Cole star-struck by Beyonce

LONDON: Cheryl Cole has revealed she was left completely star-struck when she met Beyonce Knowles.

Cheryl Cole turned into a "fool" when she met Beyonce Knowles.

The Girls Aloud star - who has just released her first solo track 'Fight For This Love' - admits she acted like a star-struck fan when she was first introduced to the 'Sweet Dreams' singer.

Cheryl - who met Beyonce when she appeared on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' last year, on which Cheryl is a judge - said: "I turned into a fool when I saw Beyonce, I couldn't speak to her. I really embarrassed myself. When I saw Jay-Z the other week I did the same. I didn't know whether it was because I'd built it up in my head but when he approached me I started screaming Jay-Z and then turned my back on him."

Cheryl also revealed if she could only listen to one artist's music for the rest of her life she would pick songs by Beyonce - who is married to rapper Jay-Z.

She added in a live webchat on MySpace yesterday (22.10.09): "I think Beyonce would fulfil everything I'd need really. I love watching massive performances with pyrotechnics and dancers, but she can also give you those tender moments. "Beyonce is my favourite, but I've got a jukebox at my house and I put random things on. Music lifts your spirit and takes you to a good place."
