Katy Perry still nervous in front of large crowds
Katy Perry still gets nervous performing in front of large crowds.
Despite being one of the world's most successful female singers, the 25-year-old star admits she is sometimes overcome with nerves and says her stage fright was the reason behind a tearful breakdown at the Radio 1 Teen Awards in London over the weekend.
Speaking about her highly charged performance of 'Firework' at the event, Katy told the Daily Star newspaper: "I was emotional before I sang 'Firework.' I got chills and butterflies - it's a huge adrenaline rush. All the hairs stick up on my body and sometimes I don't even have to sing because the crowds sing it louder.
"I still feel nervous performing to crowds. It's not that I don't feel ready but I worry that they'll rush the stage as they're all screaming my name or I feel like a wanna yack!"
This is not the first time Katy has admitted her nerves, and she had previously admitted to being particularly self-conscious.
She explained: "Even the most confident people still have their moments of insecurity. And even though I may come across as loud and bubbly and brimming with confidence, I can be a shy girl too."Posted on 16 Nov 2010 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
