Billy Corgan and Jessica Simpson, Sitting in a Tree, R-E-C-O-R-D-I-N-G?


Okay so maybe old elementary school taunt doesn’t really work. Nevertheless, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and Jessica Simpson, reported lovebirds, now appear to be recording together, presumably on Corgan’s new Smashing Pumpkins project. Whahuh?

Simpson’s photographer friend Kristin Burns posted a photo to her Twitter of the two together along with the message “in the studio snap of @jessicasimpson and @billy working on a song…” (The picture has since been removed.) Simpson re-tweeted the photo with the message “He braids my prayers.” Potential song title? Strange spiritual reference? Hard to say.

Corgan has been in the studio for the past few months working on his new album, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, an epic, 44-song endeavor he plans to release song by song for free online. The first track, “A Song for a Son,” is already available. It stands to reason that Simpson will appear on one or more of these upcoming singles, though at this time, that’s nothing more than speculation.
