While most like to use their time as a guest on The Howard Stern Show to discuss their sexual history at length, back in October, Billy Corgan used his appearance to reveal that he had seen a shapeshifter.
“Let’s just say I was with somebody once, and I saw a transformation that I can’t explain,” he said, insisting he was “totally sober” at the time. “Imagine you’re doing something and suddenly you turn around and there’s somebody else standing there.”
Pressed to reveal more about the encounter, Corgan said he didn’t have much information and would actually “rather not go into details.”
“They wouldn’t explain,” he said. “It’s up there with one of the most intense things I’ve ever been through.”
This week, he returned to the show and, like a true journalist, Stern dug deeper after Corgan admitted, “The story is even more fantastical than you think.”
When Corgan insisted he’d give up all the details off the air, Stern pressed, and Corgan blurted, “The person was naked.”
Stern then asked if the person was a man, to which Corgan repeated, “A person was naked.”
The host then jumped to the seemingly obvious: “Wait a second —were you in bed with the shapeshifter? Were you making love?”
The Smashing Pumpkins frontman avoided saying yes or no. However, Stern kept pressing, eventually asking Corgan’s bandmate, James Iha, about the incident. Likely wishing he were dead in this instance, Iha offered a reluctant, “I have no idea.”
Finally, Corgan concluded, “I can no longer discuss this.”
To recap, today we learned Corgan may or may not have had sex with a person who may or may not have shapeshifted and may or may not have been a man.
That is all we know, until he makes his next appearance on The Howard Stern Show.
