OUTKAST star ANDRE 3000 prefers intelligence to beauty - because he believes an intellectual girl will be better in bed.

The HEY YA! hitmaker, ex-boyfriend of singer Erykah Badu, insists a female with a good head on her shoulders will always capture his attention.

He says, "For sure, it's the brain I want. There's the chance that when she gets home and takes off those glasses, she'll release some pent-up emotions in the bedroom.

"If you are voom, voom, voom all day, then in the bedroom that voom, voom, voom won't be as special.

"At the bar you find the drunk girl. The bookstore is where you can find the brainy girl."
