Beyonce: I'm A Singer

DESTINY'S CHILD beauty BEYONCE KNOWLES wants to be respected for her vocal talent - not just her appearance.

The gifted SURVIVOR singer enjoys looking glamorous in sexy clothes, but admits she gets "irritated" when people focus on her stage appearance and not her performance.

She explains, "Respect is half-way checked - when you concentrate on image then people don't want to give you the respect vocally.

"At one point, I could hit a high note for a hundred years and go down three octaves and people would say, 'Oh, look at what Destiny's Child are wearing.' And that irritated me.

"But I don't want to play down my image. I like to dress up and there's nothing wrong with that."
