Demi Lovato Responds Maturely To Joe Jonas, Who’s Lucky He Didn’t Write About Taylor Swift

Demi Lovato attending X Factor season three finalist party November 2013

As you might already know, earlier this week Joe Jonas released a tell-all essay for New York Magazine (as told to Jennifer Vineyard) in which he reveals, among other things, that he lost his virginity to Ashley Greene. The article seems to go on forever and can be summed up with three words: “Woe is me.” He blames a lot of people for his unhappiness, including his former girlfriend Demi Lovato. Here’s some of what he had to say about her:

I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn’t express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect.

Demi Lovato responded yesterday on Twitter, and because she’s Demi Lovato and her middle name is Maturity, she took the high road and shared support.

Unfortunately Demi’s sister Dallas didn’t take the same approach:

Do I tend to agree with Dallas? Yes. Do I think Twitter is the right place to hash it out? No. As entertaining as Twitter feuds can be, I think we can all agree it’s not exactly the responsible, mature way to go about things.

Speaking of maturity, can you imagine if Joe had shared details about his relationship with Taylor Swift? He did at one point say that he’d known some “batshit crazy” girls. Iiiinteresting. Regardless, if Joe had complained about that relationship, I’m pretty sure it would be a different story. If we didn’t get a song out of it, we’d probably get some coy interview answer about how terrible boys can be accompanied by a wink so large people reading the quote in a magazine would be able to feel it through the pages. Or she’d go the Twitter route and make some silly inside joke with her fans like she did earlier this year when she decided she hadn’t mentioned that Kanye West incident enough.

Yeah, Joe’s lucky he chose to talk about Demi. We’ll leave it at that.

    Actually, she mentioned kanye in an interview just once, so i think that’s not a lot! Do you? Oh, and about two tweets. Te media blew it up far more than she did. AND she wrote a song saying “who you are is not what you did, you’re still an innocent”. so I think she’s pretty mature *shrug*

    • Wow

      I agree Swift lives on the high road. Press and bloggers live on the low road.

      Also, in that one interview (it was The View I think) she talked about here thought process and what she felt, saying she’d gladly accept his apology if he gave one to her. Since then, she always asked for another question when someone tried to ask her about it, so i don’t get how kanye thinks she rode the waves. If anything, he’s publicly talked more about it than her!(which is to be expected, since he IS a first class asshole)

    Kii. You must have missed that small video clip demi did dragging joe. Maturity my as/s. But this does not even matter, right? This post was made to get some attention with the usual Taylor negativity. So predictable.

    • OnionsAndCheese

      Show me where she mentioned Joe’s name and I might believe you. Other than that, this is just speculation.

  • NLOG

    Didn’t this bit of the interview kinda hint at taylor swift? or is that just me reading too much into it?
    “I genuinely don’t have any resentment against any of my exes. So I’m not going to disparage anyone I was in a relationship with—only I might put it in my music a little bit, and hint at it, and tease it here and there, just enough for the fans and the people who really know the story. But I’m not going to openly say, “Yeah, actually, this person is a bitch, and she did this to me.” I don’t feel the need to do that to sell records.”

  • Christopher McNair

    Demi’s sister got on twitter to cut Joe down just for the attention. Fuuny she didn’t think of that while she was being a hypocrite.

    • OnionsAndCheese

      Of course it was for attention. She wanted to bring his hypocrisy TO attention however for the most part she’s unknown. To say she is a hypocrite for standing up for her family is frankly ridiculous on your end.

  • OnionsAndCheese

    What can I say about Joe Jonas that hasn’t been said before? Professional victim, pathetic woe is me attitude? You guys pretty much summed it up when it comes to this scum bag.
