She made the shock admission in a recent interview with The Herald Sun, saying: ‘I always have had stage fright; not enough to not to do it but always enough that causes a certain amount of turmoil.’

Despite the anxiety that performing causes her, Cher said that she has been able to use it to her advantage. 

‘If you harness it (the stage fright), it works for you,’ she explained.
