Does the relationship ever feel just a bit strange?
Wayne Coyne: I know it seems strange or seems impossible to some people. It’s like, how the fuck? Why the fuck would you guys even care about each other? But the reality is that she is not like the way people think she is and I’m probably not the way people think I am either. We’re just people who love music. I really love her. I’ve been around her and seen the way she works. She’s just fuckin’ cool. We get these weirdoes involved and have fun and get to know each other. If you’re in my world then that’s what we’re going to do, that’s how we get to know each other. That’s how we got to know Miley Cyrus. If you’re in Miley’s world you’re going to make crazy music and get tattoos with her. – [The Observer]
The unlikely — but seemingly genuine — pairing of Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips brought the craziness that is their current tour to NYC on Saturday (11/28) at Terminal 5. With myriad costume changes, props, streamers, glitter and more, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz was a spectacle that may have rivaled Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, complete with Pornicorn.
“Still, as much fun as it is to see her do her bad-bitch routine dressed as a stick of butter, or prance as an apocalyptic ponygirl in a chrome harness sporting a massive, perhaps 18-inch corkscrew dildo — the moments of transcendence were when Cyrus was on her own, less concerned about us: at the piano, howling a eulogy for her departed fish; doubled over, screaming “What does it mean?!” at the floor; or the moment when she ripped off her fake dreads in fuck-this-shit earnestness. It suddenly felt like this is the Miley we’ve been waiting for — or rather, the Miley we really deserve. [Jessica Hopper @ Rolling Stone]
