Singer Beyonce Knowles says her "alter ego Sasha" - who is "too sassy, too sexy" - takes over when she is onstage.
"I become someone else when I'm onstage. I call that stage persona 'Sasha'. I wouldn't like Sasha if I met her offstage," pagesix.com quotes her as saying.
"She's too aggressive, too strong, too sassy, too sexy! I'm not like her in real life at all. I'm not flirtatious and super-confident and fearless like her. What I feel onstage, I don't feel anywhere else.
"It's an out-of-body experience. I created my stage persona so that when I go home, I don't have to think about what it is I do. Sasha isn't me. The people around me know who I really am," the singer said.
