Fifty Shades of Grey Classical Album

Published

on

The “50 shades” Phenomenon 
The “Fifty Shades” trilogy has sold over 31 million copies worldwide. The book has become so popular that teen girls, mothers and wives are all being caught reading it, and enjoying it too, sometimes even a little too much. Every woman is fantasizing about her very own Christian Grey, which may say either good or bad things about or society. The idea of the dom and sub relationship from Greys persepctive is in my opinion disgusting and degrading for women. How the relationship turns into kinky ** ahem later on when they fall in love, well that, that’s something that has definitely made women more sexually open and experimental, if you will. There’s absolutely nothing to be shy about. As this trilogy made men think that women are just reading the shit out of porn, I must advise you that there was a deeper meaning to the “porn” we read. There is a twisted love story, a reason for this gorgeous man to be the way he is and yes, the kinkiness is thrilling okay!!! There is passion, adventure, romance, sex, and a future. That’s what women want; to change the bad boy that no other women could change, but be changed by him in the process.

 Anyways, while there have been speculations as to who will be cast as Christian and Anastasia Grey, the author E.L James has said that it is a bit too early for a movie. After reading the first book I was very anti Ian Somerhalder being Christian Grey, but now that I’ve finished “50 shades freed” I could definitely see it happening. Those eyes, that mouth, those suavamente moves, the way he looks in that suit. Yep, it’s Ian. Although its closely tied with Matt Bomer, who fits the description perfectly. Lets face it dolls, the guy will not be a copper haired boy. I’m still rather unsure of who should be cast as Ana. Speculations of Lucy Hale have been afloat, but aside from her big gorgeous eyes, I just don’t see it. I can see it being Alexis Bledel, Emmy Rossum, Elizabeth Olsen, or Emma Watson. In the meantime though, E.L James has found a different way to keep the hype afloat.

EMI Music, along with E.L James, is releasing a 15-track collection of classical pieces that inspired the author to write the book. The tracks can have also been mentioned in all three books, usually in an intimate scene with floggers, handcuffs and well, you can imagine the rest, are involved.  The album will be available for download on ITunes and Amazon September 11, but pre-orders have been skyrocketing through the roof. For those who have not finished reading the trilogies just yet, this classical album will definitely heighten the experience.  If you know what I mean.
Aside from the soundtrack, the “Fifty Shades” phenomenon seems to be taking over the world. Rumor has it that E.L James is starting her own Fifty Shades clothing line, complete with stockings, garters and robes. As Christian Grey becomes a household name and his 50 shades personality becomes desired by every woman in the world, designers are creating Grey and Steele inspired outfits for their upcoming fall releases. Some companies are going as far as connecting the real world with the entertainment world and creating “50 shades of Gray” bath and home décor. It’s safe to say that if you haven’t been sucked into the mainstream phenomenon yet, or haven’t heard about it, you must live under a rock.  I don’t know if this obsession about making dom and sub inspired clothing and home furniture is a good thing, but it clearly says a lot about our society. Marketers are smart because they found something that people love and are making money out of it, but it makes me really question the rest of the people in the world. Sure, a little kink and a little play here and there are fine, but turning your kitchen into some 50 shades of gray stuff, I don’t know about all of that.

27 Best Secret Siblings on Television

Published

Secret Siblings and Long Lost Siblings on Television

There are a lot of secret siblings on television.

Plenty of TV shows tend to build their foundation on common tropes such as the cringe-worthy love triangle trope and the long lost sibling trope.

If you need to stir up some drama, especially in a campy teen series, there’s no better way than by bringing in a secret sibling that’s jealous, scorned, vengeful, broken, betrayed, looking for a family, or all of the above.

Some secret siblings are introduced in a sensical way with the serious laying some breadcrumbs leading up to the introduction.

Other reveals come out of left field and frustrate audiences by appearing as mere plot devices thrown in for the sake of it.

And sometimes, the trope works well as the secret siblings become pivotal to the storyline and the main character’s development.

We’re looking back at some of our favorite secret siblings on television. Which ones would you add to the list?

Chic/ Charles – Riverdale

On Riverdale, Betty and Jughead’s first half brother (yes, they’re still dating), Chic, was a poser but stirred up enough drama to make the fandom collectively hate him. Eventually, we meet the real Charles, an FBI agent, who bonded with Betty over her mother’s time at The Farm.

Unfortunately, Charles turned out to be just as crazy as Chic. The two were revealed to be lovers who are plotting something against the family that abandoned them.

Scott Rosson – Gossip Girl

Scott appeared in the second season of Gossip Girl as the love child of Lily van der Woodsen and Rufus Humphrey thus making BF and GF Serena and Dan half-siblings.

Everyone tried to keep Scott a secret for as long as they could but eventually, the secret sibling was outed by the one and only Gossip Girl. XoXo.

Adam – Dynasty

Adam, the kidnapped child of Blake Carrington and Alexis Carrington, appeared early on in Dynasty but was quickly revealed to be a fake hired by Alexis to get her hands on the Carrington money.

The real Adam Carrington makes his way to the Manor, though, he’s equally as deranged and way more dangerous as his predecessor. He had his brother, Steven, committed in Europe after thinking he was having “hallucinations,” shoved his mother’s face into the fireplace, and continues to sabotage his half-sister, Fallon, daily all while hoping to gain his father’s love.

Ari and Ziva – NCIS

After Ari murdered NCIS agent Kate Todd, everyone believed that Ziva David was simply his Mossad control officer. It’s only after Ziva kills Ari to save Gibbs that we find out that he was her half-brother.

It’s a storyline that took place during NCIS Season 3 and has had repercussions that have lasted until present day NCIS Season 17!

