Beyonce - Beyonce wants Epic powers

Beyonce wishes she had the powers of her 'Epic' character.

The 31-year-old singer - who has 16-month-old daughter Blue Ivy with husband Jay-Z - voices Queen Tara in the upcoming animated film, which follows a group of warriors ruled by a good queen in the forest, and loves how much she has in common with her down-to-earth role.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''It's a smart way to make children aware of the planet. I love Queen Tara. She's glamorous, graceful and powerful - I wish I had her powers - and will do anything to protect the people she loves.

''But she doesn't take herself too seriously. I like that. Yes, she's this powerful figure but at the end of the day she's like, 'It's just me.' I can relate to that.''

Beyonce - who is rumoured to be pregnant with her second child - recently recalled she was overcome with emotion and nostalgia when reciting her lines for one particular scene in the movie.

She explained: ''There's a young girl who admires Queen Tara and wants to be like her, and her mom is like, 'Uh, baby, she's the Queen, I don't know if you'll ever be the Queen.'

''I don't want to give the plot away but let's just say that's not the last you see of that girl ... I cried tears when I did that scene. It was the first thing I did professionally after I gave birth to my daughter.

''I really wanted to do this film to send her a message that she could be anything she wanted to be, it was an incredible experience as I was filled with emotion and hormones anyway, and here I was filming an incident that happened in my life.''
