The 28-year-old Girls Aloud star admits that although it might look glamorous, in truth it`s far from it.
She explained: "For the record, it`s terrifying. We once had this nightmare where my dress ripped here, somebody was sewing here, my nail had just chipped so somebody was painting them.
"Then I walked out, tripped in the middle of the corridor, grabbed the security guy and tore all my nail polish off. I had burgundy nail polish all down my white dress. So I said, `Wait until I figure out how I am going to manoeuvre this handbag so that my nails are covered`.
"So, that`s how I walked down the carpet. It was absolute pandemonium. Anyone who says that they love red carpets is lying. Getting dressed up is the best part. And champagne after the event - that`s even better."
Despite her successful solo career and a stint as a judge on `The X Factor`, Cheryl insists she still sees herself as just a regular girl from Newcastle.
She told Stylist magazine: "I still feel like that little girl. That`s the weirdest thing for me especially when I`m out in America and people are like, `So what`s your background, where you from?` When I tell them, they find it difficult to believe that I`m from a council estate. They`re like, `No way!`
"In my mind I`m still that person. But to them I`m a pop star, it really is the strangest feeling." Having finally joined twitter last year, the `3 Words` hitmaker says it has helped her become more familiar with her fans.
She said: "I just feel like they know me and I know them, especially now with twitter. Is that weird?
"I did a signing two days ago where I get to see them one-on-one and I was asking them so many questions. They were laughing at me saying it was like I was interviewing them but I want to make sure I really know them."
