Never mind ”Crazy in Love”: Beyoncé Knowles’ next single could well be titled ”Crazy in Pain.” Knowles tore a leg muscle Tuesday during dance rehearsals with her reunited group, Destiny’s Child, according to the Associated Press. Despite the injury to her left hamstring, Knowles is able to walk, and may be able to start dancing again in a week. But the injury could delay promotional plans, a Columbia Records spokesperson told AP.

Destiny’s Child are scheduled to release Destiny Fulfilled, their first album since 2001’s Survivor, on Nov. 16; their new single ”Lose My Breath” has already hit radio. The group are planning a tour next year. But Knowles, who found solo success last year, has plenty of plans of her own, including playing an ”international superstar” in the upcoming Pink Panther remake with Steve Martin. That should be a stretch.
