Miley Cyrus & Wayne Coyne Video

The Wayne Coyne/Miley Cyrus friendship continues to discomfit! Already today, we posted the queasy news of their matching chest tattoos, and now Cyrus and Coyne have teamed up with Moby to make a deeply and knowingly freaky short film called Blonde SuperFreak Steals The Magic Brain. Cyrus filmed her part in the short film, which isn’t even really for a song, while she was home sick in bed earlier this year, recovering from an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. It tells the story, sort of, of a naked blonde lady who steals a glowing gooey brain from Cyrus’s bedside while she’s asleep. But the film is less a narrative and more an example of what happens when amateur filmmakers try to do Jodorowsky. Below, watch it and read Coyne’s explanation of what the fuck is even going on.

Coyne tells Rolling Stone this:

The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world’s most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession… John F. Kennedy’s brain….the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!

Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.

She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…”

Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens.

If you made it through all five and a half minutes, go ahead and congratulate yourself.

  1. This just doesn’t feel like a healthy friendship. Nor a good film.

    Yep. OWWWOOOOOOOO!

  5. Hopefully this is the silver lining Kliph needs to move on.

  6. (they are hovering in a nearby spaceship)

  7. ……and after all THAT it gets kinda weird.
    Wayne Coyne

  8. RIP cool Wayne Coyne. 2013

  9. dude i don’t get it how is this a movie it has no literary, cinematic, or musical elements.

  10. another week, another sad wayne post-midlife crisis stunt.

  11. I used to be like, “Eh, this band hasn’t done anything good in a long time but you have to respect their commitment to every hokey art school freshman idea that pops into their heads.”

    But you know what? I was wrong. You really, really don’t have to respect it.

  12. Sad that Wayne Coyne is so washed up that he has to hitch his wagon to a retarded donkey like Miley to stay relevant. The worst 5 minutes in film begins…NOW.

  13. I saw better short films and music videos made during the Foundation year of Art School. I don’t even think acid casualties will enjoy this.

  14. maybe the bigger art project is transforming pop stars into an acid heads for the greater good?

    FOR THE GREATER GOOD

  15. well… I actually still really like Wayne and the Lips… The Miley “friendship” + Collabs, not so much… This “film” I didn’t hate at all, short enough for me watch, enjoy its wackiness and move on, the main issue I have is just the amount of collaborations the Lips do… I like their albums, but nothing with “fwends” ever really gets me going, even their collab with Lightening Bolt wasn’t super epic. I just feel like the Lips need to go be hermits for a few years somewhere far away and come back with another classic… but the Wayne hate is lame, hes a kick ass front man for a kick ass band and who he affiliates himself with shouldn’t be the end of the road for his fans. Just put on Soft Bulletin and realize why they rule and move on, pay these “stunts” or projects and cover albums no mind, they have too much good music to write them off as a shitty band now. and THE TERROR rules, so for me they havnt fallen off just yet… ALSO… Electric Wurms sounds promising from whats out, so, less hate on the Lips and Wayne huh? maybe? anyone?

    Its an allegory for campaign finance reform in local Oklahoma City elections, weren’t you paying attention?

  17. I left it wondering what exactly I’d just witnessed.

    I liked the music. Reminded me of Cromagnon’s Orgasm.

  18. Good lord, this video is terrible. And I’ve done my fair share of LSD.

    • I saw the Flaming Lips at Bonnaroo this year. Best year was 2009 in Atlanta. They were positive and just pour love on the crowd and singing the classic lips songs. This year was a cliche psychedelic show, just throwing together whatever they could to be that crazy memorable show. It was actually disappointing.

      • Yikes, they were my favorite performance at Roo this year, setlist was really great, and I mean I wanted to see intense visuals from their wacky stage shows and got nothing short of that… Bonnaroo could be widely considered a “cliché” music festival… The lips are a psychedelic rock band so maybe you would have had a better time at Frank Oceans set… Def not disappointed.

        No disses to Frank, he rules too.

  19. Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see

    • If you think this is what drugs are like, you would be overwhelmingly relieved to find this video is a cheap recreation of a bath salts incident. LSD will change your life if taken appropriately.

