Diplo’s Feud With The Jonas Brothers Over The IG Hack Was PR Stunt For “Lonely” Collaboration
How dare The Jonas Brothers and Diplo tease us like this? Yesterday, the JoBros’ Instagram account was up in flames — there were memes, a bald Joe Jonas, and an assertation that Dylan and Cole Sprouse was the only Disney Channel brothers who “matter.”
Joe posted texts that he allegedly sent to Diplo telling him that it wasn’t funny anymore, and Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas echoed their brother’s annoyance. Nick commented, “Seriously call me … this isn’t funny.” Kevin said, “Wtf @diplo. It was funny for like one post but we’ve got a show tonight and need the account back…”
Diplo claimed Joe gave him the password, Joe denied it and the feud seemed to be heating up after the DJ claimed he blocked Joe’s phone number.
But turns out (as a few Jonas stans predicted), it was all just a PR stunt for a new collaboration coming at midnight called “Lonely.” It’s not all that surprising that Diplo would take a joke too far, though. After all, Joe said he “ruined” his Las Vegas wedding to Sophie Turner when he livestreamed it for the world to see. (Diplo didn’t realize the marriage was going to be legit.)
The snippet for the track sounds bomb and we see all the brothers checking their phone, and Diplo checking his phone wearing a cowboy hat and riding a horse. What a weird dude. Less than 12 hours to wait before “Lonely” is here. Thank God the Jonas Brothers are back, we missed them so much.
