Frank Ocean Celebrates His Birthday in Drag-Ball Party with Tyler the Creator and More

at12:13 pm | By


Frank Ocean is a man who has made himself into a sort of mysterious R&B hermit who occasionally comes down from the mountaintop with two new albums and a carpentry lesson, but even he needs to go HAM for his 30th birthday. So, that’s exactly what he did.

The Blonde crooner threw a Paris Is Burning-style drag ball for the big 3-0 and brought along famous friends like SZA and his Odd Future compatriot Tyler, the Creator. Reportedly, Frank’s fabulous ball also included stop-ins from Brad Pitt and Adele. Looking at the pictures, we can’t blame them for wanting to get involved.

Everything about this party, from the enthusiastic MCs to the flaming Eiffel Tower centerpiece, looks amazing. Plus, Frank’s bedazzled outfit is worth the price of admission.

Where before Tyler’s participation in the ball might have been met with a bit of side-eye by people who considered him homophobic, recent revelations on Flower Boy have cast his entire discography in a different light. And, of course, there’s the fact that Tyler is going to be all in for just about anything his friend Frank does.
