Joe Jonas Talks Sex, Drugs and Celeb Relationships
Former Disney star has dated Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene...
Among the revelations, 24-year-old Joe admitted to romancing fans, dating “a lot” and ditching the purity rings the Jonas Brotherswere famous for: “We decided to take the rings off a few years ago. I lost my virginity when I was 20.”
Joe was also happy to talk about his high-profile relationships with Demi Lovatoand Ashley Greene: “it felt special to date someone who was also famous,” he explained. While Ashley was Joe’s “first serious relationship”, his fling with Demi was short-lived.
“I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help,” he said of his time with Demi. “I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse.” The middle JoBro claims it was Demi – along with fellow Disney star Miley Cyrus – who introduced him to marijuana.
“The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. They kept saying, “Try it! Try it!” so I gave it a shot,” he revealed, also confessing he was caught drinking at the age of 16.
Joe also touched on the disagreement he had with his record company over his last solo album – “They wanted me to be this Justin Timberlake clone” – and explained that the Jonas Brothers’ break-up “was going on for a lot longer than a lot of people thought.”
While he wanted “sexier” music videos, newly-wed Kevin Jonas wasn’t happy with going in a racier direction. “The whole situation was breaking us up as a family, and we ultimately felt like we were holding each other back,” Joe summed up.
