Billy Joel to look for love in town
NEW YORK (AP) -- Billy Joel says he's looking for someone to spend his life with, and plans to rent an apartment in Manhattan to meet women.
"I'm not going to meet anyone out here," said Joel, who lives in East Hampton, a posh community in nearby Long Island. "In my whole life, I haven't met the person I can sustain a relationship with yet. So I'm discontented about that. I'm angry with myself. I have regrets."
