The world is a vampire / sent to drain. Billy Corgan still lives by those iconic “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” lyrics after the Internet mocked and teased him about a recent photo. Earlier in July, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman was snapped looking pretty miserable on a ride at Disneyland.

And since celebrities looking sad is an instant hit online, it quickly went viral. Later, at a fan Q&A, Billy discussed his visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, explaining why he looked so melancholy: “I was taking pictures with people…but then it gets into your head. Like, you’re not smiling enough, or you don’t seem to be enjoying it – and I’m like, what the f*** do you want from me?”

Billy didn’t specifically explain the photo taken of him on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad but, to his credit, he was off-the-clock: “I’m at f****** Disneyland. I just want to hang out at Disneyland. I’m not here to do a meet and greet…”

Annoying fans might put him in a sour mood, but you know what cheers up Billy Corgan? Cats.
