I am Taylor Swift. I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.

OK, Taylor Swift might not be self-affirming to that level, but the songstress did reportedly reveal that she prepares for performances by talking to herself.

“I get pretty nervous,” she tells ShowbizSpy. “I kind of, like, go through — you know when you talk to yourself in the mirror? And I’m like, ‘They’re not going to throw things at you. It’s going to be OK. It’s going to be OK.’ It’s not like that; it’s more like, ‘Mmm … it’s going to be OK?’”

But she doesn’t need to pump her confidence up every time, the 22-year-old clarified.

“I don’t get nervous when I’m going on stage and a crowd of people have bought tickets to see me because I’m like, ‘You guys totally want to be here.’ It’s when I’m not sure if people want me to be onstage.”

Taylor, your albums go anywhere from three to six-times platinum, so we’d venture that there’s hardly anyone who wouldn’t want you onstage.
