In a seemingly shocking outburst, Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan labelled all American girls as sluts during the bandâ€™s headline Reading performance.
The bald singer made the comments when stage cameras turned their attention on the audience, showing a barely dressed woman in the crowd.
With his tongue in his cheek, Corgan said: â€œThereâ€™s something about a girl willing to take her clothes off so quickly. American girls are sluts too.â€
As the NME quotes, he finished: â€œSee isnâ€™t it great to be alternative? You can say all these things.â€
The Pumpkins wowed the crowd with a 90 minute set on Sunday evening, which included the classics â€˜1979â€™ and â€˜Tonight, Tonight.â€™
