When pretty-boy Joe Jonas dumped Taylor Swift on the telephone, the blonde songstress scheduled a last minute recording session to get a much-publicized heartbreak ballad, Forever & Always, on her 2008 album, Fearless: "Was I out of line? Did I say something way too honest / That made you run and hide like a scared little boy?…'Cause I was there when you said forever and always / You didn't mean it, baby, you said forever and always." Searing! She spilled her heart about the breakup all over the air waves, and told girls to stay away from Joe Jonas—not very persuasively, I'm sure.
It didn't help that Joe decided to follow up her revenge song with his own breakup melody, Much Better, on the Jonas Brothers' Lines, Vines & Trying Times album, which was basically a press release about how he had a new, better girlfriend: "I got a rep for breaking hearts / Now I'm done with superstars / And all the tears on her guitar I'm not bitter / Now I see everything I'd ever need It's the girl in front of me / She's much better." Pure class.
Anyway, now Joe Jonas is crawling back, hoping to collaborate on a duet with his long-lost flame: “I think there’s a great opportunity for that to happen… We’re friendly, we’re not enemies. People like to think that once you’ve dated, that’s it and you can never be friends again. They see it in a very black and white way. But there’s a middle-ground in that situation." Translation? He likes her, he really loves her, he wants to marry her, he thinks she's gorgeous, he wants to kiss her, he wants to hug her, he wants to love her, he wants to hug her, he wants to smooch her. Taylor – RESIST!
[Editor's note: Or, translation: her career is hotter than hot right now and his isn't.]
