Joe Jonas Brothers’ Secrets Revealed

joe-jonas-vulturejoe-jonas-smoked-weed-miley-demiTHE FIRST TIME JOE JONAS SMOKED WEED WAS WITH DEMI AND MILEY!

Joe Jonas EXTREMELY long Vulture interview: To some extent, I was used to growing up in public. I was a pastor’s kid, so eyes were always on me, even then. I sat in the first pew of the church, and I had to wear a suit every Sunday, because my parents wanted me to be this role model that I didn’t always want to be. I preferred going to punk-rock shows in small venues in New Jersey, where we grew up, wearing my jean jacket and all my band pins.

That’s how I fell in love with music, how I became obsessed with it. I’d stand there, watching the singer running around the stage, owning the crowd. I didn’t even notice whatever else was happening onstage. All I could see was the singer.

But I had certain obligations at that age. If I ever didn’t want to go to church on Sunday, or when I was trying to figure out what religion I wanted to be, or trying to understand spirituality, I would always have to deal with knowing that people were looking up to me.

We eventually left our church, Assembly of God, when I was 14. A scandal had erupted involving stolen money, and it caused a big rift in the church. After that the concept of church really upset me for a long time. I mean, I believe in God, and that’s a personal relationship that I have, but I’m not religious in any way.

I went to school until about seventh grade, before my parents decided to homeschool us. I sucked at math. Was pretty good with science, and I was great at music class. Big surprise. Music was always in the house. Our dad could play just about anything, and we started picking up instruments ourselves. When Nick was 7, he began singing everywhere—in the house, in the hair salon even, which is where he was discovered.
We never really had an idea of making music together, but years later when Nick was working on his debut album, Nicholas Jonas, Kevin and I genuinely wanted to write with him. So we wrote a song together in the living room called “Please Be Mine,” which we thought would just be for Nick. But when our dad heard us, he said we should play it for David Massey, who was A&R-ing Nick’s project at the time. He had signed a lot of brother bands—Oasis, Good Charlotte—and when we went in and sang the song for him, he told us he wanted to sign us as a group.
We weren’t put together by some Svengali but were definitely thrown into it. Especially Nick, who was only 12 (I was 15 and Kevin was 17), and he had to make all these big decisions about whether he wanted to be in a band or work solo or work with his brothers. Luckily, he was cool with working with us.
It took about two years before we released our first record, It’s About Time, in 2006. We were working on it for so long, and our dad had to drive us to the recording studio in the city every day. I’ll never forget our first concert: We were named J3—and we hated the name. It felt like something a boy band would be called. I remember turning to my brothers before that show and saying, “Do you want our name to be J3 for the rest of our lives?” When we got onstage, I was the one to announce to the crowd, “Hey, we’re the Jonas Brothers.” Nice and simple.
For a few years, my two brothers, our father, our backup band, and I drove around in a van from city to city, playing any venue that would have us—schools, churches, bat mitzvahs—while our mother stayed at home to take care of our youngest brother, Frankie. Those early touring years were rough. We opened up for the Veronicas, who had a club crowd, and we had to prove to those crowds that we could really play. Show them that we’re real musicians. It was always a struggle because every single night we were walking into hate. Sometimes people flipped us off, threw water bottles at us.
Everything completely changed when Disney entered the picture. They were geared toward a younger market, and we had a younger audience, so we started doing some Disney concerts, Disney Christmas concerts, and Disney roller-coaster openings. Then we made a music video for a cover song that we initially didn’t want to do because we hadn’t written it, called “Year 3000,” exclusively for Disney, which led them to start playing the song on Radio Disney and the video on the Disney Channel. Before we knew it, our fan base had exploded.
We went from an opening act to headliners, first in half-theaters, then full theaters, then half-arenas to full arenas, all within a span of around six weeks. Playing the Texas state fair in 2007 was a turning point. There were 40,000 people, and we needed to get a helicopter in order to make it to the show because the traffic was so bad. I remember sitting in that helicopter, flying over all those cars, and thinking, This is really happening.
Disney is great at creating fame. They’ve done it with so many pop stars and young actors, from Hilary Duff to the High School Musical crew. Miley Cyrus played an already-famous pop star on a Disney show, Hannah Montana, and as we were starting to blow up, we got a boost by playing ourselves, as her favorite band on her own show. That was definitely our first major love shown by Disney, and I think it might have been a trial to see whether they should give us a show of our own, and they did. We got a sitcom called Jonas in which we played characters named Kevin, Joe, and Nick Lucas, members of an already-famous band.
But the thing about the show was that some of the writing on it was terrible. It just ended up being some weird slapstick humor that only a 10-year-old would laugh at. They took out the kissing scene that Nick had. I had to shave every day because they wanted me to pretend like I was 16 when I was 20 (when the show was done, I cut my hair off and grew as much of a beard as I could). We went along with it at the time, because we thought Disney was our only real shot, and we were terrified that it could all be taken away from us at any moment.
Being a part of a company like that comes with certain expectations. Not overtly, but there was a subtle vibe. We were working with Disney in 2007 when the Vanessa Hudgens nude-photo scandal happened. We heard that she had to be in the Disney offices for a whole day because they were trying to figure out how to keep her on lockdown. We’d hear execs talking about it, and they would tell us that they were so proud of us for not making the same mistakes, which made us feel like we couldn’t ever mess up. We didn’t want to disappoint anyone—our parents, our fans, our employers—so we put incredible pressure on ourselves, the kind of pressure that no teenager should be under.
We were just kids. That’s the reality. We were frightened little kids. So you got all this responsibility that’s foisted upon you and you’re expected to be perfect. I went through media training, and I hated it. They’d teach you how to change the subject, whenever you were asked an uncomfortable question, by saying something like, “Oh, that reminds me of my dog! I have a great story about my dog!” Playing dumb is the best way of getting out of anything. We also had a strategy for who would take which kinds of questions. If it was a serious question, Nick would answer it. If it was lighthearted, Kevin would. Nick and I took questions related to our music and explaining what certain songs meant. We even did a Good Housekeeping story with our mom where we were wearing these horrible pastels. It makes me cringe just to think about it.

Jonas with fans in London at the premiere of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience in 2009.
Disney made us more famous than we ever knew we could be. During concerts, when we’d want to play a new song or have an intimate moment, the screaming could be so overwhelming that we’d have to tell the crowd to calm down and enjoy the moment. It could get scary, too: We did a meet-and-greet in Spain, and like 100,000 people showed up and we ended up being chased through a shopping mall. It felt like a zombie apocalypse.
There were the moments when I’d walk into my hotel room only to find a girl I didn’t know standing there. For the record, we didn’t have the traditional rock-and-roll experience. We were kids working with Disney, so finding a girl in our hotel room didn’t feel like an open invitation. This isn’t 1986, and I’m not in a hair-metal band. It felt like a problem we had to solve without it getting us into trouble. There was this time in South America where a hotel staff member snuck his kid into my room. I don’t know what they were hoping would happen, but security showed her out.
People like to imagine what it would be like on a tour bus, and they’d ask us, “It must just be a party all the time!” And definitely whenever we were on-camera, we were perceived as smiling and happy and upbeat, but there were times when all I wanted to do was lie in bed.
The hard thing about dealing with out-of-control fans is that you don’t want to be the bad guy and you don’t want to disappoint them, but sometimes that ends up happening. There used to be this group of fans who liked to camp outside our apartments in New York, and about a year ago, one of them asked us for a photo in the morning, and I said hi to him, and later that night, he was outside a restaurant that we had gone to with some friends. That was not cool. It felt like he was following us. So we all got in the car and he runs up, yelling through the window, “Can I get your picture? Please please please?” I said, “Look, man, I’m usually nice to you about this, but we’re just having a night to ourselves, and if you can respect that, I’d really appreciate it.” He started bawling and ran off to his friends. Two days later, it’s in the tabloids that I was rude to a fan and made him cry and laughed in his face. It’s funny, because I greet a ton of fans, but the one I said no to ended up making news.
The topic that dominated news coverage of us for a long time was the whole promise-ring thing. We couldn’t escape it. It started when I was really young—I must have been 10 or 11. There’s a program people do in some churches called True Love Waits, where you wait for marriage to have sex. Kevin and I decided to join—Nick tried it later. Fast-forward a few years, we’ve started playing music and we’re working with Disney and we have these rings.
I remember this interview with this guy whose entire agenda was to focus on the rings. He kept pushing the subject, and when we insisted that we didn’t want to talk about it, he told us, “I can write whatever I want,” which terrified us. That’s the thing: We didn’t know any better, and we just wanted to make people happy. Now I know that I don’t have to answer any questions I don’t want to. Like, why do you even care about my 15-year-old brother’s sex life?
But back then, we explained that we had made these promises to ourselves when we were younger. A few months later, it comes out that we’re in some cult and that we’re these little staged Mickey Mouse kids. People were coming up to us, saying, “Thank you so much, I’m waiting because you guys are, too!” And we just thought, No! That’s not what we’re about.
Because of our age, because of Disney, because of those rings, there were so many things throughout our career that we had to sugarcoat. If a lyric was slightly sexual, someone at the record company would tell us we had to change it. It could be the most innocent reference, like “I’m alone in a room with you,” and it would have to go. It felt like we couldn’t be creative, so we stopped listening to them and just started handing shit in.
We decided to take the rings off a few years ago. I lost my virginity when I was 20. 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 batshit crazy. I’m glad I didn’t go there.”

