Watch The Roots Lose Their Shit Over the '50 Shades' Trailer

Everyone's buzzing about the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, because Fifty Shades isn't so much a work of fiction as a culture-wide essay prompt.

Katie Couric's Dead Husband's Phone Makes 2am Calls to Cops

So this is genuinely bizarre: Katie Couric and New York police commissioner Ray Kelly are investigating a series of 911 calls placed in the early hours of the morning—Tuesdays at 2 AM—from a number registered to Couric's dead husband Jay Monahan, who passed away of colon cancer in 1998.

As a woman, one tires of "woman things," that canon of superficial shit that all women supposedly go Pavlovially apeshit over: chocolate, high heels, designer purses, Sex and the City, white zinfandel, the oeuvre of Matthew McConaughey.
