BEYONCE Knowles hates being in large crowds - they cause her to shut down. The Halo hitmaker admits she isnt comfortable when shes surrounded by lots of people. I didnt go to regular school. I went to private school, then I was home-schooled because I was travelling with Destinys Child, said the singer. I didnt have a normal social life, and sometimes I think its why Im insecure around a large group of people. I shut down a bit. People expect me to be what they see on stage, but thats not who I am in real life. She added, I know some people worry people wont want to date you because youre famous, but I wasnt scared of that because I feel I have way more to offer than just being famous. I think that once people meet me and get to know me, you forget that Im famous. -SS
