Think you know Billy Corgan? Think again. He and his partner, designer at Maison Atia – Chloe Mendel, talk faux fur, animal activism and the Smashing Pumpkins reunion on Ep 22 of Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano.
EXCLUSIVE! This is the first ever interview of Billy Corgan and his partner of seven years, Chloe Mendel.
Unfathomably, between the two of them, they juggle living in NYC, Chicago and LA, an haute-couture fashion house, a rock band, two dogs, two cats and two babies! However, they do an incredible amount of animal activism. In addition, as Billy says, his most important working has been saving animals, following the birth of his children. I love him for this.
Despite their crazy schedules, they are incredibly normal and laid back, with a very funny dynamic between the two of them. I had a wonderful time interviewing them together.
