Dylan Sprouse Responds To Joe Jonas

dylan sprouse hot
A fan asked Dylan via Tumblr if he had read Joe Jonas’s interview with VULTURE Magazine, and he responded saying: I read the article and I have a couple things to say. Most formally the idea that Disney and the corporations ‘gentrified them.’

First, I think it’s bullshit that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney ‘NO’. Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame. Granted, Cole and I had been acting our entire lives, so we saw it as a means to an end (money making) rather than an opportunity to become successful.

Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a ‘rigid structure to achievement’. It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalise the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST.

Individuality is modernity’s most interesting trait regarding artwork and so so many talented individuals realize this. You do not have to become something else to be successful. Not only is it not too late for them to redefine themselves now, it was never too late. What that article felt like was: ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, still shame on you.’ My personal creed? “Fool me once, you’ll forever regret that decision.”

    Kind of love how these two(I know it’s only one) don’t hold back anymore lol. I can’t help but agree, though didn’t Joe say that they went along with everything because they wanted the fame?

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      That’s what Dylan said they did: “The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame”

      This is all so interesting tbqh. I hope other disney channel stars stand up and come out about this too

    • queenofshade

      I think Joe was talking about HWR more than anything tbh, which dylan was never apart of.

  • Me

    This ugly, untalented little fuck can’t possibly think his and his equally fugly brother’s story even remotely compares in any way to Joe’s? They were little kids who came in and read their lines with their creepy little bowl haircuts. Joe and his brothers were musicians and songwriters and true artists. Dylan and Cole were never “artists” they were child actors, who only left Disney because their show didn’t get accepted. Now they act so above it all. They were never heartthrobs. They did not pass into adulthood in the public eye. This little twit made himself look like a real asshole with his big words and pretentious attitude. You tried fug-face, but you’ll never come close.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      gurl bye. Dylan knows truth. Their show was one of the most successful Disney shows ever tbqh. you need to go –NEED to go.

    • laufeyson

      EXCUSE ME? The Suite Life of Zack and Cody was my childhood — hell, even my parents liked it. It was undeniably one of Disney’s best shows.

      You make it sound like “coming in and reading their lines” is easy. It’s actually not. In an industry that’s so competitive, an actor can’t just barge into a set unprepared regardless of whether his show is a comedy sitcom or not. The Sprouse twins didn’t just magically get their parts and earn money out of it — they had to work just as hard as everyone else in the channel had to.

    • kdelly

      they had plenty of fame and plenty of great roles in amazing movies and shows, like big daddy, friends, their own TWO shows on disney. They didn’t take the singing road because they didn’t want too or need too, every actor is an “artist” so shut you’re mouth on that comment. I had a gown cut when I was young (i’m their age now), IT WAS THE FUCKING STYLE dimwit.
      ALSO suite life of zack and cody ran 05-08 (3 years)
      suite life on deck ran the rest of 08-11 (another 3 years) SOOOOOO thats 6 years running and a total of 6 seasons and 158 episodes
      Hannah Montana ran 06-11 (5 years), 4 seasons, and 99 episodes.
      Wizards ran 07-12 (5 years), 4 seasons, and 106 episodes.
      AND last but not least
      Jonas ran 09-10 (1 year), fish seasons, and 34 episodes.
      The sprouse brothers worked their asses off but didn’t let disney control them therefore the didn’t HAVE to pass into adulthood in the public eye. They chose this life
      They’re both getting their educations unlike other disney stars who think their fame and money will lat them forever. There are so many stars out there with no higher education and no degrees. so yeah the pretty much won when it comes to disney

  • He really could have…

    Damn I love how he don’t give a….anymore. I don’t feel bad for Joe or his brothers to an extent. That’s the beauty and downfall of human; freewill.

  • ty

    whats is wrong with him ?he is soo mean

  • Selena -that is my actual name

    You can tell this boy is in college, his rhetoric is impeccable, but he really shouldn’t compare himself with the Jonas Brothers.
    Not everyone has the audacity, especially not teenage boys, to say ‘no’ to a big corporations such as Disney. Many would just go along with it because fame and money are things that society has made us believe to be desirable. If he’s above it, good for him, but he should learn to stay humble.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      I think he is humble… someone asked him and he answered. I agree with you but I disagree with what you say about Dylan. Dylan is just being real with people.

      preaching to the choir girl. I love that he is not putting up with any of that bullshit and is straight up with people. Like I like how he even admits that he and his brother weren’t in it for fame — but for money lol. Which isnt necessarily a good thing, but that’s how they knew not to sacrifice power and decision making ability to management/superiors.

