One Nose Job Is Enough Plastic Surgery For Alexa Ray Joel

Alexa Ray Joel is turning over a new leaf. Hospitalized after taking Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, in December, Alexa Ray tells PEOPLE she’s feeling much better–inside and out. The 24-year-old singer underwent rhinoplasty earlier this month, and says she’s overjoyed by the results. “I was thinking about getting this for years,” says Joel. Her nose, she adds, “always bothered me a little bit. I was self-conscious of pictures taken from the side. To some people that’s vain, but at the end of the day, we all want to feel pretty.” But the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley says she’s done with plastic surgery. Says Joel, “Would I do anything else to my body? No. It’s not ten procedures like Heidi Montag. For me, that’s a little extreme, but to each her own.” As for the timing of the surgery–just four months after her overdose scare following a breakup–Joel says this was the right time for her. “Would it have been smart to get this procedure last year?” she asks. “No. I didn’t know who I was.” And now? “I feel really good.”–Rennie Dyball and Liza Hamm

I saw her in person once, she is a beautiful girl

She is another example of people of means/hollywood/media who base their whole self worth on “appearance”. There was nothing wrong with how she looked. She had classic Italian features and was quite pretty. But, because she is bereft of any spirituality, she thinks a “nose job” will cure her ills.

She is in for a rude awakening. All it will take is for one more “boyfriend” to tell her that he boobs are two small and that is “odd” because your mom is Christie Brinkley and she is STACKED!!

People don’t turn to their spiritual and/or religious selves these days. They listen to “folks”/people, doctors and miracles in a jar to give them validation. So, so sad…

Hopefully she didn’t get her mom’s personality which is like a wet towel.I hear she can sing great.She has the best hair/makeup people and stylists to make her look good.If a person is thin and well dressed people can also view them as “beautiful”.

Poor girl is always going to be compared to her mother. If she was anyone else’s daughter everyone would talk about how beautiful she is.

So maybe she should have surgery now, to move her eyes closer together? Please, give me a break. She’s beautiful in her own way.

Alexis is a classic beauty. Quit hating!

It couldn’t/can’t be easy being the daughter of a great beauty as Brinkley. If this helps her feel better about herself, then I say good for her.
