Justin Timberlake Joins The Flaming Lips!

By liz

Ok, nothing like a bit of exaggeration for a headline eh? No, Justin Timberlake hasn't *really* joined The Flaming Lips but he did perform with them on Top of the Pops on Friday. The segment, which was recorded Thursday, has Timberlake appearing with the band on bass during their rendition of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Apparently Timberlake and Wayne Coyne had met earlier in the week while taping separate interviews with Radio One. Timberlake took a copy of the track to study, and came to TOTP wearing a dolphin costume until the taping actually began. What's that saying about strange bedfellows?
