williampcorgan Highly recommended, this talk by Monica Lewinsky around the subject of online shaming and cyber-bullying. I've never had the occasion of meeting Ms. Lewinsky but have long respected her courage and now here, in this talk, she has turned to advocacy to help others who have been shamed by a culture that often celebrates ruin through invasions to privacy and how it affects those most vulnerable (particularly our children). An absolute must watch if you want to help affect positive change or have been affected, as so many have, by the negative shifts in our cultural landscape.
And lastly, I applaud Ms Lewinsky for encouraging myself to consider (with empathy) where I have been aggrieved personally and professionally but have also have stood with the cheering mob. Something I think all of us should, with deep compassion, consider in terms of human cost.
Link is here for her speech, which lasts some 20 minutes: https://www.ted.com/talks/monica_lew..._shame/up-next

you ugly piece of shit…if i ever run into you, anywhere, at anytime, for as long as i live, i will knock your fucking lights out. don’t ever come near me, and if i hear even one more peep out of you in public about me, or the band, or the members of the band, i am gonna sue you for so much you’ll never be able to afford so much as to even make a fucking guitar cable.

you fucked up, you know it, so eat shit, shut the fuck up and accept you’ve attacked someone who tried to HELP YOU. but addicts and self-destructive people like you who HATE THEMSELVES must turn their hate out. if this is what you have to do to not kill your unhappy self, well then i’d say it was a wise decision. beyond that, you are fucking lame, dumb, and so so ugly.

Hahaha. I had to look that up. It sounded porn-y. Why not? It looks like Linda just started playing bass a week ago. Seriously. I was not in the D'arcy or Nothing camp, but if strawberry-strawberry is just learning to play for this tour, that's awful.

I had asked the New York Times last Sunday via Facebook when and how they release the interview with the Smashing Pumpkins. Their answer today:
"Thanks for writing in. We are looking into this and will follow up with you shortly."

Let's see, if this will bring new informations upon the opinion of James and Jimmy regarding D'arcy not being involved in a reunion...

Sorry Billy. You’re not a victim of cyber shaming or celebrity hating. You’re just legitimately a badperson and people are reacting to it like rational human beings by hating you

Quote:
At a conference in London, the outspoken manager touched on Madonna, his worst moments ("three deaths and a missing arm") and why Billy Corgan is credited for Q Prime's "no arseholes" policy.

He's one of the most successful, not to mention forthright music managers in the world today, so it was always likely that sparks were going to fly when Q Prime's Peter Mensch sat down for an in-depth discussion at the close of the 30th International Live Music Conference (ILMC), held in London last week.

Quote:
Working with The Smashing Pumpkins

We have a no arseholes rule at Q Prime. It's because of Billy Corgan. He was a very difficult person to work with. He's a really talented guy, just doesn't want to listen to anybody's advice -- at least as far as I could tell.

Q-Prime managed the Smashing Pumpkins from 1995 to 1998:

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/n...-team-19981113

Smashing Pumpkins Drop Management Team

By Eric Boehlert
November 13, 1998

The Smashing Pumpkins have left Q Prime management, and the band is now searching for a new handler to guide its career, which in 1998 ran a bit off track.

Q Prime spokeswoman Gayle Fine confirmed the band's departure, but offered no comment. According to Jill Berliner, attorney for the Smashing Pumpkins, the relationship between Q Prime and the band had been "strained for some time," and that "the band's vision differed with management's vision." The Pumpkins joined Q Prime's all-star roster almost exactly three years ago, on the eve of the release of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. That double-CD quickly went multiplatinum and dominated rock, and even pop, radio for much of 1996, with hits such as "Tonight Tonight" and "1979."

The Pumpkins' latest album, Adore, released six months ago, has to be considered a commercial disappointment. To date it has sold 840,000 copies, according to SoundScan, making it the sixty-eighth best-selling album of the year. In this week's Billboard, Adore drops from No. 148 to No.183.

Q Prime, run by Cliff Burnstein and Peter Mensch, is one of the music industry's best-known and successful management companies and counts on its current roster Hole, Madonna (which Q-Prime co-manages), Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Def Leppard and Bruce Hornsby. Recently, the company has expanded, purchasing half of Volcano Records (home of Matthew Sweet and Tool), and entered the amphitheater business.

Sources speculate that Pumpkin band members (and Billy Corgan in particular) may have felt the band was not getting enough attention from Q Prime.

As for where the band may land next, industry insiders are pointing to the emerging, as yet unnamed, management/record label company being formed by Gary Gersh and John Silva. Gersh resigned as president of Capitol Records last spring, and Silva has been co-president of Gold Mountain management, where he's worked with Beastie Boys, the Foo Fighters, Beck and Sonic Youth. Silva is leaving Gold Mountain and taking his all-star acts -- and possibly the Smashing Pumpkins, too -- with him and teaming up with Gersh to form a new entertainment company. (All of those acts, though, would maintain their existing record label contracts.) Berliner confirms the band is talking with Gersh and Silva, "among others."

As for the band's next move career-wise, one major label VP offers some unsolicited advice: "They need to go away for awhile -- just hide completely and not even let Billy have his picture taken."

The Pumpkins apparently disagree. According to Berliner, the band is expected to enter the studio soon, with a release due out in '99.
