Why Is Wayne Coyne Tweeting Naked Pics of Erykah Badu? (NSFW)

It's definitely a double-take of a headline—"Wayne Coyne Tweets Naked Erykah Badu Pics." There's definitely at least two or three weird things about that sentence. First off, it's surprising that Wayne Coyne, lead singer of Oklahoman alt-rock heroes The Flaming Lips, would even be hanging out with Erykah Badu (though apparently we missed their "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" cover collab from a few weeks ago). Second off, and probably more importantly, the idea of him tweeting naked pics of Badu seems like kind of a big deal—famous people don't often tweet nude photos of one another unless they're making some sort of point. (At least it usually has more of a disclaimer than "Yep!!!!! That glitter really worked!!!")

Then again, if there are two people in popular music that realize what a big deal public nudity isn't, it's Coyne and Badu. Nudity is a long-time standby of Flaming Lips concerts (live and/or in projection), and of course, we all remember Badu's strip-walk down the streets of Dallas before getting assassinated in the "Window Seat" video. Presumably she's OK with the tweeting, otherwise we probably would've heard more of a stink about it by now. In any event, we're certainly looking forward to seeing just what the hell this "Furst Time Ever I Saw Your Face" video is gonna end up being.
