The world lost Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and it was a huge hit to take for man. Tributes are flooding in and many more are sure to come. Miley Cyrus’ touching tribute brought a considerable amount of attention.
Miley Cyrus was seen in tears while she was paying tribute to her late friend Taylor Hawkins at Lollapalooza Brazil this Saturday. Miley said, “We had to make this emergency landing and the first person that I called was Taylor, because he was already at the festival.”
Cyrus was talking about the private jet that she took earlier this week. The plane was struck by lightning and had to make an emergency landing while en route to the Asunciónico Music Festival in Paraguay.
“That would’ve been a time that I would’ve gone to see my friend, and I didn’t, so it makes me really sad,” said Miley with a very sad voice. “I would’ve done anything to hang out with him one more time.”
Hawkins was found dead in a Colombian hotel three days after the Foo Fighters performed at the music festival. Later it was reported that multiple drugs were found in his hotel room.
“I know that I get on stage, and anytime that I get to play with my band – which if anything ever f*cking happened to any of them it would f*cking kill me, so I couldn’t imagine how the Foo Fighters feel today,” said Miley. She paid tribute to her late friend by dedicating her song “Angels Like You” to Hawkins. Many of her fans were also crying.
Before her performance, Cyrus shared her emotions on Twitter. In one of her many tweets she wrote, “I am just feeling heart broken & ‘human’ today…. But I am putting on my super hero suit and going to be strong not only for YOU but for ME! I want to live my truth AND MY MESSAGE! Never give up!”
The Foo Fighters took to their social media account to confirm the devastating news. They shared, “The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins. His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever. Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”
Miley has always been a big fan of the Foo Fighters, she came close with Hawkins while both of them were working for their Billy Idol collaboration “Night Crawling.” Our thoughts go out to all of Taylor’s family, friends, and fans during this time.
