So was this a compliment or a diss?
During a recent concert in New York City, Billy Joel dedicated the song “The Entertainer” to GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
If this Tweet is any indication, Trump seemed to take it as a compliment.
Thank you @BillyJoel– many friends just told me you gave a very kind shoutout at MSG. Appreciate it- love your music!

But, it looks like it may have been more of a knock on The Donald, because according to the Newsmax website, Billy Joel once dedicated his song, “New York State of Mind” to Ted Cruz after Cruz mocked New York values.
When asked about it, Billy Joel joked, “Who cares about the political opinions of a piano player?”
