Corgan co-writes new Jessica Simpson TV theme song 9:43 am // Friday, February 26, 2010

Posted 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.

Below: It does sound a bit Corganesque to me (YouTube)

2nd. the comments section didn’t stand out

if the song at the start of this video is the theme song. i honestly feel like it just sounds pretty generic.

Welcome back! Guess I’ll tune in for an episode or so. Can’t wait for the next podcast; hopefully after the next song is released!

PS. Is it possible to have it so whenever a link is clicked on your website that it would open in another tab, such as it does with Twitter. It’s always bugged me, but merely a suggestion. :)

Cm’on billy, really?

@purple pumpkin — good suggestion. thanks! we’ll see what we can do. plenty of fish to fry with this new platform.

i’d rather hear this than widow wake my mind

8. Floppy Nono - 11:50 am // Friday, February 26, 2010

it made me think a little bit of the songs he did with Marianne Faithful

@FN i guess you like generic pop music.

if we are handing out suggestions. here i go.

the (Come On) Lets Go! & Blog Roll links on the right would be easier to read if they were either larger. or if you just made the black.

the comment link wasn’t too easy to spot right off the bat. so if you want more conversation maybe make it a little bigger or change its color to be pink to go with the TGBK theme you seem to have going on.

The WordPress fav.ico should be replaced.

The missing images above Come On Lets Go! links of course need to be fixed.

And maybe a new border color. the gray is a little cold.

As far as praise.
thank heaven the site back up.
do like the new comment feed although fear the spam possibility.
the new logo is good (now lets update that Twitter one)
I like the HU twitter feed in the top right. very nice!

LOL Netphoria spam. We covered this news on February 20 by posting links to Twitter and to Facebook while the blog was down. This post is just for the record.

I love Jessica Simpson. She looks hot wearing hot dresses. I’m all for curvy. I wish I have her body too.
