Video: Shawn Johnson Talks About Fear to RadarOnline

Shawn Johnson, the 17-year-old Olympic superstar besieged by a stalker last week, told she’s only fears one thing in the competition– dancing.

Johnson told that she has gradually overcome her fears in regards to trip-ups and missteps on the ballroom floor.

The Olympian might have been a little off her game on Dancing With The Stars Monday night, receiving a decent 25-point score for her Lindy Hop with partner Mark Ballas, the teen, who looked to be gaining steam last week, was outdone by competitors Gilles Marini, Melissa Rycroft and Lil’ Kim.

Her partner Ballas — a third-generation dancer with almost 20 years experience — said he has definitely seen a smooth transformation from the balance beams to the ballroom as the teen continues learning her craft as a dancer.

Still, gives the kid credit for keeping her poise — and smile — through some of the different trials that come with fame and stardom.
