Fifty Shades of Grey Classical Album



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.

The Bold Type Lost Review

Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet. 

The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!

Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26! 

Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”

Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers. 

The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?



Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger is ready to turn the final page!

Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends. 

The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale

But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes. 

News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.

However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon. 

Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!

And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”

Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial. 

And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her. 

Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!

New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns. 

Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.

And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”

But at the end of the day, the show hones in on the fact that it’s about female friendship and empowerment.
“We’re women, we’re fighters, this is our moment, Liza,” Kelsey informs her. 
And if the original premise got muddled somewhere in all the love triangles, the trailer reminds you that the series was born to defy ageism in the workplace and in life in general.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that age is irrelevant,” Liza tells Kelsey.
That’s been the lesson since day one! 
From the looks of it, the 12-episode final season is going to be one wild ride as it wraps up all the storylines once and for all. 
Younger will air all episodes on Paramount+ before dropping them on TV Land at a later date. 
The final season will premiere the first four episodes on April 15.

It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical!

The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday.

It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars. 

Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.

“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet. 

“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”

Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, we know these two will go the extra mile with whatever screentime they do have! 
Per the release, the final season of Younger finds “Liza’s (Sutton Foster) personal life is on shaky ground as she tries to stay true to herself. After a setback at work, Kelsey (Hilary Duff) doubts her career decisions and discovers a new creative outlet. Meanwhile, Maggie (Debi Mazar) gets canceled.”
