Sexy singer Beyonce Knowles is flattered people often liken her to fellow star Jennifer Lopez - but wants to be known for her own merits.

The CRAZY IN LOVE stunner is carving out a career for herself as a solo artist and an actress, just like the JENNY FROM THE BLOCK beauty, but finds the compaisions slightly irritating.

She explains, "I know that I'm over a decade younger than her (Lopez), so it's flattering that I'm so young and people are comparing me to someone who has accomplished so much.

"But I don't think I'm like anyone else and really, I'd rather not be compared to anyone else."
