Thumbs down Vice Magazine: A Brief History of Billy Corgan Losing His Goddamn Mind

A fairly mean spirited article, but hey - Vice cares about Billy!

This is a follow-up article to the original Vice article. If it's a duplicate of an existing one on the new one, then delete it for all I care.

If netphorians are saying vice is being mean and ugly....

I don't really care... this is middle aged Billy.... I like the cat pics and Billy's craziness. We're all going to get old too, and some of us, crazier.

Part of me has been wondering if Billy has a mild component of Bipolar Disorder in his head somewhere...bear with me here, we'll go through each symptom:

(1) inflated self-esteem or grandiosity

Check, haha. More seriously though, Billy does have these discrete episodes where he makes these grand plans (how many books has he said he was writing now?) that never seem to actually materialize later. These episodes are fairly well spaced out (as true manic episodes would be...)

(2) decreased need for sleep (e.g., feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep)

Unclear. Anyone been tracking post times or stalking WPC?

(3) more talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking

Also unclear, but if the internet counts (it doesn't IRL), these "bloggy" moments, which tend to coincide with his "grand/failed promises", would lean this way.

(4) flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing

Sure seems that way to us from this end. It's been hard to follow his thought process at times.

(5) distractibility (i.e., attention too easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant external stimuli)

Wrestling + Tea. Need I say more?

(6) increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation

"I'm going to make 2 albums in a year!!!"

(7) excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e.g., engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments)

Hmm...we don't know about buying sprees or his sex life (I hope no one knows about his sex life), but Does a wrestling reality show count?

-----------------------

Obviously, this is said in jest...I don't think he actually has bipolar disorder (actually none of us can tell since we aren't diagnosing him in person through a normal clinical examination), but that being said, something is extra-strange about his thought process at times and less strange at others.

Personally, I don't care. IMO, WPC has given all of us enough beautiful music that if wants to play wrestler or record 8 hour hippie shit then more power to him...he's earned the right. Still, it's an interesting academic question.

Billy probably has clinical depression. My guess is he has clinical depression as well as NPD.

I heard he's going to build a hexagonal chamber made out of obsidian, pyrite and crystals to sing his new songs in.

Micheal Jackson had a room full of mirrors where he would channel Liberace to get his melodies.


So Billy gets Darth Vader...cool.
