Earlier this week, The Sun reported that Beyoncé had “bot her eyes” (sic) on an Oscar with a film she is penning “about lady with giant rear”.
It was supposedly a biopic of Saartjie Baartman, a Khoikhoi women who, due to her large buttocks, was exhibited as a freak show attraction in 19th-century.
The rumour spread around the internet, but has since been denied by Beyoncé’s people.
“Beyoncé is not connected to the project, a rep told Independent.co.uk, “this is an important story that should be told, however.”
Did The Sun have a dodgy source? Or did it just link her to the supposed script because she is famous for having a curvaceous posterior? We’ll never know.
Beyoncé has yet to write a feature film, though she has starred in several including Dreamgirls and Austin Powers in Goldmember.
Her husband Jay Z has dipped into film production meanwhile, serving as a producer on Annie, The Great Gatsby and more.
