Pop beauty Beyonce Knowles likes to indulge herself backstage - by ironing.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer - girlfriend of rapper JAY-Z - arranges for an iron and ironing board to be at every venue she performs at.

And the 22-year-old also requests a clothes rack to hang her clothes on, two bars of soap and Earl Grey tea.

A source says, "Although she's a multi-millionaire and is only 22 there is no sign of champagne, exotic food or wild parties when she's on the road.

"She just gets down to ironing her clothes and keeping a low profile before going on stage for two hours every night."
