If you’re scared of getting on an escalator or coming in contact with a clown, just know you're not alone. You have a lot of support in Hollywood, in fact. Celebrities might appear perfectly made up, but they're definitely not as perfect as you think – or as fearless. Here are the strangest celebrity phobias.
The singer created quite a scene when she refused to get onto the escalator at the National Basketball Association in Los Angeles and instead decided to take the stairs. Despite many questions raised, no one yet knows the reason behind her escalaphobia.
