Houston, We Have A Whitney Problem!

Now and then, we hear of radio stations marking a musical milestone by repeating a song over and over all day...(WHY they think that's a great idea escapes me: after listeners tire of the repetition, they hit the 'off' button.)
Imagine the living hell of being stuck on an plane with no 'off' switch, while one passenger constantly sings I Will Always Love You!
The solo performance began on a recent American Airlines domestic flight. A federal air marshal on board put the woman in handcuffs... but she kept on singing! The pilot changed course halfway through the 6hr.torture session for an unscheduled stop, so police could remove her.
Despite passengers being told they couldn't take photos, we hav ze pictures! WARNING! This video could be dangerous to your health!

While the song is best known for Whitney Houston's cover in the film The Bodyguard (1992) in which she starred with Kevin Costner, it was originally released by country singer-songwriter Dolly Parton in 1974. Her version topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart twice. Houston's Bodyguard original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album Of The Year and I Will Always Love You became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history.