The brothers in 2008.
What was that couple that was pretty famous from The Hills? Heidi and Spencer? I didn’t want to become Heidi and Spencer, so I kept relationships quiet. I lived in a bubble of just me, my brothers, my band, and the people I went on tour with. That’s how I ended up dating a lot of people in the business, because you relate to them, you’re on the same schedule, and honestly, it was exciting. In the back of my mind, it felt special to date someone who was also famous. But I wanted to keep things quiet out of respect for my fans, because we had a large female audience, and I didn’t want to rub my relationships in their faces. Some of the girls I dated just didn’t get that.
I genuinely don’t have any resentment against any of my exes. So I’m not going to disparage anyone I was in a relationship with—only I might put it in my music a little bit, and hint at it, and tease it here and there, just enough for the fans and the people who really know the story. But I’m not going to openly say, “Yeah, actually, this person is a bitch, and she did this to me.” I don’t feel the need to do that to sell records.
But I did date a lot. I used to sneak out and hook up with this one girl in her car, and some rumor came out along the lines of: “Teen pop star seen in the back of a car, in a parking lot, hooking up,” and the write-up was kind of explicit. I kept thinking, Oh my God, there’s going to be video, there’s going to be photos. The girl was also in the business, and we thought we were screwed because we were both working with Disney. It would have been the worst thing we could think of happening to us. But nothing ever came out!
One relationship that meant a lot to fans was the one I had with Demi Lovato, who I’ve known for years. We had been friends forever, we were both Disney kids, and because we played a couple in the Camp Rock Disney Channel specials—and fans liked seeing us together—we eventually dated for a month. I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn’t express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect.
It was an insane situation to be in. Things kept building up, and Demi ended up punching a girl in the face on a plane, because she thought the girl was blaming her for something. Everybody gasped, and the girl just started bleeding. That’s when her team and her family told her, “You need to go into rehab.” I remember being in South America, and fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that we kicked her off the 2010 tour, and they just hated on us for it.
Being a part of the Disney thing for so long will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever. Eventually, I hit a limit and thought, Screw all this, I’m just going to show people who I am. I think that happened to a lot of us. Disney kids are spunky in some way, and I think that’s why Disney hires them. “Look, he jumped up on the table!” Five, six, ten years later, they’re like, “Oh! What do we do?” Come on, guys. You did this to yourselves.
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, and it was all right. I don’t even smoke weed that often anymore. I was caught drinking when I was 16 or 17, and I thought the world was going to collapse. But I was in another country, and it was legal there. My 21st birthday, I fell down a flight of stairs. I was unconscious that time, and my whole team was scared to death that somebody was going to get a picture. Now I appreciate wine or a vodka-soda at the end of the day every once in a while.
When I was 20, I started dating Ashley Greene, and she was my first serious relationship. We were together for almost a year. I was living out in L.A. by myself, and at the end of the day, long distance didn’t work. It’s incredibly difficult. I did a cover story with Details acknowledging the relationship, and the day after it was on newsstands, we announced our breakup. That was just coincidence, but it’s funny how that always happens, right? After Ashley, I took two or three years to just be single. I was hooking up and having fun. Now I’m with someone I really care about. We get each other.
And, yes, I’ve dated fans. I can’t say that I’ve never put a foot in that world; there were times when I definitely took advantage of the opportunities I had. I remember I invited a fan to a movie, and we just made out the entire time. I don’t even remember what the movie was about. I must have been 16 or so. Afterward, I was kind of freaking out, because I thought she’d go public and the whole world would find out. Luckily, she never did, I think because she assumed there’d be another meet-up down the road.

Joe performing at the 2007 American Music Awards.
There were days when I wanted to give up sometimes. When it all felt too overwhelming and exhausting. But my brothers helped me get through a lot. I mean, we’ve only canceled two or three shows in our entire career. There were times when we definitely performed while sick because there was so much riding on it. All we’d have to do when one of us wasn’t feeling well was say, “I need you to take this chorus.” There was never even a question. It was always: “Okay, I got you.”
It made us closer, being in this strange juggernaut together. I’m the middle child, so I’ve always been the bridge. I can relate to both really well. Nick and I are athletic, we bond over sports. Kevin and I were always close, but we don’t see each other as much since he got married. We were just three brothers facing all this insanity together. Whenever any one of us got too cocky, we’d remind each other that this shit wasn’t handed to us, we’d remind each other of all the people who hated on us from the beginning, who didn’t believe we were any good. We used that as motivation to get us going and keep us going.
Given all that, performing with two other people, especially if they’re your brothers, can be difficult. We all brought different ideas to the table when we wrote music together, and they didn’t always coincide—one person wants to write a happy song, one person wants to write a sad song, and I might just want to write a song about taking a walk down the beach. So in 2010, around the time that Nick was doing his side project, Nick Jonas & the Administration, I decided to take some time on my own to experiment and go in a new direction. And it happened organically. I was creating music, which turned into recording music on my own, which turned into thinking about what it would feel like to perform those songs onstage.
One of my biggest career disappointments happened a few years ago, when I made a solo album that never saw the light of day. I recorded more than a dozen songs with a guy named Robert Schwartzman, who’s the lead singer of Rooney, and the album was kind of Hall & Oates–y. Had a Freddie Mercury vibe (he’s one of my biggest influences). I handed the songs in, and Hollywood Records was like, “This doesn’t work.” They said the songs were too weird and sounded like demos. The record company wanted me to use a team of Disney hit-makers—the people who wrote with Selena Gomez and Miley a couple of years ago. But it felt so fake to me. I called my manager and said, “I really want to slam my head into a wall right now.”
We reached out to some of the biggest producers in the business, Rob Knox and Danja, for the solo album that actually got released, called Fastlife. There was a track with Lil Wayne on which he said the word bitch, and when I heard the album was going to have a parental-advisory label because of it, half of me was thinking, Sweet! People are going to think I’m a bad ass. The other half thought, That’s going to alienate a lot of fans in Middle America. I’m not saying that’s the sole reason why the album ultimately didn’t do as well as my previous records had. But I think there were a lot of cooks in the kitchen, and I think it was rushed, and I couldn’t speak up because I was scared to. They wanted me to be this Justin Timberlake clone. Even one of the heads of Hollywood Records said, “He’s the new Justin Timberlake!”
After that, it was back to being with the Jonas Brothers, the “boy band.” I’m not offended that everyone would think we were a boy band; I like some boy-band music. Even yesterday, somebody said, “You still dance, right?” and I said, “I never did that.” But I can see why people saw us that way. We largely had a teen audience, and we’ve been on teen-pop magazines where you’d have to cuddle puppies. We wanted to be perceived as a cool band, one that plays its own instruments and writes its own songs, but a lot of people didn’t notice that. Radio stations would be like, “Whoa! Really? you brought guitars? Why?” All I could think was, You’re kidding, right?
The Jonas Brothers’ breakup was going on for a lot longer than a lot of people thought. We hit a place where we just weren’t jelling on the same things, and we didn’t want to become a band that was worried about the fact that people didn’t understand how cool we were. The whole situation was breaking us up as a family, and we ultimately felt like we were holding each other back. I wanted to go sexier with a video, for example, and Kevin wasn’t comfortable with that, for his reasons. I mean, he’s married, and I get that. Nick also had a louder voice than me and Kevin when it came to music and major decisions—he took a leadership role in the band, which got to us after a while.
Things came to a head when we had a meeting where we thought we were going to talk about how to release our new music and it ended up shifting into this huge fight. That was the first time we were really honest with one another about a lot of stuff we weren’t happy with. The fight got loud. I was screaming. When Nick presented the idea of closing a chapter and moving on, I freaked out. I didn’t know whether to pick up and leave or just punch something, because I was furious. I’d spent so long working with my brothers on this band, and in my mind, it felt like we were just giving up. It didn’t make sense to me.
But once I started peeling back the layers, I understood. There were a lot of dysfunctional things going on. The music was getting stale, too, because we’d write it and record it and then it would sit around for a long time. After that meeting, we took a night to think about things, met again, and nothing was resolved, so we decided to take a week and think about it. Then we canceled the tour. It would have been really tough for me to go on a last-hurrah tour. I didn’t care about the money; I just wanted to figure out the right, healthy way for us to be good as a family.
We appeared on Good Morning America to talk about the breakup, because we thought that would be the professional way of explaining it and expressing our love to the fans—I think they felt they were owed an explanation. Some of them were mad that this was happening, but at the end of the day, we’re trying to take care of ourselves as family. And that’s fine. And that should be fine.
Now that I’m 24 and have control of my life, I’m going back to the drawing board. I’ve been through a shit-ton of stuff, but I’m genuinely excited because now I can go back to the studio with those people who I used to work with. I don’t have to rely on anyone else’s opinion, whether good or bad, and hear them say, “No, no, you can’t go write with them. That’s too weird for us.” Because weird works. Look at Lorde.

