Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne

What the fuck are Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne doing in that Instagram photo up there? Shooting porn? According to Rolling Stone, the fearless freaks’ friendship has been blossoming in other ways lately: clubbing, getting lip tattoos together, checking out 2 Chainz in concert. Cyrus also says she’s writing material for her next record with the Flaming Lips, with whom she already performed “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1″ on stage and collaborated on a Beatles cover in the studio. The plan is to start recording as soon as her Bangerz tour is finished. Cyrus sounds pumped about the prospect of real live instruments on her next record, so maybe she and noted Coyne nemesis Win Butler would also get along. (OK, probably not.) Here’s what she had to say about this whole Lips business:

On my last record, everything we did was with computers. But they’re real musicians — they can change keys on a whim. I’ve never seen anything like it. They’ve had me on this journey that’s greater than anything I’ve been on. It’s really deep.

Although I find Coyne’s recent antics increasingly distasteful, I’m at least a little curious to hear what their music with Cyrus sounds like. They did make The Soft Bulletin, and the girl can sing, so there’s an outside chance it will be revelatory. It will probably be garbage, though, and seriously, that photo creeps me out.

  1. “there’s an outside chance it will be revelatory. It will probably be garbage, though”
    increasingly sums up my attitude towards everything the flaming lips do

    • Thumbs up to Chris pouring out the honest juice on that.

      Also, “…and seriously, that photo creeps me out.”

      It definitely speaks to my earlier concern that he’s gotten into a pattern of preying on young, impressionable pop stars who are enamored by his talents and can’t pick up on his creep factor. Things are looking like the early stages of an SVU script in Wayne’s world these days.

  2. I understand that journalists are supposed to be (at least a modicum) objective but would it be possible to stop reporting on the Wayne Coyne Express? It’s gone from irritating to deeply saddening. Watching someone desperately cling to whatever semblance of fame they used to hold while simultaneously sacrificing any/all artistic integrity for the sake of relevance is akin to a small animal caught in a trap that no one can set it free from: miserable.

  3. Wayne Coyne is Terry Richardson dressed up as Tim Burton.

  4. Not sure if Miley wearing a fake beard in that picture makes it more or less creepy …

  5. Coyne never seizes to amaze me but idk about this one I kind of wish he would just make the Terror pt. 2 or something

  6. Just wait. This is just the beginning. Miley Cyrus / Flaming Lips collaborations will soon be featured in Premature Evaluation, Heavy Rotation, The 5 Best Songs of the Week, Straight to Video, etc… OWWWOOOOOOO!
