Billy Corgan is pretty sure he saw a shapeshifter once

William Patrick Corgan, the adult man who no longer wants to be called Billy, is no stranger to run-ins with mysterious figures that defy all explanation. Last year, he appeared on Infowars and encountered the rage-filled, chili-devouring hell-beast known only as “Alex Jones,” and this week he visited the Howard Stern Show and revealed that he probably saw some kind of shapeshifter once. Unfortunately, if you have no idea what that means and would like some more information, Corgan wasn’t really willing to give any.


This comes from Spin, which reports that Corgan said he “was not [on drugs]” and “was totally sober,” and all he knows that he saw someone undergo a “transformation” that he can’t explain. “Imagine you’re doing something and suddenly you turn around and there’s somebody else standing there,” he said, adding that he’d “rather not go into details.” Stern asked if questioned the shapeshifter about why they transformed, and Corgan says he did and “they acknowledged it,” but they wouldn’t say anything about what they were doing.

Basically, Corgan saw a person turn into a totally different person, and when he confronted them about it, they admitted that it did happen but gave him a “don’t worry about it” when he asked why. It would be rude to suggest that he made any of this up, though, so the only possibility is that Corgan really did make contact with some kind of supernatural shapeshifter. That still leaves us in the dark as to what this shapeshifter wanted or why it risked altering it form right in front of Billy Corgan (of all people), but maybe it was preparing for some kind of secret invasion of alien shapeshifters. That could be fun.
