Mtvuhonor­socean, Pak­istani girl

Austin American-Statesman - - LIFE & ARTS - Malala Yousufzai

NEW YORK — The mtvU net­work is hon­or­ing a rap su­per­star who de­tailed his love for an­other man and a Pak­istani girl shot for her ed­u­ca­tion ad­vo­cacy as its Man and Woman of the Year.

Frank Ocean, who earned six Grammy nominations Wed­nes­day, pub­lished a let­ter on­line about his first love, a man, just as his “chan­nel OR­ANGE” disc was be­ing re­leased. MtvU on Thurs­day called it “an in­cred­i­bly brave move for an artist on the verge of su­per­star­dom.”

Fif­teen-year-old Malala Yousufzai blogged about her sup­port of ed­u­ca­tion for girls in Pak­istan. For that, Tal­iban mil­i­tants stormed her school bus and shot her in the head and neck, but she sur­vived.

The mtvU net­work is geared to­ward col­lege stu­dents and is seen on more than 750 cam­puses.
