In honor of The Flaming Lips’ new single “We a Family” and the band’s upcoming album, frontman Wayne Coyne sat down with The Guardian and dished on his odd friendship with Miley Cyrus. Wayne reveals that what started as a simple birthday wish has now morphed into daily communication that includes bathroom selfies. “We’ve texted each other every day,” Wayne says. “I’ll say: ‘What are you doing?’ and she’ll send me pictures of herself peeing. Sometimes it’s 1,000 times a day, sometimes it’s a couple of times a day, but we’re in each other’s lives.”

Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips’ frontman, Wayne Coyne, love to get weird. They proved as much when Wayne snapped Miley giving out Happy Hippie tattoos ahead of one very colorful gallery show this year. But when they’re not playing together, Miley and Wayne are working together. In a new interview with Westword, Wayne opens up about how working with Miley on her album “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz” led his band to some new sounds.
Miley Cyrus had an artful weekend. The singer went on a double date to a photography gallery exhibit in L.A. Miley and her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, spent the night out on the town with Wayne Coyne, the lead singer of the Flaming Lips, and Katy Weaver, his girlfriend. But before they got to the exhibition, Miley did a little artwork of her own. She took a turn with a tattoo needle.
A whole crew of people got Happy Hippie tattoos, including a 61 year old who’d never had a tattoo before.

Miley Cyrus released two of her four covers for Plastik Magazine’s winter campaign earlier this week, and she now she’s released the remaining two. On one cover, an almost naked Miley is joined by Wayne Coyne and a puppy for a cup of coffee. The room looks like it’s covered with pink frosting. On the other, Miley is surrounded by plastic wrap and seems to be stretching a sheet of it over her face.

Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne took time to discuss working with Miley Cyrus in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. The Flaming Lips and Miley are currently on their crazy “Milky Milky Milk Tour.”
Wayne tells how he first worked with Miley back in 2014 when they performed together at a show. “We started to realize how many things we had in common,” he tells EW. He goes to admit that as much as Miley was inspired by The Flaming Lips, the inspiration went both ways, “Part of the Miley Cyrus show became the Flaming Lips show and part of the Flaming Lips show became the Miley Cyrus show.”
After working together to pull off this year’s over-the-top VMAs finale and Miley’s performance on “Saturday Night Live,” touring seemed the logical next step. “Seeing each other at the worst of our stress and all that,” Wayne explains, “we were already thinking, ‘This is going to work.'”
All in all, the 54 year old musician has loved his time with Miley. “There’s a couple moments in the set where you have to remember, ‘Oh yeah, keep playing. We’re the ones doing the music, you can’t just be listening to her.’”
Even if the band forgot to play, Wayne is convinced it wouldn’t matter. Continue Reading →
