There’s a reason you don’t see Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan hanging out with other celebrity Chicago Cubs fans like Eddie Vedder, Bill Murray, Vince Vaughn, Tom Morello, and John Cusack: he is anti-Cubs celebrity. Without naming any specific people, Corgan discussed his stance in a new Chicago Tribune interview.
“I don’t talk to other Cubs celebrities,” Corgan, 49, said. “In fact, I’m anti-Cubs celebrity. Although I know a few Cubs celebrities, other Cubs celebrities tend to show up when the playoffs are around. I don’t necessarily see them in June. I might be a little biased being a Chicagoan year-round.”
“It’s a bit surreal,” he said about the Cubs making the World Series. “Having come to this ballpark for over 40 years you reach a point where you start to think, ‘is this ever going to happen?’” Corgan said.
“I just love the way the team plays. I think that’s part of what the vibe is, not just the chance we have to win a World Series but we’re looking at a team that is going to be great for years to come.”
Corgan’s cat Mr. Thom recently tweeted about the Cubs, “CUBS meow CUBS meow.”
