Sucks for you Billy Corgan

Jessica Simpson leaving Dane Cook’s show at the Laugh Factory (2/16) presents: Two stories that aren’t in the least bit funny . . . until placed back-to-back with each other:

From Rolling Stone:

[Billy Corgan] on “Loving” Jessica Simpson:

“If I go, ‘Oh, we’re just friends,’ then it’s like, ‘Did they go out, did he dump her or she dump him, what happened?’ It has nothing to do with any of that. Sometimes people just like being around each other, and good things come out of that. My goal in life is to love whoever I think is worth loving, and I think if people knew her like I knew her, they would love her like I do. It’s really simple.”

From People:

Was there a love connection? Jessica Simpson, chatting with The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner during a cocktail party for his movie at the L.A. home of Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary. Simpson, who lives next door, arrived with hairdresser Ken Paves. But she spent most of her time with the Oscar nominee. “Jeremy spent the night hitting on Jessica like crazy,” the source says. “They were really flirting up a storm.” Paves encouraged the two and, the source says, “Jessica loved it!” When the party was over, the two exchanged numbers, entering them into their phones.

Sucks for Billy that Jessica’s most likely cheating on him, but let’s face it, picking up Jessica Simpson ain’t exactly rocket science these days. “Yeah I know the manager of the Snickers factory. I can probably get you a tour . . .”
