Therapy is a wonderful, powerful tool. Without it, Joe Jonas may not have ever found the strength to wear white pants again. It’s often about processing and digesting the past, then letting it go. Jonas knows.
In an interview published Friday on the Will & Woody podcast, the Jonas Brothers band member shared something of a trauma dump when prompted to share a story from his life that he’d never told in the press. Without hesitation, the 33-year-old father of two, pulled a tale from the bowels of his memory.
“There’s a point in your life where, as an adult, you can remember the last time you shit your pants,” he said. Then he revealed that “about four years ago,” he suffered a bit of a wardrobe malfunction while on stage, something he’s dealt with thanks to “a lot of therapy.”
“Let’s just say it was a bad day to choose to wear white clothing,” he said of the incident. “You think it might be a little toot, it might have been a little something else, a little something extra. So it was like a mid-wardrobe shit change during the set.”
He clarified that “it wasn’t as big a deal as I thought,” though at the time he worried that fans would notice what sounded like an unplanned trumpet solo.
“Such is life,” he said, revealing that he feels a kinship with others who have suffered the same fate. “It’s happened to many artists. I feel like I’ve paid my dues and I’m part of some secret club now.”
