New Yorkers, be sure to check out the recommended readings before hitting the voting booth in a couple weeks (you are voting in the primaries, right?) so you can be sure to vote for the feminist candidates, who aren’t necessarily the female candidates. We’ve also got updates on the misogyny of the Emmys, lots of terrible people, some disheartening studies (the one about Fifty Shades readers was particularly interesting, though not terribly surprising), and so much more.

Happy Discount Candy Day, everyone! Now’s the time to stock up on cheap heart-shaped candies. I’ve also decided it’s time for a fun, if superficial, Lunchtime Poll.

Hey guys, it’s that time of the year again, when we get to relax and watch the Grammys! Yay! So pull up your couch, get this party started, and hope there aren’t anymore disastrous performances like Taylor Swift’s cover of “Rhiannon”! Snacks are sure to be at hand and keep the wine bottle near. It is gonna get crazy!
This is a reminder for you all to tune into the live blogging of the Grammy Awards and the Red Carpet. I will be live blogging and relaxing, so tune in!
You will all have to bear with me on this momentous occasion as it is my first live blog! Yay! Get ready to get the party started at 6 ET/5 CT. I will be starting with E!’s coverage of the Red Carpet then moving onto the Grammy’s themselves.
See you there!
