CNN’s Anderson Cooper takes a dig at Billy Corgan on his show. Corgan responds.

Is it just me or is Billy Corgan getting cranky as he gets older? Doesn’t he know that no one watches CNN anymore?

On a more positive note, I heard Tommy Lee is playing drums on the next Pumpkins album.

“So perhaps Billy Corgan is, I don’t know, off his alternative rocker, but I think maybe there’s more to this. Maybe he’s being ironic, or maybe when the cool rock stars start doing less rock starry things, it kind of makes us face our own mortality. See, I want R.E.M. to stay just the way I know and love them, I don’t want ‘Everybody Hurts’ to suddenly be used in an Excedrin commercial. I don’t ever want to see a product called Eddie Vedder’s Prune Jam. I want to see neither Stephen Malkmus nor Thom Yorke on the cover of AARP Magazine.”