    Joe and his brothers doesn’t have balls to say NO. Now Joe is being ungrateful little shit and blame on the hands that fed them. Their fall from grace are more delicious to watch now.

  • Duckyhoward15

          • Duckyhoward15

            No we know that he is welling to do anything for publicity , he blamed his exes for his mistakes , didn’t thank the company that made him , the way he talked about his fans was bad , I don’t need to know someone to know how they are , your actions speak for you love , I am disappointed in him and I wish I was never his fan .

          • Gngn

            Haha well I wish I was never a fan of your fag idol

          • Duckyhoward15

            Calling someone fag is fucking immature and racist and this is why I won’t talk with you anymore atleast my idol is a nice guy who respects everyone and ADORES HIS FANS and never makes them look like they are cheap or crazy have fun being stupid

          • ghghn

            oh wow what imagination haha

            Racist? Faggot is a racist term?

          • Duckyhoward15

            Yes it is , people used to call gays/lesbians faggot as an insult its like the n word just so you know

          • ashleyofcourse

            honey please telll me your kidding. lmao the word youre looking for is derogatory, not racist. racist refers to race. the n word is racist, not fag.

          • Duckyhoward15

            I amn’t kidding , everyone I know hates it and say its a racist word especially if they have a gay/lesbian friend because they used to bully gays and call them faggots

          • kdelly

            totally agree with you! he did not take responsibility for ONE SINGLE thing in his life in that article (joe I mean) he just blames everyone else

          • anon

            I agree and I’m a Joe stan.

          • Duckyhoward15

            Mte he kept blaming demi and miley when demi kept it classy and never said bad word on him and then blamed nick when he is the one who shared his chance with them then didn’t stop and blamed disney and the girl that he hooked up with and talked about fans like they are cheap and crazy , he is disgusting

          • queenofshade

            all he said was that miley and demi wanted him to try weed like I don’t see where he blamed them at all? imo he told his side of him and demi’s relationship to shut the crazed jemi fans up who abuse his current gf all the time. I think I missed the part where he blamed the girl he hooked up with tho because all I saw was that he said he was happy he waited for someone he cared about. Other than that, he said that he was mad at his brother but realized that he was right all along. Yes, he talked about a bad fan experience but most jonas fans know that the fan (david) is a stalker who crosses the line multiple times so joe has every right to be upset by that. ugh.

          • Duckyhoward15

            You need to read the article again love :)

          • queenofshade

            I still don’t find anything wrong with it, but whatever floats your boat love :)

          • Duckyhoward15

            Firs he made it seem like Demi and Miley made him smoke wide , then he threw shade at taylor for writing songs about her exes then bite the hand that fed him (disney ) when here dylan says these things are untrue , then made demi sound pathetic and that he was with her so she can stay sane and when he left she lost it why can’t he see that bringing your gf on tour with you while you have your ex touring with you is a dick move then blamed nick on the break up then made fans seem cheap and crazy , I hope you see it now babe <3

          • queenofshade

            please quote where he ever blamed demi & miley or the girl he hooked up because I think I missed that part.

          • Duckyhoward15

            First when he said they made him try weed , kids will make someone who is 17/18 do something , he was like we were both scared and stuff like i just wanted a hook up , when he said he used advantage and dated fans made fans seem cheap when he made demi look fucking pathetic this is just rude love ATLEAST in my opinion

        • Duckyhoward15

          Exactly , thank you <3

      • Paper Planes

            Honestly he should just stop, the second he did that to Demi i stopped liking him, I knew it was PR and I can tell she was so fucking hurt, hes so stupid… he should be more mature about it and yea they’re wonderful dudes, and selena is so sweet i get that she can’t sing live very good but shes just really nice. my bestie met her and she was the sweetest, and aw thanks thats cute

  • ChaoticGrim

    Such a smart butt. This guy is realistic, mature, and HUMBLE. Did you know weird people are actually the brightest beings on earth? Be careful what you say. These twins actually got accepted by top universities. The jonas brothers didn’t go to college because they rather have media success achieve them instead. People choose their own paths. Lets not judge either individualities.

