Sexy singer Beyonce Knowles often wines with embarrassment when she reads over her own interviews - because she's so unimpressed with a lot of the things she says.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer, 22, admits there are often moments where she's not particularly thrilled to have to face questions from reporters - especially when she isn't thinking straight.

She says, "Sometimes I read certain interviews and I'm like, 'What c**p did I say?' I mean, I know I said it because I wasn't delirious. But I'm only human, and some things I've said I wish didn't get quoted. It is hard to function sometimes.

"But I have people around who support me, and my mother. I love my mom. She tells me the truth, and she's like, 'Girl, you need to calm down or put on some music and chill out.' We'll say a prayer or do different things to keep me calm, you know?"
