Soulful singer with social phobia
Coping with social phobia
Dealing with social phobia can be a hindrance on British singer Adele causing her to have severe stage frights, "anxiety attacks, [and] constant panicking on stage". Because of her social phobia she refrains from doing festivals because the size of audience frightens her. One thing that has aided her immensely was meeting Beyoncé. She was in a full-blown anxiety attack before meeting Queen Be but once she came in telling Adele, "You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God." She was at ease. "When she later found herself on a balcony, crying hysterically, Adele asked herself, ‘What would [Beyoncé's alter ego] Sasha Fierce do?'" Once asking herself that question she reflected, dried her tears, and created her alter ego that would give her strength in life.
