"Good Morning America" aired a clip today from Alexa Ray Joel's upcoming interview with "20/20," in which she addressed her recent struggles, enduring a childhood in the limelight, and how she's making a name for herself as a singer/songwriter.

This past December, Alexa was hospitalized after taking too many homeopathic pills following a breakup with musician/boyfriend Jimmy Riot.

In the revealing interview, Joel doesn't shy away from anything, telling Chris Cuomo, "I wasn't trying to kill myself... I was panicked... I was not thinking clearly at all -- I was in so much pain, I just wanted to numb it... When he left, I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I didn't know who I was."

Joel is hoping to emerge as an artist in her own right with a new album, "Notice Me." See the entire "20/20" interview on Friday, June 18, at 10PM on ABC.
