"I can't say why... It is sad," the Flaming Lips frontman posts on Twitter.
Last spring, the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne let fans know that he was working on a full-length collaboration with pop mainstay Ke$ha, who had contributed to the veteran psych-rock band's "The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends" collection. Sadly, that project, which was given the amazing working title "Lip$ha," will likely never see the light of day.
"As of now ...sadly there will be no Lip$ha.... I can't say why... It is sad…" Coyne cryptically posted on Twitter on Thursday morning (Nov. 7). He then spent the next hour or so re-tweeting disappointed fans -- two of whom speculated that Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, Ke$ha's longtime producer and co-writer, put the kibosh on the project.
