A Musical Argument For and Against ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey

By Bryant Gilmore

As the BDSM love story of Christian Grey and Ana Steele continues to cast its spell on the hearts of housewives in America – almost 20 million, in fact – the rumors about who is to bring to life the NSFW tale of true love on the big screen seem endless. At present, some of the hot contenders are “Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder, who’s been campaigning hard and “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgaard for Christian, and for Ana, “Pretty Little Liars” actress Lucy Hale and Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”).

Now, author E.L. James has hand-picked the producers behind the Oscar-winning movie “The Social Network” to help bring her bondage dreams to reality.

In the meantime, fans and non-fans alike will have to content themselves with the plethora of Internet goodies the series has inspired, including the comedic “Fifty Shades of Grey – The Musical.” Put together by YouTube duo AVbyte, the two-and-a-half minute sing-song clip gives a hilarious perspective on fans and foes of the best-selling series. The video starts off with a hardcore “Fifty Shades” fan literally singing her praises of the book while another woman counter-sings about the series’ negative impact on feminism and her hopes that men don’t the wrong idea. Not to be outdone, a down low male fan pops in to profess his love for “Fifty Shades” – secretly, of course.

The video has already gotten over 62,000 hits in just three days and while that may not be on par with a new music video release from Nicki, Rihanna or Justin Bieber, it’s still pretty impressive for.
