Kliph wasn't fired for calling Wayne out on his midlife crisis b.s. (although if anyone in that band had the nuts to bring it up to Wayne, it would be Kliph!) He was fired for taking a stand against Wayne's new buddy - the daughter of OK's tea-bagging, homophobe governor Mary Fallin - when she donned a Native headdress for a racist publicity stunt. When Kliph called her out on social media for being a shithead to the Oklahoma Native community who complained about her headdress publicity stunt, she tattled on him to Wayne. Wayne actually told Kliph he was fired for insulting Fallin publicly. On a kinda-related note, word from Wayne's inner circle is that he was so geeked about getting an invite to Governor Teabagger's mansion for a party with a bunch of 20-something Republican hipster wannabes (friends of the Gov's daughter) that he was practically begging his band mates to go with, an invite that everyone else in the band felt was pretty lame and to which everyone else declined. Not Wayne tho. He and Fallin are pretty tight...he recently posted an even more offensive picture of his dog wearing an authentic looking Native headdress in response to the Oklahoma Native community's backlash against Fallin for her headdress stunt. No one in the band dares speak out on this one bc they have families to support and Wayne has bogarted all the Flaming Lips earnings and keeps them all on a pretty short financial leash. He is like the innocent little boy in Citizen Kane that just eventually went bad...it just happens to some people. He is now a full fledged, desperate-for-attention, shameless, tasteless fool. Who is smack dab in the midst of a midlife crisis...his glittery makeup is something his 20-year old girlfriend makes him do!! Hahahahaha!!!!


Personally, I feel Kliph ha's moved on to bigger and better things...

People still care about Wayne Coyne? Wake up people. It's not 1998 anymore.

fuuuuuck

Like just about everything else New Wayne Coyne does in life, he obviously posted this for the shock value, attention, and to hide the fact that he’s a 53-year-old sellout who’s best years are way behind him.

i feel like the internet killed the flaming lips.

like, if we didn't know what a fucking constant idiot wayne coyne is, we might tolerate their boring "psychedelic" "albums" a whole lot more.

His recent publicity stunts are pretty obnoxious. The obvious album covers, the collaborations with Miley Cyrus/Ke$ha, the glorification of any and all drugs... I guess it shouldn't really affect anything, but it probably does internally. Kliph is a cool guy, mostly because his favorite band is Super Furry Animals. That's something that'll earn anyone my loyalty.

I've always like Wayne and I still stand by the Lips as a band, but it is a bummer to see some of this stuff.

Wayne also brought a grenade into an airport, didn't he?

Anyways the Lips have become one of the most nauseatingly cynical bands on the scene. Everything since Yoshimi has been calculated whimsy for Mastercard ads. The fact that Wayne's a douche is only just icing on the cake.

And can heteros stop using "twink" as an insult plz, makes you sound so dumb

Yeah, that criticism is way off. The album after Yoshimi was very commercial sounding, but basically nothing they've done since then has been.

Embryonic is awesome. The band has pretty much lost the plot otherwise.
