Beyonce Knowles seems to have left two very different impressions on British pop star Cheryl Cole and R&B singer Teyana Taylor.
Cole, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter, recalled meeting Knowles while backstage at the "X Factor" singing competition once. However, the singer revealed that it was an embarassing encounter that she does not wish to repeat.
"I haven't seen her since, but that's okay– that one time was enough for me," Cole said in a Metro U.K. report. "I totally embarrassed myself– I'm sure she doesn't want to see me again."
However, Taylor, 22, seems to have had a different experience with Knowles. She took to Instagram to let people know just how much the 31-year-old singer inspired her with kind words recently.
"Left the show in tears ... Had a lil heart to heart wit The Queen Bey after her show," Taylor wrote after attending Knowles' "Mrs. Carter World Tour" in Paris recently. "She told me how proud of me she was, & she knew i would be a star since the first time I taught her my Harlem moves lol. I told her im not impressed with me YET but my season is coming soon."
However, Taylor said Knowles did not let her second guess her own talent.
"She checked me and said 'ya season is NOW & When u stop worrying about what haters got to say, you'll start to notice that the RITE people are rooting for you," Taylor reminisced on Instagram. "'I am, I see you. I'm here for you whenever u need an ear'- Beyonce. I love you Bey thanks for all of ur kinds words."
Despite Cole's experience with the singer, she told MSN that she admires Knowles' ability to empower women.
"I love how Beyoncé is empowering as a woman," Cole told MSN recently. "She's positive and she's about sisterhood and that's quite rare these days I think."
