Selena Gomez scores with ’50 Shades of Grey’ parody


Selena Gomez is certainly seeing a lighter side of “Grey” -- as the actress and girlfriend of Justin Bieber offered up a parody of the ubiquitous erotic novel “50 Shades of Grey” on Tuesday.

Titled “50 Shades of Blue,” Gomez teamed with Funny or Die and comedian Nick Kroll to lampoon the story of a young woman and her slightly older and very dominant lover.

As a house painter for hire, Kroll is charmless (and hilarious) in the 3½-minute video, hacking and wheezing while slathering Gomez’s various walls a robin’s egg blue as she lusts after him.


“It smells like cat food in here,” he tells Selena, as she stares longingly. But don’t take our word for it, watch the full clip below.

Gomez and Kroll aren’t the only ones poking fun at “50 Shades.” Various cast members of “Saturday Night Live”made a mock commercial for suggesting the novel was the perfect gift for Mother’s Day (and for mom’s eyes only).

Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart, among others, also staged a live reading of sorts, performing excerpts from the novel for MTV News.
