Whether she’s hanging out with Dolly Parton, releasing new music, or doing something controversial, Miley Cyrus is known around the world. The singer recently opened up about an unforgettable plane trip she took earlier this year and how it left her “a little traumatized”.
Miley Cyrus describes a terrifying plane ride
When appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Cyrus spoke about her ill-fated trip to Paraguay to perform at the Asunciónico music festival in March 2022. On the way, a storm rocked the small plane she and her crew were flying in, and lightning struck the plane.
“It was really scary,” the singer said. “I was on my mother’s lap because I was pretty sure the seat belts weren’t an issue at the time.”
“It was really very strange,” Cyrus continued. “Because it was unexpected weather and some things that day — when I woke up that morning I was like, ‘Something felt kinda wrong and not quite right.'”
The plane made an emergency landing and luckily Miley Cyrus, her crew and her friends and family were all safe. The music festival they had flown to was also canceled due to the extreme weather.
“There was just a lot going on,” Cyrus explained. “And everyone’s like — my guys in my band, who are just rock ‘n’ rollers, they’re like, ‘We gotta go to the fans! We still have to play the gig!’ I say, ‘Okay, no. We’re in the middle of the forest on a broken plane. There’s flooding where we’re supposed to go. The stage is sinking.’”
The pop star was due to play Lollapalooza Brazil a few days later and was grateful that the country’s government allowed her group to enter the country earlier than planned.
“They were amazing,” Miley Cyrus said. “They let us in a few days early and we were able to take a few days to recover because we were all a little bit traumatized.”
Miley Cyrus’ trip to New York
Her appearance on the late-night show was just one of many high-profile performances Cyrus made during a trip to New York City. She and mother Tish Cyrus attended a performance of Chicago in support of pal Pamela Anderson.
She also posted a photo of herself in her hotel room wearing a handcrafted tank top with the caption, “Damn yes, I’m Miley Cyrus,” a nod to a joke made by fellow Disney friend Selena Gomez while she was hosting Saturday night live.
