Clueless Christian With Song In 'Fifty Shades': 'What Have I Done?'
A Christian singer of a classic soul band who licensed his music to Fifty Shades of Grey had no idea that the film was based off of a sex-filled, BDSM book. In fact, he thought the movie would just be a rom-com. Yes, really.
We're not sure which rock Paul Janeway of St. Paul & the Broken Bones had been hiding under, but he was surprised to say the least when he found out what the movie truly is. After he saw a preview of the film, he told Mother Jones that he thought, "Oh, shit. Oh, no. What have I done?"
Janeway grew up in an incredibly religious household; he even began training to become a preacher until he ditched that career path when he turned 18 and decided to turn to music. He told Mother Jones:
When they presented the licensing opportunity, they presented it as: It's going to be a huge movie, they want to put a decent amount of the song in the movie in a nonsexual scene. I knew it was a book, but I had no idea what it was. So I was like, sure, big movie, good exposure. I'll be in this romantic comedy. Which is what I thought it was: a romantic comedy. It's a good way to make money in the music business, you know.
Here's the band's soulful track, "Call Me," that was featured in Fifty Shades of Grey:
