After a recent performance sparked rumors that Alexa Ray Joel has once again gone under the knife, Alexa is fighting back, saying that since the nose job she admitted to, she has not had any further surgery.
28-year old Alexa Ray Joel is an aspiring musician, following in her father, Billy Joel’s, footsteps. She recently looked very grown up and glamorous at her recent concert, during which she collapsed onstage, igniting rumors of plastic surgery.
Still, Alexa insists that other than the rhinoplasty she had back in 2010, she completely natural, even to the roots of her hair.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Alexa said she “hasn’t had anything else done” and that sightings of her at a surgeon’s office were the result of shoddy reporting.
“It was interesting because they were comparing pictures of me from when I was 16 to 18, to recent pictures of me now and I’m 28 years old,” she explained. “So of course I look different.”
After Alexa’s glammed up appearance for her concert at the Carlyle Hotel, rumors began flying that in addition to Alexa’s original nose job, she was thought to have returned to plastic surgery for a much more drastic dose of plastic surgery, including an upper eye lift fillers like Restylane or Juverderm in her cheeks and lips and even possible cheek implants. She had also been subject to rumors of a breast augmentation, which she and her mother, Christie Brinkley, adamantly denied.
When the rumors initially began swirling, Alexa fought them off via social media, saying that the drastic change in her appearance was due to a drastic makeup makeover.
“I would just like to add that all of the continuously-circulating rumors that I have had extensive ‘face-work’ and undergone breast-augmentation surgery is simply and entirely 100% false. The only thing I have ever had done is my nose, which I have always been completely candid, honest, and open about- and I can swear on my Beloved Gypsy-Stella The Cat that this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God! (But hey, there could be worse rumors circulating, so, I’ll take it). Any visibly-positive alterations in terms of my public-image are an absolute and sole credit to my brilliant makeup-artist and stylist, @darlingcait … Who is a true beauty-wizard and visionary. (That, combined with the fact that I actually have a hearty dose of self-confidence now- which took me a little extra minute or so to find.) ; ) But hey, wouldn’t it be nice if the press could just focus on my music and stage-presence? Because, honestly, I would rather be judged, critiqued, and picked apart for my actual work.”
So if she didn’t faint because of going onstage too soon after her “operations,” what led to her onstage collapse? Alexa says working too hard.
“I had been working a few weeks straight, and I was tired. And it just happened, you know, it happens to the best of us. I wanted to end with a bang, but it wasn’t quite the bang I intended but a little bit of drama on stage.
“It was just a case of sheer exhaustion.”none
