Knowles Cites Destiny's Child Influence In Japan
BEYONCE KNOWLES credits her girl band DESTINY'S CHILD with influencing Japanese culture, by increasing women's self-respect.
The sexy singer, 23, views the group's 2000 anthem INDEPENDENT WOMEN PART 1 as an important influence in making Asian females "proud" of their jobs.
She explains, "This Japanese girl came to us and said, after Independent Women, that a lot of Japanese young ladies started being more proud to have their own jobs.
"Because before, they didn't, you know.
"That's culture we changed. In our own little way. A little bit."18/10/2004 09:22
