What Are Celebs Afraid Of? People Apparantly Give A Crap.

    The joke (that many people have missed) about the 20 Things columns we do on EgoTV is that they are based on the idea that fans are obsessed with every single bit of information about a celeb. So for fun, we make it up. Articles like this prove the point that people have to calm down about caring so much about the lives of celebrities.

    Nicki Minaj ‘hates’ escalators and other weird celeb tales…

    While many of us actually prefer an escalator to trudging up the stairs (we’re lazy, yeah we know it), it seems Nicki Minaj isn’t a fan of big shiny moving steps. The singer was at a sports event when she pulled out all the stops to keep away from the escalators – causing the New York Post to even suggest she has a big fear of the things.

    New York Post breaking the hot stories! Also going out on a limb. “Minaj wouldn’t go on an escalator. There must be something to the story. To our typewriters!”

    Anyway, we thought we’d use this opportunity to investigate what other weird phobias the rich and famous have – because you know, it’s fun. Here’s what found: Apparently Madonna has a fear of thunder – a condition called brontophobia – no wonder she’s always travelling about avoiding England. Matthew McConaughey struggles with going into tunnels! Could this explain why he’s always topless on a huge spacious beach most of the time?

    I now have the fear that there is nothing better to talk about in the world. That is scary.

    And finally there’s lovely Johnny Depp, who says he’s afraid of clowns (clourophobia). He says, “There’s something about the painted face and the fake smile. There seems to be a darkness lurking under the surface, a potential for real evil.”
