Breaking: Young Franco confirms name change to “20-Something Franco”


B-Side is our latest news section breaking the stories you won’t read about anywhere else. Hard hitting news f the back a truck that we published without fact checking.

Big news to start the week, with Brisbane born artist Young Franco speaking exclusively with B-Side announcing plans for a major rebranding.

Franco, born Joseph Da Rin, has expressed concern that the monicker ‘Young Franco’ is misleading given the fact he is now in his mid-twenties. “I guess I knew this day would come” he told us. “I didn’t think it would be so hard to make the change. I’ve really grown quite fond the name. Plus I still think I look like James Franco”.

Da Rin tells us he has settled on the name 20-Something Franco moving forward, however he also considered the following options:

  • Quarter-Life Franco
  • The Artist Formerly Known As Young Franco
  • Slightly Older Than Before Franco
  • Just Franco

The change is expected to become finalised within a matter weeks or even days, with Franco confirming that “I’m not getting any younger, so I better chop to it.”
