Billy Joel's daughter has revealed she caught a sexually-transmitted disease from an ex-boyfriend.
The candid singer/songwriter insists her ex never cheated on her, but he was sexually active before their relationship and after.
Talking about contracting human papillomavirusher (HPV), Alexa Ray Joel tells website xoJane.com, "I had it, but I mean, a lot of people get it from my ex.
"There are no side effects. You just go and get it taken care of... I wasn't angry with him, because it's so common and he wasn't cheating on me. I mean, I was living with him; I saw him everyday."
This week, a U.S. federal government advisory committee voted to recommend that boys and young men, from the ages of 11 to 21, be vaccinated against HPV.
