Joe Jonas, ‘Success Isn’t Forever’

joebruin-2


Joe Jonas UCLA Daily Bruin interview. What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started as an artist? Probably that once you have success, don’t expect it to be there forever. Not that I’m saying like I feel like I’m starting over completely. I’m lucky to have lots of fans, and a lot of time, people assume that if

..I’m a superstar, I’ll be a superstar for life. It doesn’t work like that, and not every record is going to be as successful as the last one. My father always put us in a mindset of living like you’re at the bottom even if you’re at the top, and that goes with everything. Read full article HERE!

    His solo album flopped pretty hard huh? :L Not surprised to be 100% honest.

  • SmellsLikeTeenSpirt

    Please Joe stop trying to be modest. We all know you’re cocky about your looks and about your album.

    My thoughts xD He’s such an arrogant prat :L

  • MileyIsASkank

    can’t wait till miley’s ugly no-talent ass goes away. she’s already got more haters than fans

  • springstrawberry

    The Jonas Brothers are always sooo humble ! This is why I love them ! What if his album is flopping ? That makes him a joke ? So if you’re not relevant you don’t deserve to make music ?

  • MileyEqualsAwesome

    Please he thinks he’s hot stuff.

  • skyaintThelimitx

    joe changed a lot. :/ i think nick deserves to be the one with the new album & such. he clearly has the most talent. hopefully with his return to broadway, it’ll bring a return of super-fame. he really does deserve it..

    ——-

    So your point is that Joe doesn’t deserve to make his dreams come true?? Nick had an amazing album, HE DID, and people didn’t appreciate it that much. He had his chance and he’s still doing what he wants, which makes me so happy BUT I think that to say what you just said after reading this interview its very selfish, considering that he’s talking about how he doesn’t really care about popularity but to keep on doing what he loves to do and considering that Nick hasn’t stopped doing all the things he fucking wants since late 2009 as a SOLO artist.

    haha. alright. first off, i’m a fan of joe but i lost a lot of respect for him in the past year or so. stop taking my words and twisting them. my opinion is my opinion, and pretty much irrelevant to what you said. personally, i prefer them as a band. nick has always been and always will be my favorite. joe can be a great guy but he seems like he could be a diva sometimes. i didn’t ask for you to hate on me or my comment, and if you don’t like it, then go away. :)

    the OhMy kid’s really annoying, no one’s even reading ur long comments so stfu

  • writteninthestars

    um. sorry but joe is the one who thinks he’ll be more famous/famous again, with this solo crap. let’s be honest, he’s only relevant with his brothers as a band. but their time is over.

    He’s not saying he doesn’t want to be successful because OBVIOUSLY nobody works hard to fail. What he’s saying is that HE KNOWS you wont be always at the top, which is true, doesn’t matter what your profession is. And if they weren’t relevant, why are you on OceanUp reading a post about Joe Jonas and commenting about him and his brothers? :D

  • OhMy…

    Haters only hate the things they can’t get and the people they can’t be.

  • NeleeeV

    OhMy: I love your reactions.. I was about to say the same to those people who turn Joe’s words… God He’s such a down to earth man! He knows it won’t stay forever, lets hope it does though, and he doesn’t care about fame. He only wants to share his passion.

    I love Joe so much. Haters gonna hate.

  • NeleeeV

    I can’t with people who say Joe doesn’t care about his fans and only about the money. It’s the exact opposite.

    Joe baby, never let haters get to you!

  • m

    His album is flopping pretty hard on iTunes.
    None of his album songs are in the top 200. Only the Lil Wayne remix…..

  • Stru?
  • liss1

    I’m so proud of Joe. His album is great

  • NeleeeV

    yeah sure he’s flopping very hard, #8 right now, #1 in other countries. Thousands of peoples buying it. in my city, it’s all sold out, in other cities over here as well. Just shut up and know what flopping is.

  • memisucksballs

    but ur still delusional

  • peacelovehearts

    *applauds* HE’S NOT DELUSIONAL AFTER ALL!

  • Grease

    i loge you joseph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Grease

    ????? ???????!!!

  • IbeKpoppin4realz

    Dang, that’s deep Joe. That’s really deep but, I understand , that’s how you and your bros stayed so humble.

  • JoeHoe15

    Jonas Brothers are probably the MOST HUMBLE superstars I know. <3

  • iamruth

    this is why i loved the jonas brothers they were just so humble and greatfull for everthing.

  • lov2shop123

    Well at least he knows that he won’t always be successful. And also that even if you are famous for awhile you won’t always be. But he should know that people fade out. I mean you don’t have to be famous to figure that out.

  • NeverSayNever

    joe changed a lot. :/ i think nick deserves to be the one with the new album & such. he clearly has the most talent. hopefully with his return to broadway, it’ll bring a return of super-fame. he really does deserve it..

  • anonmus

    At least he’s honest. It’s tough to start out as a teen idol. All of your fans are female. Plus illegal downloads of music and people are not going to concerts like they used to. But the Jonases are unbelievably hard workers. With talent. That counts for something. Most teen guys I know are in front of a computer or a Playstation.
