A reaction to the news that our beloved Billy Joel is canceling his memoirs is today's bittersweet video lunch. Mr. Pressure, in a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday, said he'd changed his mind, and that it took writing the "The Book of Joel" to realize that he didn't want to talk about it.

Said Joel, "The best expression of my life and its ups and downs has been and remains my music." Fair enough, Big Shot.

The HarperCollins publication set to release in June was "billed as an 'emotional ride' that would detail the music legend's failed marriages, including his union with Christie Brinkley, as well as his battles with substance abuse," notes the AP.
