The Jonas Brothers may be totally straight (allegedly), but that isn’t stopping them from trying to claw each other’s eyes out. In fact, things have gotten so bad that they’ve canceled their upcoming 19-city tour just two days before it was set to begin.
Their spokesman, Jesse Derris, told People:
“There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big a disagreement over their music direction. [Their future] remains to be seen.”
Pretty detailed stuff for an official statement — usually hired mouthpieces just go with the standard “creative differences” and leave it at that.
TMZ‘s sources say the problems stem from the fact that “each brother had a different vision of where they wanted to take the band, ranging from pop to hard rock,” so “releasing anything new would be a disaster, because the style would be all over the place.” Seems like something they’d have discussed before now, but whatever.
Bottom line is there are a lot of reeeally pissed off people (in several languages, even) over on the guys’ Facebook page right now. It’s almost enough to make you wish Justin Bieber was part of a dysfunctional trio.
