Can You Believe How Edgy Miley Cyrus Is and Continues To Be

Miley Cyrus does drugs. Miley Cyrus does a lot of drugs. She smokes weed and pops some molly here and there. Miley's cool with drugs because she's a cool girl now. Didya hear that Miley Cyrus likes to do drugs?

In what continues to be longest and most obnoxious bout of rebellion ever, Miley Cyrus appears in a new Flaming Lips video called, sigh, "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain."

"This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD," Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne said unnecessarily.

The video, which is difficult to get through, very long and not really worth the effort, features lots of close-ups of painted mouths with pink goo dripping out of them, tie-dye graphics, multicolored "brains" and naked butts because, did I mention LSD?

Coyne describes the story behind 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!!!

There's more to the story but I'm sure you don't care. And yeah, Moby is in it also. Fuckin' Moby. I live a life such that, if Moby appears on my radar, I know I'm doing something wrong.

This is the video equivalent of that guy in your freshman year dorm who put up a Bob Marley poster on move-in day just to let everrrrrybody know that he likes to smoke the weed.

While I know she's not solely responsibly for this, ahem, project, it's very Miley of Miley to be involved. Her idea of being creative is to be as fanatically nonsensical as possible, which frankly, isn't that difficult and doesn't require much creativity.

How do we let her know that we get it so that all this can stop? We know you're edgy, girl! You're the edgiest Miley who ever Mileyed and you're super, super cool and edgy and drugs drug drugs. We get it. Leave us alone.

DISCUSSION

Resubmitting my comment from this morning's Dirt Bag:

Every time I see a headline about Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips, I wonder why more people aren't asking what the hell is going on with Wayne Coyne. Maybe most people don't care who he is. Allow me to present some facts ("facts". Internet facts.)

-Got a tattoo with Miley and his girlfriend of a bad drawing of Miley's deceased dog. As Michael K put it, at 53 years old, is way past the point of Too Old for This Shit.

-Fired the drummer (Kliph Scurlock) from the Flaming Lips over repeated disagreements, the final one being the incident with Gov. Mary Fallin's daughter.

-Is generally recognized to be a giant dick nowadays.

-Music quality has severely dropped off in the last few years.

-Dumped his wife for a groupie and has pretty publicly embraced drug use recently, despite having openly rejected in the past (and having a band member who only kicked his heroin addiction in 2012).

-Has anonymously been accused of holding the rights to the Lips' music catalog and using that as leverage against other band members who have families to support and can't afford to get kicked out of the band (can't find where I read that. Probably a comment board.)

I get that he's not a celebrity on the scale of Miley, but the dude is much more compelling/worrisome to me than she could ever be. Twerking be damned.
