According to Huffington Post, Melua hear the rustling sound for a week, and when the doctors took a look in her ear canal, the saw a spider staring right back at them.
Melua, 30, said she thinks the spider got inside her ear canal after she used some old in-ear monitors to block out sound on a flight. She said the spider lived inside her ear for a full seven days.
The singer said the spider must have been inside the ear monitors and then crawled inside her ear. She said apart from the occasional shuffling noises, it was no hassle at all.
According to Daily Mail, after the spider was removed from Melua's ear, she posted some pictures of in on Instagram.
A spokeswoman for Melua said the ear specialist said he has taken out plenty of dead bugs throughout his career, but never a live one. When the spider was out, it was quite small.
The singer kept the spider in the test tube it was placed in when it was removed, and she released it into her garden. She also said that she was relieved that it was what it was because she was concerned about losing her hearing.
