    There's An Internet Theory That "Potential Breakup Song" Is About Joe Jonas And OMG

    EXCUSE ME???

    Surely you guys know Joe Jonas of Jonas Brothers fame? And you might recall AJ Michalka — rad rocker chick from the band Aly & AJ?

    Here is a picture of both of them circa 2007.

    I don't know about you, but I was a MASSIVE fan of both groups back in the late '00s, and literally *today* I just discovered this theory that YouTuber Elle Mills tweeted:

    ok so you’re telling me that i went 13 years not knowing that one of the greatest songs ever written was about joE JONAS THIS ENTIRE TIME

    Here's the song in case you haven't heard it, although you might be one of the 69 (heh heh) MILLION people who have already:

    It is a BOP and you cannot deny it.

    Now, there's nothing really ~out there~ that confirms this is true, but there is a lot of evidence. Allow me to continue.

    The first line in the song goes "It took too long for you to call back / And normally I would just forget that / Except for the fact it was my birthday." AND I GUESS AJ confirmed in a Reddit thread that, when she was 16 years old, she mailed Joe a piece of her birthday cake to make him feel bad.

    Other Twitter users were quick to point out that this wasn't the only song that was inspired by Joe Jonas...

    @millselle He’s also responsible for this bop

    And other people who were clearly informed about this were quick to provide additional details:

    @millselle I’m surprised you didn’t remember this or that AJ had a custom-bedazzled picture frame on her bedside table with a photo of them on a date at Six Flags two months after they started dating. It’s like you didn’t even READ Tiger Beat magazine

    Anyway, I know it's just a theory, but there's definitely a chance the song is POSSIBLY about him, as evidenced by this Tumblr blog. But I must say...I for one am SHOCKED to learn they dated in the first place.
