"She also said that she would never mix a drug with alcohol, as it can lead to decreased heart activity. However, she doesn't mind a glass of champagne when she finishes a show."
Los Angeles, May 31 - Singer Katy Perry says she consumes Beta blockers - a drug that treats migraine, high blood pressure and anxiety - every time before going on stage to perform.

The 29-year-old said that she takes pills before getting on stage at her concerts because she doesn't want her nervousness to jeopardise her music career, reports contactmusic.com.

I have to take Beta blockers, I get so nervous. I think I have to get through this. I can't let these people down, but mostly I can't let myself down, said Perry.

I've been given a great opportunity and there are 500 bis behind me who will snatch my weave off my head if I don't kick-ball-change through this two-hour show. There is a lot of choice out there. All I'm trying to do is make great music, added the singer.

She also said that she would never mix a drug with alcohol, as it can lead to decreased heart activity. However, she doesn't mind a glass of champagne when she finishes a show.

I always have one drink waiting for me when I get off stage - a glass of champagne, said Perry.
