Racy requests! Sexy texts between 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft and his mistress have been released — and as it turns out, Kroft isn't much of a Beyonce fan.

The New York Post published intimate messages between Kroft and New York lawyer Lisan Goines on Saturday, Jan. 31. In one specific comment, he requested that she not doll up like the "Drunk in Love" superstar.

"Dress in Washington is either professional or Laura Bush," Kroft, 69, sent Goines back in September 2011. "Don't dress like Beyonce." In December 2013, he texted: "How are you doing. Loved the snap. How did you do it. Can I see the outtakes."

According to Page Six, Kroft also received lingerie photos from Goines and boasted about his friendship with President Barack Obama, whom he called "Barry."

Kroft came clean about his three-year affair earlier this month. "I had an extramarital affair," he told Page Six in a statement on Jan. 7. "That was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret. My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter." (Kroft and his wife Jennet Conant married in 1991, and share one son.)

"This was a personal failure, not a professional one," Kroft continued in his statement. "[It] had no impact whatsoever on my job as a journalist.
