Mark Ronson is seeking psychiatric help after revealing that he suffers from “crippling anxiety” every time he prepares to hit the stage.
The Sun reports that the musician and producer – who has previously worked with the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs and Lily Allen – gets so nervous that he has to sit in a corner and block out anyone who tries to communicate with him.
Recently, he told the crowd about his situation at a Youth Forum in the East London town of Hackney.
“I literally have to sit in a room in a corner by myself,” he described. “No one can talk to me and I’m shaking.”
The 37-year-old is an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, which helps young people move into work, education or training.
