Some celebrities believe that there are other forms of life to exist out in the universe, with Miley Cyrus even claiming to have had encounters with aliens and UFOs.

It’s almost the 75th anniversary of the infamous Roswell crash, which has become either a big PR disaster or a cover-up in US history.

As the anniversary draws closer, The Focus takes a look at bizarre events from famous faces themselves who swore they encountered something… not quite of this world?

Read on to discover which celebs have publicly spoken out about their belief in aliens…and even mermaids (other than Miley Cyrus!)

In a 2020 interview with Interview magazine, Miley Cyrus confirmed she believes in aliens. She even shared her experience of reportedly being “chased down by some sort of UFO” in San Bernardino, California.

The singer did note that it “could have been the weed wax” that she had just bought. Although Miley Cyrus did explain others were present when they saw the apparent aliens.

But she explained that “The best way to describe it is a flying snowplow. It had this big plow in the front of it and was glowing yellow.”

She added: “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.”

Following this experience, she “couldn’t really look at the sky the same after.” Especially after seeing something that looked like an alien.

“I did see a being sitting in the front of the flying object,” she claimed. “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.”

In 2014, during an interview with Seth Meyers, Demi Lovato gave her opinion on aliens saying “I know that they’re real.” 

She continued, “How self-centred would we be, as humans, to believe we’re the only living things in the universe.”

This gets even wilder, Lovato also believes in mermaids. She revealed: “I believe that there could possibly be mermaids, which is actually an alien species that lives in parts of the Indian Ocean which we have never explored before.”

The singer also posted an Instagram in 2020 about making contact with extraterrestrial life. She captioned the post “just some of the evidence from under the stars in the desert sky that can no longer be ignored and must be shared immediately.”

Although any further detail is sparse.

“At Men In Black premiere,” he began. “There are 200 billion stars in our galaxy. That’s likely 2 trillion planets. Aliens gotta be out there …”

That is one way to approach the conversation.

Jaden Smith had a talk with then-president, Barack Obama, about alien existence. Smith claims Obama said something that made him leave the meeting believing that aliens were real.

“I talked to President Obama about extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they’re real,” Smith revealed to Wonderland magazine in 2013.

“If people think we’re the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them.”
