Is Joe Jonas Apologizing To Demi Lovato In His New Song, 'I'm Sorry'?

Thu, June 16, 2011 8:56pm EDT by 154 Comments

Joe Jonas says his new song, “I’m Sorry,” is about one of his relationships. Is he finally apologizing to Demi Lovato, or is it an ode to one of his other celebrity girlfriends?

We all know Joe Jonas isn’t exactly going to win the “Best Boyfriend” award. From Taylor Swift to Ashley Greene, Joe has famously fallen out of love just as quickly as he falls in. The notorious play boy says he’s about to apologize to one of his sweethearts in his new song, “I’m Sorry” — but will it be about the one girl he hurt the most?

“‘I’m Sorry’ is really honest,” Joe, 21, told E! Online’s Marc Malkin June 16. “It’s saying, I screwed up. I didn’t cheat on the person, but just I messed up and I wanted the person back. I’m just putting it all on the table saying, ‘I’m sorry. I wish I could have you back.'”

Joe dramatically dumped his girlfriend, former best friend and co-star, Demi Lovato, last year, only to join her on tour months later and bring along his new girlfriend, Ashley Greene. Demi, 18, subsequently, suffered from a breakdown, quit the tour and shipped off to treatment in Chicago for “emotional and physical issues.” Although Joe didn’t technically do anything wrong, it’s widely presumed he played some role in Demi’s problems.

“Those kind of songs are really hard because you know that person is going to hear it,” he said. “[But] I’ve never really reached out to somebody about a song. I feel every artist is entitled to write honestly. So I’ve never reached out to them unless they reached out to me.”

Out of all the girls he’s dated, I think Joe owes Demi an apology most. She was more than just a random girl he dated — she was a family friend, a co-worker and most importantly, she considered him one of her best friends. Even if he didn’t actually cheat on her with Ashley, he disrespected her by flaunting his new girlfriend in Demi’s face while they were on tour. It was insensitive and rude!

Hopefully we’ll hear “I’m Sorry” soon — but regardless, it will be on Joe’s first solo album, which is set to drop Sept. 6. Are YOU excited to hear it?

I honestly believe that it is for Demi. I mean he wrote Much Better for Taylor which means its not her. Camilla ya he was hurt but no. With Ashley he broke up with her because of his busy schedule so she’s out too. He DEFINITELY owes Demi an apology he didn’t just lose a girlfriend, he lost a best friend. <3

A insider have told that Joe only was together with Demi to promote thère new Movie “Camp Rock 2″ and because Demi Got so pissed of Ashley, Joe and his dad told Demi, and that was what really broke her.
But i Think the most evil thing hé did, was hé also stopped her friendship with her other Best friend Nick. They can’t be together now, because of Joe.

I am 100% positive, I’m Sorry is for NO ONE! It’s just a song with deep lyrics, it’s not really meant for anyone, do you think every deep song is meant for someone, think again! He said the song is about saying he screwed up and wanted the person back, that’s the description of the song, what the story of the song is, not that it happened in real, every song has a story, well some, because the song these days make no sense. Did he say “I wrote this song for one of my ex-gf and i screwed up, i didn’t cheat and i want her back, I’m sorry, I wish I could have you back” in exact words, I haven’t heard the interview. I would say it’s a publicity stunt.
Joe clearly goes looking for love, you don’t look for love, you fall in love. I think she’s beautiful, lemme date her. Uh I don’t really like her too much. *DUMP* Byeee, Movin’ On!
He’ll find his princess some day.

he said himself that he was apologizing to one of his former girlfriends. I guess you missed that part in the article ? ” The notorious play boy says he’s about to apologize to one of his sweethearts in his new song, “I’m Sorry” — but will it be about the one girl he hurt the most?”

I agree that Demi deserves an apology the most but the sing is for someone he wants back. He said he broke up with Demi because he thought they should just be friends. I don’t think he wants too get back together. He broke up with Ashley Greene because of busy schedules. Not his fault and she’s been seen with other guys. Camillia Belle broke up with him and might of cheated. My guess is the song is for Taylor Swift or someone else. Maybe a secret or less know relationship?

this is about Demi.. Taylor is not the kind of person joe would want to apologize to. he didnt diss taylor… demi on the other was his best friend for years and he was very insensitive to her. she’s not even immature like taylor to try and slam him abt it. she deserves an apology and the entire Jonas clan whos… so, i will bet $1000 that it for Demi!

I do believe that this song is about Demi.
Demi had a bigger role in Joe’s life. She was his best friend for almost 4 years. Taylor was a summer fling.
Around the time Joe wrote this song, It was directly after his break up with Demi. Yes, he was with Ashley, but that doesn’t take away the feeling of losing a best friend who was always there for you during the highs and lows.

The possible reason he said “I never cheated on anyone,” could be due to the rumors earlier last year where Joe was cheating on Demi with Ashley Greene.
In the song, he states that he “used” the girl [whomever the song is about].

Now, we don’t know what really happened behind closed doors. For all we know, it could have been anyone. He could have used one of the lovely ladies to make himself feel better.

So in conclusion, Joe is a douche who uses situations to his advantage not much different from Taylor Swift. His daddy is his biggest supporter and enabler in his douchebaggery ways.

It’s not like he goes and posts videos ripping people’s heads off of a doll…. so not quiet like Taylor who also puts the guys’ names in the songs. I think he may have written a blog, but it was taken down hours or days later, if I remember correctly.
Joe, nick, or Kevin have never put a person’s name in a song or out right said who it was about. Yes, Much Better was probably about Taylor, but she did deserve it and it wasn’t really rude imo. It was just a song, just like she wrote a song about him.
The best musician or screenwriter writes about what they know. Musicians often know best what they went through, including relationships. Songs are almost like closure. It’s the last word.
And even the songs that he does write about people, they aren’t rude songs like Taylors are sometimes (or depressing), imo.

his dad is a minister. he would not support that. JJ is not a douche, he prob just has some.. problems going on in his life. obviously he just needs to slow down and stop looking for the right one, and then she will come along. we all want to find love, the celebrities too.

It’s funny how Taylor and Demi fans care so much about who this song is about and think they know the inner and out of each relationship. I will say this though, about Jaylor, when Joe dumped her he dated someone else [Camilla] immediately after and didn’t seem like he wanted Taylor back in his life as he wrote Much Better [She deserved it imo] for her. After Camilla broke up with him he was heartbroken but he didnt seem like he wanted Taylor back either as he made fun of her back in Nov 2009 in Europe while singing Much Better. Later on he reconnected with Taylor in Jan. When he wrote I’m Sorry it was around the time he was dating Ashley he wrote it with Rob. He said about a month ago that at the time he wrote this song he wanted that person bak in his life so it wouldn’t make sense that he wrote it thinking of Taylor because he was already on good terms with her and the way he spoke of the song seemed like he was on bad terms with that person while writing it. Maybe this is publicity, that or this song is about Demi but the last bit throws me off from it being about Demi because of the cont

“I didn’t cheat on the person” Taylor claimed Joe cheated on her/left her for Camilla.
“So I’ve never reached out to them unless they reached out to me” Taylor has written COUNTLESS songs about him, basically reaching out to him through music.
I DEFINITELY think I’m Sorry is about Taylor, I hope so anyway. But Demi was one of his closest friends for years.. I think both Demi and Taylor deserve an huge apology.
