Joe Jonas just released a New York Magazine essay about his work with the Disney Channel, his relationship with Demi Lovato and his fight with his brothers over the Jonas Brothers band. Joe was nervous about the backlash from the article, telling Us Weekly:
I feel really relieved actually. I was very nervous releasing it. I hit kind of an anxiety wall where I was like, ‘S**t am I about to do this? This is kind of nerve-wracking.’ But then you just look at it on a different scale. You’re like, ‘This is my life and this is my story for myself to tell whoever is interested and let them inside the crazy life I’ve lived!’ I wanted to make sure I spoke to [my family] ahead of time and give them a heads-up that this is coming out. They had a very cool reaction to it. My brother Nick was like, ‘Hey dude, it’s your interview.’ That kind of speaks for itself. I felt really good about releasing it.
And here’s how Demi reacted to the article, in which Joe revealed that he only stayed in a relationship with her because she needed help:
I want to commend him for how brave he was. He never was able to share his side of the story, he kept it really quiet. I was going through my stuff, and he got blamed for a lot of it. When in reality, I have my stuff and we argue like brother and sister now. It’s like, ‘Dude, what were you thinking?’ But it’s all good. I was like, Don’t be embarrassed or whatever. I still love you. We’re still family. It’s all good.’
