DESTINY'S CHILD star Michelle Williams learned to write songs like her bandmate Beyonce Knowles after suffering a major heartbreak.

The singer refuses to go into detail about her 2003 catastrophe, but she reveals it gave her a better understanding of how her pal comes up with love songs.

She says, "I look at how Beyonce writes. I mean, she could write a song sitting on the toilet.

"I was able to experience a little hurt this year, the loss of a love that I thought was going to be mine forever. I realised when I fall in love, I fall pretty hard."
