Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
For a guy who has written so many songs about angst, rage and heartbreak, Billy Corgan smiles an awful lot. And why not? He and his band Smashing Pumpkins are not only in the middle of a hugely popular cross-country tour, but he is also in the middle of a wildly ambitious project that will see him released dozens of free songs over the next few years under the overarching title Teargarden by Kaleidyscope (which has been warmly greeted and eagerly devoured by fans). He remains involved in his hometown as well, as he will be performing a benefit concert this Tuesday, July 27 at the Metro in Chicago, with the proceeds going to pay for medical care for Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone, who suffered severe brain trauma after trying to intervene in a fight between two people on the street last month. But on Tuesday night, the Pumpkins invaded Revolution in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for a killer set of new jams and stone cold classics.
Corgan wasn't the only star smiling, as Deborah Gibson (she of "Out of the Blue" and "Megashark Vs. Giant Octopus" fame) stopped by the Sirius-XM studio in New York to talk about upcoming projects and look incredibly hot, while Selena Gomez waved to fans on her way into the Ed Sullivan Theater for an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman." Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted" archive, which features over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers, Adam Lambert, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Madonna, Shakira and 50 Cent!
