Flaming Lips To Replace Erykah Badu In Controversial Video?
Wayne Coyne has revealed that he wants to replace Erykah Badu with Amanda Palmer in the highly NSFW video to "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". The controversial Flaming Lips clip shows Badu and her sister naked and in a bath of what appears to be blood and semen. It appeared online earlier this month before being removed a day later. Badu claimed that she felt "violated" by its contents and insisted that Coyne should have sent the video to her for approval. Coyne responded to her comments in this week's NME claiming that, "Erykah Badu knew what she was getting into". He also suggested that her angry reaction to the video was merely a twisted show of affection. "When she said that to me, I took it as 'I'm going to show you that the way I love you is that I'm going to scratch your face off and we're going to go for it,'" he said. However, The Flaming Lips frontman has now revealed that he intends to re-shoot the controversial clip with a more willing participant - Amanda Palmer from Dresden Dolls. He told MTV News: "At the moment I'm talking with Amanda Palmer about remaking the video and having Amanda sing it and just be in the video." In spite of the ruckus, Coyne also told the NME that he would probably work with Badu again. "It's a joy to be with people like her. If it was just me and her I would fight with her all day. It's just a video, y'know. It's a silly thing." Thanks for the report to NME.com.
