5 Stars Overwhelmed By Their Own Success

Shocked by their own stardom, these 5 celebrities have commented that their own success has come as a surprise and they often feel overwhelmed by it all. Thrilled to be in their position, these stars often pause to think about their fame and are so amazed by their journey that they even find it overwhelming at times.

Ariana Grande


Ariana is amazed by the attention she is getting but wants it to continue: ”There is so much attention on me that there wasn’t before. I’ve been so overwhelmed. But I would love to never stop.”


Ashanti was shocked when she finally made it: “It was kind of overwhelming. I never really got a chance to sit down and soak it all in until probably the end of that year (02), the beginning of the following year (03), because it was so much, so fast. And with me, personally in my life, I’ve had a lot of let downs via my first two record deals – it would have to take a lot to convince me, so it took a while for it to kind of sink in. But when it did sink in, it was a wonderful feeling.”


Beyonce admits it often overwhelms her: “Sometimes its overwhelming. Why did God give me my talent, my gift, my family. But I know you’re not supposed to question God. Only God knows. And I don’t take it for granted.”

Louis Tomlinson

Louis is surprised by One Direction’s huge success and has to pause to take it in: “Sat thinking about everything and I’m so incredibly overwhelmed by our success. We really can’t thank you enough!”

Selena Gomez

Selena needs her friends and family to support her: “Obviously it’s an overwhelming business, especially for those of us who have been in it since we were very young and have grown up with it. But you just have to make sure you have good friends around you and your family there to support you. It’s important to have that support system around you to help you cope.”
