Monday , 08 September 2008

BEYONCE KNOWLES has been piling on the pounds for a new movie role.

The usually uber-toned singer has deliberately gained weight to play jazz and blues great ETTA JAMES in new movie Cadillac Records.

The curvaceous singer has reportedly gained 20 pounds (9kg) for the role and was sporting a much fuller figure on stage at the Fashion Rocks event over the weekend.

Beyonce donned a sparkly gold catsuit for her duet with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and was visibly more rotund than usual, but still as stunning as ever. For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter
