ET caught up with Joe and his DNCE band members at the TIDAL x 1015 pre-show on Saturday in Brooklyn, New York, where the middle JoBro responded to the fuss made over his Reddit AMA last week.
The "Body Moves" singer caused a stir last week when he candidly revealed that he lost his virginity to a girl named Ashley, noting, "You can probably just Google it. It's pretty easy to figure out." That statement elicited an Instagram post from his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Greene, that has been interpreted as straight up shade. So what made him open up about such a private moment?
"I don't know. I think life's too short, you know?" the 27-year-old singer told ET. "I mean ultimately, I think of myself as an honest guy. There are just those moments in life where you have to be true to yourself and true to the world."
"I'm not out to hurt anybody, but I think, ultimately, I'm just telling my stories and what I can say from my heart," he added.
The TIDAL X 1015 concert was held to raise money for the Robin Hood Foundation, which aims to end poverty in New York City, and was a star-studded event. DNCE was pretty excited for three acts in particular: Beyoncé (obviously), Blood Orange and, apparently, Air Bud. That Joe, always joking!
DNCE's self-titled album drops on November 18th. Meanwhile, their steamy NSFW-ish video for "Body Moves" was released earlier this month and features a shirtless Joe and lingerie-clad Baywatch babe, Charlotte McKinney. Watch more in the video below.