    • JJ456

      Taylor is BSC. We don’t need him to tell us that, lol.

      • Lol

        What, BSC for escaping the train wreck that would become Joe Jonas? Compare him to her and…actuallyyou can’t tbh. Her success >>>him resorting to a tell-all interview where he basically explains how everything you thought you knew about him as a fan was a lie.

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          She didn’t ‘escape’, he let her go.

          • dandan

            yes but she knew he broke up with her so basically he told her the message in less than 30 seconds which is still douch-bag-ey to be honest with you, shes a bitch but thats fucking wrong.

          • kat

            the whole point is that if you’ve been dating someone and both have put in effort such as flying to see each other across the
            world. The least you can do when you’re leaving them for another girl is let them know in person. Rather than ignoring them and then calling them up on the phone and break up with them in the first 30 secs. Its sad that he can’t even take fault for his behavior and tries to make her out to be the bad guy. Duhh if you’re going to leave a girl for someone else, she’s gonna be pissed.

    • XaskTaylorX

      But then look at her now selling out whatever she was promoting and she was sweet and classy (something like that) at the CMA’s this year. Yup. Lol.

    • kay

      Oh please, he wrote a song called “superstar” about her. He needs to give it a rest. Its not looking bright for him anytime soon. Bashing people who are successful doesn’t make him look any better.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      Literally my final thoughts after reading this mess of an interview oh my word

  • JJ456

    WOW, just WOW. I love his honesty.

  • Sadiezz

    holy shit is this really happening rn

    • JUG

      Well, if he was being completely honest, he would have said that he was not prepared to walk away from the fame and fortune that Disney gave him. Yes, Disney may be evil but Joe, Nick and Kevin could have at any time said NO. Their contract may have prevented them from recording for anyone else for a few years but they would have protected their integrity. Some young artists have said no to their label and management. Hansen for example. David Archuleta is a more recent example. The result is that they are not as famous, wealthy and successful as the Jonas Brothers but they did not have to compromise themselves.

      So, bravo to Joe for being so frank and honest. I just wish he would have said “I wanted fame and fortune and was willing to do anything Disney asked to get it. Now I regret it.” That would help lots of young singers out there who may face the same difficult choice in the future: instant fame and fortune vs artistic integrity.

      • WickedlyMiserable

        ^^THIS!!! Everybody is getting crazy about the hole Disney thing, when first of all everybody know who they MADE celebrities whether their talent or not. Also, I strongly think that our parent are the one who brought us to this world to guide us and take care of us. Some deserve the title some not and to me the parents of ALL disney starts are the ones to blame in the first place because they allow Disney treat them like puppets.

        • JUG

          Yep, he could have said no to Jonas, Jonas LA, Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 and the 3D concert film but he would not be as wealthy today or able to go on endless vacations and shipping sprees with Blanda. Just man up and admit that you could not say No to the fame and fortune. I probably couldn’t either. Just don’t make it out like you had no choice because I do think that’s a dangerous message to send out to other wannabe teen stars out there today. There really are some teen stars who said No to the teen idol bullshit and lived to tell about it.

          • JJ456

            You need to remember that he had 2 brothers in the band too, AND a very greedy father & mother.

          • LJ02

            I am SO glad someone finally brought up their greedy parents! You just know they were always the ones pushing these kids to do more, to not complain, reminding them how “blessed” they were with all these great opportunities. I have always said from the beginning, Kevin & Denise were shallow and money hungry; too willing to sell all 4 of their children out so they didn’t have to work. I actually feel sorry for these boys now.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        I’d take artistic integrity every time.

        • in jesus name i pray amen

          not many do…

        • LJ02

          It’s easy to say when you’re not in the position…

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            You don’t know me & you have no clue if I ever was in that position. Don’t assume. :)

      • in jesus name i pray amen

        and finally some truth has been spoken. Girl preach on top that mountain. You preach.

        girl that could have been jennifer stone for all we know lmfao

        • Selene

          Wait, I thought that girl was Chelsea

          • ashleyofcourse

            people think it was brenda. there are so many possibilities really.

      • LJ02

        Pretty sure it was Brenda Sing

  • monika

    I AM LEGIT SCREAMING THE DEMI MILEY WEED THING AND LOOSING VIRGINITY AT 20 OMG

    • XaskTaylorX

      So that neurogasm juice was really for that then.

      • OCEANUP

        omgggg

    • huh

      Sorry, but what do you mean losing his virginity at 20? That it’s a bad thing?

    • R

      ASHLEY AND JOE DID IT :)

    • RegReach

      thank god tv makes it seem like you gay if your a dude and dont losse it at 16 now i dont feel so pressured

    • iasidk

      Losing virginity at 18 is considered the average age of losing virginity, like seriously, this isn’t so scandalous.

  • lolumadhuh

    “That girl was batshit crazy. I’m glad I didn’t go there.” Taylor shaaaaade!

    • kat

      Oh please, he’s the biggest douche. He was acting like a little puppy trying to get her back once she hit it big with the speak now album. He was going to her concerts paying her compliments left and right trying to get back with her. Once he realized she wasn’t interested in round 2 he starts up with the dick commentary that is innately Joe Jonas. Trying to diss her for dating, when he admits he had random hook ups for 2-3 years straight and took advantage of his groupie fans.

      • lolumadhuh

        Ummm… no. He dumped her over a phone call that was less than a minute and moved on to Camille. She is crazy and we all know this. Its been said all the time. She wasn’t even going out with Harry officially when she wrote I Knew You Were Trouble about him. That shit is crazy.

