Wayne Coyne Sheds Some Light On Kesha’s Relationship With Dr. Luke, Explains Why ‘Lip$ha’ Was Shelved

Wayne Coyne is well known to pop fans as Miley Cyrus‘ muse (her Instagram is a veritable shrine) but the Flaming Lips frontman struck a similar friendship with Kesha back in 2012. That makes the veteran psychedelic-rocker more qualified than most to comment on the diva’s stunning allegations against super-producer Dr. Luke.

The unlikely duo first collaborated on the 53-year-old’s The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends LP and then decided to record an entire album together, the near-mythological Lip$ha. “The stuff that we did together was just spectacular, and it made us want to do more,” Coyne reveals in an interview with Radio.com. “And I think we did like four or five songs, and then Kesha would remind me, ‘Wayne, I can’t put this music out, Dr. Luke will kill me.’

“I don’t know Dr. Luke at all, but when we [Kesha and I] speak, I know there’s some anxiety about their relationship,” he continues. “I think she would like to have the freedom to do more things in that spirit. Where it’s not — again, I don’t know their situation — but where it’s not producers producing her. She could produce herself, that’s probably what she is wanting to happen with her own career.” More »

Milky Chance Turn Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” Into A Breezy Folk-Pop Anthem On SiriusXM: Watch

Never Hit So Hard In Love

Milky Chance is part of the new wave of European pop (think Tove Lo, Mr. Probz and Nico & Vinz) causing major damage on the Billboard Hot 100. The German duo’s hypnotic debut single “Stolen Dance” is hovering just outside the top 50 and is expected to climb a lot higher given mounting radio support. Their cover of Miley Cyrus“Wrecking Ball” should also win them some new fans.

Clemens Rehbein (vocalist) and Phillip Dausch (producer) aren’t the first indie-pop outfit to tackle Bangerz diva’s chart-topper. Haim, London Grammar and Angel Haze have all put their own spin on the song but Milky Chance really break the song down to basics and turn it into something unrecognizable. Watch the band perform the song on SiriusXM up top. More »

Taylor Swift May Be The Only Artist To Go Platinum With An Album In 2014: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: There’s no doubt that 2014 was a lackluster year for music, and to make matters worse, no albums reached Platinum status…yet. America’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift, may be music’s saving grace. The singer’s forthcoming LP 1989 may be the first album to go platinum. All hope is gone, people! (But the Foo Fighters may have a chance.) [The Guardian]

:: Cara Delevingne (a.k.a. Rihanna‘s BFF) has reportedly been in the studio working on a new single with Pharrell. Music is a completely different field than modeling, so let’s see how this will pan out. [Hollywood Reporter]

:: Annie Lennox is pretty outspoken when it comes to feminist rights, and the legendary singer has now come forward to denounce twerking. In a recent interview with NPR, she stated: “Twerking is not feminism. Thats what I’m referring to. It’s not — it’s not liberating, it’s not empowering. It’s a sexual thing that you’re doing on a stage; it doesn’t empower you. That’s my feeling about it.” [Billboard]

:: The Beatles‘ Ringo Starr is now a model! Well, kind of. The musician will be the face of sneaker brand Skechers‘ “Relaxed Fit footwear” line. Look out for the ad campaign in Spring 2015. [SPIN]

:: Sad news for die-hard Brooklyn concert-goers. Glasslands, a DIY venue in Williamsburg, will close its doors next year. In a statement, they announced that New Year’s Eve will be their last night of music. The place first opened in 2006, and booked acts like TV On The Radio, Disclosure and MGMT. [Brooklyn Vegan]

:: Remember when all those diva rumors popped up about Ariana Grande? Well the singer isn’t too happy about it. In fact, she allegedly turned to Miley Cyrus for advice. The Instagram-loving singer apparently told Grande: “Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not. …It will blow over and tomorrow they’ll be talking about something else.” [Gawker]

NSFW: Miley Cyrus Posts Topless Instagram Pic With Aliens On Her Boobs, Her Assistant Snaps Her Naked Butt (Happy Monday!)

Sci Fi!

Miley Cyrus is currently in the midst of the Australian leg of her Bangerz Tour, and you know what that means, right? That’s right: MORE BOOBS. Pop’s most consistent stripper (sorry, Rihanna, but you’ve been slacking) took time out to catch some rays over the weekend while Down Under, and that included topless sunbathing with her assistant Cheyne Thomas.

By the time Sunday rolled around, Cyrus even found herself in bed with no pants whatsoever on, so Thomas decided, hey, why not snap a pic and post it on Instagram? Catch all of Miley’s last bout of nude antics below. More »

The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus And Moby Cover “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”: Listen

''Kaleidoscope Eyes'' Is Right

Finally, the Flaming Lips has debuted its cover of The Beatles‘ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” As initially announced, then performed at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, the psychedelic rock band’s take features wistful vocals by Miley Cyrus. However, the studio version also features Moby, techno figurehead and co-conspirator in their LSD-inspired short film “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain.”

Despite the bizarre partnership, it seemed obvious that if the Bangerz star had to cover a Beatles song, it would be “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Still, the cover is more electrifying than the original, jangly Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band take and even as it initially seemed live, with its cacophony of explosive percussion and warping radio frequency noises at the hook. More »

:: Beyonce has thrown her fair share of shade throughout her career, but who knew her hubby Jay Z was capable of the same? On a recent trip to The Louvre museum in Paris, a onlooker asked who the rapper is. His response was a quick and sly, “Who are you?” Watch it for yourself here. [Gawker]

:: Remember Miley CyrusMTV VMA dateJesse Helt? Well the young man (who gave a speech about homelessness) has been sentenced to six months in prison for violating his probation. His attorney (hired by Cyrus) asked the judge to grant Helt leniency and give him a second chance. [Pop Crush]

Miley Cyrus Whips Out Her Boobs On Instagram (Again): See The Pop Diva’s Sexy Bath Antics

It’s been a minute since Miley Cyrus stripped off for a magazine shoot or single cover, so last night’s (September 30) sexy Instagram spree will come as sweet relief for restless fans thirsting for new nudes. The Bangerz diva really came through with an alluring bath pic. She’s topless — of course — with shiny disco balls cover her nipples. Now that’s what I call ARTPOP.

The 21-year-old also shared a bath video (it’s pretty tame by her standards) and another topless pic in bed, this time with flowers covering her breasts. “I like this daisy tit edit,” she elegantly captioned the black-and-white image. When is Miley going to come back with new music? Pop is really boring without her attention-whoring ways and iconic self-promotion. See the other pics and video after the jump. More »
