The news about this war of breakup ballads started making rounds after Joe Jonas spoke to the New York Daily News about his new album. The singer said, "I think all artists have a right to write about what happens to them. I have a right to write about things too."
Joe Jonas did not tell it directly that he would dish on Swift, whom he dumped in 2008. But he admitted that at least one song would address 'hurting somebody and feeling bad about it'. The album will also focus on "different love scenarios that I've been through, breakups, hurts. I think there's a lot of scenarios where people might wanna hear my side of the story," he told the magazine.
