Drugs, drugs and more drugs, plus some drool. Actually, that might be simplifying the concept of The Flaming Lips’ latest video, which features Miley Cyrus (apparently she’s BFFs with Wayne Coyne and he got the same tattoo tribute to her dead dog?) and Moby. Wayne told Rolling Stone that the track is called “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain” (obvs) and explains the video thusly:
“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.
