In the past few months there have been tons of rumors about the couple’s relationship and a lot of speculation about whether or not they would take it to the next level.  Now, after being together for more than a year, the couple is finally going to take the plunge.

A rep for the groom-to-be told People magazine, “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend Jennifer Aniston accepted his proposal of marriage”

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Merchandise to Hit Stores Soon

Fifty Shades of Grey.  The erotic (bordering on XXX porn) series is so freakin’ popular you have surely heard of it, even if you haven’t read it yourself.

Fifty Shades of GreyBecause of its popularity, it should be of no surprise that there are plans for merchandise based on the books to be hitting a store near you sometime in the future.

There are already shirts available that are emblazoned with the words “Laters, Baby” and you can listen to a playlist based on the music that the title characters often listen to when you visit the author’s YouTube page.

Soon you can stuff your drawers and closets with clothes inspired by the books.

It’s being said that E.L. James has recently closed a licensing deal that will allow for the sale of official Fifty Shades shirts, underwear, pajamas, stockings, garters, robes, etc.

Three different companies were given licenses to create apparel inspired by the books.

FREEZE clothing will make the knit tops, hoodies, and T-shirts.  HYP will make the hosiery, such as printed tights, stockings, and garter sets.  And the undies, jammies, and robes will come from Briefly Stated.

There’s no word yet on when the clothing will be available.


Taylor Swift to Release Her Fourth Album "Red"

Taylor Swift might be making headlines lately for showing up here and there with a Kennedy, but she’s definitely not forgetting about her music.

The multi-platinum singer has recently announced during a live web chat that she will soon be releasing her fourth album, Red.

Why the name Red?  She said it’s because she explores several different emotions in her upcoming songs thanks to the relationships that she has experienced over the last two years.

Although she wrote 2010’s Speak Now on her own, the new album, which will include 16 songs, features collaborations with other songwriters, artists, and producers.

In addition to working on the album, she’s also spent the last several months working on a follow-up to the popular Speak Now World Tour, although she isn’t releasing any details on that right now.

Red is set to drop on October 22.
