When most people go on trips abroad, they tend to collect photos or souvenirs, but Miley Cyrus' mementos are a bit more sinister. The star returned home from her stay in London with a ghost story, which probably shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering the long and turbulent history of the city. But the specters that chose to manifest in front of the Cyrus family sound like a particularly creepy bunch.

"It was seriously so terrifying. It used to be an old bakery and they turned it into an apartment building, and I was having really crazy dreams and really scary things," Cyrus told Elle U.K. Apparently the ghosts weren’t satisfied with just haunting the singer’s dreams though.

"And one night my little sister—it sounds crazy to tell you—but, she was standing in the shower and all of a sudden I hear her scream. I run in there and the water had somehow flipped to hot but it was still…It wasn't like the water had just changed, the knob had turned but she hadn't turned it and it was burning her. She was really red."

Normally that could be explained away with faulty plumbing, but the next bit of Miley’s paranormal experience is a bit more difficult to figure out. Miley said that she saw a little boy “sitting on the sink watching me take a shower so I felt really freaked out. I was sitting there the next night and maybe I'm crazy, but I could have sworn I could see this little boy sitting there on the sink, kicking his feet.”

Ever curious, Cyrus went digging after the incident and found out some curious facts about the family lodgings – apparently the building was a converted bakery, which used to be owned by an old baker and his son.

Miley might be fearless with her style choices and career, but she draws the line at ghosts.

"I guess the wife died or something, she had gotten sick," she told the mag. "So it was just the son and the dad that lived there in the bakery, and then the dad died and the son took over the bakery, and I thought I was seeing the son. I'm not even kidding." Naturally, the Cyrus family moved out after the incidents. Singing might run in their blood, but ghost-busting sure doesn’t.
