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.

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!



Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.

On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.

But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.

We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.

Most Frustrating Thing About the Season

The love triangle.

We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.

The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.


Funniest Moment

There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.

Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.

But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.

On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant

Fall TV Preview: Riverdale Season 4 Trailer Reveals Jughead is Missing



The Riverdale Season 4 Trailer is Here & Jughead is Missing

The Riverdale trailer for season 4 is equal parts sexy and mysterious (what the hell happened to Jughead?!)

The series creators promised the season would be more high-school oriented giving it a “season 1” vibe following a dark, twisted, and oftentimes, ridiculous (we still loved it) G&G/ The Farm storyline on season 3.

And while they’re making good on that promise — we see Cheryl and the like prancing around the halls of Riverdale High — the show still capitalizes on the darker undertones and secrets.

This is a town that thrives on murder, and that’s never going to change.

The teens grapple with a pretty daunting realization — they’re going to have to part ways after senior year.

“Isn’t it crazy? In just nine-months, life as we know it will be over,” Veronica (Camila Mendes) muses without realizing the statement is more ominous than she intended.

The trailer reveals that one favorite may not make it through their senior year alive as the whole town embarks on a search mission through the volatile woods of Riverdale.

Who are they looking for? Our very own Jughead Jones.

Fans expected a rocky season for Jug following the cliffhanger of season 3, which saw him missing as Betty, Veronica and Archie cleaned up the blood from their clothes, but this has us officially worried.

Later in the trailer, we hear Jughead’s screams as he begs for “help” and tries to break out of what sounds like a car trunk.

What happened to Jughead? And is his disappearance linked to whatever happened in the final episode?

Other major moments in the trailer include Betty getting clobbered over the head from behind by an unknown figure (she’s after the Farm so it could be Evelyn Evernever), crime scene photos that make Betty gasp “oh my god,” a scantily dressed Veronica performing some pussycat dolls-esque routine on stage as she assures that she’s “no stranger to scandal,” and a bunch of smokin’ sex scenes with our three favorite ships: Choni, Bughead, and Varchie.

Yep, sounds like senior year!

Not spotted in the video: Alice Cooper, who we found out is infiltrating The Farm, anyone from The Farm (Chad Michael Murray, where ya at?), Kevin, also with the damn Farm, and Betty’s real brother, Chic, who was introduced in the finale as an FBI agent working with Alice to take down The Farm.

Riverdale’s Camila Mendes Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted



Camila Mendes Instagram

Camila Mendes is a survivor.

The Riverdale star graced the October issue of Women’s Health where she came forward as a survivor of sexual assault.

Mendes revealed that she was slipped a date rape drug known as a “roofie” while she was a freshman at New York’s University Tisch School of the Arts.

Mendes became visibly emotional while recalling the attack, but she didn’t disclose any details about her attacker or what happened.

This isn’t the first Riverdale star to speak up about sexual assault and harassment.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Mendes’ co-star, Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper on the hit series) took to Tumblr to reveal that a “significantly older” male co-worker tried to force himself on her while they were on a date.

She was a teenager at the time.

During the interview, Mendes also dished about how moving frequently before the age of 18 was a traumatic experience for her growing up.

She said she moves almost 12 times due to her parents’ divorce and her dad’s career.

“You’re constantly saying goodbye to people, and you’re constantly being removed from your identity. When you start to feel like you’re connecting with a group of people, an environment, and a home — a physical home— it can be destabilizing when you’re uprooted and taken somewhere else,” she said.

Nowadays, Mendes loves to follow a routine that includes staying at the same hotels when she travels, visiting familiar cafes and yoga studios.

She also opened up about living with an eating disorder.
