Alexa Ray Joel collapsed onstage during her Saturday concert at Cafe Carlyle in NYC and was rushed to the emergency room, but she will be alright.

Billy Joel and ex-wife Christie Brinkley's only daughter, 28, was diagnosed with vasovagal syncope, one of the most common causes of fainting.

"She didn't feel well all day and got sick," a source close to the singer says.

"But she wanted the show to go on. She psyched herself up to do it and then got sick onstage. It's fine. She didn't want to cancel. She's 100 percent fine."

Alexa Ray says, "I was excited and determined to fulfill my final performance, and I really wanted to end my run with a bang, but this was not what I had in mind."

"And hope I have the opportunity to make it up to the wonderful audience very soon. Thanks for all the concern," said the talented singer-songwriter.

After photos showing Alexa Ray Joel's stunning transformation hit the Internet, the singer-songwriter took to the web herself to address the rumors.

According to her, the alleged Alexa Ray Joel plastic surgery photos are nothing of the site. Chalk it up to makeup, a good bra ... and aging 15 YEARS.

The 28-year-old daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley actually posted a comment on Us in which she took bullies to task for their cruel remarks.

"This is absolutely hysterical!!! I was 13 years old in the pic posted as a 'before.' In this latter pic, I am 28 years old [that's the age I am now]," she wrote.

"I have lost weight simply from maturing, and I have fully contoured 'stage makeup' and hair done for my first debut show at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC."

"Obviously I'm going to look different. It's called 'growing up'! I have only gotten one nose-job done. That is the absolute extent of the surgeries I have had."

As the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel may never have to worry about money, but apparently the 28-year-old singer/songwriter was very concerned about her appearance. 

It's hard to believe, but that's Alexa on the right and the left.

  • Alexa Ray Joel: After Plastic Surgery
  • Alexa Ray Joel: Before Plastic Surgery

Must have been all those years of the world unflatteringly comparing Alexa to her model mother that drove her to so dramatically alter her looks. 

Alexa's transformation is one of the most surprising since the Heidi Montag plastic surgery bonanza that involved her undergoing a shocking 10 procedures in one day.

As with Heidi, reviews of Alexa's new looks have been decidedly mixed.

Across the Internet, most seem to agree that Alexa is more traditionally pretty post-operation, but many also feel her appearance has lost some of its quirky charm.

At The Hollywood Gossip, we've pitted sister against sister and friend against friend.

We've asked you to judge one sex tape star (hi, Myla Sinanaj!) against another (greetings, Kim Kardashian!) and we've set fan bases against each other by daring to compare Twilight Saga studs with Hunger Games hotties.

But we've never paired a daughter against her very own mother before... until now!

Feast your eyes on 27-year old Alexa Ray Joel and her 59-year old mother, Christie Brinkley, in the following Instagram image, as the lovely ladies are clearly not shy about publicizing their bikini bodies - and for good, hot reason!

The Hamptons vacation looks like it was fun for this family, but it may be challenging for readers, as we ask:

Alexa Ray Joel or Christie Brinkley: To whom would you rather give it?

Alexa Ray Joel is bouncing back beautifully after her brief hospital stay this weekend, thanks to the help of her parents Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley.

The 23-year-old called 911 Saturday after an apparent drug overdose in which she took eight Traumeel pills, a medication, and had trouble breathing.

"She has the most attentive parents," says a family friend of Alexa Ray.

"She is very close to Billy, and Alexa and her mom are really best friends."

"They're focused on making sure she is going to be alright."

Alexa Ray Joel was said to be distraught over a boyfriend.

"[Christie Brinkley] rushed to her daughter's side," says a friend. "She was worried sick, showered her with affection and told she would support her always."

Since the incident, triggered by her rocky relationship with ex-boyfriend Jimmy Riot, Christine and Billy have made sure their only child knows people care.

"Alexa is the sweetest girl. She is one of the dearest souls on Earth," says the friend. "She's an artist and like all artists, she's always very passionate."

"Growing up is hard enough, but under a microscope it's unbelievably difficult ... she will recover from this and be horrified it became such a spectacle."

In the aftermath of Alexa Ray Joel's drug overdose and hospitalization Saturday, sources say that the singer may have been upset over a boyfriend.

According to a source, she took Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, and "She became worried about breathing, which is why 911 was called."

It has been rumored that Alexa's overdose was a suicide attempt, but that has not been confirmed. An accidental overdose is still a possibility.

Adds another source close to the situation who was quoted by People: "She was apparently distraught over an argument with her boyfriend."

The singer has been released from the hospital and her father Billy Joel is now with her. Emotional highs and lows are not new to the singer.

Fortunately, Alexa Ray Joel is alright.

She recently posted on MySpace: "Is anybody else finding it a difficult "dating world" out there? I'm so terrible at dating – I don't know if I'll ever get used to it!"

"And I HATE the game-playing! I live in the greatest city in the world and I can't seem to meet an interesting guy who also happens to be NICE. Go figure... "

Alexa Ray Joel even admitted last year that, like her father, "I can get very dark. I can get very in my own head and depressed as many other artists can."

Her mom is Billy's ex-wife, Christie Brinkley. Hopefully she gets the help she needs, regardless of what happened Saturday, so it doesn't happen again.

Billy Joel's 23-year-old daughter with Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, is in stable condition after being transported to a New York hospital just a few hours ago.

According to sources close to the situation, authorities arrived to Alexa's Manhattan apartment after a 911 call alerted them to Alexa having trouble breathing.

A female caller told a dispatcher she had "taken pills" and "wanted to die." Paramedics found her having difficulty breathing, but got her medical attention.

A source with knowledge of the situation says: “There was an indication the call came from Alexa’s roommate, but it could've been Alexa Ray Joel herself."

The singer is "conscious" and expected to recover.

Investigators at the NYPD’s Sixth Precient say a drug overdose or even an attempted suicide have not been ruled out, but there is nothing confirmed as of yet.

Rumors suggest she may have been struggling with her parents' respective divorces over the past year and a half as well as other personal problems.

Here's wishing Alexa a speedy recovery.

The stars came out to see Long Island native Billy Joel perform at Hampton (Social) @ Ross Saturday night. On hand were two of his favorite ladies: ex-wife Christie Brinkley, with whom he remains on good terms, and their daughter, singer Alexa Ray Joel. See below:

We would never have guessed that Billy Joel's daughter would be a certifed cutie, but her mom is a supermodel, after all. We heart Alexa Ray Joel. Not just because she's pretty, either - it's nice to see a famous family that's not entirely dysfunctional!

The entire five-show summer concert series, in which mega-artists perform at the Hamptons' Ross School for small, intimate crowds, opened with Prince and closes with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Tickets for the Billy Joel concert started in the thousands.

Also in attendance were talk show goddess Kelly Ripa and her hubby, Mark Consuelos, Mary-Kate Olsen and troubled 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, among others.

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, PerezHilton.com.

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.

Billy Joel has done alright for himself. Multiple car accidents and drinking problems aside, this is a well-known, acclaimed, rich singer.

One that has been married to Christie Brinkley.

Meanwhile, Joel has also fathered a young, hopeful singer: Alexa Ray Joel. There's just one problem:

Some people mix up this 20-year daughter with her 25-year old step mother. Indeed, Katie Lee Joel - host of Top Chef - tied the knot with Billy a couple years ago and won't exactly get confused with Anna Nicole Smith, either.

It would be awfully embarassing if Billy ever got his two girls mixed up. But do you know which young hottie is which?
