Billy Corgan is not Taylor Swift’s father, confirms Billy Corgan
Posted on 30 Jul 2018
By abc-digitalIn 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.
