“You’d think they’re siblings, sometimes more than Nick and I. They pick on each other, they play games… Demi’s a great listener, and she keeps Nick smiling — she’ll always make a serious situation laughable. So, they’ve found great support with one another and they lean on each other creatively. Nick’s evolved so much as a writer. Demi’s voice is stronger than ever. It’s difficult to take a backseat and say, ‘Let’s work together and figure out something great.’ I commend them both for that,” Joe, 26, told Billboard.
Joe also commented on being the subject of “Gonna Get Caught” from when they were dating.
“I was oblivious to that until I was asked to step out of a songwriting session or two, then it started to be a little clearer what this was about. [Laughs] We’ve seen each other go through tough times, good times, in and out of relationships. It’s funny to think back on that now. It feels like we were children, although I guess we were. She is like a sister to both of us, and it’s great to know we all have that support. It’s like, it doesn’t matter what comes our way. We’re going to be able to make it through,” Joe said. On her struggles, he added, “She’s the best version of herself I’ve ever known. She’s healthy and that’s obviously something a lot of the world knows now, but she’s gotten over [the really hard part].”
