Beyonce wants to create a boy band

Beyonce wants to reinvent herself as a music mogul by starting her own record label and creating a boy band.

The singer, whose husband Jay-Z co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records, wants to follow in her partner's footsteps by setting up her own music company and nurturing new talent, and among her ambitions is putting together an all-male pop group.

She tells the Associated Press, "I am starting my company, my label. I want to create a boy band. I want to continue to produce and do documentaries and music videos. I eventually want to start directing for other artists. Once I know that I have my stuff together and I trust that, I can do it for other artists.

"I see so many male artists building these empires and passing their knowledge on to other artists and development. I see myself doing the same thing and hopefully other younger artists when they grow up and they have been around for 15, 20 years, they can do the same thing."
