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.
