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 has finally released some new music for the fans that have been waiting, but unfortunately it’s just a feature. The singer made an appearance on The Flaming Lips’ new single “We a Famly” which sounds like a song made under the heavy influence of drugs.
The new track was released on Thursday and is the first song Miley and the group have released since their collaboration on “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.”
Listen to the new track below.

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.
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 →
She appeared before the crowd in some of her most outrageous costumes to date. Miley first took the stage as a unicorn, then wore nothing but a unitard which exposed fake breasts and a strap on. She also got frisky with Amazon Ashley, her 6’7 dancer.

At least according to Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne, there will be some very revealing moments on Miley Cyrus’ upcoming “Dead Petz Tour.” Yesterday, Wayne claimed that Miley Cyrus and the rest of the Flaming Lips/Dead Petz ensemble will be playing naked at least once while touring.
And it doesn’t stop there. In his Instagram post, Wayne reveals that not only will Miley and her friends will be doing one show completely in the nude, but the audience will also be naked – and sticky with white goo. That’s because everyone will be covered in “white stuff that looks like milk” which will be “spewed everywhere.”
The reason? The show will be filmed as a music video for Miley’s song “Milky Milky Milk.”
The “Dead Petz Tour” will hit six cities, starting in Chicago on November 19th and ending in Boston on December 6th. Miley and the band will also make stops in New York, Washington, Detroit and Philadelphia. No word yet, however, on which lucky city – or cities – will get a naked concert.
Assuming Wayne is not joking, what do you think about Miley’s latest concept? Would you show up to an event ready to get naked and covered in white goo for a Miley Cyrus video?
