Joe Jonas, 24, isn’t at all surprised about Justin Bieber’s bad behavior, putting the blame on his “party animal” father Jeremy Bieber.
Jonas spoke with Scene Magazine and admitted the pressures of fame can get to you if you don’t have a parent steering you in the right direction.
The former Jonas Brother explained to Scene magazine, “I’ve had an easier route than most. The youngsters just turning 20, the Biebers of the world, are under a microscope. [Justin] is having a very tough time finding balance. I think we all saw it coming. Your dad is your party animal — that’s going to sum it up pretty quick. There’s an equation for some sort of explosion.”
Most of us would have to agree with Joe Jonas.
Joe has spoken previously about the pressures associated with Hollywood and fame, passing along a few words of wisdom he received.
Jonas said, “Something that I heard from someone I looked up to was, ‘watch the people around you and learn from their mistakes so you don’t make the same’. I just held on to that and any time I saw a celebrity I really looked up to screw up, I just was like ‘all right, I am not going to do that or try my best ability to avoid that,’ so it’s just a learning tool.”
Joe is currently working on new music, saying, “I’m trying to [make it] something that I really want it to be — do music that I’m really proud of and not let too many cooks in the kitchen. I’m really at the baby stages. I’m writing with people I like and admire, but I’m taking my sweet, sweet time with it.”
