Bella Poarch opens up about anxiety and shyness: ‘I have the talent to turn that on and off’

There’s more to Bella Poarch than meets the eye.

In her guesting on the GMA News and Public Affairs showbiz podcast “Updated with Nelson Canlas,” the Filipina TikTok star and singer was asked about what she hopes people would know about her.

“One thing about me that a lot of people don't know is I'm a very anxious person,” she said.

In fact, Bella told Nelson that she was grateful to be talking to a Filipino and that it makes her feel comfortable.

“I've been talking the past two hours and I don't know why I'm surviving this right now,” she said.

“Not a lot of people know that I'm very anxious and very shy, and I feel like I have the talent to turn that on and off when I do my music videos or like performing," she added.

Bella said that interacting with people drains her and she needs a good night’s sleep to recharge.

“I'm gonna be really honest with you, whenever I interact with people for a whole week, I would need like a 12-hour sleep. Like it has to happen because like my batteries—everytime I talk to someone, my batteries just [get drained],” she said.

“So just making sure that you have a good [night’s] sleep, that would help a lot for sure," she added.

Talk about relatable!
