Joe Jonas spoke openly about how the public’s view of Disney has evolved over time.
When the singer used to work on the station, he said there was a lot of negativity attached to it.
Joe recently explained to GQ how Disney is now offering a forum for aspiring superstars.
“I don’t think working with [Disney] has the stigma that it did in our day, thankfully. I think it’s wonderful what’s happening with Olivia Rodrigo and others who have been launched on programs that are targeted towards teenagers but are still being taken seriously,”
the singer said.
“I think one of the biggest misconceptions about [the Jonas Brothers] in the early days was that, first of all, it was manufactured, which is just impossible because, well, we’re brothers.
“The second was that the music we released as the Jonas Brothers was manufactured in some ways. It truly wasn’t.”
Joe rose to prominence after co-starring in their own series with brothers Kevin and Nick, as well as in the Disney films Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.
