picA leading Egyptologist has called pop star Beyonce Knowles a "stupid person" for her lack of interest and knowledge about ancient Egypt.

Historian Zahi Hawass, Egypt's chief Egyptologist, was annoyed by Knowles' ignorance as she toured the Giza pyramids near Cairo recently, reports contactmusic.com.

"I showed her the Sphinx and I gave her a book on King Tutankhamen. She's a stupid person and she doesn't understand a thing and she doesn't want to understand... She's coming here to take pictures and that's it," said Hawass.
