Miley Cyrus is really something else. When I think of Miley, musical acumen isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In fact, I’m convinced that term temporarily erases itself from the human brain while watching “Blonde SuperFreak Steals The Magic Brain,” a Flaming Lips and Miley collaboration. As I see it, the video seems to be a warning to those that like to delve into using LSD. I picked that up early; one minute in, Miley’s asleep in bed with two bottles of pills open, the pills scattered before her.
She holds a handful of purple-pink stuff, which represents a brain. Anyway, a Flaming Lips member, sporting a hoodie, wants the brain back and sends a soldier out to retrieve. “That bitch Cyrus has the brain!” he exclaims. “Go! Go get me the brain!”
Miley sends an alien-faced Grinch and a moose-looking man out for it. Her army of two hunts her down and toss the naked woman in their trunk, only to get beat down later. The hooded figure never gets what he wants. Mix in a few images of a female’s face spitting pink goo, a beetle and the naked woman drinking sips of water at the beach, and there you have it. One more thing-there isn’t a single note of music in this video.
This video has to be the least substantial one the Flaming Lips have ever had out there, but that’s fine. Not every video or song is meant to lift the art form. I’m not at all surprised that Cyrus was a part of this. At least she worked with a band she likes. Good for her and her fans.
LSD users, depending on the amount taken, can suffer from paranoia, disassociation, flashbacks and depression.