    • :)

      yes he sound really smart unlike Joe

    • Elena

      Dylan is so smart and that makes him sexier than any other dumbass wannabe celebrities *cough* Joe Jonas.

  • Rainbow3000

    Why can’t Joe go to college instead and get an education rather than becoming a D-list celebrity in Hollywood? Maybe by going to college, he will probably grow some brain cells and see the world in a different light than being a stuck up.

    • amy

      First of all, not everyone needs to go to college. Second of all, he should only go if he is actually interested in studying something. Third, you can’t grow braincells.

      • Joe = FAIL

        That’s why he’s not smart cause he doesn’t want to study and broaden his knowledge and education. Only knows how to whore himself out at twitter and instagram while doing 0 career wise development.

  • HaylorToU

    Great choice of words. You can tell he’s educated and an actual college student.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    In the Joe post I said “I’d pick artist integrity every time” Dylan just defined what I meant. And I’ve been saying this as well “not only is it not too late for them to redefine themselves now, it was never too late.” I wished they knew this.

    • ChaoticGrim

      From what I’ve seen, Kevin and Nick Jonas are in a healthy path. They’ve matured up decently. Joe has an attitude that’ll stubbornly cease when he hits the floor.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        Kevin has definitely grown more so than the rest, Nick is a leader but he needs to learn how to corporate and stop with the bossy attitude. Joe is hurt and knows how wrong the decisions his family made with their time at Disney was a mess. Now as an adult I don’t think he properly knows how to handle it. Him screaming at the meeting they held, shows he wasn’t ready to let the Jonas Brothers go. The whole bit about him slowly coming into clarity about why the break up was needed was bullshit (in my opinion).

        • queenofshade

          I believe joe did come to clarity about the band, but I don’t believe he’s happy about it. the fact that he exposed himself this much in order to separate himself from that image tells me that he’s still hurt about the past and hates being associated as jonas brother so imo he was still hurt and not as okay as he said he was when he wrote this.

      • kdelly

        I don’t know if i can agree with this, nick yes mature, but kevin? idk I find people who
        ve turned themselves into socialites very immature…plus remember hat one episode of married to jonas? “dani. Dani. DAni. DANi. DANI! Talk to me I just want to talk about my day” BLAH BLAH BLAH, dani just wanted some peace and fucking quiet

      • anon

        Nick? looool Nick’s ego has grown bigger then his head over the past years.

      • amy

        Kevin is definitely the most mature, but at the moment he isn’t on a great path because he technically doesn’t have a job right now. And nick is not definitely not mature or on a healthy past. Nick has just as much of an attitude as Joe does and nick is so egotistical that people won’t want to work with him. Joe is no worse off than any of them. They are just all in a period of transition right now and it is too soon to see how things will turn out.

  • JJ456

    It’s not always easy to say no, and I think Joe explained it well in his article why they didn’t say no. He didn’t say it was the RIGHT choice but at the time he was scared and yes, he wanted the fame- they worked so hard for so many years and had no money- so I don’t blame them for loving the fame and the money. I think Dylan needs to be more supportive and maybe stand up for Joe and other Disney stars who are afraid or aren’t brave enough to say no. It took Joe many years, but he FINALLY said NO, and walked away and now he is free to live his life as he pleases. Dylan of all people should know how terrified it is and how brave it is to walk away from Disney.

    • ChaoticGrim

      He knows, hence, why he departured from Disney. Everyone has their own opinion. We can’t force their mind to change into what we believe is right or wrong.

    • ashleyofcourse

      we also have to consider the relationship between joe and dylan. we dont know it, but i feel that might be a factor in his response.

      • JJ456

        Dylan made it no secret that he was never a fan of the Jonas brothers.

  • Ileanne Calderón

    The only reason dylan is so annoyed is because disney never made him or his brother that famous, dylan for your information you were never a musician its very different than being an actor, yes they wanted the fame and the money, but they also loved making music and in fact they said no !! To disney, you just have all !! To understand that they were kids you as an actor that we only saw in that serie never were in that kind of pressure, and you only have to see that youre so desperate for fame that now everytime we hear about you or your brother its because youre talking bad of someone else opinion or work,so im sorry if i belive that your opinion is completly unvalid here

    • ChaoticGrim

      You lack the view of each individual of different category. It doesn’t matter the position whether a musician, dancer, or actor. Everyone has struggled to reach fame. In all honesty, reaching a selfish reason for fame can sickened your mind gradually. It’s an invisible illness that’ll struck us when we realize everything is falling apart.

