Default 'Pop tart' in Try Try Try

this is tripping me out. I just realized he's using it in the british sense [just like 'smashing pumpkins'], hence it means slutty pop star, not toaster pastry

I think it’s like calling someone pumpkin or cakes or sweetie or honey or sugartits.

No one would ever say “pop tart” in that way. Even if you said “she’s a pop tart” people would think you’re referring to pop tarts and that you mean she’s cute.

So 100% it’s WPCs idea of a “British joke” as it’s completely wrong in a “Smashing Pumpkins” kinda way (smashing does mean good but no one has ever called boobs “Pumpkins”...Melons, maybe)

Also it's Billy. So high probability that it means nothing.

But yeah, ride that rainbow!

At the time, he was upset he couldn't compete with "the Britneys of the world". So, yeah. Hence that dig.

I've heard tell the original music video consisted of Billy taking a Pop Tart for a walk in a Coffee-&-TV-esque set of scenes that ended with D'arcy quitting the band & Billiam "finding God" - arguably sadder than what was actually released
