'Fifty Shades of Grey's Sex Scenes Written To Black Eyed Peas
Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James has revealed that she writes sex scenes while listening to the Black Eyed Peas.
The 48-year-old said that she is a fan of the band's track 'Sexy', from their 2003 album Elephunk.
"I have songs that I write sex to," The Sun quotes her as saying. "One of them is the Black Eyed Peas' 'Sexy'. That is a very sexy song."
James was speaking at the launch of Fifty Shades of Grey - The Classical Album, the musical accompaniment to the international bestseller.
She went on to attribute some of the success of the books to their covers and the rise of eReaders.

"I designed the covers because in my early 30s I read a lot of romantic fiction when I was slogging in and out of London on the Tube, but they had these horrible covers with women with clothes falling off," she explained.
"I hated that and I had to bend the covers back. So I designed really discrete covers so that no-one would ever know it is salacious."
James added: "eBook readers have been very liberating for people because they can read whatever they like with no judgement."
Fifty Shades of Grey's upcoming film adaptation is currently the subject of much casting speculation, with Ian Somerhalder, Chris Pine and Alexander Skarsgård all linked to the lead male role of Christian Grey.
