Beyoncé is sick of being such a hottie
Bootylicious Beyoncé Knowles is set to shock fans by revealing she’s "over" life as a pop superstar in a new interview, reports Wenn. The former Destiny's Child singer tells the upcoming issue of Britain’s Marie Claire magazine that she’s sick of being little more than the "hot girl" and she wants to aim higher than bubblegum pop hits and blockbuster film roles in movies like Dreamgirls. She says, "I’m over being a pop star. I don’t wanna be a hot girl. I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot (and) I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records." She also admitted that she wants to be "a legend, an icon," and feels sure her next movie role - as jazz great Etta James in Cadillac Records - will be the part that will help her really show off her talents. "People are going to be very shocked," she said about her role on the movie. It’s the complete opposite of me. It was very emotionally draining. I was exhausted." Until then, Mrs Jay-Z has a new album due in November, and you can bet the accompanying music videos will feature B strutting her stuff in sexy outfits and shaking her thing for all her fans. How else is she meant to sell CDs?
