London: Singer Cheryl Cole has revealed that she used to be obsessed with actress-singer Beyonce Knowles.
The "3 Word" singer has admitted that she admired the pop sensation and even gave herself a horrendous hairstyle in a bid to look more like her idol, reports a news website.
"I was obsessed with Beyonce. I remember seeing the video for `Bills, Bills, Bills` and just going, `Oh my God, who is this girl? I want my hair like hers.` I literally went out and got my hair bleached peroxide blonde. It took eight hours and it looked horrendous," she said.
"She`s just a star. She`s just got it. She`s everything a woman should be and everything you should want to be as a woman. But I did not know that at the time," she added.
Cole, 26, was so taken up by the singer that she even copied the eccentric outfits Beyonce wore with her girl band Destiny`s Child.
"It was cool. I always wanted that urban, baggy jeans look. I`d cut things up and experiment, it always went dreadfully wrong. And then you hit a point where you think I won`t do that again. I can`t wear that again," Cole concluded.
