Beyonce defends controversial advert

Beyonce has defended the advert for her perfume 'Heat'.

It was only allowed to be shown after a 7.30pm television watershed.

She told Cosmopolitan: 'I wasn't annoyed, I thought it was funny.

'Personally, I don't think my ad was anymore crazy, sexy than other ads out there- I loved it, despite what anyone else thought.'

She added: 'It was based on a really hot George Michael video and yes, it was sexy, but then you have to think about what you're doing.

'It was for my fragrance and I believe a wonderful fragrance brings out the sex appeal in a woman. I don't regret it'.
