Billy corgan dating now

, and for all that this pronouncement came in the context of a conversation conducted while shooting a dog in the arse with a pellet gun, it’s a pretty succinct summation of the trajectory of innumerable creative careers. It stands up today, too, a whole lot better than the likes of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden do. Corgan was lucky enough to have a moment where everything aligned, when his art connected with a whole lot of people all around the world.

And then, as it did for innumerable musicians before him, that moment passed.

You’ve got it, then you lose it, and it’s gone forever.

I didn’t watch all eight hours of Corgan’s jam, and I’m guessing you didn’t either — so who knows, perhaps there was some stuff worth hearing in there.

(At least one author has argued that there was.) We’ll never know, though, because pretty much everyone reported the whole affair as the source of hilarity rather than any sort of serious project.

“I coveted his success that was so fast,” she began, continuing, “Not initially, I was really really really really excited for them.

When we were still platonic, I was on the ferry, Billy Corgan would not pay for my flight back from Roskilde, and Nirvana had played with the [Smashing] Pumpkins at that show, so I was on the ferry with the Nirvana guys.” Here, Love revealed her admiration for the Nirvana frontman, stating, “I had a crush on Kurt, he was gorgeous, I mean he was beautiful and enigmatic and evasive.

Of course, if you’re Billy Corgan, you want to prove that you lost it — but mostly the fans you acquired during that magic moment just want you to repeat it, again and again and again.

Corgan has complained that a significant number of his fans are “stuck in 1993,” and while it sounds kinda petulant, to some extent one can relate to his frustration.

I’m not arguing that Corgan’s been mistreated — clearly, the answer to the question of how to stay relevant into your 40s as a rock musician does not involve dispensing petulant homophobic insults to your fans or dating Tila Tequila.

If anything, he’s been given a whole lot of leeway in comparison to various contemporaries — can you imagine the tabloid feeding frenzy if Courtney Love started talking about chemtrails or arguing that H1N1 was some sort of government conspiracy to scare people?

I’d been sequestered in all girl boarding schools and the I was in a mixed co-ed juvenile hall.
