(Newser) – His daughter's drug possession charges have been dropped, but the gossip hasn't been so quick to fade away. So Bon Jovi himself addressed 19-year-old Stephanie Bongiovi's Nov. 14 heroin overdose in an interview with My Fox LA yesterday, calling it a "tragedy" but seeming relatively unruffled. "This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we'll get through it. And people's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good."

He continued, "What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous but if you don't take it too seriously it's a great way to make a living. And then life goes on. Things happen."
