Alexa Ray Joel Condemns Perez Hilton On MySpace

by at . Comments

Until yesterday, we knew Alexa Ray Joel as the daughter of prolific musician Billy Joel, a terrific singer in her own right, and an all-around nice, grounded person.

The product of Joel's past marriage to Christie Brinkley, the 21-year-old served as maid of honor in Joel's recent marriage to former Top Chef host Katie Lee Joel.

Perez Hilton Getting Punched

Now she's serving Perez Hilton with a message:

Back off.

Alexa Ray Joel was thrust into the spotlight Sunday when she responded to a picture of her posted on the exponentially overrated, unfunny site,

Venting via her MySpace page, Alexa Ray called Perez Hilton "quite dangerous," and was sickened to see commenters "picking apart the appearance" of her "8 year-old sister."

Yesterday, Alexa Ray clarified her opinion for Us Weekly:

"To paraphrase my father, he always said: 'don't take crap from anybody.' I've had a lot of people advise me in this industry to get a thicker skin and turn a blind eye to the vicious trends of the tabloid publications and celebrity gossip sites, and their dangerous effects on young women, and society in general. But if I were to follow their advice, and do nothing, I feel I would only be perpetuating something which I believe to be fundamentally wrong. I stand by my original posting."

Interesting guidance. To paraphrase Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler, MySpace is the place to vent all of your frustrations about marriage, love, life, etc.

Alexa, who Perez called "no supermodel," came to the defense of herself and also her half-sister, Brinkley's daughter with her latest estranged ex, Peter Cook, who was criticized by commenters on the a-hole's posting.


Alexa you are starting to get there. Keep it up, however drop the song about Peter, how hurtful do you think that is to your sister and brother? Think about how they feel. Would you like that written when your mom and dad broke up? I can see you writing it for your benefit but you don't need to go out and make money off of it. It hurts your sister and brother.
No class in making money of of it.


Good for her. Has Perez looked in the mirror lately?? Not exactly a hunk. There is much more to life and being a good person than how you look. Sure maybe she "needs" a nose job to look better or someone else could have less of this or more of that but who cares? To judge a book by it's cover is ignorant and rude.


I think it's great that Alexa stood up to Perez Hilton. As for her talent, one word.....Amazing! I just happened upon her myspace today and was extremely pleasantly surprised. I have loved her dad for years, and now I am truly a fan of hers!


We've seen very little of this new singer - methinks it ultimately has to do with her "sound": she really has none. Her music sounds like she grew up playing and composing music, with no real drive to proclaim her own voice (e.g., a totally "supportive" environment - which was 'safe" - which ultimately works against "drive"). No style - and the fact that she left the NYU music program makes me suspect that they were probably telling her to push herself, and she didn't like that, and so she left and went out on her own when she clearly wasn't ready.


Not to be hurtful; but the girl needs a nose job. It would make her eyes so much more noticeable.
