Many "Beyonce sightings" happen while she's shopping, but the superstar said she loves the pastime too much to give it up because of the risk of an unflattering photo.
"I enjoy shopping but I hate trying on clothes," she told The Associated Press in a recent interview.

"Now women can buy their own diamonds," she said.
The Emporio Armani Diamonds fragrance will be in stores next month.
