Billy Corgan’s Suicidal Thoughts

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Alternative, Rock,

Billy CorganSmashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan "almost killed" himself "three or four" times.

The musician has been overcome with dark thoughts on a number of occasions and even started planning his death, but his faith in God always pulled him through:

"I almost killed myself about three, four, seven times. I literally started planning my death and what I would leave behind, and what I was gonna write. Three or four times in my life. What I finally realized, at least on the back end of this, is that God, at least as I understand God, was there all along. Once I was able to process my reality in that way, I no longer felt like a victim."

Billy, 45, has previously told how one of his worst suicidal phases came when he was recording the band's breakthrough album, Siamese Dream, in 1993, on which he famously played almost all of the instruments:

George Clooney Considered Suicide

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Meltdowns,

George Clooney promoting 'Syriana'George Clooney considered killing himself six years ago. The Ides of March actor injured himself while filming spy thriller Syriana in 2005, and he was so racked with pain as a result of the spinal condition that he thought about ending his life.

"I started to think, 'I may have to do something drastic about this.' I was in a hospital bed unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you're having a stroke. You don't want to leave a mess, so go in the garage, go in the car, start the engine. I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how to survive."

The 50-year-old actor - who is dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler - also spoke about losing his virginity "too young" at the age of 16, and admitted he thinks he had his first orgasm when he was "six or seven" years old: "I was young, very young, too young. I believe it [my first orgasm] was while climbing a rope when I was six or seven years old. I mean, nothing came out, but all the other elements were there. I remember getting to the top of the rope, hanging off the rope, and going, 'Oh, my God, this feels great!'"

Jonathan Rhys MeyersActor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized after a suspected suicide attempt on Tuesday.

The Tudors star - who has been in rehab five times for alcohol problems - refused treatment by paramedics for more than 30 minutes, meaning they were forced to call police and he was eventually taken away by ambulance to a facility near his home in Maida Vale, north London.

"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life," a source said.

Worried neighbors saw the 33-year-old actor - who was believed to have overdosed on unspecified pills - rushed to hospital. "I saw the ambulance arriving and was worried to death. Jonathan is a lovely guy. You see him all the time in the street. He says hello and is very pleasant. I hope he is fine," one onlooker said.

Korean gamer murders mother, commits suicide after playing ‘Internet games’

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Video Games,

As if video games didn't get a bad enough rep, now prepare to add more fuel to that fire as a 15 year old from Seoul, South Korea strangled his own mother to death on Monday after she scolded him for playing online computer games. After the strangling, the boy then hung himself. The murder suicide took place in the southeastern port city of Busan. 

The regularity of their fights and the extent of them up until this point is unknown, as is the video game the teen was playing. Though, his younger sister claims that he had been involved in playing "violent" video games for the past two to three years. 

Whether or not video games actually played a part in this horrible act of violence is up in the air. However, South Korea is among the world's most technologically wired, seeing 90 percent of homes having broadband internet access. Furthermore, South Korea estimates that the country has around 2 million people that are Internet addicts. 

Regardless the reason, this serves as a sorrowful reminder of the cruelty of humanity, and our heart goes out to those affected.
