With a tell-all like that, of course he'd get mixed reactions!
But now, Joe has responded to those positive and negative reactions from people who've read his candid essay.
"I've heard quite a few positive reactions and a couple negative. But for me, it's fine.
I wrote this for myself and put it out there so people could kind of get a picture, a little bit more of a picture of what my life was like.”
It doesn't get any classier than that!
We're glad Joe respects everyone else's opinion, but at the end of the day, the popstar said what he felt like he needed to say and that's that!
He can't take back all those outspoken words and stories of his!
