Beyonce Knowles has been forced to stop attending church services in her Texas hometown, because she feels guilty about causing a frenzy whenever she turns up.
The R+B superstar, who was raised to be a devout Christian, insists she must now avoid her local church in Houston, Texas, because she hates drawing attention to herself and disrupting religious ceremonies.
She says, "I can't really go to church any more, which is a shame. People have come up to me in church during the sermon and, of course, people watch everything I do. They come up and take my picture on their mobile phones. They're very nice, but I think God understands if I miss Sunday service."
