Yesterday morning, we were told the earthshaking news that…
The slutty satanic singer who calls herself “Lady Gaga” has set a record by becoming the first person to attract 20 million followers on Twitter!!! – beating Justin Bieber, who has “only” 18 million.
Who are these people? Don’t they have a life?
An “erotic” novel about bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism — is ranked 28th in the New York Times bestseller list and is top of the Amazon and Barnes & Noble charts.
Fifty Shades of Grey, by E L James (pen name of 48-year-old British mother of two Erika Leonard), was published last May and has become an instant hit. Daily Mail says the bondage book is “credited with rekindling the lives of U.S. women.”
That book was followed by Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, each of which tells of a dangerous and erotic world of high society bondage and sexual desire.
90% of the trilogy’s 100,000 sales have been as e-books. Actual copies are listed on Amazon at up to $999.99.
The main character is Christian Grey, a 27-year-old billionaire who seduces young graduate Anastasia Steele (such imaginative names!). The stories have been likened to the Twilight movie series, though suggestions of plagiarism are denied.
Leonard said her books are aimed at women.
