Sexy R'n'B sensation Beyonce Knowles pulled out of a high-profile photoshoot with a British magazine when she learned the photographer wanted to smear her in honey.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer was to be pictured by kitsch photographer DAVID LaCHAPELLE - who was behind the controversial 1999 shots of Britney Spears in ROLLING STONE magazine - for style mag THE FACE.

However, the Destiny's Child frontwoman cancelled the plans upon discovering he wanted her to strip naked and be covered in honey, with her modesty protected.

A Face source tells British tabloid The Sun, "She's a very religious girl and thought it wasn't suitable."
