Wellington: Justin Bieber has revealed that he had a harrowing experience filming his latest video - because of his fear of sharks.
The 18-year-old pop superstar shot a video underwater with an all female synchronised swim team called the Aqualillies.
Also in the tank with Justin and the Aqualillies were zebra and bonnethead sharks.
Bieber took forever to dive into that scene.
"I`m terrified of sharks," Justin told ET Online.
"I was so scared. I hate sharks. It took, like, an hour for me to even jump in the water."
Fortunately the Aqualillies kept Bieber safe.
While girlfriend Selena Gomez wasn``t there to comfort him, the teenage heartthrob did feel better that there was a group of female dancers in the water.
"Being with the ladies under there kind of made it a lot better," Bieber said.
