*No doubt, Beyonce knows a great opportunity when she sees one, and now she may be tempting us with the results. Accustomed to her own reputation for turning folks on, the “Partition,” singer posted a teaser for the eagerly anticipated erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” on her Instagram account over the weekend. So the question is, is it a done deal that Beyonce music will be on the soundtrack?
According to the L.A. Times, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has been described as “mommy porn” and is adapted from E.L. James’ wildly popular 2011 novel, which tells the story of virginal college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the dashing, domineering billionaire who takes an interest in her.

The event was hosted by celebrity ambassadors: boxing champion Laila Ali, WNBA and six-time Olympian Lisa Leslie, NBA Veteran Jalen Rose and sports expert for ESPN Stephen A. Smith.
*Have you ever wanted to slap the mess out of your co-worker? What about the boss that makes you wonder why she even hired you because she clearly doesn’t like you? And those women in the office who do nothing but yak, yak, yak behind your back and then turn around and grin in your face?
Don’t you have daydreams about them slicing their finger off with the paper cutter, don’t lie.

*Under the guise of the film, My Sister’s Wedding, star Jurnee Smollet is at what she believes is the opening night of the film at the Arclight Theater in the heart of Hollywood. But as she is escorted inside, she is met by a shrouded Meagan Good, who escorts her “underground,” to a secret society of women the likes of Alfre Woodard, Tracy Ellis Ross, and Loretta Devine – all wearing monk-like, hooded robes and acting very mysterious.
In the dungeon-like atmosphere, while footage of vintage black and white films show black women in minor roles, Woodard steps forth and asks the startled young actress “Haven’t you ever wondered why black women play such minor roles in movies, why more of us aren’t directors or producers?

*Let’s just keep it real right now. Don Lemon has never been one of our favorite black men.
And that’s putting it mildly.
After a while, it stopped surprising us that his perspective on some of the issues that plague the black community always came out of left field. The man just had a knack for rubbing black folk the wrong way.
Please holla if you feel me.
But a recent encounter and some pretty cool “upgrades” seem to be somewhat encouraging for the man we love to h*te…uh, disagree with.
For example, Lemon expected the worst when he was recognized by a viewer in Harlem recently; but lo and behold, what he thought had the potential of a beat-down, was actually quite a compliment.
“I don’t always agree with you,” the person began, ominously. “But keep it up. I’m not always supposed to agree with you.”
