Singer Britney Spears says she almost drowned after being sucked under by a wave in the sea in Hawaii.

The “Make me” hitmaker was enjoying the sea when she found herself unable to breathe after being dragged under huge six-foot waves, reports

“I went out and I thought it was like a wave pool, and I was like, This is so nice and refreshing and just beautiful. But the thing I didn’t think about is when you come back, the waves really come in hard. I got sucked under for like five minutes. I almost drowned,” Spears said during an interview for a radio station.

“And I’m like, ‘Where is my security’ They’re just going to let me die here’. And then I came in again and another wave took me under,” she added.

The 34-year-old also opened up about the music industry, and said: “A lot of the people in the entertainment business, if you try to work with them or set up projects, a lot of times people just don’t show up. A lot of people are divas in this industry. It’s hard.”
