'I Kissed a Girl' singer Katy Perry - who is engaged to British heartthrob Russell Brand - has admitted she has ''moments of insecurity'' just like everyone else
Katy Perry has "moments of insecurity".
The 'I Kissed a Girl' singer - who is engaged to British comic Russell Brand - admits she is often shy and unsure of herself even though she has a huge pop career and famous fiance.
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."
However, the 25-year-old pop beauty - who is known for her skimpy outfits and energetic stage routines - fights through her insecurities for her fans.
She told more! magazine: "For me, I wrote a lot of my songs in my hot little apartment and I didn't think much of them - but then I started playing them in front of people and they were singing the songs back to me louder than I was singing them. It gives you goosebumps on your arms. It might sound cheesy, but I could swear that every artist would say that's the most validating thing. Everything I do, I know it is for the fans and they are the reason why I exist."
Katy - who is currently working a new album, due to be released later this year - recently admitted she was thrilled with how 2010 is panning out for her.
She added: "Being in the studio again and making this new album is really great, and then to get the Grammy nomination while I was writing it was a really lovely boost of confidence and encouragement and then of course there's my engagement! So yes, I would say it's all going pretty well."
