Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has outed himself as a big fan of Beyonce Knowles and The Sugababes.
With a cover of Girls Aloudâ€™s â€˜Love Machineâ€™ Turner has never been shy to show off his love of pop, but says heâ€™s particularly attracted to Beyonceâ€™s â€˜intellectâ€™.
He tells Q magazine, â€œI've always been a fan of Beyonce. I love her. She's got a bit up there, I reckon."
He adds that he also likes the look of â€œthe new oneâ€ from The Sugababes â€“ otherwise known as Amelle Berrabah.
â€œI quite like the newest one. Very impressed. In that Comic Relief song, the Run-DMC thing, she raised the bar in that,â€ he says, before mournfully admitting, â€œWe met them a couple of times but never chatted. We're dead shy."
