When 24-year-old Odd Future member Frank Ocean admitted on Tumblr last week to falling in love with a man, it was quite the shock to the hip-hop world, notorious for its tendency to disparage gays.

Nonetheless, Ocean's bandmate Tyler, the Creator tweeted a classy congrats, and Def Jam's Russell Simmons said Ocean "changed the game" for hip hop in a positive way.

Now, industry royalty Beyoncé and Jay-Z have joined the ranks of Ocean's supporters.

Beyoncé, whose track "I Miss You" was written by Ocean, posted a pic of Ocean to her site over the weekend. The overlay reads:

Be fearless / Be honest / Be generous / Be brave / Be poetic / Be open / Be free / Be yourself / Be in love / Be happy / Be inspiration.

Beyoncé's show of support was one-upped only by hubby Jay-Z -- a powerful missive to Ocean (penned by dream hampton) on his site is more than worth a full read, but here's the money excerpt:

We admire the great courage and beauty and fearlessness in your coming out, not only as a bisexual Black man, but as a broken hearted one. The tender irony that your letter is to a boy who was unable to return your love until years later because he was living a lie is the only truly tragic detail about your letter.

Today is apparently National Puppy Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a feel-good puppy story?

Beyonce the teeny tiny two-week-old puppy was named after the pop singer because, just like her namesake, she too is a survivor.

Born not breathing, Beyonce had to be resuscitated through CPR. Cheating death is apparently a trait Beyonce inherited from her mom, a stray who was almost euthanized.

As if that weren't enough amazing to last the rest of National Puppy Day, the litter Beyonce was born into was almost aborted.

After all that I think I'm going to need a few dozen more National Puppy Days to calm my nerves. Any objections? Didn't think so.
