Celebrities Tweet UFO Sightings

Posted: Updated:

October was a busy month for celebrity UFO sightings and, in a sign of the times, all of these sightings were tweeted. Even more surprising, a couple of the tweets included pictures of the alleged UFOs and two of the tweets were accompanied by tweets from other witnesses.

The first celebrity UFO tweet of the month came from 19-year-old singer Demi Lovato on the 10th. She tweeted:

Did anyone else see a UFO or weird thing in the sky tonight in LA???

Her friend tweeted soon after:

@ddlovato that UFO was nuts!

Paparazzi caught up with Lovato and her friends soon after the UFO sighting. Lovato described what they saw as some strange lights in the night sky over Los Angeles.

Nearly two weeks later, on the 23rd, country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted a UFO sighting that included a picture. He wrote:

O. K. . ..my first U F O sighting.Looks like 5 or 6 disk like shapes hovering. Special moment 4 DAD http://yfrog.com/nw2z9ssj

Cyrus appeared to be excited by his sighting, although it is difficult to make much out of the picture he snapped.

This isn't the first time Cyrus has pondered the UFO mystery, in fact he was slated to host a UFO show on the SyFy channel. In September of 2010 SyFy announced that Cyrus, along with his son Trace, were going to host a show called, UFO: Unbelievably Freakin' Obvious, which would focus on debunking UFO sightings. It has been over a year since the announcement and there has been no word that the show is going to air. Perhaps Cyrus has had a change of heart when it comes to the veracity of the UFO phenomenon.

The most recent celebrity UFO tweet came from ex-Spice Girl and British superstar, Victoria Beckham. On the 28th she tweeted a link to her UFO picture and wrote:

UFO hovering above our house last night!!!!! X vb http://yfrog.com/khvopmhj

Her friend Ken Paves, a Hollywood hairstylist, also witnessed the UFO and snapped his own picture. He tweeted:

UFO hovering above Beckham's house. Grab the kids @victoriabeckham and RUN-RUN @victoriabeckham RUN! http://twitpic.com/76vfat

Neither Cyrus nor Beckham have commented on their UFO tweets and pictures. Could these celebrities be using twitter to have a bit of fun, or are UFO sightings on the increase over Hollywood?
