Miley Cyrus makes insane, trippy video with The Flaming Lips about a stolen magic brain
The controversial pop star is back with this bizarre new drug-addled project
Warning: Video contains explicit language and nudity
The “Wrecking Ball” singer, 21, shot the five-and-a-half-minute video while recovering from the allergic reaction that hospitalised her, forcing Bangerz tour dates to be postponed.
Cyrus has shared a long-time mutual admiration with frontman Wayne Coyne, who was “lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley”.
“This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has reference to the drug LSD,” Coyne said. “Even though (Miley) was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.”
The eccentric musician went on to explain the concept of the clip, which sees electro singer-songwriter Moby star as an “evil, power-hungry cult leader”.
In brief, this megalomaniac wants John F Kennedy’s brain, which contains the original formula for LSD.
The problem is that this magic brain belongs to Miley, so a “nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak” is hired to steal it.
This mission is completed while Cyrus is unconscious in bed, but on waking she is “mega-p****ed” and enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot from a nearby spaceship to get her brain back.
The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne sings from inside a rainbow
Moby has gained “powerful rainbows from hell” which see the superfreak kill Santa and Bigfoot, leaving a baby rodent with the brain.
All the while, The Flaming Lips are “disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens”.
It remains to be seen where this crazy collaboration will go next, but Cyrus and Coyne performed together at the Billboard Music Awards and both got matching tattoos of the pop star’s late dog Floyd, suggesting this friendship looks set to stick around.
