Joe Jonas is growing up and with that comes going solo, throwing out his purity ring, and growing some facial hair. In a recent interview with Details Magazine he gives us a sneak peek into what we can expect from his upcoming solo album, hinting that there just may be a Taylor Swift song on there!!!
On Growing Apart From The Band
“I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe says. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”
On His Solo Project
“I wanted to do something you could hear in a club or something you could dance to, something that’s fun—something that’s me. I think it was definitely because I was getting older. But it was also a kind of a scary thought. ‘Cause you go, ‘I don’t want to offend my brothers.’ You know?”
On Taylor Swift
I think all artists have a right to write about what happens to them. But,” he adds with a smile, “I have a right to write about things too.”
He won’t say whether his album will contain a Swift rebuttal—just that there will be songs about “different love scenarios that I’ve been through, breakups, hurts. Me hurting somebody and feeling bad about it. I think there’s a lot of scenarios where people might wanna hear my side of the story.”
It’s a pretty good interview overall. Read more here.
