Alexa Ray Joel looked a little different when she took the stage this week at her debut-show at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC and people began to speculate that Alexa had undergone some plastic surgery. Now Alexa has admitted to getting her nose done, but slammed the rumor she has had additional work done. She credits a good makeup artist with her new look. She wrote on Instagram, “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).”

She added, “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, on that note… Please join me for an intimate evening of music, martinis, [and more!] at the Cafe Carlyle- get your tickets now- the shows are almost all sold-out!!!!!!”

If you really do look at the photos it looks like she did a lot of contouring to  define her face. I totally believe her when she says she hasn’t done any additional work on her face.

And Alexa herself addressed the plastic surgery rumor in the Us Magazine article comments. “This is absolutely hysterical!!! I was 13 years old in the pic posted as a ‘before’. In this latter pic, I am 28 years old [that’s the age I am now], 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. Obviously, I’m going to look different. It’s called “growing up”! I have only gotten one nose-job done. That is the absolute extent of the surgeries I have had. I’m very sorry to disappoint everyone who wants to believe that I have had multiple surgeries, but that just simply isn’t true. Dramatic makeup and a push-up bra can go a long way though– and I tend to favor an ultra-glam, dramatic look when I am performing- especially at such a dressy venue. Anyways…. sorry to disappoint everyone… I don’t have low self-esteem at all, contrary to all of your unsubstantiated opinions, and I accept and love myself for exactly who I am, as every empowered woman should! To the nasty bullying-bloggers who seem to get a kick out of picking a part, psychoanalyzing, and objectifying complete strangers…. Why not take a long look in the mirror and worry about yourself? -Alexa Ray”
