Superstar singer Beyonce Knowles is finding life in the spotlight increasingly hard to cope with - because she fears becoming addicted to fame.

The Crazy In Love beauty has been the focus of a media frenzy since she launched her solo career last year (03) and her high profile romance with rapper Jay-Z has bought her even more attention.

So sensible Beyonce is already preparing herself for the day when her star fades, by ensuring she keeps her feet on the ground.

She explains, "I don't want to get addicted to fame. Then when I'm no longer famous I won't know what to do, and I'll just seem desperate and lose my mind."
