Remnick vs. Wintour: The Jay-Z Factor

More gossip from last night’s ASME awards, courtesy of WWD. David Remnick inducts Anna Wintour into the magazine editors hall of fame:

Remnick, who prefaced his remarks by admitting his own style is based on “what doesn’t itch,” spoke about the “real” Wintour–Anna the artistic collaborator, the seeker and nurturer of talent and as an editor who is “extraordinarily generous” with her time. He also pointed out that Wintour had been name-dropped by Jay-Z, in “Empire State of Mind” (“Now you’re in style, Anna Wintour gets cold, in Vogue with your skin out”), an honor Remnick has yet to receive. (However, there is some disagreement on the Web about the Wintour line in the song, with some maintaining the lyric is actually “in the winter gets cold, en vogue with your skin out.”)
