9 Scary Stories From Celebs, From Ghoulish Tales To Perplexing Phenomenons

There are some people who are completely closed off to supernatural stories and otherworldly experiences — I, personally, am not one of them. On the flip side, there are those who are in the business of scaring us all with their stories of the paranormal. For instance, the many celebrities who have recounted their own scary stories, including everyone from pop stars like Ariana Grande and Kesha, to world famous actors like Leonardo DiCaprio. Apparently, ghouls live among us. Just as I had suspected all along.

So, if you want to be effectively spooked because you are a fellow Halloween fiend like me, or simply because this sort of thing just intrigues you, look no further. I have done us all a solid. Out of the goodness of my ghost-hunting heart, I poked around the most haunted corners of the Internet, walked up the metaphorical creaky attic stairs, and unearthed some paranormal happenings... in the form of some really creepy and unforgettable celebrity stories on the matter. Clearly, just because you're famous, it doesn’t mean that you’re untouched or unaffected by the human sensation that is complete and utter terror, be it via ghosts, demons, or a haunted vagina that requires an exorcism. You've been warned!

The interviewer understandably wanted to see the evidence, but Grande added,

The story actually doesn't end there. You can check out the rest of the interview where she talks about, "massive black matter" sharing a bed with her.

This scary story is better heard than read. Ya know, for effect.

3. Lady Gaga

Gaga said this to Entertainment Weekly of American Horror Story: Hotel: "I’ve just been weeping while I’m here because I have returned to something I’ve believed in so much, which is the art of darkness. It’s not something that everyone understands, but, for the people that do — Horror Story fans, my fans — there is a true connection between us, and it’s a language within itself."

The art of darkness? THE ART OF DARKNESS? Like black magic? Gaga, you don't mess with that sort of stuff!

Cyrus talked to Elle UK about the apartment that she rented in London, which already had a few unwelcoming occupants. She said of her time there,

5. Jennifer Lawrence

On The Late Show With David Letterman, Lawrence told the host about her creepy experience with Nicholas Hoult while staying with him in Africa. She said,

The ghost was just probably trying to get her autograph. But, still scary nonetheless.

Are you ready for this one, guys? Because, I don't know if you are. I wasn't. Actually, I still might not be. Lovato told BuzzFeed,

Not sure why she's so calm about it. I think we can all agree that kid ghosts are the absolute scariest.

7. Kesha

If you didn't know, Kesha once claimed that her vagina was haunted, much to the chagrin of everyone who has a vagina and didn't know this was a possibility. In an effort to get a bit more info, and probably some closure on the situation, Rolling Stone spoke to her about it, and she delved into her "exorcism" for them:

She later clarifies that she's not, "100 percent sure" the ghost was strictly haunting only her vagina.

8. Leonardo DiCaprio

He hasn't won an Oscar yet, but perhaps he should win some sort of bravery medal for nonchalantly telling letting us in on this nugget. He said on British show Lorraine,

"My home makes weird noises at times and I have to get up in the middle of the night and check if there's somebody breaking in. It's like creaking or something — these weird ghost noises, but I don't believe in ghosts. It's like the wind or the way it was built."

Sure, "the wind." Right.

9. Keanu Reeves

Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube

Fast forward to 1:15 to hear about the time that, as a child, Reeves and his nanny watched a jacket come "waving through the doorway" of the bedroom they were in, before vanishing.

This, my friends, is why you NEVER LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN AT NIGHT. A lesson learned.

*Turns off flashlight* The End.
