LOS ANGELES - Britney Spears has revealed she "almost drowned" after being hit by huge "six-foot waves" while on holiday in Hawaii recently.

The Make Me hitmaker was enjoying the beautiful sea in Hawaii when she found herself unable to breathe after being dragged under huge "six-foot waves".

Recalling the scary event, she said, "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. 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."

In her interview with Scott Mills for his BBC Radio 1 show, the 34-year-old singer also opened up about the music industry, admitting there are a lot of "divas" in the business.

Speaking in an interview, which will air today, she added, "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."

Meanwhile, Britney, who has Sean, 10, and Jayden, nine, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, previously revealed her new album Glory is "very chill".

She shared, "It's very exciting. I've been working on this project for a year and a half now, almost two years so it really means a lot to me. It's my baby. It's a little melodic, a little more not so poppy.

"It's kind of chill. Very chill. I'm old school. I like classic rock. I like the Rolling Stones. The Lumineers are really cool. Sade is nice. I like 80s music, too."
