Joe Jonas caused a good deal of controversy yesterday, when New York magazine posted a new interview in which he trash talked Disney, his brothers, and other Disney stars like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. It was only a matter of time before one of them responded, and Dylan Sprouse is the first at bat.
Dylan posted a response on his Tumblr, and he gets right at Joe. “First, I think it’s bullsh*t that they were being robbed of choice or creativity,” Dylan wrote. “If they wanted too, they could have told Disney ‘NO’. Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right.” Interesting! And kind of adorable, the idea of those little blonde twins saying no to Disney execs. He went on, “The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame.” Shots fired, JoBros.
But it doesn’t end there! Dylan also opined on the process of fame. “Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a ‘rigid structure to achievement’,” he wrote. “If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST.” Interesting! We’re still ready for responses from Demi and Miley…