      • Ileanne Calderón

        Ok im sorry but i think you got me wrong, yes you’re right it doesnt matter if youre actor musician or dancer, my point is that those twins never had that fame, and yes they fight it for it, but he cant compare it to the fact of 3 boys that were the center of millions of eyes around the whole world.

    • just me

      you do know that Dylan and his brother are taking hiatus in acting because they actually want to be normal like go to college because when they were kids, they never get to be normal? I think that is such a humble thing to do. These two is not fame thirsty like Joe. A lot of educated actors go to college like Emma Watson, Natalie Portman. Maybe Joe should try to get an education because he sound so stupid in interviews. He’s nowhere as intelligent as Nick, even. HIS YOUNGER BROTHER.

      • Ileanne Calderón

        If they are in college thats amazing, if they want to be normal its even more amazing, but the jonas choose to stop being normal to do what they loved and everyone do it for fame and money, what do you think that they were working on disney for free ? Or that they never dreamed with an oscar ! Please put your feet on the ground, they wanted the fame so badly as the jonas the diference is that not everybody achives it

        • just me

          maybe dylan and cole did want it, but they change their mind didn’t they? instead of being another one of the kardashians and z-list who goes attend parties every night with no projects, the Sprouse brothers decides to go to college and get educated. But, then again Dylan is only 21, who knows he will come back to acting again in 10 years…

          • Ileanne Calderón

            Thats true, buy now you’re giving me the reason, they didnt want it to become their life, and the jonas have their proyects and one of them actually dreams of going to college, and youre also forgetting that being a musician even if its not forever its a career too, because they had to study and practice to become good at singing or playing any instrument, kevin is going to start his own bussiness and manage the jonas enterprises, the other two are going to do what they love, music

      Sorry you feel that way.

  • JUG

    Dylan is spot on. Joe could have said No. He CHOSE not to because the short term benefits of saying yes outweighed the long term costs of saying yes. He’s enjoyed the benefits of being a full-fledged teen idol. Now he’s paying the costs of being a former teen idol with no credibility at all as a musician. I hope others learn from him. Do not sell out for quick fame. It’s just not worth it in the long run.

    Zac Efron, despite his recent troubles, did have the courage to say no. After HSM, he turned down a record deal because he knew that he was not a real singer and was only getting a deal because of his millions of teen fans. Wonder if Joe ever turned anything down? Having watched the truly horrific Jonas LA, I would guess the answer is no.

    • cheap

      plus the reality show of kevin and danielle, they stoop to the level of kardashians

  • Silver

    You can tell he went to College…. I have been saying it all along, education trumps everything. Read that response and tell me if anyone of these young stars can speak like that even Selena and Taylor.

    Yasssss Dylan!!!!!! Yaassssssssssss. Slay mamaaaaa.

    In all seriousness though, I completely agree with everything he said. The Jonas Brothers were a massive sellout and it may have gotten them a year or 2 of fame, but they’ve suffered ever since. They had the potential to be a really awesome group that got taken seriously, but they CHOSE to sign with Disney and do that ridiculous show and all the crap they did.

    It was a choice they made for fame. Now that they’ve earned their millions, Joe wants to sell a “tell all” tale about the evil people at Disney for some more money? If they were unhappy about the direction of their careers, they could’ve and should’ve been vocal about it. After all, where was their DAD aka their manager in all of this? Oh right..pimping out his sons for fame and fortune. Joe is just bitter lmfao

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      YOU TELL THEM. You.. you tell them. This is the truth. Ask yourself this one question… WHERE WAS THEIR FATHER (their manager) IN ALL THIS DEBACLE? PREACH IT.

        I never thought about it until now, but their dad is the male equivalent of Kris Jenner lmfao. I always did sense something off about him..

        • in jesus name i pray amen

          well when you put it that way omg…. you right.

    • true

      best comment so far. i agree with everything. shame on their father for ALLOWING them to go any further in selling out.

