Former SMASHING PUMPKINS star Billy Corgan is refusing to vote in the upcoming US presidential elections, even though his admission is upsetting fans.

The singer/songwriter admits he can't get passionate about any of the politicians running for the White House, so he has decided not to vote on Tuesday (02NOV04).

He says, "I won't vote. This angers my fans but I just think the process is so flawed.

"I'm very political. I look at these guys get so manipulated on the way up and how the media pretends that it's all a game. It's our lives we're talking about here.

"Come on, there's some real stuff to talk about."
