It’s Been Two Days And I Can’t Stop Singing “We Didn’t Start The Fire”

Can't Stop, Won't Stop

If you are living under a rock and ┬áhave a hole in your heart the size of a fictional Indiana town (Eagleton, for example), then you probably missed one of the greatest scenes in television history a few nights ago: Amy Poehler scream-yelling Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” complete with fabricated lyrics.

Lindsay Lohan’s New Billy Joel Tattoo Proclaims She Is In “The Prime Of My Life”

Lindsay Lohan decided to get some new ink this week. And so she headed over to Shamrock Tattoos and had them tattoo a quote from Billy Joel’s “I Go To Extremes” on her side, in almost exactly the same place LeAnn Rimes tried out a tattoo of Eddie Cibrian’s wedding vows. So what does Lindsay’s new tatt say? “”Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife I feel like I’m in the prime of my life.” Well, that’s one way to think about it. This is of course in addition to the tattoo she got last year of a quote from Marilyn Monroe, “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” Meanwhile, Megan Fox wants her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed. These celebs are so confusing. [TMZ, People] Keep reading »

Alexa Ray Joel, Evangelist For “Heartbreak-Related Depression”

When songstress Alexa Ray Joel landed in the hospital after trying to OD on a handful of homeopathic pain pills in her NYC apartment, our hearts went out to her. Joel, 24, was apparently distraught over her breakup with band mate Jimmy Riot, 38, and swallowed the pills in a “cry for attention.” And no matter how famous your parents are—in Alexa’s case, Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley—breakups always make you feel like s**t. The good news is Joel is finding positive ways to work through her issues: She’s writing songs and she told New York Daily News she is at work on a project to teach “young girls with something I feel I know a great deal about: heartbreak-related depression.” Wait—what? Don’t nearly all breakups cause “heartbreak-related depression,” especially if you’re on the being-dumped side of things? Keep reading »

The Financial Acumen Of Trophy Wives

Trophy wives: there are few things to say about their morals, but their financial acumen is unimpeachable, says Daily Beast blogger (and former NY Daily News gossip columnist) Johanna Piazza.

Piazza figures that women like Katie Lee Joel, Anna Nicole Smith, Marla Maples and Heather Mills are only wives to men decades their senior for a few years. They’re stinkin’ rich divorceés, however, for the rest of their lives. A younger woman who shacks up with an old fart will suffer “bimbo” or “whore” name-calling left and right, but she’s actually quite savvy for parlaying a short-term investment as a Mrs. into long-term benefits as an Ex. (Courtesy of a generous pre-nup, that is.)

That’s quite a theory. But her point still doesn’t make me think Katie Lee and Billy are any less obnoxious. What do you guys think? [Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Marrying A Much Older Man Made Me A Better Person

Billy Joel and his wife of nearly five years Katie Lee are splitting up. A “friend” of the couple told the New York Daily News that the age difference of 33 years drove the couple apart. I doubt it. Maybe, like so many couples that end up divorced, they just weren’t meant to be. You never hear anyone say “Dick and Jane are the same age—that must have had something to do with their breakup.” I call BS on blaming the age difference when it comes to divorce. Though, admittedly, I’m biased. Older men and younger women? Keep reading »
