Music scoop of the week comes from (click) Mother Jones.

It appears that a hard-core Christian revivalist from Alabama licensed one of his songs to the 50 Shades of Grey sado-maso film, thinking it was a rom-com.

Paul Janeway, lead singer of Birmingham soul band St Paul and the Broken Bones explained: ‘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.’


May he be forgiven.

    Do a lil’ fact checking. Paul Janeway is not a “hard-core Christian revivalist”.
