Beyonce is super stoked for newly out R&B singer Frank Ocean, and to show her support, she did what only Bey-Bey could: She posted a poem for Ocean on her website. The rather repetitive verse encourages Ocean to be himself and be an inspiration. Would we expect anything less from Beyonce, really?
After the jump, seven more soulful celebrity poets (including Charlie Sheen — yes, really).
Several of the stars of “Gossip Girl” have openly admitted that they’re kind of phoning it in at this point (see also Penn Badgely on Dan Humphrey: “It’s a gentle release with him.”), which is probably why Ed Westwick’s taking up other interests — like modeling. Westwick’s been a spokesperson for K-Swiss and Filipino line Penshoppe, and he’s now the face of designer Philipp Plein, which is why you can catch him in Plein’s latest runway show and in the designer’s latest series of ads.

But alas, the “Gossip Girl” bad boy “walked into the duty-free shop and bought a bottle of vodka.” Swoon.
