Britney Spears Recounts the OMG Moment She Got Caught in '6-Foot Waves' in Hawaii
"I got sucked under for, like, five minutes," Britney Spears told BBC Radio 1 host DJ Scott Mills
On Wednesday, the "Make Me" singer, 34, playfully recounted a story to BBC Radio 1 about how she “almost drowned” in the Pacific Ocean while vacationing in Hawaii earlier this summer.
“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,'” she told host DJ Scott Mills in an interview. “But the thing I didn’t think about is when you come back, the waves really come in hard.”
The soothing getaway turned scary when she found herself sucked under the ocean by powerful “6-foot waves.”
“I got sucked under for, like, five minutes. I literally almost drowned. And I’m like, where is my security? They’re just going to let me die here?” Spears recalled. “And then I came in again and another wave took me under.”
When Spears finds down-time during her Piece of Me Las Vegas residency, she often jets off to the islands for a fun trip of fun in the sun with her two children – Sean Preston, 10, and Jayden James, 9.