  • anon

    Neurogasm holy shit! lmao

    • OCEANUP

      lollll

  • shocked

    Omg if he was 17 or 18 miley and demi were 14 or 15…

    • Stephanie

      damn those girls were wild!!

      • pily

        Lol jajajaja

    • Izzy

      Oh my god, they smoked pot at 14/15…like every other high school student. Scandal! I started smoking pot in grade 9 when, shocking, I was only 14 years old.

      • Stephanie

        I did not smoke in high school…..

      • brit

        I’m 17 and still to this day have not smoked weed… Not “every high school student” does things like that. Things like that are why people feel so pressured to do everything everyone else does.

  • Zaina

    Wait, so demi and miley were 14 when they did weed?

    • Blue

      I CANT BE TAMED LMAO

  • cerenagee

    Omg this is gold. I absolutely love his honesty. Its so refreshing.

    • pily

      This prove that disney has everyone under his control!! Lol

      • cerenagee

        Yupp. But its like Disney also makes you famous as fuck and if you want that you gotta play by Disneys rules and uphold a squeaky clean image for your little kid fan base.

        • RegReach

          So the whole miley contradiction from 2007 make sense now she was under contract she coulndt say she smokin weed in the mickey mouse clubhouse with the jb and demi

          • cerenagee

            Mhmm.

  • Sarona

    YAAAASSS WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

  • pily

    Wow!! Im in shok right now! I respect joe more now

  • pily

    I wish i was the fan he hooked up with :/ lol jajaja but well, this actually proves he is normal

    • kyl

      Hooking up with people and doing drugs does not make him normal. It makes him a human being. There are plenty of people who don’t “hook up” or do drugs. What Joe has done is only pushed on the public as “normal”.

      • leggoofmahmeggo

        This! I feel the same way.

    • ashleyofcourse

      ….i guess im not normal :/ i havent done any of what hes done…
      to everyone saying joe is actually ‘normal':
      he always was…

      what do you guys think the rich and fame bound do all day? of course they do ‘normal’ things like SOME other people do. i have to emphasize some because you guys like to think that A) everyone does drugs and have sex and B) this supposedly makes one normal.

      idk. out of all he said, nothing surprised me too much. the only thing i didnt expect was him not doing weed till after miley and demi did. and not having sex till he was 20. that was truly refreshing though cause i know people like to think if they dont have sex by age 5 then they must be uncool. but no one cares though. many people say theyve done it, then you get to college and find out half of them lied lmfao. even more so is when people say they wish they were still virgins.

      i dont know his intentions for these confessions, did he just not care, did he want more money?, is there another ulterior motive that we’re not sensing? either way ive long since learned not to give a flying buck about what celebs do. take them for their talent then go home. thats the best way to do it. cause its so annoying never knowing whats really up.

      • in jesus name i pray amen

        “i dont know his intentions for these confessions, did he just not care, did he want more money?”

        Honestly I think it was just bc he has nothing left to lose, so why not just tell all & name drop while he’s at it. He knows his career is over tbqh and is doing it bc he just doesn’t give a fuck and is over the expectations and standards of society, media and the hollywood industry.

        • ashleyofcourse

          oh my goodness that gif x’D
          i can imagine all of us sitting at a circle conference table just sitting and seriously discussing this jonas issue. with starbucks cups and folders and graphs hahahaa
          but yeah i agree though, either that or mula.

          • Amanda

            HAHAHAH YES!!!

          • in jesus name i pray amen

            omg we literally need like an OU conference debate. thank god our community is growing. ONE DAY ONE DAY… I’m almost 100% btw that celebs do not get paid for interviews/exclusives. They only get paid for TV appearances like GMA etc, but only by hour.

          • ashleyofcourse

            ohhh okay that changes things then…
            buttt ahhh yesyesyess! i wish there were like OU meet ups. they do that for tumblr i heard! but everyone is so scattered across the country i bet :/

      • queenofshade

        I think his intentions were to separate himself from that fake image that people still associate him with because he wants to be known as the real him, not a fake version of himself that he hated.

  • live.love.learn.

    Oh my god. The honesty. The shadeeee!

    I remember my Jonas phase back when I was like 13-14, and I thought he was so perfect lmfao little did I know

    • Rosemary

      LMFAO this!

  • WickedlyMiserable

    WoW, I am kinda of speechless!! So many rumours were
    actually true, the fight, the rings, the Demi thing was exactly as was said in
    the gossips year ago, the fans hookups, the drugs… Some parts were so
    dramatic, like : “It was always a struggle because every single night we
    were walking into hate. Sometimes people flipped us off, threw water bottles at
    us.” I laughed at this. Anyhow, he is not much older that I am, they
    really understimated us, as they were understimated. I’ve been a fan for more than 7 years but now, at this very
    moment after I have readed how uncomfortable, trapped and “fake” they
    had felt, I’m not longer feel like I am a bad fan because at some point I
    didn’t understand why they have been behaving so poorly toward us, I feel the
    same as they feel, as well as they had feel like they don’t own us anything, I
    feel like I don’t own them anything, so to this day, I can say that my first
    and only favourited band/singer/musician for some years was the Jonas Brothers
    (I became a Mcfly through them), I will always remember them, they marked my
    youth, I met such an increible amount of jonas sis I keep in tough with, I
    learned that I should never take an singe/band seriously enough that I’ve spend
    hours of my life waiting to be the first to buy a album, a t-shir, tickets
    etc. I promised I would stay till the
    end, I didn’t give up on them, they give up so now I can happily move on. I
    still love them so much but now the Jonas Brothers don’t exist anymore so I can’t
    say that I still a fan. :/

  • Curious

    Where was Selena when all this was happening after all she and Demi were best friends back then,not Miley and Demi and the brothers had cut Miley out of their lives in fact Miley and Taylor were friends at that time,so something does not add up

    • cerenagee

      Demi and Selena also stopped talking for awhile though.

      • disqus_aVkUwmIqZd

        probably cause selena was angry at demi for doing drugs and she didn’t wanna be associated with any of that

        • lolumadhuh

          they never really were as close as they seemed…

        • cre

          for all we know selena is the one who introduced drugs to demi and Justin they did become addicted afterbeen friends with her,also joe cant talk about her she still with Disney and she still has that fake plastic image,she hasn’t broken from Disney so she cant break awayand he has to keep lying to her fans. joe spoke about demi and miley because theey came out clean demi talking about rehab and miley doing the videos about weed but selena still hiding behind Disney lap,for all we know selena was there too but he cant say because she still with Disney while miley and demi are not!

          • wtv

            Selena is not with Disney crazy one. She is just with HWR and so does Demi.

          • ashleyofcourse

            hollywood records is Disney’s record label.

    • babyblue617

      there is obviously more to this than what we are being told

  • PQM

    Ya know. That was probably the best post-Disney interview of any Disney kid ever. So honest and doesn’t trash anyone that he could have trashed. Not his exes or his brothers. You could tell when this whole Jonas break up took place, he took it hard at first. Kudos to him that he is mature enough and centered enough to put it all into perspective and move on with his life.

    • RegReach

      remember the zack and cody interview
      thre was pretty honest too
      i enjoyed how they politly explain how confining the builsnesss is with disney

      • Joanna

        I remember the one with Dylan and Cole too. Disney is pretty harsh to the people that work for the company…they kind of remind me of Wal-Mart lol

        • RegReach

          Actually I think they way south park protrays them is super accurate, its funny becasue the jonas brother would not comment on that episode but it was right on the money

    • lols

      I think the Jonas fans needed this. After all the lies (because of Disney) Joe is speaking the truth, he’s saying “we’re human beings, we mess up”. Now that they’re out of Disney I feel like they owed it to fans. And teens should know, their fans or other fans, that people from Disney are not these perfect puppets. So many people got disappointed because the Jonas were getting a bit “wilder”, but honestly, they were never perfect. And the thing about not wanting to talk about his relationships because he didn’t want to rub it in his fan’s faces was pretty sweet of him and of them.
      Seriously, he gained my sympathy with this. Cause I think the things that the fans most hate is when their idols seem contradictory. Now we can all see why Miley seemed “contradictory” sometimes. Because that wasn’t her opinion, she was speaking something Disney told her to speak. This is what makes us see how Disney can produce fake and plastic puppets, when you never know if what they’re saying are they real opinion.

