, it’s embracing what’s left.’

Ocean’s debut studio album Channel Orange was released in July 2012. In 2016, the 29-year-old Ocean released the visual album Endless alongside his second studio album Blonde.
