Beyonce Knowles hit back at claims she is homophobic in style on Saturday (13DEC03) - by performing a surprise concert alongside drag queens at a gay club.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer, 22, stunned revellers at New York City's ROXY nightclub by jumping on stage to join her drag queen double.

She then performed a 15-minute set which ended with four more drag queens joining her before bidding farewell to her audience, telling them, "I love you."

Compere, QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY star Carson Kressley, gushes, "The girl can dance in heels! She stood so close to the stage, touching everybody and acknowledging their presence."

Beyonce was recently accused of homophobia, after comments she made about the kiss Britney Spears and MADONNA shared at August's (03) MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS were reportedly taken out of context.
