Watch Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips’ Insane New Video (NSFW)

The rock group teamed up with the controversial pop star -- and Moby -- to film their new video "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain"

How much does Miley Cyrus love The Flaming Lips? Apparently so much that the recently bed-ridden pop star didn’t let an averse reaction to an antibiotic stop her from appearing in the group’s trippy new video.

The video is called “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain,” according to Rolling Stone, which premiered the video. The footage features Cyrus and Moby fighting for possession of John F. Kennedy’s brain. (Yes, really.)

“This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD,” singer Wayne Coyne told Rolling Stone. “We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.”

The video is definitely out there, but the collaboration between Cyrus and The Flaming Lips isn’t all that surprising. During Miley’s Bangerz tour Los Angeles stop back in February, band members Coyne and Steven Drozd joined the “Wrecking Ball” singer on-stage.
