Pop star Selena Gomez searches for ghosts wherever she goes.

The 23-year-old beauty has previously confessed she believes in supernatural spirits and uses a special ghost app to hunt them down. During an interview with US talk show host Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show on Wednesday (14Oct15), Selena couldn’t resist using her cell phone to detect spooks around the set.

“I believe in ghosts, so I have a ghost app,” the brunette told a surprised-looking Jimmy. “I believe that spirits can tap into technology, why not right?”

As Selena ran the test, Jimmy admitted he was feeling scared and reluctantly looked at the cell phone screen as it showed strange wave formations and random numbers. His uneasiness was only heightened when a sinister voice said the word ‘children’ just seconds after Selena had opened the app.

“Children…,” Selena repeated, before poking fun at Jimmy and members of the audience. “I don’t have any children so they must be mad at ya’ll.”

The singer has made no secret of her fascination with the spirit world and recently revealed to Billboard magazine that she uses the phantom app because she enjoys feeling scared. When Jimmy attempted to make light of the findings, Selena was quick to defend its validity. She regularly scouts locations for other beings and insists the app has previously mentioned people she knew “by name”.

During her appearance on the show, Selena also performed her sexy new song Same Old Love, which is taken from her latest album Revival. Despite carving out a successful career with her sultry voice, the star claims she used to feel “extremely insecure” having such a low tone. “But I realised it’s actually an asset to me now,” Selena smiled.
