Selena Gomez loves to visit haunted houses.

The actress-and-singer enjoys visiting properties that supposedly contain ghosts across the world, although one experience at a ''haunted hospital'' proved to be too spooky.

She explained in an interview with British radio station KISS FM: ''I like being scared, a lot! I like going to haunted houses ... I went to a haunted hospital, which was really weird. I should have brought a couple of guys but I took all girls! We saw things ... we walked into this room and we were supposed to stay there for like a minute and be quiet so we could hear things. I don't know if they were messing with us, but the stories they told us were freaking me out.''

The 21-year-old pop beauty isn't the only star with a penchant for the paranormal, as fellow pop star Miley Cyrus, 20, recently claimed she encountered a ghost while staying at an apartment in London in 2009.

She said: ''It was seriously so terrifying. I thought I had seen 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.

''I had to move. That's not a lie. I will never stay there ever again.''

Other stars who claim to have had a brush with the 'other side' include Demi Lovato, Matthew Mcconaughey and Ryan Gosling.
