Joe Jonas Couldn't Write the Songs He Wanted While in the Jonas Brothers

Joe Jonas shows some skin in a muscle tee for his spread in Notion Magazine issue 74, available now.

The 27-year-old musician opened up about writing music while in the Jonas Brothers, touring with DNCE and the funny way he got caught watching inappropriate videos online.

On how touring with DNCE is different than Jonas Brothers tours: “Now being older, there’s new experiences that I get to have, or just as an adult, like touring and travelling…you go out for a few drinks after the show. That’s just so different already than what I am used to – getting on the tour bus and going to bed or watching a movie. It was all exciting and good but these experiences now, on my own, on the road, its really great.”

On getting caught watching inappropriate videos online for the first time: “I would use my address to log into the websites, and I did this for seven days straight. A month later – and by the way, my dad was a pastor at the time – for a week or two straight there was a postcard with a naked woman on it saying ‘Come join us again Joe‘ or ‘We really miss you’ or ‘You naughty boy, come visit us again.’”

On how the Jonas Brothers music was filtered: “Hollywood Records were under Disney…and obviously just the age we were, we had to be careful with the certain things we wrote and said…We couldn’t be too sexual or romantic in certain ways. And that’s tough because at the same time you’re growing up and you want to write about these experiences you’re having as a young adult.”
