London, Oct 24 : Aussie singer Katie Melua loves to take part in extreme sports.
The 24-year-old singer took a brake from her European tour, and chose to spend time swimming with sharks.
"It was non-stop craziness - including two days of diving," British tabloid The Sun quoted her as saying.
"The first day was in an aquarium and the second day was in the sea with dangerous sharks off South Africa.
"That was cool," she added.
Melua recently released her new album The Katie Melua Collection, which also marked the conclusion of her song-writing partnership with mentor Mike Batt.
However, he will continue as her manager and label boss.
Melua has also started planning her fourth album of original tracks.
"Mike is such a huge figure in my work, in some ways I think he will be irreplaceable, but he has to be replaced by something or someone," she said.
"I definitely need a new producer but in terms of writing I'm going to try to do it on my own. Co-writing only works if you meet someone who really inspires you," she added.
