Disneyland is known as the Happiest Place on Earth, and that just might be true unless you are an alternative rock icon whose world is well documented to being a vampire. Yes, Billy Corgan (who wants to be called William now, but like how I’ll never call Jimmy Carter “James,” Corgan will always be “Billy”) was photographed on what looks like a totally fun ride in the theme park were dreams come alive with a look on his face that feels like he’s about to burst into tears at any moment.
The photo was posted by Us Weekly, with this pun-filled description:
“From a rat in a cage to the House of Mouse! Smashing Pumpkins rocker Billy Corgan took his Mellon Collie self to the Happiest Place on Earth, aka Disneyland, where he traveled back in time to the Wild, Wild West of the 19th century.”
To be fair, it does look like Corgan was not sure just what they had in store, almost as if he didn’t even care to shake those theme park blues. And other “1979” references. Whatever, it’s Friday.
