Watch: The Flaming Lips join Miley Cyrus onstage to perform “Yoshimi”By Dylan Owens | February 24th, 2014 | No Comments »
At this weekend’s Bangerz tour stop in L.A., Miley Cyrus brought an unexpected guest onstage to help perform one of her favorite songs.
No, not Billy Ray for “Achy Breaky Heart.” (Though that would have made a lot more sense.) Instead, Cyrus chose psych rockers the Flaming Lips to join her for a cover of “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1.” In typical wacky uncle fashion, Coyne came out holding a balloon reading “Fuck Yeah.” Not to be outdone, Cyrus wore an oversized shirt with a print of her face on it, dropped the f-bomb all over the place and accused Coyne of being drunk.
It’s an amazing song choice, if only for the palpable confusion among the singer’s fan base in the video, though the actual performance is nothing to write home about.
