Beyoncé's race-y music
13:30 22 September 2006
Beyoncé Knowles has sparked controversy by saying she only makes records for black people.
Since the 'Déj Vu' singer made the astonishing statement sales of her new album, 'B'Day', have fallen by 70 per cent in the US.
Beyoncé, 25, said in an interview with Blender magazine: "I make black records. I write records like I speak, and I don't try to change my songs so everyone else likes them."
The singer has also admitted she can relate to celebrities who attack the paparazzi.
Beyoncé said: "It must be really scary to have your children in front of all these people. That's your kids. That's when Mama Knowles is going to be punching some photographers!"
Meanwhile, Beyoncé's name was booed at the MOBO awards in London on Wednesday night (20.09.06) when she failed to turn up to collect three prizes.
The 'Crazy In Love' singer received the most awards after her single 'Déj Vu' won the Best Song and Best Video categories and she was named Best International Female at the ceremony - which recognises music of black origin.
