Los Angeles: Singer Beyonce Knowles says being pregnant has made her hate the smell of her husband Jay-Z.

The 30-year-old singer-and-actress is currently expecting her first child with spouse and says pregnancy is affecting her sense of smell so she can no longer stand the fragrance the hip-hop superstar wears, reported a weekly.

"Oh I smell things differently! My nose is like, 'doot, doot, doot'! I smell everything! It enhances it. If it smells bad, I smell it! My husband's fragrance, his one that I always love, I hate right now. So, thank God I love this one," she said.

While pregnancy is playing havoc with her senses, Knowles recently said that she feels there is nothing more empowering than being pregnant.

"It is the most powerful creation for you to be able to have life growing inside of you. There is no bigger gift, nothing more empowering.

"You can have goals and dreams and you can grow and be strong and have your strong opinions, and all of these things bring that out in you," she said.
