In an interview with MTV News, Jamie Foxx was nothing but supportive of Frank Ocean.

The multi-talented entertainer and Oscar winner said about Ocean’s recent revelation about his romantic life:

“Elton John did it. For Frank Ocean to do it and be hip-hop and black, he’s breaking ground, and kudos to him. At the end of the day, his music is for everybody. Now when I put his music on, I am trying to get at the ladies. Frank, you helping me out. You done left more for me, Frank.”

On how he discovered Frank Ocean:

“My sister hipped me to Frank Ocean, and I was just like, ‘Who is this dude?’ “

As for how Ocean’s candidness may inspire others:

“When I heard that he came out, I thought, ‘Courageous, hooray for him,’ ” Foxx continued. “It’s just the beginning. I have several friends who live in darkness and live in fear, and it’s just time.”
