Miley Cyrus stars in a new video with her pals, The Flaming Lips, and the clip is… interesting.
In the video, dubbed “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain” – which the 21-year-old filmed while bedridden after her allergic reaction to an antibiotic earlier this year – Miley is seen smoking a joint, drooling and screaming expletives.
Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne explained the clip’s concept to Rolling Stone (who premiered the video).
“This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD,” Wayne said. “We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.”
The clip doesn’t contain any actual music (just sounds), and also features full-frontal nudity, Moby, and a lots of color.
According to Wayne, the concept of the video is Moby as an “evil, power-hungry cult leader,” who wants JFK’s brain, as it holds the original formula for LSD. Miley has the magic brain. Moby enlists a “nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak” to steal the brain from Miley while the singer is in bed in a drug-induced coma.
”[Miley] enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot (that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain,” he explained to the mag. “They have a relentless pursuit, all the while [Miley] laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain.”
