Numerous online articles have recently been speculating about Alexa Ray Joel, son of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, and plastic surgery. Some have been harsh as the difference is quit drastic from her earlier days to now, at age 28. Alexa reponds to the rumors and says she isn’t letting them bring her down for simply “growing up”.
“This is absolutely hysterical!!!” she wrote in the comment section of Us Weekly.
The publication posted before and after images of the 28-year-old singer showing her transformation into womanhood as she looked stunning at a sold-out show at New York’s Café Carlyle on Tuesday. Speculations immediately followed indicating she’d had plastic surgery.
“I was 13 years old in the pic posted as a ‘before,'” she wrote April 2. “In this latter pic, I am 28 years old (that’s the age I am now.)”
She pegged shedding baby weight throughout the years and “stage makeup” for her radical transformation.
“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,” she insisted. “Obviously I’m going to look different.”
Joel did admit to having plastic surgery in the past, but nothing drastic.
“I have only gotten one nose-job done,” she confessed. “That is the absolute extent of the surgeries I have had.”
With that being said, the brunette beauty didn’t hold back from slamming the haters.
“I’m very sorry to disappoint everyone who wants to believe that I have had multiple surgeries, but that just simply isn’t true,” she wrote.
