A List of Possible Interview Questions for Stormy Daniels

Famous porn star to appear at Paper Moon in Southside on Sept. 13.

The most famous porn star in America, Stormy Daniels, is coming to Paper Moon's Southside location on Thursday, Sept. 13.

Outside of porn circles, she is famous for having sex with the president of our country, Donald Trump. It happened in 2006, just after his wife gave birth.

Oh, and she’s famous for receiving a $130,000 payoff for a non-disclosure agreement arranged by Trump’s then lawyer, Michael Cohen. Trump first said in April he had no knowledge of the payoff – then his new attorney Rudy Giulani admitted in May that he did know about it.

Daniels has turned the publicity to her advantage, appearing on “Saturday Night Live” and numerous talk shows. We’re not sure yet if she’ll be available for a phone interview beforehand, but just in case, we’ve started on a few questions.

A List of Possible Questions for Stormy Daniels

1. So what was it like with…. Um, nevermind.

2. Did you know there’s a drink named after you at one of our finest restaurants, l’Opossum?

3. So who are you voting for in November?

4. Is Michael Cohen really as weasely as he seems?

5. What was the best thing you bought with all that hush money?

6. You’ve played roles from Baby Lee Johnson and Amber to Stripper #2 and the Virgin Mary, which one sticks out as the most demanding?

7. Have you ever just kicked back and had a beer with Monica Lewinsky?

8. How would you rate Bob Mueller on a sexy scale from “mouth vomit” to “toe curling”?

9. Do you think America will ever be great again?

10. Seriously, was there any one quirk that 45 did that was just …. Um, nevermind. I need some water. And mouthwash. Stat.

Review: Richmond Jazz Fest at Maymont

“Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”

There were a lot of good, and some spectacular performances at the ninth annual Richmond Jazz Festival before the closing Sunday sets were washed out in a torrential thunderstorm. (According to Festival organizers JMI, discounted tickets for either day of next year’s event will be offered to qualified Sunday ticketholders. Details will be posted at www.richmondjazzfestival.com.)

Saturday was the festival at its sun-bleached best, from the local openers to the over-the-top closing set from George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic.

Standouts randomly sampled in approximately eight miles of traipsing between stages included Charles Owen’s blazing opening set, Rudy Faulkner and F.R.E.N.S. all-star line-up, and the series of great acts at the farthest-out Dominion Stage - notably Evolution of the Groove, Deva Mahal and Butcher Brown.

Stage 3 was, as always, the most jazz-centric with phenomenal pianist Christian Sands, Kenyon Harrold, the very loud avant-garde trio, Harriet Tubman: The Band, and veteran Roy Ayers, whose signature song “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” was perhaps less true of an audience seeking shelter in an air-conditioned tent.

The big Virginia is for Lovers stage held a succession of celebrities: Joss Stone, Gladys Knight, and the O’Jays. All had polished, crowd-pleasing sets, but nothing like the ecstatic, one-of-a-kind weirdness of P-Funk. Seeing Knight was an event, being at the George Clinton stage was a happening.

Sunday started with the usual local sets. Pianist Calvin Brown’s group, featuring leading RVA vocalists Kenneka Cook and Sam Reed, was both soulful and stirring. Area demi-legend James Plunky Branch had a well-deserved mid-afternoon slot. The revelation was up-and-coming singer Jazzmeia Horn, whose set was full of vocal pyrotechnics, charisma, and seriousness of purpose reminiscent of Rene Marie.

There were, no doubt, notable things going on at other stages, but a densely-sequenced event involves tough decisions. The toughest on Sunday was around 5, when Red Baraat, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Kurt Elling were all scheduled to start. Instead, a line of storms blasted in. Maymont was evacuated after at least one in-park lightning strike.

Not quite the electrifying conclusion the organizers were hoping for, but those who missed out are promised a head start on next year’s event.
