Beyonce Knowles has admitted she buys clothes which are too small for her to give her the extra motivation needed to lose weight
Beyonce Knowles buys clothes which are too small for her as a motivation to lose weight.
The singer-and-actress, who is famed for her curvy figure, admits it takes a lot of hard work for her to stay in shape so she needs to have a goal.
She said: "I buy something too small and then say, 'I have a reason.' I need to wear these jeans or this hot dress."
The 27-year-old beauty also says her dream of winning an Oscar drives her on when she is working out.
Talking about a painting in her gym which features the famous gold statue, she revealed: "I look at it, and I'm like, 'OK, I have to stay in shape.' "
Although she would like to lose a few pounds, Beyonce - who is married to hip-hop star Jay-Z - admits she wasn't happy when she shed 15lbs to play Deena Jones in 'Dreamgirls'.
She added to Self magazine: "I felt very chic, like a model. But it didn't look natural for me. I didn't feel very sexy or feminine, and I didn't have much confidence because I didn't feel like myself."
