Destiny's Child beauty Beyonce Knowles is determined to raise her future children away from the damaging glare of the media spotlight.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer began her music career as a youngster after her father MATHEW gave up his job to fulfil his family's dreams of fame - but she's vowed to prevent her kids from following a similar ambition.

Knowles says, "I definitely would not want my kids to be entertainers.

"It's really hard. It's hard enough doing any kind of job and being a teenager. But being a teenager in the spotlight just heightens it."
