While Joe Jonas has had an interesting year of his own, he recently called out Justin Bieber's father for setting a bad example for his son. In an April 3 story by E! Online, the star gave his opinion on the current woes of Justin Bieber, and acknowledged the unique crossroads his own career is at.

During the interview Joe Jonas argued that his strong connections to his family had helped keep him out of trouble. While the star had an extremely public falling out with his brothers, it is true that he largely avoided legal woes. Interestingly, Joe Jonas goes on to claim that Justin Bieber’s dad’s habits of partying has setup the current legal woes for the megastar.

I've had an easier route than most. The youngsters just turning 20, the Biebers of the world, are under a microscope… [Justin Bieber] is having a very tough time finding balance. I think we all saw it coming. Your dad is your party animal—that's going to sum it up pretty quick. There's an equation for some sort of explosion." - Joe Jonas
