'Fifty Shades of Grey': Stephenie Meyer weighs in on 'Twilight' fan fiction turned best-seller
So how does "Twilight" scribe Stephenie Meyer feel about being the inspiration for the erotic books? She doesn't feel much at all.
"I haven't read it. I mean, that's really not my genre, not my thing," she tells MTV, laughing it off. "I've heard about it; I haven't really gotten into it that much. Good on her -- she's doing well. That's great!"When it's suggested that "Fifty Shades" wouldn't exist without Meyer's source material, though, Meyer gives James some credit where credit is due. "It might not exist in the exact form that it's in," Meyer says. "Obviously, [James] had a story in her, and so it would've come out in some other way."
The circle of life continues, by the way. Now, "Fifty Shades of Grey" has spawned its own fan fiction.
So basically, as a society, we are doomed.
