Miley Cyrus has claimed she was once chased by a UFO.

The 27-year-old singer, who admitted she had been using marijuana at the time, said she was convinced she was being followed by an alien spaceship, and that she even made eye-contact with the extra-terrestrial.

Cyrus told Interview magazine: “I had an experience, actually. I was driving through San Bernardino with my friend, and I got chased down by some sort of UFO.

“I’m pretty sure about what I saw, but I’d also bought weed wax from a guy in a van in front of a taco shop, so it could have been the weed wax.

She adds that the UFO, which was ‘glowing yellow’ and looked like a flying snowplough, was also seen by other people in the same vicinity.

Cyrus admitted she did feel disturbed by the encounter, but not threatened.

The Midnight Sky singer added: “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.”

Cyrus’s father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, has also claimed to have seen UFOs.

In 2011 he posted a picture on Twitter of lights on the horizon, captioned: “O. K. . first U F O sighting. Looks like 5 or 6 disk like shapes hovering. Special moment 4 DAD. [sic]”
