Joe Jonas weighs in on Justin Biebers legal troubles in the new issue of Scene.

The former Jonas Brother shares, “I’ve had an easier route than most. The youngsters just turning 20, the Biebers of the world, are under a microscope.”

Jonas says that Bieber is “having a very tough time finding balance,” adding, “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.”

The singer goes on to talk about his new solo album, revealing, “I’m trying to [make it] something that I really want it to be — do music that I’m really proud of and not let too many cooks in the kitchen.”

Jonas offers, “There are always stereotypes when people think of a band, any artist, that they’re going to sound like a certain thing. [I hope that] when I hit the reset button and release new music, fresh ears will listen open-minded and not judge.”