      He was really brave to speak all of that, congrats Joe.

  • Leela

    Does this mean he lost his virginity to Camilla?

    • disqus_aVkUwmIqZd

      ashley

      • in jesus name i pray amen

        Wait are you sure? I think he was dating Camilla at the time. Listen to Taylor’s song too

        • Stephanie

          do the math…its ash

    • RegReach

      Taylor is a tease

    • anon

      No he dated Camilla at 19. Ashley and Demi were at 20.

      • Leela

        And he DID mention Ashley being his first serious relationship…you’re right

        • anon

          could be either one who knows

        • stephanie lauren

          he dated for almost a year camilla not ashley first! it goes. taylor first then camilla then demi then ashely! i dont know how they said that ashley was for almost a year!

          • LSA

            Yes, but what they’re saying is that when he was with Camilla, he was 19. And he said he lost it at 20. And then he says he only dated Demi for a month, and Ashley was his first serious relationship. So…

          • Guest

            But Joe and Demi dated more than just a month… So that statement in the article is not right.

          • true

            it started out as just pr then they forreal dated for a month. then the incident with demi happened on the tour and rehab etc.

          • JJ456

            He broke up with her before the tour, isn’t?

          • Guest

            No, they dated more than just a month and it just didn’t work out because Joe wasn’t happy and Demi needed help for her personal issues back then.

          • anon

            yeah i remember there was an interview when demi was in rehab i think it was people mag and said that joe broke up with her because she was too out of control with the drugs and her attitude

  • disqus_aVkUwmIqZd

    here is my theory….taylor and selena become close cause they didn’t smoke weed and demi and miley became close because they smoked together

    • RegReach

      sure thats it ……… yeahhhh

    • Anon

      doesn’t sound too far off…I would probably also distance myself from other people doing drugs and hang around people who don’t smoke. Everyone has their own choices

    • lolumadhuh

      their not angels sweetheart..

      • Stephanie

        well aware honey

    • Valentina Paz Pamies Crema

      i’d become friend with miley and demi lol

  • anon

    im glad he acknowledged he was fed up with nick trying to be in charge of the band

  • anon

    and he said he’s not close with nick

  • Vanessa

    The interview we had all been waiting for. Thank you, Joe.

  • Joanna

    “Nick also had a louder voice than me and Kevin when it came to music and major decisions—he took a leadership role in the band, which got to us after a while.”

    This is the part that I paid a lot of attention to.

  • Sonia

    So Miley and Mandy WERE high on their videos…

    • disqus_aVkUwmIqZd

      that explains a lot lol

      • in jesus name i pray amen

        It’s like a tanktop

  • Anon

    Lmfao, this interview. And to think I always dreamed of being disney. I also can’t tell if Joe likes Taylor or doesn’t. One minute he compliments her and then the next he disses her. Either way, I guess she’s the one laughing at him and his career along with her 7 grammys

  • wow

    And Once more nothing about Selena. Who is Selena Gomez? A robot? She never messed up? I think the only ones that could give us that info are Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber.

    • babyblue617

      she seems pretty boring

      • FH

        She’s boring because (so far) she has yet to have a “scandal” doing drugs or some sh*t like that? I guess I’m must be boring as well.

        • RegReach

          More like she is fake and hiding her shit
          she not readt to liberate herself, that why she gonna fall the hardest
          and I am waiting for it,eveyone else has gone though there ordeal but her she is NEXT

          • FH

            I don’t care what she is “hiding” or not, but this notion that people are only “liberated” if they are sleeping with everything with a pulse or doing drugs has got to stop.

          • ashleyofcourse

            blessss :)

      • Jo

        I’d rather be “boring” than smoke weed, get drunk, or have sex all the time. Not everyone has to get naked or be under the influence to have a good time. Y’all need to get out of that ‘everyone does it’/societal ‘norm’ mentality.

        • babyblue617

          I didn’t mean it like that…boring as in like hiding her secrets

          • huh

            But why should she have to reveal her secrets tho..? Like people make the “choice” to do drugs or sleep around, she should have the choice to reveal her “secrets” or whatever she wants about herself.

          • nieconq

            I think she didn’t messed up. She was too afraid to lose her job on disney because losing the Barney one hit her hard

          • Amber

            She can’t stay in Barney forever. I don’t think it hit her that hard.

          • nieconq

            it looked like that on her E! Special, when she says that she learnt from Barney that in a minute all coud be gone

          • Amber

            Haven’t you ever seen how much they exagerate and dramatize everything on E! Special?

          • ashleyofcourse

            but thats the thing.
            what if she has none?
            meaning, what if she has no drug/sex secrets?
            what if her secrets were just small ones like, yeah once my friends and i tripped someone on purpose in the hallway!
            people like to assume that celebs actually do hard stuff, but really not all of them do. or even if they do, they dont have to be public about it. i wouldnt air my dirty laundry to this judgmental, ever unsatisfied world.

        • kurty

          you really think that selena hasn’t try drugs you stupid if you think that, selena has been around really toxic people demi and Justin for all we know she thee one who got Justin hooked on drugs, he didn’t do them before her, and demi what a coincidence that everyone selena has been friend with becomes drugs addicts back then they didn’t have that amount of money but selena did, I think selena is the worst of all but she has a team hiding all her shit because of what happen to miley, beside everyone can tell that selena lies and her fakeness come across so clear is disturbing. selena has been taken photograph drinking maybe she an alcoholic like Justin say.

          • sostp

            Don’t be stupid. Justin smoked weed since he lived in Canada. Ask his friend of back there

          • sostp

            and Justin never said Selena is an alcoholic.

    • :)

      And she still is that robot!!!!

    • ashleyofcourse

      hm i think its cause shes still with disney….
      so idk if he’s allowed to.
      or maybe he can say stuff but because shes still with disney hes being respectful and staying quiet.

    • A Cat

      Joe never seemed particularly close with Selena aside from maybe when she was dating Nick back in 2008 so there was no reason to bring her up. Selena has a really clean, pure image right now so if Joe were to say anything that contradicted it, she and her team would definitely not make it easy on him.

      It is also possible that she stays away from all that stuff. I’m not saying that she 100% does. We know that she drinks with her friends when she goes out and has probably slept with Justin since he’s had no problem hooking up with prostitutes post-Jelena but Selena’s very smart business-wise. She knows how much trouble her career and reputation would be in if she were to be caught with drugs.

  • boystan

    i don’t like him but i’d let him tbh

  • boystan

    miley started smoking weed at 16? omg

    • babyblue617

      more like 15

    • RegReach

      15 she was the youngest in the D group at the time

  • anon

    Question : was Joe smoking weed when he did this interview?

  • Amandaf

    I wonder if the girl he was “sneaking out and hooking up with in the car” was Chelsea Staub from JONAS.

    • Stephanie

      maybe or AJ

      • KRP

        He said he was 20 so I’m guessing Demi.

        • Stephanie

          nope he turned 20 while he was dating Ashley…do the math

          • Guest

            Actually no, Joe did not turned 20 years old while he was dating Ashley in 2010. He was already 20 years old. His birthday month that year of 2010 is where he turned 21 years old. Basically, Joe’s birthday is August 15, 1989. So 2009 – 1989 = 20 and 2010 – 1989 = 21. Therefore, he turned 20 years old in August 15, 2009 way before dating Ashley in 2010.

          • WickedlyMiserable

            -Joe dated Camilla from October 2008 to July 2009 so Joe was not 20 yet.
            -Joe dated Demi form February to April 2010 he was 20 there.
            -Joe dated Ashley June 2010 – March 2011 he was 20 when they stated dating but was 21 when they broke up.

          • Guest

            Yes that is basically it.

