Romance for Billy Corgan & Jessica Simpson?

Jessica Simpson has been known for high-profile romances dating back to her MTV-televised marriage to Nick Lachey. Since her divorce, Simpson's love life continued to be a public matter, with just about everyone knowing everything about her relationships with follow-up boyfriends John Mayer and Tony Romo. But for the past four months, it seems the starlet has been spending lots of down-low time with Smashing Pumpkins' lead singer Billy Corgan. And, except for a few Tweets here and there about their musical collaborations, the buzz on these two has been dim. So what's really going on?

Well, Corgan spoke the Chicago Tribune about the dynamic between him and Simpson, and downplayed any inklings of a romance. He explained that their recent time together has been all for Simpson's new show The Price of Beauty.

“She asked me to help her out on the theme song for her new TV show,” Corgan said. “[The show] has an interesting concept. 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 interesting."

As for the rumors that there is something more going on between him and the 29-year-old, Corgan, 42, said, "The stuff that I’ve seen doesn’t have any bearing to the reality that I’m in. It’s like being in a cartoon. It has nothing to do with what’s really going on or how I feel."

Hmmmm.... we'll keep an eye on these two.

Simpson's The Price of Beauty debuts on VH1 on March 15.
