I just don’t understand. I really don’t.
Other than being totally disgusted by Miley Cyrus’ new slew of photos for her album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, I’m just not shocked by her nudity anymore.
File that sentence under things I thought I would never say.
Yesterday, The Flaming Lips’ front man, Wayne Coyne, shared a photo of both Miley Cyrus and his band with their tops off, explaining in the caption that they planned to get naked in front of a naked audience and be sprayed with “white stuff that looks like milk” for Cyrus’ video for ‘The Milky Milky Milk.” You can see the Instagram post below.

Oh fuck..!!! @mileycyrus is planning a show where her, the band ( us ) and the audience are all COMPLETELY naked with milk ( well white stuff that looks like milk) is being being spewed everywhere .. It's a video ( in the works) for #mileycyrusandherdeadpetz song The Milky Milky Milk… @stevendrozd @derek_levi_brown @mileycyrus @katyweaver @spacefacemusic @rockworth @leochandler @fantastic_ley @jgeeezus @zacharyancox @alphachanneling @mugglinstagram @monamuseum @happyhippiefdn @waynez__world @weirddestiny @drc3p0 @damienhirst #flaminglips #waynecoyne #mileycyrusandherdeadpetz #theflaminglips
I’m sorry, but has anyone actually listened to this song? This is nonsensical trash under the guise of deep, psychedelic lyrics. Cyrus’ voice is dreamy and ethereal, barely intelligible over the electronic noise. “I feel like a slab of butter / That is melting in the sun / The presence melts away / Now that you are me are one.” What does that even mean? Am I too old for new music?
File that lyric under sh*t you don’t want your musically-inclined partner to write about your relationship.
This album was probably left to a streaming release because Lord knows no sensible person would have bought this recorded garbage. I want the last five minutes of my life back. If you want something to listen to, try Music Complete by New Order.
Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips will be touring together in November and December under the name “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.” They will be playing shows in Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, New York, Philadelphia and Boston. It is not known what show will be the naked mystery show, but my gut tells me it will be New York.
It’s always New York.
