Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz--perhaps better known as the Flaming Lips--have shared a new video for their track, "BB Talk." The video features Cyrus dressed as a baby and was co-directed by the pop star alongside Diane Diamond Martel.
The "BB Talk" visual follows the stunning kaleidoscopic video the singer released for Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz standout, "Lighter." Besides that, and her toned-down classed-up appearance in A Very Murray Christmas, the last few times we've caught up with the singer she was either making waves with her totally NSFW collaboration with Terry Richardson for Candy Magazine or rocking a prosthetic penis on stage at the start of the Milky Milky Milk Tour.
With the star's recent slew of NSFW stunts and styles, it's a bit weird to watch her rolling around in a diaper and baby bonnet with an oversized bottle in hand, throwing tantrums in a crib and food from a high chair, chilling in a onesie with huge stuffed animals and taking a super sudsy bubble bath with an enormous blow-up duckling. However, towards the end of the video, the singer reminds us who we're dealing with by smoking a baby bottle-shaped bong. Watch the "BB Talk" video below.
As the Huffington Post reports, some choice lyrical moments from the song that are given a whole new context once paired with the new visual include "F*ck me so you stop baby talkin," "You know it's sweet and you couldn't be more opposite of my last d*ckhead but you know I don't know if I can get over the f*cking goo" and "Why the f*ck would I want to lick your teeth? But I do."
As much as the new video might creep many viewers out, a little discomfort with Cyrus' reversion is nothing compared to the singer's disdain for baby talk and public displays of affection. While it's admittedly unsettling seeing the typically hyper-sexualized, often naked star dressed like--and acting like--a big baby, it's pretty clear that the video is intended not to shock but instead to literalize and thus call-out baby talk, both in intimate scenarios as well as, apparently, in front of one's parents.
The singer previously unveiled the baby theme on stage while touring with the Flaming Lips. As Rolling Stone reports, her costumes on the tour included a golden, thonged onesie as well as a fat-baby suit much like the Sumo babies featured in the video. The outfit was completed with a bejeweled baby bottle and was followed by a stripping routine that, of course, involved a diaper.
