(Newser) – The daughter of Billy Joel remains hospitalized after overdosing on sleeping pills. Police sources tell the New York Post they think it was a suicide attempt by 23-year-old Alexa Ray Joel. The daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley is a singer and pianist in her own right, and she is expected to survive. She'd been grousing on her MySpace page recently about a recent breakup and how hard it is to date in New York City.
