Obviously now that Frank Ocean has released not one, but two albums, fans want to get their hands on any limited-edition merch associated with Endless and Blond, even if it means paying an insane amount of money for copies of the singer’s Boys Don’t Cry magazines, several of which are listed on eBay at sky-high prices.
Ocean only gave out a limited number of free copies of the magazine, so we can see how some fans would be tempted to buy their own. But when Ocean’s mom tells you to put the pause on your purchasing plans, you might want to listen.
On Sunday, Katonya Breaux Riley kept it all the way real when she tweeted fans, advising them against dropping hella coins on the mag, MTV reports. “Don’t Pay those ridiculous prices for the mags on eBay. Just hang tight a sec..,” she tweeted.
And just in case you’re wondering, Ocean’s brother Ryan agrees:
Hmm…so is Riley suggesting there will be more free Boys Don’t Cry ‘zines coming soon? That’s definitely wishful thinking on our part, but even if you’re a super rich kid with loose ends, you might want to heed the warning and don’t buy the mags.
