Alien encounters: every celebrity has had one. Okay, maybe not EVERY celebrity. But a surprising number of Hollywood stars have (supposedly) been visited by extraterrestrials! And since celebs can’t seem to do anything without talking far and wide about it afterward, those same stars have opened up quite candidly about these supposed alien interactions!

In this list, we’ll look into a tried-and-true genre: aliens! But there’s a twist. Rather than focusing on crazy abduction stories or all the UFO sightings you’ve heard about a million times, let’s step aside and let ten celebrities tell you in their own words about the wacky times they encountered aliens. Buckle up for this one, y’all… it’s out of this world!

10 Post Malone

Joe Rogan & Post Malone Talk Aliens and UFOs

Post Malone hasn’t had just one alien encounter throughout the years—he’s had several! The recording artist has been around aliens all his life, at least according to him. When he was a kid, for one, he claimed that he and his cousin were outside one day when they watched an unexplainable light speed off high into the sky. Then, as an adult living in California, he claimed he was in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley one night when he saw a whole host of aliens overhead. He was standing on his balcony in the suburb of Tarzana at the time when he looked up and… they were right there!

Speaking about it a few years later on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Post Malone likened the alien cover that night to a “force field.” He said of the experience: “I used to live in Tarzana… and it looked kind of like, it sounds corny, but like a classic force field… It’s kind of like a dome in a circular shape in Tarzana, looking down at the f**king city. And I’m like, ‘How did no one else see this?’ But I was there with like f**king four other people, and they saw it too.” Yes, Post, maybe you all did really see that. But the question we must ask is: Were you guys all sober? Just wondering![1]

9 Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato Woke Up To 3 Extraterrestrial Beings In Their Room

Demi Lovato is such a big believer in aliens that she once made a docuseries about finding them. She has even copped to having some of her own personal experiences with the extraterrestrial world. And while we might be a little bit skeptical about Demi’s stories, she certainly is adamant about them. Take, for example, what she said to Kelly Clarkson about the time that three aliens were in her room and watching her sleep!

“So I woke up in my room, and there were three beings,” Lovato told the American Idol alum on her daytime talk show. “And then they were like, ‘Do you wanna see your planet?’ I was like, ‘Hell yeah! Let’s go!’ So I like whooshed out of my room and was hovering over the planet. And then all of a sudden, they’re like, ‘You wanna see our planet? And I was like, ‘Hell yeah!’ Then I wooshed to this like pink and purple planet that I’ve never seen.” Well, okay then! Do you believe that?[2]

8 Nick Jonas

The Time Nick Jonas Saw Three UFOs – Late Night with Seth Meyers

Unlike Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas was very much not a believer in aliens. When he was growing up, he felt like aliens were a bunch of crap. But that all changed when he was just 14 years old and hanging out in his backyard one night with his friends. That evening, Nick realized he was seeing something that looked like a UFO. His friends thought it was crap when he pointed it out. They kept denying what he was seeing. But Nick persisted—and the experience made him a true believer.

Appearing on Seth Meyers’s late-night show years later, Nick explained himself: “I am on board [with believing in the existence of aliens]. When I was 14, maybe, I was in my backyard playing basketball with some friends, and I looked up in the sky, and there was three flying saucers. Everyone was like, ‘It’s a movie set,’ and I was convinced it was real. And I looked it up online and there were three identical sightings in other states. So I’m a firm believer in aliens.”[3]

7 Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus Describes UFO Encounter

Like all the other celebs on this list, Miley Cyrus is quite an alien enthusiast. Perhaps second to only Demi Lovato in terms of how much she loves extraterrestrials, the “‘Wrecking Ball” has been surprisingly vocal about her UFO experiences. The most notable was when she was on tour and driving through rural California with a friend when a UFO high in the sky supposedly chased the duo down in their car. Speaking to Interview Magazine about the experience, Miley said: “The best way to describe it is a flying snowplow. It had this big plow in the front of it and was glowing yellow. I did see it flying, and my friend saw it, too. There were a couple of other cars on the road, and they also stopped to look, so I think what I saw was real.”

Not ready to leave it alone at that, Billy Ray Cyrus’s daughter continued her explanation: “I was shaken for, like, five days. It f**ked me up. I couldn’t really look at the sky the same. I thought they might come back … I didn’t feel threatened at all, actually, but I did see a being sitting in the front of the flying object. It looked at me, and we made eye contact, and I think that’s what really shook me, looking into the eyes of something that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around.” Creepy, right? But it’s also kind of cool, to be honest![4]

6 Fran Drescher

Fran Drescher’s Extraterrestrial Encounter: A Star’s Shocking Alien Abduction Story!

Not only did Fran Drescher reportedly have an experience with aliens early in her life, but it supposedly led her to marry her now-former husband, Peter Marc. According to The Nanny sitcom star, she and Peter had the same exact alien experience before they’d ever met each other. And once they realized that they had that connection together, well, love was simply meant to be afterward. Forget Cupid, a matchmaker, or a nosy grandmother trying to set you up in a relationship. According to Fran, love comes down to finding an alien to match two people!

Speaking about her alien experience years later to the Huffington Post, Drescher said: “You know, it’s funny because Peter and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads. We were both in junior high. A few years later, we met, and we realized that we had the same experience. I think that, somehow, we were programmed to meet. We both have this scar. It’s the exact same scar on the exact same spot.” Truly, it was meant to be. It’s a shame the couple divorced after 21 years of marriage, though. It makes us wonder: Did the aliens set up the split, too?[5]

5 Kacey Musgraves

The Untold Truth Of Country Star Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves has always taken an interest in all things space. After all, there’s a reason why she calls herself “Spacey Kacey.” It all started when she was a kid, and her father bought her a telescope to look up at the sky at night. And with all that looking up at the world far above her, well, she’s certainly seen some interesting things.

