It seems like sometimes being a rockstar and suicidal tendencies go hand in hand, and in a recent interview on Last Call With Carson Daly the Smashing Pumpkins’ mastermind Billy Corgan admitted that he has considered committing suicide several times.
“I almost killed myself about three or four separate times. I literally started planning my death and what I would leave behind, and what I was gonna write. Three or four times in my life.” The singer went on to say, “What I finally realized, at least on the back end of this, is that God, at least as I understand God, was there all along. Once I was able to process my reality in that way, I no longer felt like a victim.”
