Where do broken hearts go? They better not go to the airport.

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles International to New York’s John F Kennedy Airport was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City Friday after an unidentified woman refused to stop singing Whitney Houston songs.

Local Missouri station KCTV 5 broadcast one passenger’s stealth video showing authorities escorting the would-be crooner off the plane as she was still wailing Houston’s iconic cover of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”

According to airport spokesperson Joe McBride, the woman was subdued on the aircraft by a federal air marshal who put her in handcuffs and removed her from the plane. McBride added that woman reportedly blamed her outburst on her diabetes.

Maybe she just wanted to dance with somebody.
