The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne has paid tribute to the Miley Cyrus’s late dog Floyd by joining the pop star in getting matching tattoos that feature an image of the dearly departed pet.
As reported by Uproxx, Cyrus and Coyne – as well as Coyne’s girlfriend Katy Weaver – posed for pictures of their new ink, which were shared via Cyrus’s Instagram account. The tattoo contains the phrase, “With a little help from my fwends”.
Floyd, an Alaskan Klee Kai, died earlier this year. During a live performance on April 1, the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer broke down in tears before performing Fleetwood Mac’s 1975 song ‘Landslide’ as a tribute to the dog. “I’m sure you guys already know, but the reason that I’m so upset is my dog, I shouldn’t say he was my favorite but he was my favorite, he passed away,” said Cyrus. “I just wanna do a song for him. We used to always listen to Fleetwood Mac together, it’s his favorite song… so I wanna do this song for Floyd. This song is ‘Landslide’.”
The tattoos also refer to Cyrus’s recent collaboration with The Flaming Lips on the band’s remake of The Beatles’ album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. Cyrus will appear on the song ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’.
