The Showdown Of Those Who Go Down On Simpleton!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsJessica SimpsonJohn Mayer


Get ready for some fighting words!

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has something he'd like to say to John Mayer. It isn't very friendly, but then neither were John's "sexual napalm" comments towards Billy's new gal, Jessica Simpson.

Billy was asked to comment on John and his most recent bout of word vomit. Billy replied:

"He's trying to destroy his career. Rather than take a year off or change his musical direction, some part of it is irritating his soul to the point where he's trying to blow it up. Certainly a talented guy, but empathetically, standing on the sidelines, it's hard to watch someone literally burn their career to the ground speaking as somebody who's done it…I think for any person who has celebrity to sort of drop rocks at somebody else's feet like that, there’s things you should really just keep your mouths shut on. There's things that should just be left alone."

To be brief, he's saying you have no class and no career left, John. We think a lot of people would agree on that assessment.

Something you'd care to say back to Billy? We know how much you love to hear yourself talk so don't deny yourself the pleasure or us the guffaw at your expense.

    Um, sounds like a professional critiquing another professional, in a professional manner, although other said professional doesn't behave very professionally. I wouldn't know though, for I am not a professional. This is my confessional that I am not a professional. I just wrote a Smashing Pumpkins song just now! I AM a professional!! I must go shave my head and bask in my own coolness.

    Wow, is this the Two Horsemen of the Douchebagapocalypse or what?

    I wouldn't know which one to choose- they're both shitty. John Mayer can be sometimes funny, and his music isn't horrible, just boring. So I choose him over that bald untalented fuck.

    Johns career isn't going down hill. I doubt it will any time soon. He has a huge fan base. Hes still SELLING OUT concerts and selling a ton of records. Hes a multi platinum artist and has a couple of grammys under his belt. Those comments won't ruin his career.

  4. 4

    John is an asshole. He started off by talking about past relationships and the media attacked him. Women every where were pissed. Who the fuck wants their business out there like that? After that fizzled, he did that fucked up interview. It's like he wants people to hate him. You're talented Mayer, think before you speak.

  5. 5

    I like what billy said, he and Jessica are taking the high road like adults and letting class-less, childish and bitter mayer run his retarded mouth. some people really are tactless and cant' help themselves anymore. who cares about mayer anyway his nickname should be STD..

  6. 6

    Oh My God!! Let it fucking go already… i love you Perez but John Mayer does not want you so all your constant bashing on him just makes you look like a jealous loser.

  7. 7

    billy corgan is a has been rocker, who needs to mind his own business…this story would have died weeks ago if Jessica Simpson let it go and not try to gain some pity publicity…seems the napalm whore is using this to get people to feel sorry for her…you jump in the sack like a ho, you'll be treated like a ho!

  8. 8

    What does Billy Corgan know?! No one's talking about his ugly ass..

  9. 9

    billy's just trying to help. quit trying to start shit. i know it's your job, but come on….

  10. 10

    Billy Corgan is not a has been, he is a true iconic talent! TSP are and always will be amazing. And if John had any sense whatsoever he would take this advice and run with it. Nobody even likes him anymore that I am aware of. And Billy is right, it seems like John is trying to self destruct and ruin the little ounce of fame that he has. I read the interview to Playboy in its entirety and he was being a genuinely arrogant idiot.

  11. 11

    no career left..? i think he'll be alright. i just downloaded one of his songs the other day on itunes btw haha

  12. 12

    well put.

  13. 13

    Billy is right, but he's wrong about the career aspect. John is a brilliant artist that has a good career ahead for him still. He's still pumping out hits so to all their own.

  14. 14

    are you kidding perez? John's career in no way is going downhill, his concerts are STILL sold out. He's been in Texas for a little while, and so many of my friends have gone, were dying to go. And everyone who went (including me) LOVED HIM. He was amazing. He is amazing. He'll be around for awhile.

  15. 15

    Like Billy Corigan has any room to talk. One of Mayer's former crew members use to work for Billy and basically said in a nice way that Billy is an ass. Billy hasn't had a hit in 15 years and now he's banging that dumb ass door knob Simpson. Mayer has achieved more in the last year than Billy EVER has. So STFU Perez, you and Billy can talk about how you wish you could be as rich and famous as John Mayer.

  16. 16

    Here we go again Perez… I guess when you say that John has "no career left," you forget that he is selling out packed arenas while on a major tour. You speak only opinion - and you sound like a moron when you rip apart and judge those who have and will have more REAL talent than you could ever dream of.
    I'm the first to agree that John mispeaks sometimes and says silly things - we all do sometimes, WE ARE HUMAN - but you must also take into account that he is one of the most gifted musicians of our time and there is no way you can deny it.
    You're so judgemental and uninformed, and really a sad, sad man.

