London: Singer Beyonce Knowles has defended her controversial perfume commercial after it was deemed too sexy for television, insisting she has no regrets over the advertisements.

The clip of Beyonce`s Heat fragrance, which features the singer lying in a bathtub and seductively stroking her chest, was banned by officials at the Advertising Standards Authority last year.

"I wasn`t annoyed, I thought it was funny. Personally, I don`t think my ad was any more crazy sexy than other ads out there - I loved it, despite whatever anyone else thought," quoted her as saying.

"It was based on a really hot George Michael video and yes, it was sexy, but then you have to think about what you`re doing," she said.

"It was for my fragrance and I believe a wonderful fragrance brings out the sex appeal in a woman. That was what I was trying to express. I don`t regret it," she said.
