Kevin Jonas knows a thing or two about how to properly handle boy band drama.
Hours before the Internet broke down due to the social media shade war between former One Direction bandmates Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson, former Jonas Brothers member Kevin Jonas appeared on Z100 and offered up what now appears to be some very fortuitous advice to Malik.
The eldest Jonas revealed that he completely understood why Malik would want to quit the worldwide phenomenon known as One Direction, but advised that Zayn might want to lay low for a little while.
“I also understand that in the midst of that intensity, he should go dark for a long time,” Jonas said.
To quote Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer: “Once again, things that could have been brought to my attention yesterday!”
“You’ve gotta go dark for at least, like, six weeks,” Jonas continued. “Because you gotta let it settle. You gotta let the dust clear. Because anything you do then will be scrutinized.”
Time will tell if Malik will heed KJ’s advice.
