Miley Cyrus Hits The Studio With Tyler The Creator & Pharrell
We already knew that Miley Cyrus was taking an adventurous approach to her next album — hitting the studio with Pharrell and integrating retro-soul influences into her new tunes — but we were surprised to see that she that was in the studio with a new collaborator: Odd Future rapper Tyler The Creator. Pharrell tweeted a picture of the three hanging in “the lab” last night, prompting a flurry of speculation. Sure, Cyrus is an innovator/groundbreaker/trendsetter/risktaker, but more than that, it puts a twist on their Twitter feud, which started this past August when the two artists traded jabs over Cyrus’ haircut.
@fucktyler my “barber” couldn’t even come close to the fuck job that is your face. # your right you should shut up. PS your musics dope

Admittedly, given the “your musics dope” appended to the tweet, we should have seen a collaboration coming.
No word yet on what they produced in the studio — although we suspect any collaborative effort would be likelier to appear on Tyler’s album than Cyrus’ — but fingers crossed it’s hard-hitting. A cover of Lady Gaga‘s “Hair,” perhaps?
