Beyonce Knowles' new album shows a more personal side to the gorgeous pop star - showing off her intimate emotions for the first ever time.

The singer, who is reportedly romancing rapper Jay-Z, admits DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE is the first time she has expressed her feelings on private matters like love.

Beyonce, 21, says, "I feel like it's an evolution of a girl becoming a woman. Basically, it's really intimate and it shows a more vulnerable side of me.

"It talks about love and relationships and things I've never really talked about. I wanted people to know I am a human and I have feelings."
