Wayne Coyne’s Twitter page is a strange place at the best of times. I mean, where else could you go to watch as a “little cat with broken leg chews up a butterfly.” But this week, as the Flaming Lips teamed up with singer Erykah Badu for the video to their version of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” things got weirder still over at @waynecoyne.
Judging by the photos that Coyne has tweeted, the visuals for the Heady Fwends track centre on footage of Badu immersed in various different fluids. There is glitter, blood and what Coyne rather alarmingly refers to as “a tub full of fake semen.”
Due to the nature of the video, many of Coyne’s stills seem to show Badu completely naked. Doubtless the singer, whose nudity in her 2010 track “Window Seat” saw her charged for disorderly conduct, will not be fazed by the images – especially now that she has Alice Cooper in her corner.
UPDATE: Badu has clarified the identity of the nude in Coyne’s photos. “Those nude photos posted by Wayne (flaming lips) are of the beautiful Nayrok my lil sister and bestee,” she explained through Twitter. “We do look alike.Video looks cosmic.”
