Will.i.am inspired Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L James to write to write the racy novels.

In a revelation that Will.i.am will no doubt cherish, the books' author has said that she used to listen to the Black Eyed Peas frontman singing while she was writing the sexy scenes between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

She said: "I have songs that I write sex to. One of them is the Black Eyed Peas’ Sexy. That is a very sexy song."

Sexy is from their 2003 album Elephunk and contains lyrics such as "For you I’m a fanatic, I’m an addict, your sexy antics turn me on like automatic." Ooh la la!

See you you picked to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movieRM
