Singer Beyonce is the celebrity with the best body in the eyes of British women.

Channel 4’s Top 50 pop videos was generally rubbish — Robbie’s Rock DJ a better promo than Bittersweet Symphony?

Jamiroquai’s special FX superior to Dylan’s sheer Dylan-ness?! — but the re-run of the incredible Single Ladies video did remind me what a stunning specimen of womanhood Beyonce really is.

This is the video which moved Kanye West to can his gentlemanly reputation once and for all by storming the MTV Awards stage when it didn’t win ‘best video’ to alert the audience to the injustice just as the actual winner Taylor Swift was gearing up for her timid little acceptance speech.

To be fair, when you watch it again, you can understand what possessed him. Is there a more thrillingly alive, indecently sexy dancer in pop music than Beyonce?

And she sings with true soul too, sweet and low, and wild and free.

Oh yeah, and she’s managed to nab herself a good-natured, smart, funny man who adores her.

Take note Carrie et al — this is the ideal 21st century lady.
