Crashing Jimmy Kimmel's bedroom to ruin his good night's sleep seems to be a common pastime among pop stars. Rihanna started the trend back in 2015 for April Fool's Day, before Britney Spears marched in to throw a party during his slumber for no reason at all the next year (hilariously, his wife Molly McNearney is in on the gag every time).

"For whatever reason, I have become the victim of an unusual prank multiple times," Kimmel explained on Monday's episode of his eponymous late night show. "I thought that was that, but I guess this is a series now because the other night, yet another music superstar barged into my dreams. This time, I was the victim of a very loud, young woman named Miley Cyrus."

Apparently, third time was not the charm for Kimmel. In a fun ode to her hit song, Miley literally came in like a wrecking ball (with an actual human wrecking ball in tow), swinging around a construction hammer on his bed before things got slightly painful. “I hit him in the balls with the sledgehammer,” Miley casually admitted after the fiasco. But really, it's not his fault: the song blaring in the background should've been a warning.

Watch the hilarity ensue below.
