Billy Joel Responds To Elton John!

We're glad he doesn't take the comments personally, but he might want to consider what his friend is saying!

In light of Elton John's recent comments that Billy Joel should get his shit together and go into a serious rehab program, the singer has responded, and frankly, we're not too impressed!

He reveals:

“I’ve 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.”

Maybe, but he's also trying to be your friend, and let you know that you need HELP, bb!

It's time to get your act together! Your music has meant too much to too many people for you to let your career go down this path!

Thoughts??

    Elton did that out of love. I miss old Billy Joel's great music. If Elton didn't say anything he would be no friend.

    Elton John has habitually spilled (whether what he has to say is true or not) about everyone he knows in show business throughout his entire career. I'm surprised that anyone will work with him. I've seen Billy Joel and Elton John in concert together and Billy Joel blew (Oh, shut up!) Elton John off the stage. Elton is probably just jealous because while both are close in age, Billy looks leather bear sexy while Elton looks like someone's grandmother.

    ELTON THINKS BILLY HAS A MENTAL PROBLEM????? HELLO, ELTON YOU ARE OPENLY GAY, YOU ARE "MARRIED" TO ANOTHER DUDE!!!! WHO REALLY NEEDS TO GET THE HELP????

    ALCOHOLICS, AS BAD AS THEY ARE, ARENT NEARLY AS BAD AS HOMOSEXUALS!!!!!!

    Friends don't go to the press with their "help," they can do it face-to-face, on the phone, etc. Elton just likes publicity.

    Seriously, as well intentioned as EJ thought his tough love comments in that great publication Rolling Stone were…he of all people with his battles with drugs, alcohol and debt, put him in a very hypocritical position.
    He still owes many people from many years past money and jets about all above it all.

    Billy Joel doesn't owe anyone anything. My god, can't the man relax and do nothing if he wants ? He's certainly earned it. LEAVE HIM ALONE

    There's always the possibility that Billy doesn't have a problem and that your Lord and Savior Elton was wrong.

    With all due respect to Elton, it really showed a lack of tact on his part to comment on his friends sobriety through the press. If you call yourself a friend, you just don’t do things like that. He should have talked to Billy personally about his concerns for his health. Just my opinion.

    I kind of like Billy's response. If he does need help, I hope he'll think about it. If he doesn't, at least he has a sense of humor about Elton shooting off his mouth. I've seen Elton and Billy in concert together twice. The first time, they were both AWESOME! The second Elton's voice was shot and Billy was way better. It's funny to see them together, though. For two people whose musical styles are so similar, their personal styles couldn't be more different. In one show, Billy was wearing all black, and Elton was in head-to-toe red sequins. You had to laugh.
