Barbra Streisand is a legendary singer. Unfortunately for her fans, she doesn’t often do live performances. The reason? She actually hates doing them. In part, she has stage fright, even after all of these years performing.

Another thing is that she doesn’t like to have dress fittings. Barbra said, “I don’t like (singing in public). It gives me the willies. … I said if I could just sit on a stool and sing, that I could do. But to have to have dress fittings, then I never change my clothes enough. I don’t want to have fittings. I don’t like fittings. … I don’t want to be a clown on a stage walking and everybody’s below me. It feels odd.”

She is about to release a new album featuring previously unreleased studio performances. She also finished her memoir.
