BILLY CORGAN SAYS HE IS NOT TAYLOR SWIFT’S FATHER, BECAUSE BILLY CORGAN ‘DOES NOT EXIST’
Written by broebling on July 27, 2018
An internet meme pointing out facial similarities between Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan and Taylor Swifthas come to our attention. But the only reason we’ve heard about it is because Corgan himself addressed it. Over the course of two lengthy Instagram posts, he denied any possibility that he is her father. However, his alibi is not that he did not have a sexual relationship with Swift’s mother in early 1989, but rather that there is no “Billy Corgan.”
He starts off acknowledging that it’s an unserious accusation. “I’ll take the compliment of the comparison here despite the fact that I guess the jokes on me? (and not the lovely and talented Miss Swift),” he wrote, before beginning a discussion on the question of identity, between real and constructed images, that have popped up in the digital age. He offered his own life story as an example.
