The 10 Most WTF Moments of 2012
Brown denied it of course, saying it was this half-dead zombie girl, but think of how shortsighted this idiocy truly is. You should never get a neck tattoo in the first place. Rihanna only responded by getting an equally terrible tattoo underneath her rack. Blegh.
I guess Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together, which is kind of sad, but also kind of shows how powerful forgiveness is. Yeah, the couple has denied their relationship status to the press, but that makes sense if they want to avoid a lot of unnecessary attention. Yet, if that's true, explain to me why RiRi is Instagramming (Is that a verb? It is now.) photos of her cuddling up to Breezy. I want to believe these people were born without the ability to use foresight, (or pick decent nicknames for themselves) but they're probably just screwed up.
The Flaming Lips frontman has done everything this year from selling his collaborator's blood to recording a War of the Worlds-like radio special concerning a human faced tumor on his leg. When TSA discovered a disarmed grenade inside his suitcase, it caused huge delays at Will Rogers Airport, causing one traveler to lose $1,000. Coyne agreed to compensate the traveler by dropping acid with him, which is enviable.
But perhaps the most controversial thing to happen to Coyne this year was his Twitter spat with Erykah Badu. The two were filming a music video for a cover "The First Time I Saw Your Face" that, true to Flaming Lips style, featured lots of weird fluids. Coyne prematurely tweeted a few images and Pitchfork premiered a rough cut of the video, causing Badu to balk that it wasn't what she agreed to appear in and it was posted without her permission.

The controversy garnered the video thousands of more views, but in the end Coyne just reshot the video with Amanda Palmer instead. Speaking of which...
