Billy Corgan Would “Love” To Judge ‘American Idol’ Or ‘X Factor’

    Oh look, a non-rant-driven post about Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan. After letting off some steam about Twitter, Pitchfork, and every new artist out there, the wrestling fanatic has let it be known that he would “love” to be a judge on American Idol or X Factor. He went on to explain to Spinner that he doesn’t have any issues with either show — what about The Voice — but he does think there should be some alternatives (no pun):

    “I don’t have a problem with Idol or X Factor, I have a problem when those things are not given the proper contextual hue. If there’s an American Idol there should be a proper alternative counterbalance – if there was hair metal, there was grunge, know what I mean?”
