Queen B has her sights on winning an Oscar.

Beyonce reportedly has plans on writing and starring in her own movie about Saartjie Baartman, a South African woman who was displayed in a London "freak show" during the 1800s because of her "large behind".

According to The Sun, the RnB superstar has teamed up with acting coaches and writers to bring Baartman’s story to life. Baartman was involved in a court case during her time as a performer where she was forced to display her body against her will. These are the moments of her life that Beyonce plans to bring out on the big screen.

Sources say Beyoncé wants to be taken seriously as an actress and believes that writing a screenplay and taking on the leading role will allow her to gain the respect of the film industry.
