Alexa Ray Joel Is Proud She Looks Like Dad

Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel’s daughter responded to Perez Hilton’s story about her looks in a posting at her MySpace (@alexarayjoel) on Sunday (April 29). She writes:

I know it’s ridiculous, and I should have a thicker skin by now and just plain NOT CARE, but I can’t help but be a little bummed out because the incredibly cruel, bullying Perez Hilton (this tabloid guy who calls himself the ‘queen of media’) just put up a horrible picture of me on his site and basically in so many words called me ugly, or rather, wrote that I’m ‘not that bad, actually, I’m just no supermodel’. I just feel like saying: ‘YES, my mom and I look completely different, and I’m OK with that. 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!’ (sorry if this sounds like a repeat of my last blog, but I just have to VENT).

Oh well, I guess that’s a part of the crap that comes with the industry – those sites LOVE putting bad pictures up, and everybody has a few unflattering shots – especially on the red-carpet! I’m still not comfortable posing on it, and (who knows?) maybe I never will be, but I’m just so OVER being compared to my mom looks-wise! I’m happy to have a lot of my father’s features (especially his eyes and lips) – I think he’s very handsome, and I’m quite sick of hearing people call HIM ugly – I think he has a very soulful face – the face of someone with character and integrity – who has LIVED, and has something important to say.

    She really is homely. I am sure she is proud that she will inherit her Dad’s money—the looks I’m sure she wishes she did not inherit!!!!

    Who the F@#@# is Perez Hilton? A talentless F** who makes his living dissing Hollywood’s flavor of the moment. He’s a bottom feeder. Every Hollywood starlet thinks looking like a pencil with fish lips is somehow “beautiful”. Every major star has had work:
    Botox & Restalyne injections, nose jobs, boob jobs, ass jobs. This “norm” of behavior has spread to the rest of society who think that altering ones’ physical appearance is going to change one’s inner emptiness.
    I applaud Alexa and see her has a beautiful woman of substance. A rare breed in a nation of celebrity-driven narcissist!!

    Hey Paris, read this: At least Alexa doesn’t have any published slut films she’s famous for. How did you get famous again? I don’t believe anyone knows that one. You wouldn’t make a pimple on Alexa’s butt. Grow up you dumb blond.

  7. Susan says:

    Actually, Suzie, they said in the article it was Perez Hilton who made that comment, not Paris Hilton. Perez is a gay guy who comments on celebrities.

  8. Bethany says:

    Tell Perez to look into a mirror if he wants a dictionary version of homely.

    tell Perez Hilton to go stuff himself, Alexa is a very beautiful girl, she does look like her dad, but whats wrong with looking like the cutest guy on the planet.she has his dark skin , his deep dark soulful brown eyes,and his great smile. Besides Alexa, is not only beautiful on the outside, is she beautiful on the inside as well. most celebrity children are spoiled brats, who never do anything with their lives. But Alexa was raised right, and taught to be independent. I love Alexa I thing she is a great person, besides who is Perez Hilton to call someone ugly, he’s not exactly a Calvin Kline model himself.
