Pow! Welcome to Wednesday, it’s going to be a go-ood day. How can we tell? Simple. The first news story we’ve come across involves Eminem hooking up with the world’s hottest porn star.

But the rapper isn’t hooking up with the legendary Sasha Grey in a Charlie Sheen 'do loads of coke then lock ‘em in your bathroom type of way'. Oh no, he’s hooking up with her in a 'Sasha's playing my lover in my new video Space Bound' type of way.

"Just the 12-inches? Oh, go on then..."

For the benefit of those not currently punching the air or embracing a male colleague, here is a brief rundown of the porn phenomenon that is Sasha Grey. The 22-year-old Californian is a veteran of 224 porn films, including AVN award-winning triumvirate Fuck Slaves, Anal Cavity Search 6 and Throat: A Cautionary Tale.

Sasha moved into mainstream film work in 2009 when she starred in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience. She increased her celebrity by playing herself in Entourage. And she moved into sexpot superstardom when she was voted the 89th sexiest woman in the world in last year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World.

Two of Sasha’s more memorable quotes are: “The only time I have to fake it is when I do a softcore movie," and “Most of the triple X I see is boring, and does not arouse me physically or visually. I am determined and ready to be a commodity that fulfills everyone’s fantasies.”

Dad gave her the green light, but Mum "wasn't sure"

All of which presumably means right now you’re either Googling her name, or beating your office desk in frustration. Doing the latter? Don’t bruise those precious fists of yours, men. It’s only six hours until you get home. You can ‘discover’ Sasha then.
