Jordyn Dore got an extra special gift for her 20th birthday - she got to spend the afternoon hanging out with Justin Bieber.
The Edith Cowan University nursing student was staying at Perth's Hyatt Regency hotel last weekend with her girlfriends to celebrate her birthday and couldn't believe it when she went up to the pool area on Sunday and found the teen pop superstar also hanging out with his crew.
Ms Dore, of Scarborough, didn't let her being star struck by Bieber stop her from sunbathing and chatting with the controversial 19-year-old.
She told The Weekend West that Bieber first approached her and even got cheeky by splashing water on her feet while she was sunbaking.
"I was just chilling at the pool and he was there with his security and he just came over and said 'hi'," she said.
"He came and introduced himself just as Justin."
Bieber posted a video of him interacting with Ms Dore on his Instagram account and photos of the pair have made international headlines.
The New York Daily Post made a splash with the photo and an accompanying headline that stated "Bieber chats up topless mystery blonde sunbathing in Australia".
"I was sunbathing and my top was still on but I hate getting tan lines," Ms Dore laughed when hearing about the headlines.
Ms Dore says it was nothing more than innocent fun and she was glad to have been able to have spent some time with the star and see what he is really like behind the headlines.
"The media hammer him, but I think they misunderstand him as a person. He is just growing up and anyone can make mistakes and you learn," she said.
"He was absolutely gorgeous to me. He didn't even make out like he was Justin Bieber, he was just Justin."
As for the reports this week that Bieber called a fan a "beached whale" during his time at the Hyatt, Ms Dore said she had met the woman who had made the allegations but never saw the girl she was talking about at the hotel and doubted the accusations.
"I met the lady that was quoted in the article and she told me about it but I didn't hear anything or even see the girl she was talking about," she said.
"I don't know if I believe it. He is just a nice, normal, cheeky 19-year-old boy and he literally is just a nice, lovely person."
Reports have also suggested anyone who mixes with Bieber are forced to sign a confidentiality agreement, but this wasn't the case for Ms Dore, who said the subject was never brought up.
"I wasn't asked and didn't sign anything," she said.
