Everyone makes fun of me at the office for being a germophobe. But read this story and tell me I’m wrong: professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology tests on library books and found that Fifty Shades Of Grey had the herpes virus. Oh, yes. The two profs checked out the 10 most borrowed books in the Antwerp library to test them for germs and drugs. Not only did the E..L. James BDSM erotica have traces of herpes, but they also found traces of cocaine on every single other book. Relax, though: you won’t get a contact high or a persistent vaginal itch from any of these books because the concentrations of both were so minimal. (Just to be safe, Belgians, you could always wear condoms on your hands while reading!) Let’s talk about the appropriate way to use library books, people. Tip #1: DON’T GIVE YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS STDS.

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and, oh, just about an eternity in the sulfurous pit of hell. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan fiction (no, really?) is summarized as follows. I’ll let you connect the dots. Keep reading »
Y’all, I just watched all of the UK series “The Fall” this past weekend and Jamie Dornan plays a serial killer in it and oh my god, I think he is going to perfect as Christian Grey in this sure-to-be weird and kinky movie. Dakota Johnson certainly is doing her best timid mouse impression on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. I like the way Jamie is gripping that tie. Hot hot hot.
Charlie Hunnam who? The producers of “Fifty Shades of Grey” have found their (new) Christian Grey — Irish actor Jamie Dornan, best known for his role on ABC’s “Once Upon A Time.” Can someone help me pick my jaw up off the floor. This dude is finnnnne. I have no idea what his demeanor is like, and thus whether I think I’ll like him as the dominating Christian, but from a visual perspective, I APPROVE.

Thanks to Charlie Hunnam dropping out of “Fifty Shades,” the Christian Grey casting game is back in action and heating up more than ever before. Among rumors of Jamie Dornan being the new frontrunner, continued prayers it’ll magically be Ian Somerholder, there’s now even a campaign for James Franco to take on the sexy role, thanks to Britney Spears.
While we love James Franco, jack of all trades, we think that could be a disaster … for several good reasons. Why should he not play the troubled billionaire and be ourboyfriend instead?
Britney, “Fifty Shades Of Grey” fanatics, here’s why James Franco is not a sex-obsessed business man — but a “hearts and flowers” guy instead. Read more on Your Tango…
Nooooooo! Seriously gorgeous Charlie Hunnam has backed out of playing Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, apparently because his “Sons of Anarchy” filming scheduling is not allowing him to “adequately prepare” for the role. I sure hope he wasn’t badgered out of playing the character because some fans weren’t pleased with the casting. (“Twilight” diehards weren’t happy with Robert Pattinson being cast as Edward Cullen at first either. But they came around.) Hunnam had previously told Entertainment Weekly, “There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I’m probably not what everybody imagined. Because reading is so personal and people bring a character to life in their imagination, they feel ownership over that character. That’s daunting if I allowed myself to think about it too much. I’m taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him — and also dress up nice and look good in those suits.”
Sigh. Such a bummer. I thought he was perfectly unexpected. Back to the drawing board I guess. Who would you like to see replace him as Christian Grey? [Entertainment Weekly]
