News surfaces, from Miley Cyrus’ sister Brandi, that last week on their way to Miley’s performance at the Glastonbury Music Festival, their private plane went into emergency mode twice while trying to land.
As Brandi told it on her podcast, Your Favorite Thing, “Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way…Out of nowhere, as we’re landing, we swoop back up and like bang to the left and turn. It feels crazy.
“(My mom and sister are) very nervous fliers, and when they get nervous they just feed off of each other and just make each other more nervous. They just start losing their minds. And even though I’m scared, I was like, ‘Someone has to be level headed here’ so, Miley’s in my lap, my mom’s holding my hand across the aisle… and nobody is telling us what’s going on.
“They finally come back and tell us, ‘No need to panic but somebody was in our lane in the sky and we were going to hit them,’ That’s terrifying to think about.”
When the same thing happened on a second try Brandi goes on, “My mom starts crying and goes, ‘If we die, Noah is gonna be alone’ and freaking out. I’m trying to hold it together for everybody. It was really crazy.” With her feet on the ground, Miley tore up the festival with songs from her Netflix movie Black Mirror and a series of covers from Metallica and Led Zeppelin. She capped it with her Godmother, Dolly Pardon’s “Jolene” and a deeply rooted version of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.” The performance in the air matched the one on the stage; both death defying.
