Beyonce Knowles is a superstar, no doubt about it. She's a multi-platinum pop artist, she's got the No. 1 movie in America out now and, since Monday, she's been guest starring as Shine, a singer in a girl group, in the Nickelodeon animated show Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Her week of "appearances" ends Friday with an hour-long Wubbzy movie at 1 p.m. ET on Nick. It will air again in primetime on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon's Noggin.
Beyonce has a nephew Daniel who is four and she says that with her role on Wubbzy! she was finally able to impress him. "(To him) It doesn't matter who I meet—even President Obama! He's not Wubbzy to my nephew, so this is like the coolest thing in the world to him."
The underlying lesson in this week of Wubbzy! is to yourself be true. (Click here and you'll see what I mean.) Beyonce underscores that. "We are all different," she says. "Once you get a little bit older those things that were different about you you realize that’s what makes you so amazing."
