Demi Lovato has revealed more of her opinion concerning Joe Jonas' revealing essay written for Vulture. Speaking at a celebration event for NYLON magazine's December issue in West Hollywood on Thursday, December 5, the former Disney star said that she was not mad at Joe for talking about her past drug problem and they would stay close.
Speaking to E! News, the coach on "The X Factor (US)" said with a laugh, "Well, first I was like, 'Umm, we need to talk,' and then we talked and I was fine. I was like, 'Look, I'm not mad at you but you need to choose your words more carefully next time.' "
"They're my brothers, I love them so much. Joe and I argue like brother and sister and [he's] always going to be in my life. He meant no harm and he's never had a chance to tell his side of the story so I'm proud of him," she continued. However, there is a chance that Demi will speak of him in her upcoming memorial. "I also said beware because I'm writing my tell-all now. I have a memoir coming out probably next year, I don't know, whenever it's done!"
The former boybander, meanwhile, stated that he did not mean to hurt anyone with the piece and had told his family and close friends before its release. "It was just something that is my story and my life and nothing that I necessarily felt like I could talk about before and it felt like the right timing and I just decided I would tell it all," he said.
"I had the opportunity to talk with Demi beforehand and a few other people in my family and obviously something like this is going to be jarring but Demi and I have a really strong friendship and I would obviously never want to hurt her," he continued.
Joe additionally told Us Magazine that he met Demi the day before the event. When asked if they were still friends, the former Jonas Brothers member answered, "Yeah absolutely! I saw her yesterday. Demi and I are good friends and we have been friends for years." The 24-year-old singer also said that he was "relieved" after sharing his side of story.
