If you had to make a list of the celebrities most likely to be alien believers, who would you put on it? I mean, Nicolas Cage has to be up there, right?
However, it’s Post Malone who is making headlines this week about his close encounters.
In case you happen to be over the age of 25, Post Malone looks like this:
He makes music that sounds like this:
Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s talk about the aliens.
Maybe if this story had broken in 2019, before the Pentagon basically confirmed that UFOs were real, we’d all have a good laugh at this chap with the facial tattoos and move on with our day. But honestly? I’m a lot more willing to take UFO sightings seriously.
Or I would, if literally anyone but Post Malone had been telling this story. But he might not be the most reliable narrator, as you’ll see.
During a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Malone described several different UFO sightings during his life. The first happened when he was a teenager.
“I’ve seen one. I was probably 16. I was in upstate New York and it would just stay there,” Post said, pausing to add, “Let me precursor this: My aunt and uncle were very strict, and we had to go to bed at a very strict deadline, probably 10 P.M. I was looking out the window with my cousin and it’s just a light that just stays there and then just f*kin’ goes off…I mean, you can’t explain it.”
He admitted that the memory is a bit hazy. The other sightings happened when Malone was an adult, both in California and Utah.
“I used to live in Tarzana…It looked kind of like, it sounds corny, but like a classic forcefield…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*kin’ four other people, and they saw it too,” Malone said.
Profanity aside, Malone was, uh, not fully in compos mentis during the interview. The long, rambling 4-hour interview got weird–probably because Malone was sleep-deprived and allegedly high on mushrooms.
Malone has been outspoken about conspiracy theories and anti-government ideology in the past. During a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, he stated: “There’s crazy sh*t that goes on that we can’t explain.”
If you don’t believe Post Malone, what about Demi Lovato? She’s on record as believing in aliens as recently as April 2020. Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge is a UFO enthusiast who is also behind the “To the Stars Academy” story that we covered earlier this year.
Mad Men star January Jones is a believer, too. She told Jimmy Kimmel that she saw a UFO herself in her 20s. “It was a definitely a spaceship,” she said. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers also saw a UFO in his 20s.
“It looks like commercial jets kinda flying – or maybe it’s a military jet – and they’re trying to figure out what’s coming through the clouds and you see like a fiery movement of cloud, I guess, coming through the sky,” he said in 2016. “Then the plane eventually runs into the spaceship, which is coming into orbit. It was like … a large, orange, left-to-right moving object.”
Bill Nye (the Science Guy) thinks that the statistical likelihood of Earth being the only populated planet is, well, astronomical. “There are 200 billion stars in our galaxy. That’s likely 2 trillion planets. Aliens gotta be out there …” he tweeted in 2019.
