Taylor Swift has laid out her side of the break-up with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas. First, she said he broke up with her via a 27-second phone call. Then she said that the reason they broke up is because Joe started dating actress Camilla Belle behind her back. Well, Joe Jonas can be silent no more. He hit up the official Jonas Brothers blog yesterday to defend himself and to make sure he wasn't losing any fans. First, he took on the cheating allegations. He said, "I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause our fans to think less of me." Then he tackled the issue of the phone call, "For those who have expressed concern over the '27-second' phone call: I called to discuss feelings with the other person. Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk. A phone call can be pretty short when someone else ends the call. The only difference in this conversation was that I shared something the other person did not want to hear. There were later attempts at communication that had no response." Joe finished up his blog with well-wishes for Taylor whom, as you may have noticed, he never mentioned by name. He said, "I wish the best for the other person but could not sit back any longer and leave our fans with a wrong impression of the truth."

Also on "Oprah" yesterday was Beyonce discussing marriage. There's a reason why she waited until she was 26 to marry Jay-Z. She says, "I really don't believe that you will love the same thing when you're 20 as you do at 30. Before the age of 25, I would never get married. I feel like you have to get to know yourself, know what you want, spend some time by yourself, and be proud of who you are before you can share that with someone else." Wise words from Mrs. Hova.
