Billy Joel, 55, marries 23-year-old

CENTRE ISLAND, N.Y. - Singer-songwriter Billy Joel (news) married his fiancee, 23-year-old Kate Lee, in a ceremony Saturday at his Long Island mansion, his record label said. Joel, 55, wed Lee in a sunset wedding at his waterfront home, Newsday reported in its online editions. Columbia Records, Joel's label, announced the marriage Saturday night. A spokeswoman for Joel could not immediately be reached for comment.

Joel, who was previously married twice, including to supermodel Christie Brinkley, has had more than two dozen Top 10 hits, including his signature song "Piano Man," which was released in 1973 and became a hit the next year.

Last month, Joel's star was placed on Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Pantages Theatre, where the Tony Award-winning musical based on his songs, "Movin' Out," is playing through Oct. 31. He is also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Lee, a native of Huntington, W.Va., recently graduated from Ohio's Miami University and works as a restaurant correspondent for the PBS show "George Hirsch: Living It Up!" She and Joel began dating last year, according to Newsday.

Wonder how many dead trees it took to print a copy of the pre-nup?

My friends say no don't go
For that cotton candy
Son you're playing with fire
The kid will live and learn
As he watches his bridges burn
From the point of no return

Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

Maybe we could parody this. Any ideas?

Reminds me of the old joke. "Hey Mr. Joel how did you get a 23 year old girl to marry a 55 yo millionaire?".."I told her I was a 75 yo millionaire...".

"I don't recall her having a good reason for it."

As I recall, she had been very circumspect in her remarks, in deference to her then-younger daughter's feelings for her father. Brinkley had only stated that just because someone can write a good song full of feeling doesn't mean that he is that same person he writes from.

On the other hand, he's likely a liberal putz who sticks to music and not politics. As I recall, his only major political activity was trying to save blue-collar fishermen from being priced and taxed out of their own homes by nouveau-riche wannabes who moved into the Hamptons.

He's not on Bruce's Tour of Fools, and writes pretty damned good music. That's good enough for this old Joel fan. . .

Moral-liberals are allowed to get married and have families. They don't have to be personally involved in promiscuity, prostitution, pornography, perversion, adultery, sodomy, homosexuality, and abortion, (even as they preach and proselytize such things to young people and belittle and ridicule virtue while laughing all the way to the bank.)

But they are expected to adhere to moral-liberal PC thinking that such evils are okay for others.
