    Beyoncé Movie Plans Slammed By South African Chief

    Singer-songwriter and occasional actress Beyoncé Knowles has been criticised by a South African chief after it emerged the star was planning to make a movie based on the life of a South African woman who was sold into slavery and exhibited in a freak show in the 19th century, calling the project: “a mistake of great magnitude”. The Sun originally reported the Destiny’s Child singer was planning a biopic about Saartjie Baartman, a KhoiKhoi woman noted for her “large buttocks” and unusual colouring, who was forced into performing across Europe under the name of Hottentot Venus. Knowles is rumoured to be writing, directing, and starring in the movie.
