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 »
