'It was for my fragrance and I believe a wonderful fragrance brings out the sex appeal in a woman,' the singer defends her decision to make a steamy ad.
Beyonce Knowles has defended her controversial perfume commercials after they were deemed too sexy for U.K. TV, insisting she has no regrets over the advertisements. The steamy clip for Beyonce's Heat fragrance, which features the singer lying in a bathtub and seductively stroking her chest, was banned by officials at the Advertising Standards Authority in November.
But the "Crazy in Love" hitmaker is unfazed by viewers' complaints, admitting she found the furore "funny". She tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I wasn't annoyed, I thought it was funny. Personally, I don't think my ad was any more crazy sexy than other ads out there - I loved it, despite whatever anyone else thought."
"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. That was what I was trying to express. I don't regret it."
