I have never, ever, ever understood all the hoopla behind the Jonas Brothers but apparently they are all the rage. I guess I grew up in a New Kids on the Block age (the first time around) and was the appropriate age to be madly in love with all of them at some point or another and maybe this is the same sort of thing. So, for any 14-year-olds that read this blog, or anyone else who cares about this boy band, the word is out – Joe Jonas is a DOG! I first heard that he broke up with Taylor Swift over the phone on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and that’s the first time that I really ever sat up and took notice when the Jonas name was mentioned. I don’t care how old you are or how big you think you are in the land of Tinseltown, breaking up with someone over the PHONE – is never, ever cool. Ever. Now I guess he’s trying to defend himself on MySpace in an attempt to make fans understand why the phone call was so short. From the Daily Blabber,
“Several things I will state with all my heart,” Joe, who reportedly dumped country singer Taylor Swift for new girl, actress Camilla Belle. “I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause you to think less of me.”
As for the very short phone call Taylor said Joe made to break up with her, the teen dream says he wasn’t the one who hung up first.
“For those who have expressed concern over the ’27 second’ phone call, I called to discuss feelings with the other person,” he writes, never naming Taylor in the post at all. “Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk.”
Taylor recently went on record saying that Joe broke up with her once he met Camilla, which Joe says was absolutely not the reason for the split.
“Anytime you are in a relationship for any length of time there are going to be issues,” he writes. “Sometimes they resolve. Other times they lead to a change of heart. This was the case recently.”
Yeah okay. I don’t even care if he broke up with her for some other chick – that happens and he’s right, sometimes the heart does move on. I hope he’s being honest when he says that he didn’t cheat on Swift because that would take the DOG to a whole new level but he’s probably not (being honest, that is.) What I do have a problem with is the fact that he seems upset that she hung up on him, and that it excuses the phone call in the first place. Okay, ya know what? She had every single right to hang up on a jerk that would end a relationship over the phone. I don’t care how long they went out for or how old they are – it’s disrespectful to the person and it’s disrespectful to the time they shared together.
And he’s ugly – there, I said it.
