Billy Corgan is on the cover of a cat enthusiast magazine, entitled Paws Chicago. Before we go any further, can we high-five whoever came up with the bit of cover copy ‘Siamese Dream’. Well done. Also as far as cats go, Sammi and Mr Thom are pretty damn attractive. I love black cats. Hang on, what were we talking about? Oh yes, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman is on the cover of a cat shelter mag. I mean cool. But also… really, dude? Is this what cover opportunities you’re getting these days? Would love to be a fly on the wall during the meeting where his publicist pitched this. I bet he’s like Gil off the Simpsons. Or the Publizity girls.

This latest cover doesn’t come as a surprise given the dubious activities Corgan has been involved in in the last few years, such as taking out an ad in the Chicago Tribune to get the Smashing Pumpkins back together (which sorta worked so maybe not so crazy), running a competition where the winner buys him lunch (worst comp ever?) and dating Jessica Simpson (white dude musicians LOVE her, what’s up with that?). So when you look at that history, the cat mag cover actually makes a lot of sense. Ah whatever. Do you, Billy. I’m off to see if Paws have aggregated that article on geriatric pet care to their website yet. Sounds like winner.
