Billy Joel Has Something To Say
Since Elton John gave Billy Joel some “tough love” and called him out as an alcoholic in a Rolling Stone interview, the two iconic musicians have been back and forth against each other in the media.
Elton said he knew his longtime friend would “hate him” for it, but he was quite outspoken about the piano man needing to “do something better” with his life and enter into a real rehab program for his “alcoholism.”
Billy told the press last week he’s “worked with Elton for such a long time and I’ve enjoyed our relationship too much to let something as random as these comments change my affection for him. Elton is just being Elton.”
But on Friday, Billy released a statement through his publicist making his thoughts on Elton very clear.
The piano man wrote:
1. I do not hate Elton John.
2. I do not want to “punch him in the face.”
3. If he wants to call me, my number is still the same.
4. Good luck with the movie.
Maybe we all can just get along as they say. We will have to wait and see how it all plays out.
