Pop icon Beyonce Knowles has never spoken about her level of sexual experience - because it's her own private business.

But the CRAZY IN LOVE singer denies reports she once said she doesn't believe in sex before marriage.

The 22-year-old says, "I never said it. I've never talked about that. Because I don't think that would be smart.

"For one, it's no one's business. For two, people never forget certain things that you said. And they don't allow you, once you say anything, to change. And I've always known that.

"So I've never talked about my sexual experiences. Or any lack of. Or anything. Because I just don't. And I never have because that's private."
