All eyes were on Miley Cyrus during the Flaming Lips' performance on Conan Thursday—literally.

When the 21-year-old singer emerged from Wayne Coyne's enormous cellophane cape, she was wearing a nude bodysuit covered with colorful plastic eyeballs (the crafting kind)! She had on a psychedelic wig of tinsel, too, which coordinated nicely with the sparkly wreath (?) Mr. Coyne, 53, wore around his neck.

Miley joined the Flaming Lips for their rendition of "A Day in the Life," a song from their recently released Beatles cover album, With a Little Help from My Fwends. The erstwhile Disney star is featured on another album song, too—"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." Moby, believe it or not, is featured on that one, too.

Back in July, Miley starred in a bizarre, NSFW video with the Flaming Lips called, "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain." The clip also featured Moby, who, as Wayne tried to explain to Rolling Stone, played "an evil, power-hungry cult leader."

Wayne continued: "He [Moby] wants the world's most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession... John F. Kennedy's brain....the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!"

Somehow, Miley got her hands on "the magic brain," and Moby "enlists a nymph Manson girl-type blonde superfreak" to steal it back. In the video, Wayne explained that this "freak" is able to steal the brain "while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma."

"She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot (that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain," Wayne told the mag, noting that all the while, the Flaming Lips "are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens."

Oh, boy. Some of this stuff is definitely an acquired taste. As for the album itself? There's one thing everyone will like about it! Per NPR, All proceeds from With a Little Help From My Fwends benefit The Bella Foundation, an Oklahoma City organization that helps provide veterinary care to needy pet owners.
