GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, is honoring Jay Z at their 29th annual awards ceremony! The rapper, who’s leading the pack with 8 Grammy Awards nominations, is set to receive a Special Recognition honor for his song “Smile,” which details his mother Gloria Carter’s coming-out story from her son’s perspective.
“Mama had four kids but she’s a lesbian/Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian,” Hov raps on the #444 track. “I cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Doesn’t matter to me if it’s him or her.” The song also includes an original poem by Ms. Carter