  • ashleyofcourse

    dylan just said what was on everyones mind: JUST SAY NO
    but even more than that, i love him for preaching the words all future artists need to hear. be yourself. STAY yourself. dont sell out or be afraid of not doing what they say. technically if you got the talent, they need you. this isnt to say one should be conceited and big headed about it, but do recognize your worth and ability. you can say no to the multimillions which to some im sure would be pretty tempting but giving your soul, and yes that is basically what they do, is not worth it.
    they take your image and actions and mold it to what they want in order to influence the masses and in return you get good old fame and fortune.. good because we all know with fame is nothing but good good good right?-_-
    why people chase it is beyond me.
    i guess the need for love/attention is fo real.
    but the best part is what dylan said last.
    its not too late. they can still do it right.
    but i love how he put it:
    fool me once, youll forever regret that decision.
    10 for you boo boo, 10 for you.

  • Siel

    FINISH HA, Dylan! Put the Jonaii in their places!

  • grrr

    he’s fucking racist!! poor joe!!

    • ashleyofcourse

      and how so is he racist?

  • cerenagee

    Damnnn dylan kill em! I love the honesty! I love how he litersllly said exactly what we all were saying about the Disney stars. They could have said no but wanted fame

  • Ee

    well joe jonas was felling presure about the situation

  • loll

    Joe pretty much rocked the Disney company now

  • XaskTaylorX

    I’m so glad he said this. College has made him a little wiser in what he was saying in this article. People can make their own choices in making there own decisions. I mean you have to listen to your bosses at work, but if you do not think it sounds right, just say no.

    Again we also don’t know how it is to be a celeb though soooo. I see why Miley dresses like trash, she wants to be her own. There are many stars that have done well famous wise and have not turned to drugs or anything like that.

    • dfhgbdgw

      This is not true. They had completely different experiences. One is a musician that dabbled in acting. The other is purely an actor. Actors are “free agents” meaning they can do what they want (for the most part) in their contracts. “Free Agents” have a lower rate of consequences for just saying no. The Jonas Brothers were EMPLOYEES of Hollywood Records which is underwritten by Disney. As an employee, saying “No” can and many times will cost you your job. Dylan is an actor . There is many options for actors and they only work for a short period of time unless you are Denzel Washington. A recording contract can last 3-5 years and you basically say that you will do anything (within legal bounds) that they say in regards to your career (which is your life not a role). This means wear what they say, say what they say, move if they tell you to, and life a public life that is pleasing to them. Dylan and Cole signed with Disney every year or even 6 months. It is different. The Jonas’ were so in debt when they got to Hollywood saying No to money would be a lot harder than Dylan and Cole who came from a well-to-do family and had a stash of cash from previous employers.

      • Anna

        I agree with this! Why I think what Dylan said was fine, the two were in to different relms of disney. It is a bit unfair for Dylan to go all judgey on Joe when he was never put in the same position. Recording contracts can get you in a lot of legal trouble if you break them and with acting it is a lot easier to say no and not get sued. I don’t think Dylan understands this or he would have probably not been so harsh on Joe. I like Dylan and I think it is GREAT he is going to college, but for some people saying no isn’t that easy. I don’t think anyone on here truly understands what could have happened to the Jonas Brothers if they said no. I actually applaud joe for being honest and if no one else does than that is their problem.

      • JJ456

        True. The Jonas brothers were a world wide phenomena. They were looked & talked about all over the world. Dylan never had to experience it. Even these days, how many items we are getting on Joe and every walk he takes? how many items we got on Dylan?

  • pily

    I think both carrers were totally different becouse even if you want to believe it or not joe’s carrer as a jonas was bigger than dylans and he was more famous than him (couse dylan is only now for his role on z&c) and i think joe has even more presure than dylan and obviusly disney was more into he and his brothers, and well, it isn’t like you can say not to disney everytime you want becouse they will say no to you :/

  • just saying practically

    This may be true. However, Dylan and Cole came from a rich family that had little sacrifice for them to enter the business. The boys were hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt when the Disney came along. They had to do what they said for survival. Also, Dylan and Cole have not worked in the business for years. You will also probably never see them really in the spot light again. The Jonas boys will continue to work in the business and make money. They are more wealthy than Cole and Dylan. Also, their art was not effected by Disney in the sense that all of the music was still theirs. Yes, they did a stupid kid show, but what was the “Suite Life.” There is also a stark difference from acting versus music. The Jonas Brothers (individually or together) will always have careers. Dylan and Cole will not. The Jonas Brothers got out from Disney. I think that was a great decision because now they had the power (monetarily and age) to leave. You cannot say this is true for other people in this position. Usually, if people leave, their careers plummet. The boys racked in $1000s if not $1000000s this year through concerts and sales especially overseas. Dylan and Cole are still just living off of what they made on Suite life. The Jonas’ made the better decision. To stay in just long enough

