Actor Damon Wayans feels inadequate when he meets superstars like Prince and Michael Jackson because he worries his achievements pale in comparison to theirs. The Bamboozled star felt especially nervous when he found himself standing next to Prince at last month's (JUN06) Black Entertainment (BET) Awards, which he hosted. Wayans says, "Certain people I get nervous around, in a good way, like a fan. "Prince, MICHAEL JACKSON, Michael Jordan, these guys I'm so in awe of them and what they have accomplished, I just don't want them to look at me and say, 'Why are you here?'"

HAHAAAA At least Damon is honest. I believe that's secretly why alot of people in the music industry & Hollywood turned on Michael after those stupid allegations. Many of them never really liked Michael to begin with & secretly envied his success. He probably made A LOT of people in the industry feel inadequate.

I understand what he is saying, but I don't think he should compare himself to singers, dancers or basketball players. He should compare himself to other actors/ comedian's success. I don't think he would feel intimidated with Jim Carrey, Martin Lawrence or even Jamie fox or Jerry Seinfeld.
