Beyoncé: Gym is unsexy

Beyoncé Knowles likes working out, but doesn't want people to know when she is doing so.

The 32-year-old star takes working out seriously and does so regularly. That doesn't mean she wants to be snapped in a sweaty post-exercise state though, so has handed out some tips on keeping in shape the cunning way.

"When I'm on tour I dance two hours a night, so I don't need to work out. When I'm not on the road I try to work out regularly. I run about two-and-a-half miles on the treadmill and I have a trainer. But it's sexier when it doesn't look like you go to the gym," she told Very magazine.

Beyoncé's weight fluctuates like all women's and it's not something she gets too stressed about. Instead she has worked hard to accept her body, flaws and all, and wishes more females did the same.

"Confidence makes a woman sexy. Women should not get caught up in someone else's definition of beauty. We are too obsessed with what a perfect nose is, or perfect hair, but there is nothing more beautiful than loving yourself and being confident," she said.

Part of that means knowing what looks good on herself. There are certain trends Beyoncé would never wear because she knows they'd do nothing for her figure.

"I try to accentuate my waist. I know things that are too loose underneath my hips are not good, because I look really boxy. Plunging necks look good on me. My legs are curved and look longer in straight leg jeans. Tops either have to be short to show off my midriff, or long. I can't do in between," she explained.
