Beyonce Embarrassed By Dictionary Reference

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."

Well like I said when you do crazy stuff for a man the world dictates it in history. Stop stepping so low for something who is much lower than you really beyonce wake up and smell the coffee get a man not a dog and go on with your career really! Then the world won't record silly issues as history some jokes ant funny really especially when the world of men is observing.
