Smashing Melons? Corgan rewinds to 1959

We don't know if Billy Corgan is thinking of joining Focus On The Family anytime soon, but judging by his remarks at Reading, he'd fit right in with anyone who shares their views:

Midway through the set stage cameras panned the crowd, which included a scantily clad young woman, about whom Corgan commented "There's something about a girl who's willing to take her top off so quickly."

"American girls are sluts too," he added. "See - isn't it great to be alternative - You can say all those things."

Erm... no, Corgan. Being "alternative" is not having those sort of views. Seeing women as sluts is more of a mainstream attitude. But even in the mainstream, blurting out that sort of shit is frowned upon these days.
