We hear it all the time “they’re just human”, but some of us still choose not the believe it. We want to think that a celebrity’s life is so much better than ours because they have tons of fans – even know we know how annoying having random people run up to you can be, and they have tons of money – even though we all know the phrase “money doesn’t buy happiness”.Β 

So, at the end of the day, celebrities are human just like all of us and stage fright or performance anxiety isn’t something that goes away with time. Of course, some celebrities deal with it differently than others but it something that sticks with you and it doesn’t matter how famous you are or how good your music it. With no further ado, here is a list of the most popular A-list celebrities who suffer from stage fright.

Social phobia is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions because it is usually mistaken for shyness. Deep or crippling anxiety is one of the main signs of suffering from social anxiety and it is usually centered around what others think about you and wanting others to think positively about you.

Stage fright is one of the most severe problems for musicians and public speaker; a study found that 24% of musician see stage fright as a slight problem while 16% see it as a severe problem. Females were 2.5 times more likely to hyper-ventiliate before a performance with 48.5% of women hyper-ventiliating before a performance versus 19.7% of men.