          • WickedlyMiserable

            so it was either Demi or Ashley. Taking in consideration that he wasn’t into Demi and he said Ashley was his first serious relation…

          • Ee

            yeah joe jonas was turnig 20 in 2009 and 21 in 2010

    • JJ456

      Brenda Song?

      • Chelsea

        It cant be Brenda Song bc he said no pics got out yet there’s pic of him and Brenda

        • Cici

          No pics of them hooking up in a car. He was saying that if those got out it would do damage on both of their careers, but they never did. I was thinking Brenda of Meagan Jette Martin( whatever her names is) that horrible actress from camp rock…but idk if she was really that big in disney to suffer from that. Or it could be Chelsea Staub (Kane).

    • cerenagee

      I think AJ

      • Cat

        I think AJ too. Aly and AJ were super popular in Disney when it sounds like this happened if he was that scared about it, he was probs only 16 or so lol

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      DEFF Brenda Song.

      • Chelsea

        Cant be her there’s pic of him and Brenda he said there was no pics

    • Cici

      Yeah i was thinking her! If you google them, they did seem like they were kinda close.

    • pily

      Am i the only one who think the girl he was hooking up was selena? Maybe miley? :/

      • Chelsea

        Nope im thinking that too

    • Fallen Smith

      Think it was Emily Osment.

      She had a slutty song back in the day “Lets be friends … (so we can make out) ” – according to Wikipedia : Emily has previously stated in an interview that “Let’s Be Friends” is about a complicated relationship she held with someone in 2009.

      And round that time, they were both filming their shows, her Disney contract was still intact.

      Soo if his “friend with benefit” thing in the car happened in 09, then it would make sense.

      — PLAYIN’ DETECTIVE IS SO MUCH FUN .. not. lol

    • Guest

      for some reason I posted that 2. Eeck , Sorry

  • kfkfdjglkdf

    First Miley and now Joe. Who’s gonna be the next to come out and talk about Disney. I’m waiting for Selena to start talking. I know it couldn’t have all been perfect with her like she says. You know I was smh at Miley about what she has said about Disney like dude they are the ones who gave you your start and made you famous and your gonna act like ur not greatful and like they screwed you up, but shes kinda right and I get it now. Disney messes with ppl. They try to make the stars robots and only the way they what them to be. I laughed about the comments about Disney and the lab, but its so true. No one is squeaky clean perfect. Hello look at the Disney stars they pretty much all have had issues with drugs and alcohol and pics and stuff were getting out all the time. I mean come on. Disney shouldn’t be like that. Idk im sure yall know what im talking about. No need to go on and on. I’m glad Joe come out and talked about it all. Kinda feels like the first real interview/article he has done. Props to him for holding nothing back. He didn’t even hold back names. Go Joe. Tell it like it is. Now with all this with Disney I wonder how it is with Nickelodeon. If its the same way…

    • KRP

      Nickelodean gives more freedom to their stars than Disney. The only time they’ve ever really been upset with an actor was when Britney Spears sister got pregnant.

      • dkdhjsdd

        Yep, and if you look at the Nickelodeon stars, from Victoria Justice to Miranda Cosgrove, they’re very much more sane and in control of their lives than the big Disney channel stars of the same period.

        • Fallen Smith

          Kinda agree, but remember Amanda Bynes? she was a Nickelodeon star.

      • ty

        all disney actors are fake they acting fake for their fans

    • WickedlyMiserable

      I don’t thinks is the same but Nickelodeon and Disney work very different, when Disney find the “one” they do everything they can to make that person as fame as posible, music/serie/ads/memorabilia. Disney starts are more famous that Nickelodeon starts by a big differences. Disney makes the starts the priority when Nick make the content of their cartoons the priority

    • pily

      Selena cant talk about disney becouse she is from disney, she is part of hollywood records so i dont think she is going to talk anytime soon

    Confession – I had sex with Joe in my backyard.

  • adele

    Wow this was good. He must feel so uh better now. Good for him. ***side eye** @ Disney

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I really liked how honest he was, no bullshitting nor needing to throw names in to make his point. And the part about him trying weed with Demi & Miley at 17/18 is freakishly sad. Not because he tried it but because Miley must of been 14/15 at the time she was pressuring him to try it. The screaming part about the break up in the meeting (I feel you bb) explains why he looked so red eyed around that week. Like wow Nick seems like a douche.

  • Rosemary

    The fuck?

    Love this. I’ve been a fan for YEARS, honestly i’ve lost track. However, I will never lose track of how much i love the jonas brothers as a band and individually! After everything, its refreshing to see what they went through and put up with because ultimately, we see that they are normal human beings. I will always support these boys (now men) in the future.

    Joe jonas is such a moron. He’s obviously going through some heavy middle child syndrome. PS – no one cares about your life as a Jonas

  • A.U.

    Not all disney stars went crazy, take a look at Raven, Hilary Duff, Ricky Ullman, etc… Even though they went through Disney fame, there fame had died down after their shows and movies ended. They are living normal lives now…

    Anyways, props to Joe for being honest. :)

    • Anna

      What happened to Ricky Ullman, he just disappeared haha? For all we know he could have gone crazy.

      As for the interview, wow! I have been feeling off about Joe for a while, but this interview fixed that. He was very honest and showed he isn’t perfect and that he has made mistakes.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Wondering if Disney will SUE Joe’s ass. They sign confidentiality agreements and contracts regarding the secrets and behind the scenes of the industry… so this will all pan out interestingly.

    • Stephanie

      that’s what I was thinking!

    • JJ456

      They didn’t sue Dylan & Cole Sprouse.

      • cerenagee

        Honestly indomt think Disney would because not only did they not reveal anything top secret buttttt it would also make Disney look super bad and shady

        • JJ456

          I don’t think Disney wants all their secrets out. I bet what we’ve heard is just a small percent.

    • cerenagee

      But he didn’t necessarily reveal information that we didn’t know. Disney has to be kid appropriate considering they have 4 year olds watching the show. He never said anything top secret

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      They won’t sue, he didn’t tell anything that wasn’t already known & it would be revealing how truthful it is if they tried.

    • nonfiction

      its not like he told about the sex ring that disney participates in or the child predators who often execs. or the child pornography. please everything joe said was nothing compared to what is really going on behind the scenes at disney why so many stars from disney are fucked up.

  • Jo

    This makes me rethink a lot of the stupid arguments and rumors that circulated the entire Disney crew (Miley, Jonas, Demi, & Selena). Demi’s bad habits might have been the reason why she and Selena grew apart, and how Demi and Miley got closer. That’s probably why Selena and Miley weren’t as close…they just weren’t into the same things. I don’t think Nick was the main reason why those two weren’t friends; he may have been a reason but not THE reason.

    Joe waited until he was 20 to have sex…which is pretty cool to me. A lot of people just assume that sexual experiences start once you’re a teenager. For a lot of people, they do, but at least Joe did it when he was an adult and fully aware and in control of what he was doing.

    I appreciate his honesty about religion. So now that we know where he stands, no one should really force anything or make implications in regards to his beliefs. Just leave that part of him alone.

    I also like how he was open about his brothers, especially Nick. I’m not trying to say that he said that Nick was controlling, but I did have an idea that Kevin and Joe would probably voice their opinions towards Nick at some point.

    This truly was something that the fans have been waiting for and it makes me look at the boys in a more humanistic way. I won’t lie, when I was a dedicated fan, I did put the boys on a pedestal and believed that they were perfect. A lot of the rumors, I overlooked because I didn’t want to face the reality. A lot of the fans (probably almost all, but some won’t admit it) were the same way. This is a realization. The guys are human just like we are, and I respect the hell out of them for it.

    • gngjm

      haha dedicated fan? please jonas brothers dosent know you you better stop living your fantasis world they never had dedicated fan

    • KK

      well dedicated fan? sorry you must be dreaming about jonas brothers besides they dont know you you dont know them and they dont know if you exist in the world they have so many fans that no one is a dedicated fan

    • ghgjjg

      can you please stop voting for yourself

    • A Cat

      I think Demi herself explained that her partying and destructive habits was part of the reason they drifted apart. I’ll try to see if I can find the article but Demi said that she takes responsibility for it since she was hard to put up with during that time. It’s sad though that they aren’t as close, even though they’ve been reconnecting.

