Beyonce Shills For Rhythm Heaven, Loves Guitar Hero

Nintendo's latest spokesceleb? Beyonce! She's hopefully going to sell millions of copies of the extremely bootylicious Rhythm Heaven when it comes stateside by kicking back with her Nintendo DSi and having fun on-screen.

Beyonce's celebrity endorsement of the Nintendo DS certainly isn't the first. She joins other professional famous people like Nicole Kidman, Liv Tyler and Patrick Stewart in convincing non-gamers that they too should upgrade to the camera-equipped DSi.

Ms. Knowles tells Entertainment Weekly that she's an old-school Nintendo fan, raised on Super Mario Bros. and the NES. Beyonce even claims to have a non-contractual interest in video games, with tastes ranging from Guitar Hero on the Wii to Brickbreaker on the Blackberry to the Shin Megami Tensei series. Yes, I did make that last one up.
