Billy Corgan has praised Halsey and Lady Gaga for creating a new musical world that he dreamed of.
“I think the good news is that we’re now in, or we’ve entered into, the musical world that I dreamed of. Which is that you hear pop artists like Halsey doing almost alternative tracks. You see Gaga doing a country album,” the Smashing Pumpkins‘ frontman told Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe.
In his opinion, “artists really should explore the space, and if they’re gifted enough, they should be able to pull it off. If they’re not, that’s okay too.”
With the presidential election on November 3 in mind, Cogan said, “We have a tremendous opportunity now to come together and sort of build the perfect world, the perfect music world, the perfect artistic world, the perfect world for everybody to achieve their dream.”
“Or we can carry on and repeat those history books that I’ve read too where it ends up with weird, weird stuff happening,” the 53-year-old singer added.
