London: Beyonce has spent a whopping 9,000 pounds in a 90-minute shopping spree at Oxford Street.

The 29-year-old singer has splashed 5,000 pounds in London`s Topshop store before moving on to Selfridges, where she added another 4,000 pound to her clothing bill, reported Sun online.

"It was like that shopping scene out of the film `Pretty Woman`.

"Everyone was gobsmacked by the speed she was choosing clothes. When she hit the shoe section she picked up even more speed. The woman clearly loves footwear," said a source.

The `Run the World` hitmaker had earlier shelled out a huge amount on 25 pairs of designer shoes as a 25th birthday gift for her sister Solange.

She has also treated her rapper husband Jay-Z to a USD 2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport car, which is tauted as the world`s fastest road vehicle, on his 41st birthday last year.
