Joe Jonas On Justin Bieber: 'We All Saw It Coming'

Joe Jonas thinks Justin Beiber’s recent troubles (an arrest, a feud with a neighbors, lawsuits, urinating in a bucket in a restaurant, etc.) were to be expected.

The former teen singer, now 24, opened up to Scene magazine about the difficulty of maintaining a normal life while living in spotlight and called about Justin.

“I’ve had an easier route than most. The youngsters just turning 20, the Biebers of the world, are under a microscope,” Joe told the mag.

According to Joe, Bieber’s issues stem from the Canadian singer’s dad.

“[Bieber] 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,” Joe continued.

Adding, “There’s an equation for some sort of explosion.”

This is not the first time Joe has taken a swipe at Justin. Back in 2013, Joe chimed in on Justin’s peeing-in-the-bucket-while-berating-President-Clinton incident.

“We’re not perfect. I think there’s things that public people don’t know about. Now it’s not that easy for people to get away with a lot of stuff without people finding out, right? …But also we never really had the interest in doing things like peeing in buckets. We try to be careful,” he told MuchMusic back in June.
