Was it hard to tell your brothers you were going to release a solo album? I told them about two years ago. We were in Rome, Italy. We were talking about our plans and I told about my solo project. They loved my idea and and even
encouraged me to do it. Influences? I listened to a lot of electronica music. Guys like Kanye West, Coldplay and Empire Of The Sun influenced me. Do you ever get scared about losing Jonas Brothers fans? I think people liked & understood my new look on music. Luckily, the number of fans I will have will increase and
many fans have stuck around. You praised Demi Lovato’s last album. How did you feel while listening? I’m so glad she had all support she needed and she’s happy now. Demi is so special to me. How do you react when you read negative criticism about you? Sometimes, they get me sad. Especially when it’s about my music, which is something I’ve worked really hard on. I’ve been hurt.
And it isn’t even only with the critics but with the fans too. What do you think about your comparison with Justin Bieber? I’m flattered, but it’s hard to believe. Justin is Justin. Anyone can compare us. He has an amazing career. Of course he is an example, but I don’t see me reaching all he has reached. (laughs) Source.
Capricho: Are you still going to act?
Joe Jonas: Yeah. I’m working on a movie with a buddie. It’s a project I have been wanting to do for a long time ago. It has drama, action, adventure. Besides producing the movie, I’m thinking about acting in it.
Capricho: Are you the kind of boy that can remain friends with your exes?
Joe Jonas: Yeah, it’s important to keep good friends. I’ve been lucky becoming friends of some exes. I’m nice with them. (laughs) If we dated, that’s because we have some kind of connection. It’s hard to say goodbye.
Capricho: What kind of boyfriend would you say you are?
Joe Jonas: I treat the girl like a princess, with respect. I travel from anywhere I’m on tour, just to see her. My girlfriend is always the high priority on my appointment book.
Capricho: Have you ever been dumped and did it inspire into a song?
Joe Jonas: Yeah, I’ve been dumped before and it makes me respect the girls that wanna date me. (laughs) What happens is: we learn really good thing in relationships and it appears on the songs.
Capricho: Have you ever cried about a girlfriend?
Joe Jonas: Yeah, it happens sometimes. (laughs) This is the kind of experience you have to pass by. At this moment, music helps you to run from the sadness.
Capricho: What do you listen to when you’re sad?
Joe Jonas: The Band Of Horses’ song, ‘No One’s Gonna Love You’, which is beautiful. That one is so good to listen when you’re sad.
Capricho: Your iPhone doesn’t stop ringing..
Joe Jonas: I’m sorry for the messages tone. (laughs)
Capricho: What’s the most useful gadget you have?
Joe Jonas: My iPhone. I use it all the time, the battery is always dying. I always bring more then one charger in my luggage… but i always lose it. (laughs)
Capricho: Kevin’s married already.. Do you ever think about getting married?
Joe Jonas: No. For now, the focus is totally on my music.
Capricho: But you don’t even think about it? Like, in ten years…
Joe Jonas: In ten years? Yeah, that’s a good idea. (laughs)
