Bieber scared of darkness

Los Angeles: Singer Justin Bieber, 18, is so afraid of darkness that sometimes he sleeps with the lights on overnight.

"My hands sweat a lot, so do his. And his feet. They don`t smell. And he was afraid of the dark for most of his life," quoted Justin`s father Jeremy Bieber as saying.

However, Justin believes in god and prays everyday.

"God means a lot to me. I pray when I go to sleep. I pray during the day, when I have a problem or when I just want to thank him for all he`s done for me. Without god, I wouldn`t be in this position," said Justin.

"He has blessed me with the talent and the opportunity and everything. I feel like there`s also a reason I`m here," added the youngster, who is dating singer Selena Gomez.