The most interesting of those was when she was on a beach in Mexico for a friend’s wedding. According to Musgraves herself, while everyone was focused on the ceremony and the sweet love story, a UFO supposedly flew down from the sky and hovered right over the hotel! Of course, people drink a ton of tequila when they go to Mexico, and sometimes they see some goofy things. But Kacey swears that’s not what it is.

“I noticed something hovering above the corner of the hotel,” Musgraves told NME years later. “In the night sky, it kind of looked like the underbelly of a bird. You couldn’t really see what it was. You know how around the outside edge of a hotel they sometimes have floodlights that point up into the sky? Whatever it was, it was being shined on by those.”

And she continued: “I was very confused by it, so I said, ‘Y’all, what’s that?’ We all watched it for a minute, and then it changed shape into an X-pattern, like a windmill shape. It was so weird… Then it started glowing and doing things that nothing normal would do. It was crazy.”[6]

4 Lupe Fiasco

Lupe Fiasco Recalls His Extraterrestrial Experience

Lupe Fiasco was still a kid when he had the extraterrestrial experience that totally changed his life. He was sleeping peacefully when he was suddenly awoken in the middle of the night. He suddenly felt like he was being surrounded by some sort of electrical current. He tried to move, but he couldn’t. Finally, after several long minutes like that, the electricity stopped. As it did, he opened his eyes and saw a black disc flying outside his window. Even worse, he noticed that he had been left with a mysterious scar on his skin, which wasn’t there the day before.

Years later, during a radio show appearance, the rapper recounted the experience: “When I was 11, I definitely had an extra-worldly experience. I got a scar on the bottom of my ankle, and I don’t know where it came from. I never had surgery there; I never remember falling there. I’ve done martial arts my whole life; it could be something from that… [but] I remember waking up and just being shocked like I was surrounded by all this electricity.” What a surreal experience, if it’s true![7]

3 Kesha

Kesha: Seeing UFOs While Camping with Boyfriend Inspired Album

Kesha is so much of a believer in alien life somewhere out there in the universe that it inspired her to produce an entire album about it. Her 2017 album Rainbow came about because of her alien experience. It even has a song called “Spaceship,” so she is clearly not kidding about it. But the alien encounter she claims to have had in Joshua Tree National Park in California really has her talking.

She was out in the rural desert wilderness there camping out one day when she looked up randomly and saw a bunch of UFOs hovering above her in the sky. “I look up in the sky, and there’s a bunch of spaceships,” Kesha recounted during an appearance on the Zach Sang Show.

“I swear to God, there were like five to seven, and I don’t know why I didn’t, like, try to take a picture of it. I just looked at it. I was sitting on a rock, and I was like, ‘What in the hell is that?’ I was trying to figure it out, and then they went away. And then they came back. I was like, ‘Those are f**king aliens.’ They were spaceships!”

Maybe… or maybe she was high on something. Or maybe they were weird Area 51 experimental aircraft doing some training in the desert southwest! Who knows?[8]

2 Tom DeLonge

What Are UFOs? We Asked Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge and A Bunch of Skeptics | How Did We Get Here?

Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge has spent much of his free time researching aliens. At one point, he even put his music career on hold to devote more time to the subject. While doing that, he founded the “To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences,” which has an entire division dedicated to the studio of unidentified flying objects. Pretty cool, right? And it all comes from a guy who has been very open and honest about his alien encounters.

The most notable of those was a strange occurrence during a camping trip to a rural location very near Nevada’s Area 51. All at once, Tom woke up in the middle of the night. He was unable to move his body even though he was completely coherent—but it wasn’t sleep paralysis. “My whole body felt like it had static electricity, and I opened my eyes, and the [campfire] is still going, and there’s a conversation going on outside the tent,” the rock-and-roll frontman recounted later to the Hollywood Reporter.

“It sounded like there were about 20 people there, talking. And instantly, my mind goes, ‘Okay, they’re at our campsite, they’re not here to hurt us, they’re talking about s**t, but I can’t make out what they’re saying. But they’re working on something.’ Then I close my eyes and wake up, and the fire is out, and I have about three hours of lost time.” Aliens? Or just a very, very strange dream?[9]

1 Goldie Hawn

Goldie Hawn’s ALIEN Encounter Story: ‘It Felt Like The Finger Of God’

Goldie Hawn was taking a nap in a friend’s car one day years after a dress rehearsal for an upcoming dance performance when she woke up to a “high-pitched sound,” as she described it. Startled, she looked out of the window, and what did she see? Aliens! That’s what she thought, at least.

Speaking on the Time To Walk podcast, Hawn recalled: “I saw these two or three triangular-shaped heads. They were silver in color, slash for a mouth, tiny little nose, no ears. They were pointing at me, pointing at me in the car as if they were discussing me like I was a subject. And they were droning. I didn’t know if it was real or not real. And finally, I burst out of it. It was like bursting out of a forcefield. And of course, I go back to all the kids, and I went, ‘Oh, my God. I think I made contact with outer space.’”

Crazy, right? In the years after all that happened, Goldie decided to start investigating her experience. She eventually got into contact with an astrophysicist who interviewed her about what happened, and she started to recall more moments from that memorable event.

She called it the “most benevolent, loving feeling” she’d ever experienced, leaving her “filled with light” throughout. In the end, she admitted on the podcast that she’ll almost certainly “never know” exactly what happened. However, she “kind of likes it that way,” with the mystery taking hold more than any cold-and-hard facts. We like that attitude![10]
