Miley Cyrus' emotional farewell to her late friend Taylor Hawkins on the Lollapalooza Brazil stage was heartfelt.
Holding back tears, Cyrus told the audience how Hawkins had been her first call after landing earlier in the week when the plane she was on was struck by lightning. She had planned to spend time on the festival circuit with the Foo Fighters drummer, whose death was confirmed Friday night (March 25).
"We had to make an emergency landing, and the first person I phoned was Taylor since he was already at the event. That would've been the moment I would've gotten to visit my buddy, and I didn't, so that makes me incredibly sad," Cyrus remarked, her eyes streaming.
