8 Black Celebrities You Wouldn’t Believe Claim To Be Extremely Shy

The King of Pop was forced into the spotlight when he was a young child, and his popularity only grew with time. Despite the way he managed to captivate audiences onstage, Jackson admitted to being very shy and was even known for his unusual attempts to remain hidden from the paparazzi when he was out in public.

Singer Christine Decroix once described Jackson as “a very sensitive and terribly shy man.”

“When he doesn’t know people, he doesn’t dare talk to them,” she said. “So in the first instance we can believe that he is rude, while he is quite the opposite.”

Many people would raise a brow at this. It seems impossible that the international pop star and modern-day feminist would be shy by any stretch of the imagination. As it turns out, however, Beyonce claims she had to come up with an alter ego, Sasha Fierce, just to be able to confidently make her way onto the stage. While she admitted that she isn’t as shy as she used to be, she says she still has a tendency to shut down and revert back to her shy ways in certain situations.

“I used to be very shy,” she once told designer Tom Ford. “I don’t think I’m shy anymore. I get really uncomfortable when I’m not performing on the stage or on a photo shoot and have too many people looking at me expecting a performance.”

She also added that she tends to “become shy and a bit intimidated when it’s a large group of people.”
