You didn’t know Billy Joel was Jewish?

Are you kidding? Mama Leona? Catholic girls start much too late? Scenes from an Italian restaurant? And that’s just three Italian and/or Catholic references off the top of my head.

His name’s William Joel. Does that sound Italian?

William Joseph Martin Joel?! What Jew has not one but two middle names?

The Billy Joel thing is a total shock. Although i always thought he “looked Jewish” i would never have pegged him as one. Mainly of the lyrics Karol sites and him never talking about it. A;though i did know Paula Abdul was Jewish though.

Beck is a Scientologist, not a Jew. Assuming the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

You couldn’t tell by looking at him??? Oh Karol, your Jewview is appalling! I can def. see being surprised by Pink, J. Giels and a few others though.

You Catholic girls start much too late. He was trying to get into a shiksa’s pants.
For the record, he was also not a lobsterman.

Billy Joel I knew. But Paula Abdul? Who’d think somebody with the last name “Abdul” (although it’s spelled differently) would be Jewish?

I always heard Paula Abdul was Egyptian – but that could just be her ancestry. My father’s original last name is fairly popular amongst Muslims (yet we are and always have been Jewish) but it is actually just very native to the area they were from in an older Morocco, so who knows.

I don’t mean to sound like some sort of pop culture savant, but, yes, I knew all of these people were Jewish.

http://www.jewhoo.com used to be a pretty good site to check if a celeb was jewish but seems like they are having funding issues and have switched to a blog format

William Shatner was the name that surprised me. Karol, will you ever meet a nice boy if you can’t spot them?
