Designer Rick Owens blended the world of art, traveling and fashion with his new collaborative experiment with Italian label Moncler, in which he decked out a custom vehicle and matching attire for a road trip from Los Angeles to Nevada.
The designer chatted with Miley Cyrus, who is a veteran of life on the road, for Interview Magazine, and the duo eventually came to the topic of extraterrestrial life after Owens shared that he visited Area 51 on his trip.
While Owens admitted that he doesn’t “really” believe in extraterrestrial beings, “it seems a little arrogant to assume there’s nobody else but us.”
“That’s what I f—ing think!” Cyrus replied, before sharing that she’s had her own experience with otherworldly life.
“I was driving through San Bernardino with my friend, and I got chased down by some sort of UFO,” she explained, before cheekily adding, “I’m pretty sure about what I saw, but I’d also bought weed wax from a guy in a van in front of a taco shop, so it could have been the weed wax. But the best way to describe it is a flying snowplow. It had this big plow in the front of it and was glowing yellow. I did see it flying, and my friend saw it, too. There were a couple of other cars on the road and they also stopped to look, so I think what I saw was real.”
While the “Midnight Sky” singer said the experience left her “shaken for, like, five days,” she didn’t feel threatened at all. “I did see a being sitting in the front of the flying object,” she said. “It looked at me and we made eye contact, and I think that’s what really shook me, looking into the eyes of something that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around. But you’re so right to say that it’s a form of narcissism to think that we’re the only things that could be in this vast universe.”
