"I've always wanted to [go sky-diving]," Miley Cyrus tells contributing editor Josh Eells in her new Rolling Stone cover story. "We should do it." The next morning, the duo drove to Skydive Perris in the desert outside of L.A. "If I die," Cryus tells instructor Scott Smith, "you guys are so fucked."
The video, captured by Smith and videographer George Katsoulis, documents Cyrus' six-minute flight from 12,500 feet. "I'm finally a bird," Miley says in mid-air, "like I always wanted to be."
Back on Earth, Cyrus called her mother to say she's alive. "One thing about sky diving," she says, "you really know who you love, based on who you call."
