NEW YORK (AP) - 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 (mah-LAH'-lah YOO'-suf-ZAY') 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.