    • Dash

      Dylan And Cole have worked in the business for years. They’ve worked in the business for so long in fact they started when they were both a year old. and then they were both in Big Daddy and did a couple here and there roles on TV shows until ultimately they landed Suit Life with Disney. So dismissing The sprouse brothers like they barely know the business is just pure ignorance. But I do agree, The Jonas Brothers were in debt and unfortunatly during this time I think “Papa” Jonas saw his own sons money making machines rather than family and I think while they were younger he also had a part in making those decisions.

      • JJ456

        And this is exactly what Dylan is missing. The Jobro had their greedy father, Dylan & Cole didn’t. I think this is the truth that Joe has yet to speak of.

  • pun intended

    this thread is smoking

  • Karla.L

    Well Said Cole Absolutely Agree With You As Far As Being A Fan I Followed A Hypocrisy Up To My Adult Hood And Am Highly Disappointed To Have Called Myself A Jonatic

    • me

      that’s Dylan, not cole

    • hop

      it is not hypocrisy. You are just stupid. They are employees. They had a uniform and code of conduct ilke any job except their jobs are also their lives. The music was theirs, the hugs, the singing, and their quirkiness. Those are the only things that matter. The music SHOULD be the only thing that mattered. The purity rings are REAL. Kevin waited. Joe waited for as long as he could (longer for most people). He is just saying they were not trying to preach it to others which Disney made them do. What is hypocritical? You really thought that a major brand would allow teenagers to do and say what ever they want. This is the way it is will all stars (especially child stars) on labels. Why was beiber so pure until 18? He admitted to being a regular teenager doing things that may not have been the best for him. Are you waiting until marriage, have you never touch alcohol, have you never smoked weed, have you never made a mistake a child and been forced to cover it up? No, I am a PK (preacher’s kid) as well. A double life is simple to us.

    Some of you aren’t very bright when it comes to show biz. There is this thing called “striking while the iron is hot”, meaning you would sell out yourself as much as possible while your popularity is still looming. That is what the Jonas Brothers did, they sold their souls for fame and money – the dolls, the tours, the books, the pr girlfriends, the ass-kissing, the television show, putting out too many albums in a short time span… It’s quite disgusting actually. I knew that purity ring thing was utter bullshit a long time ago. It became clear to me that they are greedy people willing to do anything for fame.

    Dylan and Cole are being smart. Go to college. Honestly, find something you love and go at it. That’s what I’m doing right now. They did their show and now they’re going about their lives. They didn’t exploit their fame for more money. They acted, but they were sensible enough not to sell their souls. Who cares if the Jonas Brothers are wealthier in the long term? Art is not about the money, it’s about the passion, the work… Joe made himself look like an idiot. And I found the name dropping absolutely disgusting. Let’s be real, Dylan and Cole will have better lives in the long term.

    • Cici

      The brothers were young & doing what they thought they had to do. Along with many of the other disney stars. I do not think they deserve any blame for halfway being brain washed..their parents on the other hand should have stepped in more & kept them from getting into deep.

      • Emmy

        They didn’t have to do anything! See, that’s the essential problem. I don’t blame them entirely because I think their parents had a huge hand in exploiting them. I think 2008 was a critical year for the JoBros. At that point, they could’ve controlled their destiny. They were at the top of their success with A Little Bit Longer which was a good album. They should’ve taken a break at that exact moment. However, they got greedy and they chugged out more and that’s when it started going downhill. They had control at that point.

