Jillian M

Jillian Mapes (@jumonsmapes) is an editor and web producer at Billboard.com, a job that has increased her familiarity with Katy Perry's boobs by 200 percent. Her past lives include newspaper reporting (on the features desk at the Indianapolis Star), booking tours for garage rock bands, and freelance music writing (Billboard, Paste, AOL Music, Under the Radar, Metromix). A Youngstown, Ohio native (yes, just like the Springsteen song), Mapes graduated from Ohio University before trading small-town livin' for the flashy lights of Brooklyn. She is forever working on a book about Weezer, and yes, that is a photo of her with Shirley Manson of Garbage.
