Wintour, once notoriously chic and ahead of the curve in all things fashion and place, admitted that she had been suffering from a bout of amnesia induced by the delirium of her anorexia, resulting in her sullying the September issue (of all the issues to sully!) with the mention of Bushwick. Wintour released a statement through her publicist (as she would never speak directly to anyone, least of all The Burning Bush) in which she publicly apologized, “I have been reckless with my behavior, especially with regard to my sudden presumed zeal for [gagging] Bushwick. At the time of creating the list for the Coolest Neighborhoods in the World, I was not aware of who I was.”
Now that Wintour is back to normal thanks to an emergency food pellet, she has retracted Bushwick at number seven on the list and replaced it with the Monti neighborhood in Rome. Phew. That was close. For a second we thought we might have to pay out the asshole in rent to remain cool.
