*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?

*A solemn milestone was marked in Nigeria today as the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls was remembered; and moreover, how unsuccessful the attempts to bring them back have been. Exactly 100 days after the girls were kidnapped by Islamic extremists Boko Haram, 219 of them are still missing, a presidential committee said.
In the three months since they were taken, at least 11 of their parents have died, residents told The Associated Press.
