Speaking from Las Vegas — the home of his current three-year residency — John riffs about Miley Cyrus..

I mean who would have thought that [Miley would] do a record with The Flaming Lips?” John asks. “I love that kind of thing. That on the spur of the moment, out of leftfield stuff like that.  It’s like ‘I wanna see this, this is interesting’.” He continued, “I mean it’s brilliant. It feels like something that would have happened during the 60s, something someone like Frank Zappa would have done. Good for Miley. … Break the mold, girl.”
