Beyonce Knowles says she is a boring drunk.

The 'Single Ladies' singer - who is married to rapper Jay Z - enjoys a glass of wine occasionally, but has a tendency to fall asleep if she has too much alcohol.

She said: "Well, I don't drink often. But when I'm drunk, I'm very quiet and I observe and I go to sleep. I don't think I'm much fun."

The 27-year-old star also insists she has never been interested in taking drugs.

Beyonce added: "I always said I would never do it. I've never seen a person who was high and thought, 'Wow, I want to do that!' I'm like, 'That's cool for them, but no thank you. I'll just have my wine.' "

The 'Bootylicious' singer - who has an alter-ego she calls Sasha - often feels people are watching her when she goes to a club to see if she can replicate her high-energy dance routines.

She explained to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "Sometimes I'll dance, but I feel like at a party everyone expects me to be Sasha and go out there and run the dance floor."
