Beyonce - often the subject of many a gossip column - is now the subject of a university course at an American university.
Rutgers University in New Jersey is now offering a course called Politicising Beyonce, which uses the performer's career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.
The course will compare the analysis of the ‘Drunk in Love’ singer's music videos and lyrics with readings from black feminists.
Kevin Allred, a teacher of the subject, said the course will discuss "the extent of Beyonce’s control over her own aesthetic" and "whether her often half-naked body is empowered or stereotypical."
Rutgers University also has a class examining the theology of Bruce Springsteen's lyrics and Georgetown University has a class called The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z, focusing on Beyonce's rapper husband.
