Billy Corgan spoke with the Chicago Tribute about plans to release 44 new Smashing Pumpkins songs for free online due to his frustration with the music industry, as well as his much publicized collaboration with Jessica Simpson, which the 42-year-old said was for her coming VH1 reality show, ‘The Price of Beauty’.
“She asked me to help her out on the theme song for her new TV show,” Corgan explained. “(The show) has an interesting concept. She goes around the world to show how different people perceive beauty. I ended up writing part of (the theme song). It has a little bit of an alternative rock edge, but it’s still very pop-y.”
