Washington: Singer Beyonce Knowles, who values female friendships, has said that she doesn`t understand women who don`t have friends and is thus afraid of them.

"When women don`t have friends, I`m afraid of them,” Contactmusic quoted Beyonce, who is also an advocate of female empowerment - as telling Style magazine.

“I grew up around women, I believe that we can teach each other so much.

I`m always thinking about how unselfish we are and the things we need to hear and how much pressure there is being a woman.

"I try to write songs that will bring out the best in all of us and keep us close together,” she added.