  • anon

    wait he dated demi longer than a month. I think they went public in like March and broke up in May, but were dating before March cause they were too cozy during the Oscar party in February and there were rumors for like months prior that they were dating. lol

    • anon

      *Probably the weed messed up his memory a bit

      • Stephanie

        lolol

    • queenofshade

      he meant that they were actually dating for a month, and when he wanted to end it disney got involved and made him stay with demi longer until they were done promoting their ocean song.

    • Stephanie

      what’s not to believe? we all suspected this kinda stuff

  • ty

    well joe jonas never love demi he was using her PR

    • JJ456

      I don’t think he said anything we didn’t know or suspect before. I’m sure he let Demi & Miley know about this interview.

      • Ee

        well joe jonas was using demi for publicity disney they use them to be a cuple but the truth is they never love to each other

        • JJ456

          I think Demi was madly in love with him the first moment she met him. I think Joe cared for her but never loved her. I think him hooking up with her was his biggest mistake cuz him dumping her while she struggled with all her issues brought a huge backlash on HIM that he is yet to recover from.

          • Ee

            yeah joe jonas he was protecting her but he was not happy for that becuase he was protecting demi how sad and he dont want that

    • Lyn

      I think on HIS side it was for PR, but she was actually in love with him.

  • Duckyhoward15

    Lol Joe

  • A

    Why are people surprised by this? Its been a known fact for years that if you work for Disney you play by THEIR rules. Disney is hard on their stars, that much has been seen, but didn’t we all already know Disney held them to such a high standard?

  • Jonas

    Honestly, this makes me sad .. But i’m so thankful with hem for be honest with us, and i’ll not leave my Joseph, i love him
    I think the haters will judge him, but i don’t care ..

  • lsdjd

    I find it very interesting that Joe and Camilla were in a relationship for a year when he was 19, yet he says that he didn’t start having sex ’till he was 20, saying Ashley Green was his first serious relationship. My question is: what were he and Camilla doing for nearly a year if the relationship was neither serious or sexual?

    • Stephanie

      dating?

      • sklsod

        Kind of a long time to date someone without any progress in the relationship, though. Sounds more like they were just friends and comfortable with each other than actually being romantically involved

        • kdelly

          i’m about to turn 21, i’ve been dating the same guy for 2 years and I’m still a virgin (he wasn’t when he met me) and trust me you can be in a serious relationship without having sex…

          • moreplease

            Sure, but in this interview Joe said his first serious relationship was with Ashley Green, so the question still stands: why was he with Camilla for nearly a year if the relationship wasn’t serious and wasn’t sexual?

          • kdelly

            he could’ve meant the circumstances in which he was in, like he was living on his on when with ash and all that, but who knows, i will agree its a little off

        • A Cat

          You can have a relationship without sex.

    • anon

      I think when he says serious he means that he was an adult and that he lived alone. So that was his first relationship that was adult-like. He was living alone when he dated Demi, but she was underage he probably didnt feel comfortable doing the things he did with Ashley. And couldnt like go to idk Beachers Madhouse and whatever.

      idk if i explained myself but im asleep so i probably dont make sense

      • JJ456

        I think he meant sex, lol. He kinda admit that Ashley was his first.

    • anon

      Well if you pay attention to the gossip world, there have been whispers for years that Camilla plays for the other team. So if that is true it’s possible she and Joe didn’t have sex, because he doesn’t have the equipment she’s interested in.

      • kinglord

        Yeah, I’ve heard the rumours about Camilla being gay, and that she supposedly dated the tennis player Maria Sharapova. If that’s the case I hope she finds the courage to be comfortable with herself and not enter into phony pr relationships with men.

    • k

      I read a article where said that Camilla Belle was virgin.

  • Mandy
    • JJ456

      Well, the sex parts are untrue if you go by what he claim. And I think you can look at pics and SEE that his size is def not small, lol.

    • queenofshade

      omg you know the source of that story is a parody gossip site right?

  • Let’s Not

    Im so proud of him. This interview really humanizes him as a celeb and also gives a realistic view of the industry. Bravo Joe Jonas.

  • KRP

    Wow some real honesty, weird that it’s coming from Joe though, kinda expected this to come from Nick first. Also everyone chill Disney doesn’t own Joe anymore so they can’t sue him fro telling the truth. Also Joe most likely made sure it was ok with Demi an Miley to name drop them.

    • kdelly

      not disagreeing with you, actually do agree with you, since they’re public figures (celebrity) and Disney is a LARGE cooperation they can’t sue joe for anything he says unless they can prove legal/actual malice and all this other crap….sorry i’m studying libel (defamation of character) for my exam tomorrow :)

  • adele

    The thing is that Disney has a longer history of trying to maintain a squeaky clean image, so why not hire kids who are already like that? .Why hire young people who are wild, experimental or batshit crazy and then try to put a glossy squeaky clean facade over them? Why get upset over their music lyrics that shows them growing up? Nickleodeon doesn’t have this history. All the actors over there are just whatever. They are not pressured to have this image for the most part. Quite the opposite really. You are allowed to be what you feel like as long as you show up for work & NICK events. The only big scandal has been the Jamie Lynn Spears pregnacy/Zoey101 drama.

    • a

      Which is most likely exactly why Nick stars are not HALF as famous or rich as Disney stars.

      I really don’t get why people are upset about this. Like you said, Disney has a history of wanting to maintain a clean image, there really is nothing wrong with that. If the stars they pick can’t maintain that then maybe they should look for kids who truly ARE squeaky clean, no one is “perfect” by any means, but I’m sure there are some young kids out there who would be perfectly fine with working for Disney and never once smoking, drinking, partying, or taking a hit from a bong. Disney just needs to go out and search a little harder for them.

      Although I think Disney holds these kids to a high standard, it really isn’t Disney fault these kids do what they do. They knew what they were getting themselves into and the criteria that was set when they signed on the dotted line. If they didn’t think they could uphold that, they should of walked away.

    • lols

      No, omg, you really don’t understand, do you. It’s exactly the PRESSURE that makes people do crazy things. A teenager that is created in a liberal environment, parents educating them but not locking them in their houses, being able to swear, to grow up, to make out eventually like normal people do may not do drugs because they don’t feel the need to.
      However, these kids from Disney were EXTREMELY pressured to be perfect, they couldn’t do things that normal people do, you see, making out in a car was already a problem to Joe. Their songs couldn’t have a swearing, they couldn’t be caught drunk. This is what MAKES them want to be wild and be themselves after a while. They couldn’t even speak for themselves, they had Media training, ready formulas. They were fake and plastic puppies. They were so deprived of having a normal life that they end up thinking like “Screw this, I’m gonna be me”, and they radicalize doing wild stuff because all this time they weren’t allowed to be them. It’s the exaggerated prohibition that causes this. If they didn’t leave with this pressure, maybe they wouldn’t be as wild as they are now. Plus, I highly doubt the kids from Nick don’t smoke weed or other drugs. Drugs are something very common on Hollywood, if you’re in the business eventually you’ll try it.

    • A Cat

      That generation of Disney Channel stars (Miley, Jonas Brothers, Selena, Demi) were all 14-15 when they grew inside the industry and made a name for themselves. Celebrities are never wild and rebellious when they first start out – it’s after a few years when they experience the pressure of the industry and are tempted with all of the shady stuff like drugs and whatnot. Imagine trying to find out who you are while pretending to be someone else for the rest of the world.

  • d

    lol I read the whole thing :p

  • Sir Doctor of TARDIS

    i’m just so proud of him…now people will start to say “he wants fame” but we all know that’s a lie, ’cause so many life have been ruined (and will be) because of all that Disney and teen-stars shit and it has to end.. someone had to talk, i’m so prud it was joet

  • JJ456

    So who is the lucky fan that got to make out with him during a whole movie? I’m so jealous!