        • Cici

          I dont think they had complete control until they left disney. They obviously wanted to do what they did, I mean who would say no to earning more fame & fortune? At the time it seemed great for them. Joe was just making the point that they had to hide who they really were & hide the fact that they were normal & could not express themselves without the consequences from Disney

    • Anna

      The Jonas brothers were broke and in debt when they went in to disney. Please don’t tell us we know nothing, when obviously you don’t. Like I said in a previous comment, the Jonas brothers could have been sued by Disney if they broke their recording contract. Maybe they did sell their souls, but they needed the money at the time so I don’t think you’re being fare. Recording contracts are something you don’t mess around with, they usually have strict rules and guidelines plus a certain amount of time they have to be signed for. They couldn’t just say no to their record company, they would have possibly ruined their careers and been in a lot of trouble. They aren’t bad people for doing what they did. You know nothing about fame if you assume that is all so easy to say no.
      As for Dylan and Cole, I think it is great that they are going to college and being normal. However, they were never that famous to begin with so it was probably very easy for them to get out of the business. It wasn’t easy for the Jonas brothers, but they did do it.

  • Cici

    I’m ready for the Sprouse take over when they are done with college. It’s going to be great!

    • jbtr

      they won’t they are too anti-the-establishment and have made a lot of enemies in the business. You will here Jonas like Hanson 10 years from now. Not them, they are not even great actors like Mary Kate and Ashley. T

      • sonny

        I think Dylan would probably go back to acting maybe in 10 years (since he’s way better actor than Cole), and I think Dylan is way more level headed and humble than his twin. I think Cole is a little crazy right now.

      • RegReach

        You think MK&A are great actors…..

        anyway cole will be back acting i know it
        they need to go through a pysical transformation and loos the young boy look

  • amy

    I think everyone is giving Dylan too much praise. Yes he has a valid point that they could have said no, but I think he fails to recognize how much every Disney star stands to lose if they say no. If you don’t do what Disney says you lose their promotion or your entire job for that matter. The Jonas Brothers could have said no, but they were afraid that they would loose everything. Also, everyone is ignoring the fact that Dylan and Cole have bitched about Disney in the past.

  • —–

    I don’t think Joe was really trying to make it as a “boo hoo” feel sorry for us kind of thing. I think he just wanted to let everybody know the reality of what went on behind the scenes for THEM, because although Dylan and Cole were with the same company they were doing a completely different thing. Disney took a risk by signing the Jonas Brothers because they had never really stepped in to having a band or any artist under them without them having a show. of course Hillary Duff was big before but she was on Lizzie Mcguire and this was during the time Miley Cyrus was starting to take off but she also had Hannah Montana.
    The Jonas Brothers didnt have that so Disney tried to promote them in the best way they could by adding them on to things like making a song for a movie and showing their music videos and then putting them on the tour with Miley. Of course they could have said no to some of the things that disney was trying to do like saying that some of their lyrics were “risky” but I think the Jonas Brothers were scared because all they had at first was the music they couldn’t be like “okay they want us to change that, well lets just say no because we have our own show and a big following etc.” because in reality they had none of that at first and I think they just wanted to be on Disney’s good side and after they started getting big they got used to the way that things were without speaking up.

    Someone mentioned it but I do think that their dad was a bit controlling and tried to live through his sons. He stopped his other jobs to “support” them when really he stopped and became their manager because he saw dollar signs. it’s such a shame when young stars have parents that can’t see the fine line between business and family.

  • queenofshade

    I thought that was the whole point in joe’s interview though? to lay out the truth. sure, he didn’t spell it out for us that he stayed for the money and regretted it but I thought he made it obvious.

  • BangBang

    My personal creed? “Fool me once, you’ll forever regret that decision.” Yes Dylan! Tell’em

  • LJ02

    Maybe Dylan is just upset because he, too, realized it was Brenda that Joe was hooking up with in her car! :-O

    • JJ456

      It seems that Brenda is Disney’s mattress. Dylan, Joe, Miley’s brother…she did them all.

  • RegReach

    That dere NYU edumacation seems to be holdin up

  • JJ456

    Nude pics of Dylan showed up on the internet. I hope somewhere in LA, Joe Jonas points & laugh. Who is the stupid one now, lol….

  • Tricia Daley

    Their a big difference here and I really don`t think Dylan know what he talking about I mean look at it this way the Jonas Brother were way bigger then Dylan and Cole ever were so just because Dylan and Cole were not treat the way Joe said does not mean the Jonas Brother were not Dylan and Cole had a 2 Disney TV Show that is it they did not do much else for Disney so of course Disney really would not need to control what they do much . but the Jonas Brother were a band as well as having a TV show and Two Disney movies at the time of there fame The Jonas Brother were a big part of Disney music so Disney trying to control everything they did seem kind of true
