Alexa Ray Joel is seriously annoying me lately. Every time she talks to the press she contradicts herself. First, she responded to the coverage of her alleged suicide attempt by saying that she was suffering from “heartbreak related depression,” and she wanted to be a spokesperson to help others. Initially I thought, what on earth is “heartbreak related depression?” Perhaps you are just depressed in general and the break-up is the scape goat. After all, her father, Billy Joel, admittedly tried to kill himself in 1970 and was subsequently treated for depression. But then I thought – okay! If she wants to help others, I’ll drop it. She then went and got a nose job which was clearly a betrayal of our big-nose-girls club. But I backtracked again, reasoning that if she needs this to feel prettier then fine. I’ll drop it. Now she’s saying she never even tried to kill herself in the first place?! I realize she has it rough, because she’s either compared to her mother for her looks or compared to her father for his music, but here’s my advice: get your story straight before you start doing interviews. The public will embrace you if you’re honest and consistent.
Alexa Ray Joel almost had me convinced that she didn’t mind the criticism about her looks. She once said, “I like that I look unique, or more “exotic” – I don’t want to look like everybody else, and I also don’t want to look like a supermodel–I just want to look like ME!” Well, I’m officially a sucker. Joel underwent a nose job, stating that she was self-conscious when pictures of her were taken from the side. I really thought that Joel was representing us beautiful, big nosed half-jews (okay I’m a full jew but you get the point). I guess it got to her – and I’m sad. Must everyone look the same? For goodness sakes – Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue look like identical twins with those button noses!