Zelena – Once Upon a Time

Zelena, aka the Wicked Witch of the West (from the Wizard of Oz), arrives in Once Upon a Time Season 3. She is Regina Mills’ (the Evil Queen) half-sister, who was abandoned as a child and wished dearly for a family. Her jealousy over Regina consumed her and led to plenty of magical wars before the sisters mend their relationship and lived happily ever after.

Anezka – Jane the Virgin

Yael Groblas pulled double duty on Jane the Virgin to portray the main character Petra and her long lost twin, Anezka. Anezka was a “shy mouse” who grew up in an orphanage in the Czech Republic before being brought to America by their evil mother, Magda.

Though it seems like she wants a genuine relationship with Petra, she’s later revealed to be conspiring with Magda to steal Rafael’s money and flee the country.

Maggie and Meredith – Grey’s Anatomy

In the Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 finale, we learn that Maggie and Meredith are half-sisters. Their mother, Ellis, had a fling with Richard when Meredith was very young.

They put Maggie up for adoption, but when she got older, she learned her late mother was a top-notch surgeon at Grace Seattle Hospital. While the sisters had a strange relationship at first, they later came around and developed a friendship.

Adam- Supernatural

Adam was revealed to be John Winchester’s son on Supernatural, yet it was more shocking to find out that John was actually a better father to Adam than our boys, Dean and Sam. It’s no surprise that they left him in hell. The resentment is real.

Wally – Flash

The Flash Season 2 introduces us to Wally, who is revealed to be Iris’ long lost brother from her estranged mother. Wally hesitates to embrace the familial unit, but eventually joins Team Flash and becomes Kid Flash

Alex Drake – Pretty Little Liars

The PLL family tree was more complicated than the Game of Thrones one and there was plenty of surprise sibling reveals including Alex Drake as “AD” in the series finale.

Alex is the daughter of Mary Drake and Peter Hastings, and Spencer’s identical twin sister. While Spencer was given to her biological father and his wife, Alex was given up for adoption to an orphanage in the UK where she plotted her insanely complex revenge.

Charlotte DiLaurentis – Pretty Little Liars

Like I said, the family tree is very complicated. Charlotte was born “Charles” and transitioned into the character we know as CeCe. Though she is the biological daughter of Mary Drake and Pastor Ted, she was adopted by Jessica and Kenneth DiLaurentis (Jessica’s sister is Mary).

This makes her Alison and Jason’s biological cousin and adoptive sister (and she had a romantic relationship with Jason!), and also, the biological half-sister of Spencer Hastings.

Derek – One Tree Hill

In yet another case where we meet the “fake” secret sibling before meeting the real one, a deranged and broken man named Ian poses as Peyton’s half-brother, Derek, to get close to her.

When fake Derek realizes that he’s losing Peyton, he tries to rape her but thankfully, Lucas and her real brother, Derek, a US Marine, come to her rescue.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3 Trailer: Being The Queen of Hell is Hard Work

Published

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3 Trailer

If you can’t contain your excitement for the season 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, join the club.

The new trailer for the series premiering on January 24 (soon) on Netflix introduces us to Sabrina: the Queen of Hell.

“You know what you have to do, Sabrina. Claim the throne,” a voice begins as Sabrina realizes she has to make the ultimate sacrifice to “save her precious Greendale” and her boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch, who sacrificed himself in season 2 to save his girl.

With the balance off in hell, heaven, and Earth, things are a little wonky yet also much darker than in previous seasons. There’s also new demons, cheerleading practice, and Sabrina wearing a lot of white colors.

“Hell’s under new management now,” Sabrina declares confidently.

Though, Sabrina’s decision doesn’t sit well with Aunt Zelda who informs her “being Queen of Hell” isn’t a summer job.

“You’re putting the whole coven in peril just so you can see your boyfriend.”

Watch the trailer above.

According to the Netflix synopsis: “Part Three finds Sabrina reeling from the harrowing events of Part Two. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison of her beloved boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch.”

The series also put out this fun and twisted music video. It’s catchy — you’ve been warned.

YOU Renewed For Season 3

Joe Goldberg will stalk again when YOU returns for its recently renewed third season!

Netflix gave the official green-light to the Penn Badgley-fronted drama on Tuesday.

“See you soon neighbor,” the YOU Twitter account posted along with a video teasing the new season.

The series originally premiered on Lifetime but found massive success after scoring a streaming deal on Netflix.

By the time the second season premiered on Dec. 26, it was one of Netflix’s most-watched premieres of 2019.

With Joe Goldberg becoming a pop culture phenomenon, the show gaining a massive following, and the second season ending on a mighty cliffhanger, a renewal was almost a sure thing.

Entertainment Weekly reports that season 3 will consist of 10 new episodes. Badgley will reprise his role as the stalker/killer who’s trying his best while his baby momma Victoria Pedretti will return as the equally deranged, Love.

The new season will premiere sometime in 2021 and will hopefully give us the following answers (spoilers ahead):

  • Who is the neighbor and will she become the object of Joe’s affection? Could Beck be alive? Is it Beck’s sister? A total stranger?
  • How are Love and Joe preparing to be parents?
  • Are they going to continue killing together?
  • Is it Joe’s baby? Or did Love lie?
  • What happened to Ellie? We seriously hope she’s okay.
  • Will we get more clarity on what happened to Joe’s mother?

The series is based on two bestsellers from Caroline Kepnes, “YOU” and “Hidden Bodies.” She’s currently writing the third book, though it’s unclear if it will be the basis for the upcoming season, especially given how much has changed in the screen-adaptation.

Just remember Joe, we know where the bodies are buried.
