Everyone has embarrassing moments, even world famous pop stars like Joe Jonas. On 13 July, Jonas appeared on Australia's KIIS FM's "Will & Woody" radio show, where he was asked to tell a story "you have never told anyone." Jonas could have come up with something boring, but instead, he fully committed to the interview and revealed he once pooped his pants on stage during a concert.
He prefaced his story by sharing he and a group of friends were recently talking about the last time they had a poop-related incident. "I was with a few friends yesterday, and we were just talking about (how) there is a point in your life where, as an adult, you can remember the last time you sh*t your pants," he said. He went on to share that the last time it happened to him was four years ago, and in the most public forum imaginable: on stage.
"It's fresh, but I've been able to work through it, a lot of therapy," Jonas joked. The singer continued, "Let's just say it was a bad day to choose to wear white clothing. You think it might be a little toot, it might've been a little something else, a little something extra. So it was like a mid-wardrobe sh*t change during the set."
Even though Jonas's anecdote is the stuff of nightmares, his fans didn't appear to think anything about his mid-set clothes change. "If you go in the archives, there is a wardrobe change halfway through the show, and it was maybe a little bit like, 'Oh that was an interesting choice to change clothes that quickly,'" he said. "That's a story I've never told and also that's just real life."
At the time, his on stage stomach troubles were nerve-wracking, but Jonas now looks back on the incident with a sense of humour. "The whole time, I thought this is definitely, somebody is going to be able to see this and know what is happening, but it was all in my head," he added. "It wasn't as big of a deal as I thought. But such is life. It has happened to many artists. I feel like I've paid my dues, and I feel like I'm a part of some secret club now."
