Expect some purple.

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

“If Prince is renting your house for $70,000 a month, you should expect some purple” sounds pretty obvious to me. But expect your bedroom to be converted into a hair salon? Expect purple stripes painted onto the exterior of your $8.5 million mansion?

The melodiously-named Alice Alyce is suing diminutive road hazard Billy Joel’s musical — Movin’ Out — for $100 million as punishment for her unfair dismissal. Apparently, her breasts were considered too large (huh?) and she was accused of faking a toe injury (huh?). No word from BJ, but the plaintiff adds: “[A]s an entertainer, and the father of a daughter, you’d think he’d understand,” says Alyce. “I do hope he calls me.”

Unfortunately Alyce, I don’t think Joel speaks Loony.
