At Whit's End: Take that, Joe
By Whitney Schulte
November 14, 2008 | We all know millions of teen girls
all over the country are "in love" with the unstoppable
trio The Jonas Brothers. Well ladies, Joe Jonas was
back on the market for a split second, amid a slew of
drama from his ex.
Joe Jonas and country crooner Taylor Swift dated only
for a few months, and split in early October. Almost
one month later, Swift
cannot let it go. But, Jonas reportedly broke up
with Swift via phone, (a 27-second phone call at that)
so who can blame her for being so upset?
The first we heard directly from either of the two
celeb teens was an entry Ms. Swift posted on her blog
in October. Swift said, "I just got back from a 5 show
run on the road. Now I'm sitting in my kitchen. . .
. on the counter. Eating cool whip. And trying to think
of things to do with my free time. Other than talking
to my cat and making playlists of sad songs. Sad songs
are awesome, by the way."
On a new video posted on Swift's MySpace on Nov. 11,
she holds up a Joe Jonas doll and says, "This one even
comes with a phone so he can break up with other dolls."
Clearly, someone is a little bitter about the way the
Now that Joe Jonas is dating actress Camilla Belle,
Swift found it only fair to take yet another jab at
the JoBro while walking
the red carpet for the 2008 Country Music Awards.
"They've been together since we broke up," Swift said."That's
why we broke up -- because he met her."
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is saying that Swift
is "treading dangerously close to Aniston territory."
(Sidenote: Aniston, not-so-affectionately referred to
by Hilton as MANiston, has been dubbed as VERY desperate
by the blogger.)
Joe Jonas released a statement through the Jonas
Brothers' official blog today saying, "I never cheated
on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to
assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply
not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe
the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly
saddened that anything would potentially cause you to
think less of me."
He also goes on to imply that the phone call Swift
keeps referring to was ended by the country cutie herself.
He says, "A phone call can be pretty short when someone
else ends the call. The only difference in this conversation
was that I shared something the other person did not
want to hear."
In true Taylor Swift fashion, she comes back at him
telling a reporter from Blender magazine, "I've
had a lot of guys complain about either things that
I say about them in songs or things I say about them
in the press. I think it's kinda fun to call out your
ex-boyfriends. Why do this if you're not going to get
the opportunity to always have the last word. It's so
Oh well, if Swift can't hang on to Joe Jonas himself,
at least she has one consolation prize. She is on track
to sell a projected 600,000 copies of her
just released sophomore album. That's almost 100,000
copies more than the Jonas Brothers' last album. Take
that, Joe Jonas!
