Billy's weight gain
 
Okay, before I start off, I don't care how much Billy weighs, as long as he's melting my face. I'm no athlete myself. But has anyone noticed that Billy was near Anorexia in 2008 and now he's got quite the beer belly on him now? What happened? haha

I do notice however that he seems much happier on stage now than he did in 07 or 08, so I think that's probably the more important thing

yeah...the skin tight shirts aren't looking so good.

null123 10-24-2011 08:49 PM

yeah I did notice

Personally im very much enjoying this new development

Nothing like a big bald burly bear
He should grow a nice beard and take up pipe smoking!
Would love to play with that pot belly and slap his fun little new tits around and tug those hard nips...yummy

Bill is pregnant

He is a 44 year old dude, who just spent 4+ months in a studio everyday-

makes sense-

He could skinny as a rail like Skoot Weiland and just tour once a year until he milks enough money out of his greatest hits to pay off his drug habbit and then when he does... he gets sick and cancels the tour-

oh great this shit again

dodoz 06-12-2014 04:07 AM

Of course, we did notice. I think Billy might have an eating disorder of some kind (I have one myself and it sucks), actually I think I remember him alluding to it at some point, referring to "Siamese Dream"(I wish I could remember and find the quote/source). A way for him to deal with pressure and anxiety ? This could be totally wrong and sound completely stupid but take a look at the Metro 93 DVD, or at the MTV Europe acoustic set from 93. Billy's by no mean fat, he's just a little soft and his face is a bit fuller, you know. Just coming out of months of writing and recording SD, which was a very tough period personally and a low point in the band's career. Billy looked a lot slimmer during the 94 Lollapalooza shows ("The lost 94 tapes" for instance), of course, sweating it off on stage does help.
Same for "Mellon Collie" - he looks a bit fuller in the "666" tapes than a few months prior and by 96, he's "back to normal". Some people could say "sitting on your ass at home writing songs, of course you're gonna put on weight" but in Billy's case it's always quite fast, don't you think? In 2008 he was quite scary, honestly (but in rock n'roll, it's fine to be emaciated, hardly noticed, but you can't be "fat". What the hell...).

How was billys weight on 12th September 1995?

MyOneAndOnly 06-12-2014 08:58 AM

just because his weight fluctuates doesn't mean he sufferes from disordered eating. it's more likely that he's just a lazy fuck with low self of steam

juliana 06-12-2014 09:37 AM

Just wow....

It is not abnormal for weight to fluctuate over a year or more. It doesn't mean you have an eating disorder.

just because you're a lazy fuck with low self of steam doesn't mean you don't have an eating disorder.

MyOneAndOnly 06-12-2014 10:19 AM

some of my favorite billy moments are watching him eat lettuce and drink tea in IAGW. dude had what we call "control". It's great thinspo. Now I look at the Oceania video and it's reverse thinspo

shut the fuck up, scotty.

Stress and binge eating, don't remember the source, but he did address it.

Thanks pavementtune.

Self of steam : term used by members of the population that never advanced past third grade trying to say "self esteem" (urbandictionary.com).

Lol @ people thinking weight fluctuation means eating disorder! Just because you see him in videos with many months in between doesn't mean something drastic happened.

Also many binge when stressed, it is a typical symptom of stress. Quit putting your own diagnosis on corgan.

dreams of glass 09-10-2014 01:52 AM

Isn't that the elephant in the room? Billy has an eating disorder? I would think we;ve all noticed his weight fluctuation over the years. Sorry, I'm new to this board.

There;s a youtube vid where he talks about he was physically abused as a kid/teenager and he used to cut himself, do sleep deprivation, how he was really OCD about his baseball cards etc. He's been pretty open about it. These are all coping mechanisms for abuse AFAIK.

Butt Pope 09-10-2014 02:16 AM

Maybe he's just a little fat. It happens.
