Billy Joel cracks jokes during Miami performance

Billy Joel performed and took questions from audience members for two hours at the intimate Faena Forum in Miami — using a laser pointer to pick from the crowd. Joel joked, “It’s a laser beam, so I can neuter you or cut you in half.”

Joel, who has two young daughters, ages 2 and 4, revealed at the show that he isn’t great at lullabies. “I make up words every night when I am singing to them,” he said at the SiriusXM event. “They aren’t all that impressed.”

Joel’s been a longtime pug owner and just got a new pet. “I think I have a pug face,” he said. “It’s like another little me running around, except I don’t get to crap on the rug.”

Despite being a famed solo artist, Joel never saw himself as a frontman. “When I am writing songs I am writing thinking about other people singing them,” he explained. “When I started out I didn’t start out trying to be a pop star or a rock star. I had been in bands in my teenage years and I kind of said, ‘OK, instead of trying to be a rock star, I am going to try and be a songwriter’ . . . It turned out to be Billy Joel, which is still kind of funny to me because I don’t look like a rock star. I look in the mirror [and think] how’s that going to happen?”
