    Alexa Ray Joel, the daughter of Billy Joel and his ex-wife, model Christie Brinkley, has revealed she caught a sexually-transmitted disease from an ex-boyfriend. She says her ex did not cheat on her, but that he was sexually active before their relationship, so that's likely how she got HPV.

    Joel, who is also pursuing a singing career, revealed that she contracted human papillomavirus (HPV). She told xojane, one of my favorite websites that I bookmark and check daily for the entertaining, informative and "sassy" read, that "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 every day."

    Ups to ARJ for being honest, open and shedding light and educating young people about this silent but damaging illness. Did you know a government advisory committee voted to recommend that boys and young men, from the ages of 11 to 21, be vaccinated against HPV?

    What do you think of HPV legislation?
