Billy Corgan is not Taylor Swift’s father, confirms Billy Corgan
ByIn case you were wondering, no, Billy Corgan is not Taylor Swift's father. Why is this news? Apparently, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman came across a meme comparing a picture of the pop superstar without makeup to Corgan, who posted the photo on his Instagram. "I'll take the compliment of the comparison here despite the fact that I guess the joke's on me (and not the lovely and talented Miss Swift)?" Corgan wrote. He then went into a lengthy, very on-brand treatise about the concept of identity that actually spilled on to a second post. Among the observations Corgan shares: "There is NO such person as 'Billy Corgan.' He does not exist. Or, if he does exist...he is a creation from my mind to yours, and no different than a cartoon drawing of Batman or SpongeBob." Corgan and original Pumpkins members James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin are currently on their Shiny and Oh So Bright tour. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
