New Wayne Coyne’s jumping on the headdress controversy bandwagon…


This past weekend, Wayne Coyne and his girlfriend Katy Weaver were in LA drinking Mountain Dew with Shaun White, working on some projects for Funny or Die, and probably snorting a lot of cocaine.

While there, Wayne decided to pay homage to his good friend Christina Fallin (a.k.a. Hipster Boo Boo) by snapping some pics of his girlfriend, a couple of posers, and a dog posing in a Native American headdress. Because he’s such a wild rebel, he then posted the pics to Instagram.

Check it out:

Yawn. I was expecting some nudity, too.

Anyway, this charade is about as surprising as Wayne walking around in a hamster ball. In fact, it’s hard to believe he didn’t do something like this sooner. Like just about everything else New Wayne Coyne does in life, he obviously posted this for the shock value, attention, and to hide the fact that he’s a 53-year-old sellout who’s best years are way behind him.

Seriously, I really hope people don’t get too pissed off or offended by this. By doing so, you’re basically letting New Wayne Coyne win. Instead, people should call out Wayne for being a coward and not posting any photos of him wearing the headdress. I guess he’s fine making his girlfriend, hipster cronies and a freaking dog look like disrespectful idiots, but he didn’t have the courage to do it himself. He probably didn’t want to jeopardize the sponsorships that fund his new rock star lifestyle. Stick it to the man and be a rebel… to a point.

And just to be clear, he did this out of homage to Christina Fallin. Birds of an attention crazed feather flock together:

I’m honestly not sure what’s sadder. Is it that 1,447 people liked the demeaning photo, or that Wayne Coyne’s shock art is being inspired by Christina Fallin? Her creativity is about as authentic as a box of pancake mix. That’s a new low for a man that’s getting pretty damn good at hitting new lows. Expect him to issue a condescending apology letter where he tries to defend his obviously contrived attempt for attention and haters. It will probably be a lot like Hipster Boo Boo’s letter, but with some casual “mother fuckers” and “freaks” thrown in for effect.

Like I usually do with posts about the New Wayne Coyne, lets take a look back and remember the Old Wayne Coyne. Here’s a video of the commencement speech he gave to the students at Classen School of Advanced Studies in 2006. It’s sincere, thoughtful, touching, and given by a totally different person.


  1. Does it strike you that no one here would ever have known about W.C. pic antics were it not for you giving him a stage. Like most everything you do Patrick, it winds up looking personal.
    Additionally, the shot of Christina is one of the most beautiful examples of photography I’ve ever seen on internet.

    • I agree Zeke. They really captured that blank, dead stare while focusing on her washed out, “I’m from Oklahoma but I’ve never been in the sun!” skin. Her mother, who is governor of “Native America” is probably posting this picture on the fridge in the kitchen, as opposed to the one in the garage that holds 20 miller lights and 3 bags of Bil Jac and has become the main gallery of Christina’s “atrocities against Indians” series of fingerpaintings.

  2. I hate to say this, but with Wayne consistently redefining “rock bottom”, I won’t be surprised when I get a Celebrity Death Alert email with his name on it

  3. Wayne Coyne jumping on the bandwagon? He walked around an entire Polyphonic Spree concert wearing a headdress at Cain’s a few years back.

  4. Wayne Coyness is a freaking whack job ingrate. Where is the rainbow exploding out of a vagina in the background of his graduation speech video? Oh, not appropriate? When is that appropriate anyway exactly….

  5. I’ve yet to see how wearing a “headress” is demeaning to anyone. Is it demeaning when someone other than a cowboy wears a cowboy hat or cowboy boots, anyone other than a Hispanic person wears a sombrero/pancho, and so on. The headress while a symbol and with special meaning to Native Americans, still is an article of clothing, a hat. One could argue that by wearing one, you are honoring them versus demeaning them. Being a caucasian american, I by gawn better not catch any non-white, non-american ever, and I mean “ever” wearing a pilgram outfit, EVEN on Thanksgiving, I be all on them like Wayne Coyne on a free drink!

    • It doesn’t really matter why it’s considered offensive, why can’t we just take them at their word that it is? I’d agree that a lot of times it can worn innocently or that it’s a grey area. I didn’t know myself for a long time that it was considered offensive, but I’ve since learned and have chosen to respect that. The main problem is that it’s been clearly established now that it’s considered offensive and people go on wearing it, prodding those who’ve spoken up, essentially challenging them to prove it. It’s not like it’s lying around your house and you accidentally put it on your head on your way out the door to work in the morning, it’s a deliberate statement.

  6. God, I miss the old, genuine Wayne. This replacement just has a different, evil face. The Lips should just move to Los Angeles. It’s not like they care to play around here anyway.

  7. So he’s making light of people taking the situation too serious. I think people should take his lead and lighten up.. It’s a short life.
