The 'Boyfriend' singer jokes that the Girls Aloud star is not too old for him.

Justin Bieber has revealed that he has a crush on Cheryl Cole after he called the star "really pretty" during a recent interview.

The 'As Long As You Love' Me' singer was questioned if perhaps, at 29, the Girls Aloud star was a little too old for him.

"Is that a challenge? She's not too old. Nothing is too old for me, except maybe 50 or 60," he admitted.

The pair also shared a high-five backstage at the Summertime Ball 2012 back in June.

He also opened up to the Daily Mail about his fear of flying, revealing that he had only recently developed the phobia.

"It scares me. When I get anxiety, my heart drops and starts beating really fast as if it's going to explode," he said. "And when there's a weird noise, it's like, what's that weird noise?

"People say you have more chance of getting into a car accident than a plane crash, but they do maybe one flight a year and I'm on planes all the time.

"And all the time I’m thinking I have no control. If this plane crashes I'm dead. I feel like every time I get on a plane I'm risking my life."

The star is currently on his 'Believe' world tour which will head to Dallas, Texas this evening (29th October) and come to the UK in early 2013.
