Britney Spears’ security team has a very important job.
Every day, they have to protect a literal angel from falling into harm’s way, and for the most part, they seem to do a pretty good job at it.
But seriously. They had better be fired right now. During an interview with DJ Scott Mills, Spears recounted a terrifying near-death experience: She almost drowned while she was on vacation in Hawaii earlier this summer.
It’s no secret that Spears loves the Aloha state. She spends plenty of time there with her two boys between appearances in her “Piece of Me” Las Vegas residency. But this time, a normal trip to the beach took a scary turn when she found herself trapped out in the water by “6-foot waves.”
“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 said. “But the thing I didn’t think about is when you come back, the waves really come in hard.”
She continued, “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?’ And then I came in again, and another wave took me under.”
Thankfully Spears made it back to shore in one piece and, hopefully, gave that security team the ax on the spot. Can you imagine a world without Britney Spears? That’s a world I don’t want to live in.
Would you have been able to stay as calm as Britney Spears if you were being pulled out to sea by waves?
