Billy Corgan has commented on his relationship with Jessica Simpson for the first time ... and it appears as if that relationship is mostly, if not entirely musical.
"She asked me to help her out on the theme song for her new show [VH1's The Price of Beauty],” the Smashing Pumpkins frontman told the Chicago Tribune.
"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 very interesting."
Corgan says that he ended up writing part of the theme song, which he describes as having "a little bit of an alternative rock edge, but it’s still very pop-y."
The odd couple had fans scratching their heads last December after they were first spotted together in New York City. Rumors of a romance soon heated up.

From what we've read and heard, there were feelings from both sides, although the extent to which Billy Corgan and Jessica Simpson were romantic is unclear.
And as far as celebrity gossip reports are concerned, he could not care less. "The stuff I’ve seen doesn’t have any bearing to the reality that I'm in," he says.
"It's like living a cartoon. It has nothing to do with what’s really going on."
A bit coy, but definitely honest. Which is about what you would expect.
Jessica Simpson aside, what's left for a '90s rock god to do in his career?
“I just signed a deal to write my memoir,” he said. “Next year. It’s a memoir about life from a spiritual perspective – not from a media or celeb perspective.”