  20. You people are boring. There were several moment in there that were downright gorgeous to look at, and the music was interesting.

    disclaimer: Beyond the Black Rainbow is one of my favorite movies of the last decade and I think William Burroughs should be on our money.

  21. I could care less about Wayne hanging out with young pop-stars. I mean, they’re are all adults, let them do whatever they want. Everyone gets way too up in arms about breaking social norms.

    That said, recent Flaming Lips “art” has been complete garage and fuck that noise.

  22. Yeah, the whole Wayne and Miley thing is kind of ridiculous, but I don’t see what the fuss is about. They’re not doing anything wrong or hurting anybody, and yeah the film isn’t good but who was seriously expecting anything otherwise? I think it’s fun to watch musicians goofing off and taking a piss sometimes, which was what I took from this. If you it’s not your thing, that’s fine. But it’s nothing to get upset over.

  23. On the plus side, it’s good to see Moby making a comeback. Right?

  24. Bitch, bitch, bitch. This is just some rich, famous people having some fun by making a stupid video and putting it online for a bit of a laugh. But you internet slugs take it SO DAMN SERIOUSLY. Criticising this shit to the Nth degree as if these people owe you something. No-one cares, especially Wayne Coyne, which is the whole point of this video.

  25. Ridic.

  26. Yes Please Maybe

  27. i just got stupider

  28. Sounds like everyones jealous that Wayne Coyne may be bangin’ Miley with his girlfriend/wife. I know I am!!

  29. The fact that this kind of video gets any coverage at all is mind boggling. Wayne has become the musician equivalent of a crazy homeless guy running through a Macy’s with his pants down.

  30. Well it was considerate of them to blur out the swastika arm bands worn by macaroni face Santa and the other character who are chasing after the brain. Seriously, did you guys know the original had swastika arm bands? Fun fact.

  31. i prefer my brain served Noel Fielding style

  32. I expect nothing less from her with the amounts of drugs she does these days

  33. I’m over it. Really. It’s sad to say, but I couldn’t be any less interested in The Flaming Lips as I am now. This is going to sound corny, but I really feel like that old Flaming Lips spirit is gone.

    I honestly think Wayne is just in some sort of midlife crisis. I remember an interview from right before the release of The Terror where they briefly mentioned Wayne’s split from his ex-wife/girlfriend. It felt kind of odd that he was so reluctant to even begin talking about the breakup and instead emphasis that the album was influenced from a dark period that Steven was going through.

    I don’t know. They’ve always been a trippy band. They’ve always been freaks. But they’ve never really played it up to such an obnoxious level as they do (I keep saying they, but I probably just mean Wayne) now.

  34. Meaningless self-indulgent wank.

  35. Yikes. Terrible.

  36. Wayne keeps on stacking those Ws and the haters stay mad

  37. This guy is in that terrible band Flaming Lips? Why does anyone care?

  38. Ugh.. I miss Flaming Lips of the early 90′s. How could a band that made In A Priest Driven Ambulance come up with this rubbish?

  39. Poor taste:
    “He wants the world’s most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession… John F. Kennedy’s brain….the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!”

    One of the saddest moments in our nation’s history. And given all the tragedy the Kennedy’s have had to endure you’d think he’d know better. Jokes relating to a Kennedy assassination are never funny.

  40. Thank god I don’t have a daughter.

  41. While watching this shit, one wonders when exactly was the last time Wayne DID LSD? Or any of them for that matter? This looks like a film made by somebody who was TOLD what LSD is like.

    • Agreed. Everything the Lips do lately reminds me of a teenager who hangs out at the store in the mall that sells incense and baja pullovers, trying to convince the cute girl behind the counter that he’s down.

  42. all the money and resources in the world could not make this art.

  43. It’s like “The Ring” but in color……..

  44. After watching Un Chien Andalou (1929) surrealist films like this always remind me that most people are quite happy in their little box and don’t like things to mess with it. I myself don’t really mind this to be all that interesting as the surrealism is a bit trite.

  45. Ummm…3 mins in…please make it stop!

  46. That was amazing

  47. I feel as tho we all just got brain washed O_o

  48. Oh moby, you have the brain[sic] to know much better than to resort to and with a NWO shill like Cyrus. Someone fetch Sinead…

  49. Poor Stephen Drozd
