Jessica Simpson's men go head to head!
After John Mayer gave his now infamous interview to Playboy comparing ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson to "crack cocaine," most critics wrote it off as the mouthy singer being immature and hungry for attention. However, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan (who has also been tied to the busty blonde recently) has a different take on the situation, and he tells Rolling Stone he attributes John's colossal screw up to a failing career!
Billy tells the mag:
- â€œHeâ€™s trying to destroy his career. Rather than take a year off or change his musical directionâ€¦ some part of it is irritating his soul to the point where heâ€™s trying to blow it up. Certainly a talented guy, but empathetically, standing on the sidelines, itâ€™s hard to watch someone literally burn their career to the ground â€” speaking as somebody whoâ€™s done it.â€
On John spilling the dirty details of his sexual escapades with Jess, Billy said:
- â€œAs far as it pertains to her. I think for any person who has celebrity to sort of drop rocks at somebody elseâ€™s feet like that â€” thereâ€™s things you should really just keep your mouths shut on. Thereâ€™s things that should just be left alone.â€
