The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne has said that he rates Miley Cyrus' 'aesthetic' over Lady Gaga's.

When asked if he was a fan of the 'Wrecking Ball' singer, the frontman said he thought she was "fun". He told Rolling Stone: "I like her aesthetic more than Lady Gaga, who this year to me feels like, "Take me serious" and Miley's like, "I don't give a fuck," which to me is always a lot more fun. I really like that thing where the people are inside the rainbow and they walk around. I just like that sort of stuff."

He added that all music is "personality driven", saying: "All music is never just about the music. It's personality driven and it's about the way they make news and what they say when they're in the news. All that stuff plays into whether you like it or dislike it. I'd say it’s fun. I'd much rather have someone up there smoking pot and really living it and not worry about the consequences."

The Flaming Lips' cover of The Stone Roses 'Elizabeth My Dear', reportedly featuring pop star Ke$ha on backing vocals, was recently revealed online. Scroll down to listen to the track. The US band released their Stone Roses covers album, titled 'The Time Has Come To Shoot You Down… What A Sound', on November 29 as part of the Black Friday releases. The vinyl only release was limited to 500 pressings with copies of the album now changing hands on eBay.

Stereogum reports that Ke$ha's vocals appear uncredited on the cover version. Earlier this year, frontman Wayne Coyne said that the collaborative album between his band and the pop singer is now no longer happening. Tweeting on November 7, Coyne said that it was a "sad" situation but couldn't tell fans why the project had been pulled. He wrote: "As of now ...sadly there will be no Lip$ha.... I can't say why... It is sad...".