    John Mayer has no career left? Coming from the fat ass that sits on his ass all day and talks shit about people…you have absolutely no right to talk. Everyone in LA hates you, unless they are part of your gay pride community. It's sad that you have to bring yourself so low to make yourself feel so good. I can't wait until your demise, it is long over due, and something that is inevitable. You're classless. You're completely irrational and your head is screwed up beyond repair. One of these days a Celeb is going to see you on the streets and make what Will.I.Am did to you look like child's play.

You know, Mario, it's real sad that a person like yourself, who has been in the business for years now, that you still have absolutely no respect amongst your peers. You wonder why you speak so badly about people? Its because they all hate you. You, feel like you have to be an asshole in return. If you weren't such a dick, I would almost feel bad for you. Drama Queen. Oh, by the way; whenever I'm having a bad day, I watch the video you posted shortly after your deserving punch in the face from Will.I.Am.

    hes not going down hill by any means hes just as amazing as ever

  20. 20

    They are both wash ups that sold out a long time ago.

  21. 21

    Who cares about what Billy Corgan thinks he is so passe the only reason he is in the media right now is because he is riding the coattails of Jessica Simpson. I really don't think that John Mayer needs career advice from that moron. By the way Perez you are obsessed with him. Mayer said something stupid drop it we all make mistakes.

  22. 22

    Wow..words of mature insight and wisdom from Billy Corgan?!!

    Who knew?…..He did hit the nail on the head though.

    mayer needs to shut up….go take a time out in some corner (of the world) and come back when he grows up and his brain develops some more.

  23. 23

    Umm wow I love you Jess but way to date an effing idiot. John Mayer in effing amazing….I just saw him monday night and it was the best concert I have ever seen. Who is hell cares about the Smashing Pumpkins anyway there not exactly a-listers!

  24. 24

    Actualy Perez, I dont this that that is what Corrigan was saying at all. Maybe you shoud have your writers take a college literature class cause their interpretation seems to be a bit off. I think Corrigan, while rightfully unimpressed with Mayer's comments is actualy being empathetic (look it up) by saying that he needs to take some time off instead of trying to self destruct. John Mayer has one of the hottest careers in Music right now. Just cause he doesnt want YOU doesnt mean his career is falling apart. Give it a rest Perez, you look pathetic as it is, and now you look even more desperate by "writing" things that are obviously not true because they fit your agenda. Shame on you.

  25. 25

    You're in love with John Mayer and you can't handle the rejection. Face it.
    John Mayer will always have fans, his career is not over.

  26. 26

    OMG!!! This is old news. Billy must need publicity bad to get involved in the stupid John Mayer incident. Everyone get over it already

  27. 27

    Jess sounds like she's taking this as a compliment now. Did you read her comments to Letterman? She repeatedly says, it could have been alot worse. I see her point, John could have said she was terrible in bed and boring. I think she is liking the attention now. Come on John, tell us how Maniston was in bed.
    I wonder how many STDs have been spread now from John to Jess to Tony and Maniston. ewwwwwwwwwwww
    Nick Lachey is lucky she was a virgin when they wed. I bet she didn't give him anything in their marriage too.

    I'm Mayers #1 Fan, seen him live 4-5 times….bought all his Cd's from 1st to last and even I AGREE WITH BILLY CORGAN'S STATEMENT. That says alot about what a douche bag he has become…. Love his music to bits and pieces tho and I can't wait to see him live. in two wks he is coming to my city…and it's bittersweet it really is cuz I love him artistically but personally, he spills a little bit too much TMI for my taste and that's an understatement. The guy is a solidified rock star. no one can deny that, I don't see him loosing his GOD GIVEN talent any where in the near future. However, DEAR JOHN: If YOU ARE READING THIS….coming from a TRUE, ROCK SOLID FAN…. personal detailed comments of your private life, should be kept as such. There's only so much we want to know…..You disrespected her, and even I got offended. YOu came from a woman, you respect a woman. That being said…. you are one of the few musical geniuses of our time…I've seen you live every single time you come to my town, bought every single CD, including the very first and I LOVE you STILL.

  29. 29

    John has no career left? You are so stupid, Perez.That's why he has one of the top selling tours this year, yeah no career. FOOL!

  30. 30

    Honest to God, I love you, but when you shit talk John Mayer it's such a pissoff. He says stupid things, EVERYONE does, stop acting as though celebrities owe us something. He made a mistake, and it's between him and the people he loves and he's hurt. I don't think he's obligated to apologize to his fans, but he does it, because even though he runs his mouth from time to time, he has the sense to realize it's wrong. He's so talented, how about you focus on that.

    jessica simpson should be pleased with these comments. i mean she got to sleep with john mayer and she's not even that pretty. she should be praising the lord that she got to sleep with the hottest most talented guy in the world! also, john mayer is incredibly talented. if you have ever been to one of his shows, you would know that this smashing pumpkins dude comparing his career to john mayer's, is just an absolute joke. there's no way these comments ruin john's career, cuz i just went to one of his concerts, and people still love him no matter what he says.
