Corgan co-writes new Jessica Simpson TV theme song 9:43 am // Friday, February 26, 2010Posted by jjb in billy corgan, interview, jessica simpson, news, television, video.
Before playing out on February 18 with Matt Walker, Billy Corgan ‘did some media’ including a brief chat with Chicago Tribune nightlife writer Luis Arroyave, who asked Corgan about his recent studio work with Jessica Simpson:
“She asked me to help her out on the theme song for her new TV show,” Corgan said. “[The show] has an interesting concept. She goes around the world to show how different people perceive beauty. In some cultures, bigger is better. In some, smaller is better. It’s interesting.”
“I ended up writing part of [the theme song]. It has a little bit of an alternative rock edge, but it’s still very pop-y.”
Simpson’s program, “The Price of Beauty,” will air Mondays at 10pm ET on VH1, debuting March 15. A promotional video clip appeared Wednesday on VH1.com, and fan-operated Twitter account @PoBNews suggests that the music heard at the start of the clip is from the theme song in question.
