Well, right after I finish up a post about how Jessica Simpson has totally figured her shit out and seems to be doing OK despite being a woman scorned and a card carrying member of the “my dog got eaten by a coyote” club, I read that Alexa Ray Joel’s suicide attempt most likely had something to do with some man she’s dating. The sad part is, this woman is only 23 years old, the most flailiest of all the years I spent flailing. It’s incredibly sad to see a young girl with all the resources and potential in the world let what will ultimately be a trivial moment in her life get to her in such a way.
People Magazine is reporting this story like Joel is some tortured artist/genius type that went all Picasso-meets-DJ AM, but I sincerely doubt that it’s much more than her being a 20-something lady having a freakin’ meltdown over a dude. From their site:
Being prone to emotional highs and lows was nothing new to the singer – and she spoke candidly about her frustration with relationships.
In August, the singer took to herto vent about relationships, writing, “UGH!!! MEN!!!”
She continued: “Is anybody else finding it a difficult “dating world” out there? I’m so terrible at dating – I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it! And I HATE the game-playing! Can’t stand it.
I live in the greatest city in the world and I can’t seem to meet an interesting guy who also happens to be NICE. Go figure… “
Damn. Can’t believe she’s still using MySpace to communicate to her fans. ANYWAY!
Does anyone else find this story particularly sad because it’s just some famous broad and famous dude’s kid having a nervy b over the fact that she and the bro she’s dating got in a fight? Is there no one in this girl’s life who can be like “Look. Go sit at your piano and chill out. Use this time to do something creative. You will be surprised what comes out of you. If you want to just lay in bed and cry, that’s understandable, but only do that for a little bit and then go make something of yourself”?
