Is billy corgan dating anyone

Having characters who explore race or transgender issues is certainly a possibility, he suggested.

“There are ways to explore those themes in ways that are productive, create new stars and show that value-based ‘babyfaces,’ no matter what their background, no matter where they come from, can draw new audiences and inspire people in new ways.” Corgan’s thinking is necessary to stand out in a crowded field that is largely dominated by World Wrestling Entertainment and is also filled with overseas competitors like Japan’s New Japan Pro Wrestling and Mexico’s AAA Mega Championship, explained Dixie Carter, TNA’s president, in an interview.

Here’s the latest arm-twist to the field of professional wrestling: Billy Corgan – yes, that Billy Corgan – wants to use a medium that is decidedly heavy on piledrivers and figure-four leglocks to explore issues of race, ethnicity and gender.

Corgan, leader of the innovative rock group Smashing Pumpkins, has joined TNA Impact Wrestling as senior producer of creative and talent development and, as such, will have a strong hand guiding such luminaries as Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode and Jeff Hardy and their exploits on TNA’s flagship “Impact Wrestling” program that has airs on Discovery Communications’ Destination America cable network.

“I needed to find my way back to the centre,” he says.

Corgan has a long-standing interest in pro wrestling, having helped to launch Resistance Pro, a pro wrestling company based in his hometown Chicago.

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan didn't attempt suicide over the past decade - but that doesn’t mean he didn’t consider it.

As he told Rolling Stone magazine for their latest issue, until recently, Corgan's decision-making process on many mornings was choosing between eating breakfast, or killing himself.

Explaining his change of tack in a London hotel room, Corgan hunches over, as if hiding his height.

He blends insecurity, learned humility and helpless arrogance, typically comparing himself to three all-time greats in a single sentence.

Billy Corgan is still big: all shaven-headed, 6ft 3in of him.

“I should have just said to Jimmy [Chamberlin], ‘You go to rehab, and we’ll continue, and James, get the f*** out of here.’ Instead, I fell on my sword for James, for what I thought was a friend.” By 2009, Chamberlin had made an exit from the band as well. The musician nonetheless remains confident that he has a place in the industry.
