The group's track 'Sexy' apparently helped EL James write the popular adult publication.

The author of Fifty Shades Of Grey, EL James, has confessed that she wrote the hugely popular adult novel whilst listening to the Black Eyed Peas.

The 'Where Is The Love?' star's 2003 'Elephunk' album track 'Sexy' was highlighted as a key song in helping inspire the book's content.

"I have songs that I write sex to," she admitted to The Sun. " One of them is the Black Eyed Peas' 'Sexy'. That is a very sexy song."

Tulisa Contostavlos recently told Capital that she thought the publication was "brilliant" but wasn't shocked at the content.

Meanwhile, Black Eyed Peas star was recently in the headlines after he debuted his new song 'Reach For The Stars' during a live broadcast from the Curiosity rover on Mars.
