Alexa Ray Joel talks about depression

Publication: People
Date: 17 May 2010

Billy Joel's daughter made her first tabloid appearance of the year last week because she was getting plastic surgery. This week, she talks to People about her problems with depression.

Usually, celebrities open up about their personal problems only after the stories have been plastered all over the covers of the Only Ten Magazines That Matter, but People has had this story and Melanie Griffith talking about her substance abuse, even though Alexa and Melanie are not in the negative spotlight. I want to commend People for telling these stories, as it could help readers who are facing similar problems in their not so glamorous lives.

Depression is a legitimate, common condition that's highly treatable.
If the kid wants to talk about her experiences with depression, good for her.
Depression lost its stigma about three decades ago.
