DESTINY'S CHILD singer Beyonce Knowles is mortified the term she created, "bootylicious", is now in the dictionary.
The singer wrote the hit song about women with ample backsides, but is embarrassed that the phrase caused such a worldwide sensation.
She says, "I'm not very proud of that. It's in the dictionary - it's crazy.
"I wrote the song, but I wish there was another word I could have come up with if I was going to have a word in the dictionary.
"I don't know what it says (officially) in the dictionary, but my definition (of bootylicious) is beautiful, bountiful and bounce-able."
