Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 237) – Adele

Adele - English Singer and Songwriter

Adele – English Singer and Songwriter

“I’m scared of audiences. I get shitty scared. One show in Amsterdam, I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I’ve thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels, I projectile-vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. …

“My nerves don’t really settle until I’m offstage. I mean, the thought of someone spending $20 to come and see me and saying ‘Oh, I prefer the record and she’s completely shattered the illusion’ really upsets me. It’s such a big deal that people come give me their time.”

— Adele
