The 25-year-old star says her stage fright was the reason behind a tearful breakdown at the Radio One Teen Awards in London over the weekend, reports

“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,” said Perry.

“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,” she added.

Perry, who recently married British comedian Russell Brand, had previously admitted to being self-conscious. “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.”
