Billy Corgan helps porn star Sasha Gray celebrate her 21st birthday earlier this month.

A Corganphile much more dedicated to following his writings on the Web than I found and sent me the following curious post that the Great Pumpkin wrote a few weeks back, apologizing for…

Well, exactly why he is sorry isn’t really clear. Could it be that he knew the split with Jimmy Chamberlin was looming? Was it his support of the Ticketmaster/Live Nation merger? His rants during the shows on the last tour? His selling his songs to TV commercials? Any or all of the above?

I’m not sure, but it’s interesting reading. Here it is in its entirety.

February 26, 2009 11:55pm Since it’s a new year, let’s try something new… Let’s try to forgive each other, support each other, be kind in our words and deeds, and get out of judging each other… The world around us right now is very complicated… I for one am very confused by much of the information I come across… I am concerned about so many losing their jobs, homes, and peaceful lives under an increasingly curious set of circumstances…there are however new opportunities to be had, even in the worst of times…we are all affected by the changes that are going on on a global scale…the politics of egoism and cultural divides mean very little if you can’t support your family, or help those in need, even if you want to help…it is a test for us now to find how to heal each other…i believe very strongly in the power of prayer to affect change and welcome in forgiveness… I don’t mind asking publicly for your forgiveness…if I have offended you somewhere along the way, out of my own ignorance or fear, please forgive me…it would be part of my own healing to be forgiven… I can honestly say that if I have ever wanted to do anything in this life it has been to heal others thru my work…i have failed many times to shine some light in this world, but I can still try and try again… B
