Miley Cyrus Survives Harrowing Scorpion Encounter!

Okay, before anybody gets alarmed, know this first: Miley Cyrus is okay. (At least from a health perspective.) But she did have a close brush with fate this week when she had a close encounter with one of nature’s most fearsome creatures: A real, live scorpion!

The Hannah Montana star was doing a phone interview on Atlanta radio station Star 94 FM’s Cindy and Ray in the Morning show when the eight-legged beast appeared in her Nashville hotel room. A frightening prospect for even the most steely-nerved being, but showing the reserve that’s made her a household name, Cyrus took control of the situation admirably. After a lot of screaming.
