So this happened, and you just "can't even" because you are literally dying.

The British Royal Family met the royal family of the United States on Monday at the Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers game in New York.

Jay-Z and Beyonce walked over to meet and greet Prince William and Kate Middleton during the 3rd and 4th quarters, while "God Save the Queen" and "Crazy In Love" blasted through the Barclays Center, according to US Weekly.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in the U.S. for a three-day tour, and the epic basketball game meetup followed a brief meeting with President Obama Monday at the White House.

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.
