Joe Jonas talks sex, smoking 'weed' with Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato
Joe Jonas let loose in a new essay where he discussed losing his virginity, the pressure of being a Disney star, his band breaking up and smoking "weed" with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.
The essay, which is featured in New York Magazine (Warning: article contains expletive language), is titled "Joe Jonas: My Life as a Jonas Brother."
Jonas started off the essay talking about growing up the son of a pastor, feeling pressure, even then, to be a role model and how his views on religion have changed as he has gotten older.
He later addressed his relationship with Lovato as well as the incident that led her to check into rehab. Jonas also claims that it was Lovato and fellow Disney star Cyrus who got him to try smoking marijuana.
"The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18," the 24-year-old singer told the magazine. "They kept saying, 'Try it! Try it!' so I gave it a shot, and it was all right. I don't even smoke weed that often anymore."
Cyrus and Lovato have not commented publicly on his remarks.
The singer also talked about the infamous promise rings he and his brothers used to wear. According to Jonas, he and his brother Kevin joined a program called True Love Waits when he was about 10 or 11 years old and Nick tried it later.
"We decided to take the rings off a few years ago. I lost my virginity when I was 20," Joe said. "I did other stuff before then, but I was sexually active at 20. I'm glad I waited for the right person, because you look back and you go, 'That girl was [expletive] crazy. I'm glad I didn't go there."
Joe also talked about why the brothers decided to break up their band and cancel their tour in October. He went into more detail about how the conversation came about. The brothers appeared on "Good Morning America" to explain their break up in late October.
"I think in a nutshell, I said, 'Look, I feel like we've had some complications within the group for a long time without addressing them. I think this train will fall off the tracks without really getting real about some of the concerns and some of the limitations that we may feel as individuals in the group,'" Nick said on "Good Morning America" at the time. "It was a tough conversation."
