Beyonce Doesn't Want To Be 'Hot Girl'
Beyonce has always been the epitome of Bootylicious, which is why she'll have fans crying into their D Child memorabilia after revealing she's 'over' life as a pop superstar in an interview with Marie Claire magazine.
In a revealing chat, the RnB songstress claims she's sick of being little more than the "hot girl" and she wants to aim higher than pop hits and predictable blockbuster film roles in movies like 'Austin Powers' in 'Goldmember' and 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. I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough. I am really proud that I am one of the artists that has the opportunity to be on magazine covers and to be in the movies. And I do think that I'm opening doors for more black women, just like Halle Berry and Diana Ross opened doors for me."
She goes on to tell the publication she's determined to become 'a legend, an icon' and feels her next movie role as jazz great Etta James in 'Cadillac Records' - will be the part that will help her shake off her existing bubble-gum pop persona.
Poppy chart-smashers aren't the only thing she wants to shake off - the 'Irreplaceable' star, who turned 27 on September 4th, had to gain about twenty pounds for the role, which she now has to loose in preparation for her next role in the psychological thriller 'Obsessed'.
She explains, "I've been saying for a long time that I wanted to do something dark. People are going to be very shocked. It's the complete opposite of me. It was very emotionally draining. I was exhausted."
