The U.K. cover of Smashing Pumpkins' comeback single TARANTULA features a photograph of Paris Hilton, taken by the band's leader Billy Corgan.
The rocker reveals he initially planned to invite Hilton and former party pals Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan to pose for the cover shot - but he feared such a session would be a nightmare.
Corgan says, "We decided that that was probably gonna be too prohibitive 'cause then you would get into, like, those girls fighting amongst each other.
"Paris, I knew personally, and I hung out with her a few times, and so I asked her. I said, `Would you be willing to do this?' And, God bless her, she came, she showed up at 10 am on a Sunday morning, sat in the chair, got made up and we shot her."
