Courtney Love drama isn’t hard to come by… on a daily basis. Today’s episode, however, strikes me as different, namely because Billy Corgan, her former collaborator, lover?, and cool-headed 90s grunge alum, flew off the handle on Twitter. There are a lot of insults one could hurl at someone like Love (her ridiculous money, aka drug, issues, relationship with her daughter, Frances Bean, etc.), but Corgan took on the whole lot. Antiquiet articulated the drama quite well, but I’ll offer a few choice tweets from the sole original Smashing Pumpkin as proof that this beef just got real below…
On songwriting, Corgan tweets: “if you can’t write your own songs maybe you should just be happy that you fooled someone into doing your work for you..”
On that sweet Nirvana dough: “maybe you should go some[where] nice+live off your husband’s money, u know the money he made for writing all those great songs.”
On Frances Bean: “the world is aware of your lack of responsibility, as seen in the gov’t taking away your parental right. Only you could abandon! …Only u could abandon such a beautiful, incredible child who is smarter than u, cooler than u, and better than u. Oops, did I say too much?”
Nope, u just about covered it, Billy.
