Ang basketball superstar na si Kobe Bryant, ang tennis player na si Serena Williams, at ang Pinoy boxing champ na si Manny Pacquiao ang favorite athletes ng famous singer na si Beyonce Knowles.
Sa interview kay Beyonce ni Hannah Storm para sa ESPN, sinabi ni Beyonce ang mga katangian nina Kobe, Serena, at Manny na nagustuhan niya.
On Kobe Bryant: "I definitely identify with Kobe Bryant as far as his work ethic... I can always see that he's focused, he works harder than I could ever imagine. It is like he's in the zone. He's just undeniable as far as his talent and his gift."
On Serena Williams: "Definitely, Serena. She just transforms because when you speak to her and she's not working, she's a most lovely, gentle, sweet, beautiful woman, and she is ferocious when she gets out there... I love it! You cannot talk to her. She's in the zone!"
On Manny Pacquiao: "Even Pacquiao, I love him because I really relate to people who were born to do something and gets lost in the moment. When he gets in the ring, he's a beast! I love it! And he shows you can have humility and be a calm person and also be driven when it's time and be a fighter."
Ipinalabas sa ESPN kahapon, November 25, Thanksgiving Day, sa U.S. ang one-on-one interview ni Hannah kay Beyonce.
Part-owner ng NBA team na New Jersey Nets ang asawa ni Beyonce na si Jay-Z kaya nagpaunlak siya na magpainterbyu sa ESPN tungkol sa kanyang favorite athletes.
