Smashing Pumpkins Member Opens Up About Reuniting With Siamese Dream Girls


Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin appeared to open up about seeing the Siamese Dream cover girls 25 years later in a new Instagram post, unless he’s possibly referring to working with Billy Corgan and James Iha again.

“It’s good to see old friends again. Especially when they’ve come so far and have so much to talk about.”

Ali Laenger, one of the Siamese Dream girls, posted an old photo on Instagram right around the time of the photoshoot, “Daddy look what I can do. @namaste2u626 😂 #1993.”

Laenger was photographed with Billy Corgan in the 2000’s, and talked to TMZ in 2011 when Billy Corgan trolled the media by saying then Smashing Pumpkins bassist Nicole Fiorentino was one of the Siamese Dream cover girls.

TMZ reported in 2011, “An all growed up Ali Laenger tells TMZ there’s no way the bassist — Nicole Fiorentino — is the girl who posed for the ’93 “Siamese Dream” album shot because:

— Nicole’s age doesn’t match. Doing the math, Nicole would have been about 14 when the pic was shot … the girl on the album is clearly around 7.

— Ali says the photo was shot specifically for the album, and not a candid pic as Nicole has claimed.

Corgan tweeted Nicole’s tale a few days back, but he’s either joking with fans … or Nicole pulled one over on him.”

    That girl has a really large penis.

    Sorry, my mistake. That’s just Corgan.

    • Hwang Sunghyeop

      Did you see that????

      • Corndog

        Oh hey Hwang! How’s it going? Haven’t seen you around for a while. Hope all is good with you!

        • Hwang Sunghyeop

          Hi Corndog it’s happy to see you here. It was so great to write comments to you. Lived in different country but we talk about PJ. recently I bought both Backspacer and Avocado albums on ebay. those are so good.

          • Corndog

            I love both those albums! I saw Avocado as a real return to form after the very disappointing Binaural and the slightly better Riot Act. Some great songs on both of them.

            What did you think of Lightning Bolt? I really enjoyed that one too, although i think it could have benefited from changing the track listing around a little so that it doesn’t fizzle out so much towards the end. The last few songs are just too similar. They should have spread those around the album a bit more. We should cherish it though, as it’s looking more and more like it could be the last album we get from them any time soon. 5 years and waiting now. I know that Jeff has said that they are writing a new album, but they really don’t seem to be that interested in PJ at the minute so i’ll believe it when i see it. Fingers crossed though!

            I like every PJ’s albums. LB was wonderful moment for me and them maybe. Now I think some songs are not their style but it was good for me. songs like Getaway and Silence are example.

          • Corndog

            My favorite song from LB was Infallible. Best Eddie has sounded for years!

            Into the wild. I really like it. and Vs. is my first PJ album. I really like Leash. I listen to that song more than 2000 times. My High school year in 2000 was Seattle year.
