The Mickey Boardman Rap
Mickey Boardman was an obvious choice for my newest rap. After meeting him in Savannah, Georgia in May (see Joe Zee rap), it was easy to see how much of an icon he is in the fashion industry. As the editorial director of Paper magazine, in my eyes, he is really the face of the “Paper brand.” Mickey is honestly one of the nicest, most responsive editors I have ever met.
My story goes a bit like this: I was still frazzled from meeting Joe Zee that day when I saw Mickey across the street. I was hesitant to speak to him, for I was extremely nervous, but I decided I would regret missing the opportunity. I introduced myself, and he introduced me to Lauren Sherman (a Lucky editor now, then at Fashionista.com) and Danica Lo (a Glamour editor now, then at Racked.com). Needless to say, I was floored. I automatically burst into tears (yes, again) because I was so excited to be speaking to three editors that I have followed for the longest time. We talked for a few minutes while I struggled to catch my breath, and they ended up giving me their business cards.
2 months later, I was visiting my friend Caroline in NYC, and we all ended up having lunch together! Believe me, my mind is still recovering.
Mickey is truly a talented editor, and therefore totally rap worthy. I hope you like it!
