Miley Cyrus' Trades "Turnt Up" For Tripped-Up In New Video

Honestly, I don't even know what I expected when I saw that Miley Cyrus made a music video with The Flaming Lips called "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain." It also stars Moby, which is cool, but also puzzling, but also cool?
I'd go into explaining what's going on (Wiggly brains! Pink goo! Naked women! Pills! Moby!), but The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne did a pretty bang-up job during an interview with Rolling Stone. He explains: "The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world's most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession... John F. Kennedy's brain....the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!! Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steal the brain from Cyrus."
The journey down the rabbit hole only gets weirder. All I know is that trippy is the new turnt and this video has me, a staunch Miley Cyrus supporter, conflicted. Proceed with caution. (Rolling Stone)
