"I admire Beyonce a lot because she is an amazing performer and more than anything, she balances her personal and professional life very well," Priyanka said here.
"She has a child, and at the same time, her professional life also, which is amazing! That's the kind of a person I would like to be - who can balance both personal and professional life together," she added.
Priyanka, who is charting her own singing career after becoming a successful actress, says it was her late father, who always wanted her to be a singer.
The 31-year-old has already launched two international singles - "In my city" and "Exotic".
But it was a well-timed decision to get into the singing field, she believes.
"In the beginning of my career, I never knew acting. I have learnt everything in my career itself. When you have gone to acting school, when you are in the film industry, there is some familiarity, but I didn't have these familiarities.
"So it took some time and when I reached somewhere, I got this opportunity of music and that time I was little more comfortable in films and my dad really wanted me to do it," Priyanka said.
