Sexy singer Beyonce Knowles has adopted a bizarre method of dealing with stress - leaping from high places.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer was recently photographed jumping into the water off the bridge of a grand three-storey boat while on holiday on the Caribbean island of St Barts with boyfriend Jay-Z and actress KIM CATTRALL - and she admits her plunges have become regular occurrences.

She says, "I don't know what's wrong with me. I looked at the picture and said, 'That's really dumb.'

"I do it every year. That's my jump. It's a ritual. That's my 'let go, start over, this is a vacation and I'm-a be free'.

"I have to jump off something so I can let go of everything that happened before the last vacation and start over. It's like being baptised."
