There’s a conspiracy theory going around the Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is actually Taylor Swift’s father. Yeah, really. Photos comparing the two have circulated online, eventually reaching Corgan himself. In a series of long-winded social media posts, Corgan denies the rumors… while also going on a super long existential rant.
Corgan says in the huge rant that while he takes the T-Swift comparison as a compliment, the joke is on him because there is “no such person” as Billy Corgan. A little confused? He tries to explain that "Billy Corgan" doesn't exist because he created him, "no different than a cartoon drawing of Batman or Sponge Bob.”
Corgan concluded the post trying to put “Billy Corgan” to rest once and for all, writing, “You can keep Billy Corgan, he is dead, and he’s there for you to mock and use as you wish.” You can try to make sense of the full posts below. So the takeaway from all this is basically that “Billy Corgan” is not Taylor Swift’s dad… unless you want him to be?
