Remember Howard Wolfson, the onetime Hillary Clinton advisor profiled in New York last October? Turns out he has a thing for the music of Brooklyn singer-songwriter Alina Simone, whom he questions about her taste for Russian folk and Britney Spears. “I am trying,” she tells her dogged interviewer, “to bring a little Britney into my heart and not be so sad and dark all the time.” [Gotham Acme]
