Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance during Frank Ocean‘s FYF Fest set in Los Angeles Saturday, with the actor delivering a piece of performance art while Ocean sang his “Close to You” and a cover of the Jackson 5 classic “Never Can Say Goodbye.”
For the performance, Brad Pitt stood by the side of the stage with his back to Ocean, his ear to a cellphone as if the singer was communicating through the device; occasionally, Pitt would mock-talk into the cellphone, with Ocean and Pitt both projected onto FYF Fest’s video screens.
“I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean,” Pitt said of his post-divorce listening habits. “I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one.”
