Super famous singer and actress, Beyonce has reportedly hired a team to help her work on a gritty movie in order to win her first Oscar Academy award.
The mother of one is looking to tell the story of a slave woman, Saartjie Baartman, who was exhibited in London freak shows because of the size of her bum.
Baartman was a South African slave who died at the age of 25 after being sold to a Scottish doctor in the 1800s.
The doctor was responsible for placing her on a London show because of the shape of her body.
Her stage name was Hottenot Venus.
She went to court after it was argued that she had been made to perform against her will by her master, but eventually claimed she performed on her own free will.
A Hollywood source told The Sun: “Beyonce is desperate to be taken seriously as an actress. Even though she’s had a string of well-received movies, she still feels her breakthrough is yet to come.”
Beyonce has starred in several movies including the award-winning Dream Girls, Austin Powers, and Obsessed.
