■ Not only did James Franco’s new band Daddy drop a song titled “You Are Mine” this week (see below), but the famed actor rocks a Lana Del Rey tattoo on the cover of his upcoming book of poetry. It’s titled ‘Straight James / Gay James’ and “explores the facets of his public and private personas.”
Straight James / Gay James is a poetic bildungsroman–raw, candid, and uninhibited. James Franco writes about life as an actor, sexuality, questions of identity, gender, family, Gucci, Lana Del Rey, James Dean, and Hollywood. His poetic style varies from the imagistic to the prosaic. The chapbook also contains an interview of “Gay James” conducted by “Straight James.” Yes, Straight James asks the question: Let’s get substantial: are you gay or what?
We’re definitely pre-ordering this.
