The 26-year-old multi-Grammy-winning star was so nervous before a recent UK performance, she required the services of a life coach, reported Daily Mirror.
The beauty enrolled for sessions with psychologist Natalie Thomas ahead of her performance at London's Westfield Stratford City, for which she was paid a cool 500,000 pounds.
Natalie, whose website describes her as an 'award-winning life coach, enabling you to boost your confidence and achieve your dreams', said she counselled the seemingly fearless singer at a Dove-hosted lecture entitled Is Beauty a State of Mind at Selfridges in Central London.
Rihanna has previously discussed about her low self-confidence issues in an interview.
"My way probably won't work for most people but the more I got naked the more comfortable I got. I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you are uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it you feel like everybody can see what you see," she had said.
