Miley Cyrus made a drug and nudity-filled movie with Moby and Wayne Coyne

First of all, where the hell has Moby been lately? You know, besides sitting alone in his apartment thinking about what a great artist he is and how no one understands music like he does. He seems to come out of hiding long enough to collaborate with Miley Cyrus and getting-weirder-by-the-day Wayne Coyne on a new music video/movie that’s trippy in all the wrong ways and is in no way worth watching. But please, I encourage you to do it anyway:

If this is what art is now, God help us all.

Moby Gave Up Drinking Because Someone Stole His Hat

Moby is sober now because someone stole his hat. But wait, there’s more to it than that. David Bowie, Moby’s idol (they also went on tour together in 2002) gave Moby a gift any Bowie fan would kill for: his hat from the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. And then some douche stole it. From The Guardian via Express:

About 10 years ago, I was over at his (Bowie’s) house and he gave me a present, the greatest present anyone has ever given me: the fedora that he wore in The Man Who Fell to Earth. And on the inside of the brim it said: ‘To Moby, Love David.’ I felt like I’d been given the holy grail, because Bowie is my favourite artist of all time. A few weeks later, I’d been in this terrible bar and it closed and I invited three people back to my apartment. Anyway, people were smoking crack in the bathroom, and at six in the morning I took out this hat and I was showing it off, and in the morning it was gone… I remember thinking: ‘Boy, I need to stop drinking’.

As a Bowie fan that makes me so sad. Everyone be on the lookout for this hat:

Moby Defines Music, Calls Out Britney Spears Again

Man, Moby is on fire this month. Remember that time a few weeks ago when he called Britney Spears “broken” and we were all like “daaaamn!”?  Well, it looks like this man still isn’t done ragging on Britney, and this time, he pulls poor, innocent Ke$ha into the mix as well.  In a recent interview with Spinner, Moby was asked about the musical stylings of these popular ladies, and he wasn’t shy about expressing his thoughts:

“It’s fun, but I don’t think of it as music. It’s manufactured. I appreciate it as a pop culture phenomenon and some of the songs I like if I hear them in a shopping mall or something, but it doesn’t function as music for me. Music is something that communicates emotion and integrity in a really interesting, direct way. And when I listen to the pop music you’re describing, it’s hyper-produced corporate product. That isn’t really even a criticism, but I just think calling it music is a misnomer.”

Listen, Moby, you’re a grown ass man.  You’re 45 years old.  I think it’s time to get off your high horse and go sit in your shower and brokenly sing “We Are All Made of Stars.” Not because I think you’re wrong – on the contrary, I completely agree with you – I just feel embarrassed on your behalf.

Way to get people talking about you again, though.  I mean, without resorting to recording a song with Gwen Stefani.
