Emily Gould: And The Heart Says… Quite A Lot About Nick Denton, Actually

gould_5.28.10.jpgEmily Gould has been Emily Goulding around as of late, penning a memoir called And The Heart Says Whatever, about being a twenty-something who blogs in New York and dates horrible people and makes crappy mistakes and has some tattoos, which seems quite like what a book about the most interesting person in the world ever might be about.

While promoting her book in Washington DC, Gould shared some also-interesting insights about her former boss, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton:

It’s a hard job and you’re working for a crazy person. [...] I mean, it’s just so incredibly obvious to me what a lunatic [he is]. It’s like, not a cute look for a 40-something-year-old man.

Yeah! Good thing none of us will never be forty-somethings, or else comments like those made in our youth might come back to haunt us.
