Cyrus’ flight incident comes days after she traveled down to Argentina to cause quite the stir. As The Blast reported, the “Hannah Montana” star was the headliner at the Lollapalooza Argentina Festival over the weekend, and she didn’t well to blow fans’ minds.
Cyrus stole hearts donning a platinum blonde bob with brunette undertones as she partied hard with her Argentinian fans.
In the photos that saw the singer rocking a tight-fitting romper and visor glasses, Cyrus was having the time of her life with fans as she took countless selfies while making crazy faces.
Argentina fans didn’t fail to reciprocate Cyrus’ positive energy in a video that showed them banging on the windows of her car in excitement.
There’s no doubt that with the reduction in COVID-19 restrictions, Cyrus and her fans were super thrilled to be back to having concerts face-to-face.
At the Lollapalooza Argentina Festival, Cyrus took the stage with A$AP Rocky and Alessa on the opening day. Other singers who performed include Machine Gun Kelly, Doja Cat, and The Strokes.
Following a wonderful time with fans, Cyrus took to Twitter to appreciate the crowd before her performance, writing, “Thank you for have me Argentina! This South American Festival run is about to be f—king LEGENDARY! I’m about to give my fans not only what they’re been asking for but what they DESERVE baby!”
An Epic Wardrobe Malfunction To Start The Year
Cyrus’ presence at the Lollapalooza Argentina Festival isn’t the first time she’s caused quite the ruckus on stage.

Back in January while hosting NBC’s “Miley’s New Year’s Eve” party alongside Pete Davidson, the Tennessee native suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.
While performing “Party in the U.S.A” in a short silver skirt and matching silver crop top ensemble, the ropes that held the top snapped.
As expected, Cyrus handled the malfunction like a pro, holding the top to her chest and still singing away. She eventually turned around to head off the stage, her bare back in view but moments later she returned wearing a red blazer jacket instead.
Later that day during another performance, Cyrus even made a joke about the wardrobe malfunction to the crowd, saying, “Everybody’s definitely looking at me now. I’m still in the most clothes that I’ve ever worn on stage.”
