"GREY," the latest in author E L James ' best-selling series that turned millions of readers onto BDSM romantics, debuted. As with the stylistically (and grammatically) challenged British wordsmith's other novels about billionaire sex bully Christian Grey and confounding virgin heroine Anastasia Steele, the fourth installment challenges the boundaries of one's intimate life - and is unlikely to win a literary award. This go-round, "Grey" retells the first "Fifty Shades" from Christian's perspective.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Campus police at New Mexico State University are investigating claims that someone stole panties from a woman's clothesline. The woman told officers on Monday that she had hung several pairs of colored underwear and two bras on the clothesline Saturday night.

Your first reaction to a concert teaming of The Game and Snoop Dogg might be "Duck!" But despite their one-time affiliations with, respectively, the violent California gangs Bloods and Crips, nothing was more peaceable than Saturday's meeting of the millionaire rappers at the Wachovia Spectrum. Snoop, hip- hop's most languorously fluid rapper, specializes in stadium-sized, pimped-out machismo, and here he laid it on thick - a stage filled with potlike plants and a soft porn gangsta film with Snoop taking on naked women and gunmen with guns blazing.

Wary and fastidious theatergoers may understandably think of "German sex comedy" as an oxymoron. But The Underpants, which presents an often funny overview of sexual and political power struggles, brings together two writing talents separated by close to a century. Carl Sternheim wrote Die Hose in 1910 as the first in a series of works that satirized bourgeois values; Steve Martin adapted it for contemporary audiences. The comedy, at the Arden Theatre, deals with a miserable marriage.

Why would you want panty hose without toes? Well, think about it. It's spring. Soon you're going to want to start wearing your sandals. The ones that bare your toes and flaunt your funky new nail polish. But your legs are still in winter mode, dry and flaky and not exactly svelte. Wouldn't you prefer to smooth away the blemishes under some sheer nylon?

The Rolling Stones, not satisfied with the $89.5 mil they raked in from the September 1997-launched "Bridges to Babylon" tour, will do a 20-gig tour early next year on which the best tix will cost $300 each.

" The tour, designed to sell the live album from the Babylon tour, No Security - out yesterday - will play the so-called secondary cities the band didn't drain the last time around, such as Denver; San Francisco; Hartford, Conn.

Whatever blows your skirt up. That could be the motto for a new breed of high-tech peeping toms: Men who secretly videotape up women's skirts. Philadelphia police say Daniel Laws, of Wyncote, is one of these perverts. Earlier this week, Laws, 50, became the first person arrested in the city under Pennsylvania's new peeping-tom law. Security guards at Filene's Basement on Chestnut Street allegedly caught Laws taking a videocamera from a duffel bag, surreptitiously placing it on the floor between the legs of shopping women, stepping back and letting the camera capture a view of their panties.

He shot a man to death with a .22-caliber rifle in a dispute over a parking space, served 12 years in prison, then skipped out on his parole. He's been driving a car owned by a woman who vanished three months ago, and he was nabbed by cops after another woman allegedly saw him climbing into her bathroom window. He had a 9-mm semiautomatic pistol and an assortment of women's panties stashed in the glove compartment of the car he was driving, according to police. Arthur J. Bomar, 38, a man who was living in Warrington, Bucks County, is your worst nightmare, police say. The paroled murderer, arrested last week in Lower Merion, has been linked to the disappearance of Maria Cabuenos, 25, a Juniata Park woman who's been missing since March 15. Authorities also want to question him in connection with the June 20, 1996, murder of Aimee Willard, 22, of Brookhaven, Delaware County.