  • kdelly

    see I was one of those kids that like the jonas boys, I was also a kid who desperately wants to be disney famous, but they wouldn’t have been able to handle me because i’m a strong will bitch and NO ONE would be allowed to walk all over me

  • Poe

    So Taylor Swift writes a whole song about how supposedly Camilla Belle is some kind of bed hopping slut, yet here Joe is basically saying that his nearly year long relationship with Camilla was non-sexual and that he lost his V-card AFTER they broke up. Kind of makes Swift look like an idiot now, doesn’t it?

  • threelittlebirds

    wow, this really opens up the eyes on how much disney controls their clients.

  • JJ456

    One more thing, I’d LOVE to hear his lost solo album.

  • k

    Although, appreciate his honesty. This interview really disappoints me and I feel he is just complaining about his fame.

  • gnnj

    so that means change for the children foundation is fake too

  • Kat

    Not surprised with anything said in this article. Glad their finally telling the whole truth though, and are able to no longer hide behind the whole disney bull-shit.

  • Daniella

    Love this<3. I don't like the fact that Disney always try to change artists and repress them of being who they really are.

    So Brenda song was the girl he used to hook up with.in the car?

    • Stephanie

      who knows

    • Chelsea

      No it cant be there’s pics of them in cars Joe said there was no pics of him with the Disney girl

      • JJ456

        Where are the pics?

        • Chelsea

          All over google just put in Joe Jonas and Brenda Song ull get pics n videos it was on TMZ a few yrs bk

  • Daniella

    Loved this<3. I don't like the fact that Disney always try to change artists and repress them of being who they really are.

  • ety

    I respect him to have a ball and come out saying it.

  • emjonas23

    I’m sure that a lot of us who just read the whole article were totally speechless now. Just W-O-W. I never thought that Joe would do this. But I do thank him for being so honest. He had been holding back all this issues for all of his life. From being a role model as a Disney artist, to his past relationships, to the sh*ts that is happening behind the cam. And now, he just let it all out. I know, and he knows that he can’t please anyone especially for doing this. Naming names was surely hard to do, but he have to because it’s the truth. Guys smoking weeds is really a turn off for me. After knowing that Joe (my DREAM GUY ever since 2007) did that in an early age, I don’t know but it didn’t turned me off. Rather, him being honest made me to love him even more. I WILL FOREVER LOVE YOU JOSEPH ADAM MILLER JONAS! <3

  • jb

    honestly, if i say i didnt know all these things were happening to Joe, i would be lying.. maybe i didnt know exact details but still.. i always knew he was underpresure.. but it was a bit easier for him,because he had his brothers with him, who had his back…thats why Miley and Demi broken down,they were all alone in it..that’s why Justin is breaking too..they are all people like us,and they all need that simple things we need.. love, friendship, just someone they can trust..someone who would care and will be there for them,and not look at them like money making machines…fame and money wont bring happiness..

  • cassandra

    This could of been a book,wow.

  • Katie

    So many people are saying they’re so proud of him for writing this, can I ask why? Literally all he is doing here is throwing the blame on others.

    • lols

      No. He’s not throwing the “blame”, I mean what “blame”? Is it his fault, for wanting to live a normal teenage life, sometimes getting drunk, hooking up and having sex? Is it his fault that he wanted to show people who he was instead of speaking formulated opinions made by Disney? He’s just exposing the harshness that they lived while on Disney. He’s just making the favor to his fans by letting them know that so many things about them were fake and because they had a contract, there was nothing they could do about it. It makes them look more human, it makes them look like a real band.

  • Sterre

    I don’t think it’s classy at all to sell out Demi and Miley like that, saying first he doesn’t want to shade anyone, then continues to tell they were the ones ‘responsible’ for bringing him into weed etc. He could’ve just said, yes I did weed and I wasn’t alone in that. But I stopped now. I mean, that would’ve covered it all.

    Good for him though to tell how he feels, yet it also seems like a cheap sell-out that will provide him publicity and money.

    • Chelsea

      He prob asked them or because of them saying now that they smoked it in the past that he felt they wouldn’t have care if he said it

    • queenofshade

      he knew miley wouldn’t care, and idky anyone is surprised joe shaded demi like it’s about time imo.

  • Sandra

    First, I think this article could be fake, well it really seems fake and fishy (waiting for Joe to confirm or deny), second, what a liar! I remember him being all over Demi back in 2010/11 and never leaving his hands of her and now he says that he only wanted to help her… in dating her? Yeah right! He actually wanted to be with Demi and not only that… how come he decides now, to open up about this stuff… oh and he found someone he cares for in Blanda? WTF, he seems always so bored out with her or like he doesn’t want to be near her!

    This article doesn’t make sense at all… Joe needs to come out and explain but besides that, I have even more respect for him for speaking up!
    He’s finally taking Demi’s path and talking openly about the sh*t going behind the scenes!

    • A Cat

      “I remember him being all over Demi back in 2010/11 and never leaving his
      hands of her and now he says that he only wanted to help her… in
      dating her? Yeah right! He actually wanted to be with Demi…”

      PR, girl. PR. Joe truly did care for Demi. Their friendship was genuine but he just didn’t feel that being anything more than that was the best route to take their relationship. He kinda admitted it was partly for publicity and to promote their Camp Rock movie — people adored the idea of them dating so Disney snatched up the opportunity to get some press around their stars.

  • Anon

    I AM GOING TO ASSUME JOE GOT MONEY FOR THIS INTERVIEW. I THINK HE WROTE THIS AND SOLD HIS STORY TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER LIKE ALL STARS DO WHEN THEIR ON THERE WAY DOWN. WILL THERE BE A BOOK TO FOLLOW?DEAR GOD….

  • Sam

    JOE & DEMI DID IT BTW ;)

  • Chelsea

    Since 2007 my mom would say Joe is the black sheep of his family and that he had that stripper quality about him and I could see Joe doing all this stuff. Anyone remember when a member of the Jonas Group said Joe had a kid and she was later fired and paid money to shut up…..I think there’s more dirty on Joe.

  • Cici

    Just wow. Man Now I’m ready for Demi, Selena, Miley, & the rest of JB to tell all! This is such a reality check, and slightly heartbreaking. Simply for the fact that when I was 15-16 I swore up & down I was going to marry them all, and that they were the most perfect boys in the world, lol. They were the exception, but the reality is they were just acting out that double life. They are still good boys, just NORMAL good boys. & it is nice to see that. I’m glad he cleared up that miley has been a pot head for 6 or so years now. I wonder what made him out that? Probably just letting everyone know that Disney is deceiving as fuck…it’s sad. We all wanted to be that disney kid at one time. & The ther disney star he was hooking up with is Brenda Song IMO. That girl…just that girl.

  • KENDALL

    LMAO at him on being pressured by 2 girls to smoke weed!!! What a pussy. And he still is today. His career sucks and is going nowhere. So now he decides to talk about this. Wonder how much he got paid? Way to throw your buds under the bus dick head.

    It’s funny how some of you are praising him for saying what he said about disney, but when Miley talked about it you threw shade at her. Hypocrites!!!!!

  • anon

    Does Joe not care that Wilmer is his friend? He’s talking about his good friends girlfriend? How will Joe even look Wilmer in the eyes again? And he’s cool with Demi too? How will he look her in the eyes again. It’s not being honest, there’s a line between being honest and being rude.

    • queenofshade

      demi has no problem talking about being coked up at 16 so I doubt she’d be upset by this…

  • anon

    And notice how he never said he’s in love with Blanda?

  • anon

    Why didnt he throw his douchebag brother Nick under a bus?

    • Anna

      Because you just assume nick is a douchebag and he probably really isn’t, just more serious than the other two brothers. He didn’t throw anyone under the bus either, I’m sure he asked permission before he said anything about Demi/Miley.

  • anon

    It all makes sense now. Demi’s songs Really Dont Care “second guessing cause you should it hit that” Joe’s bitter he didnt have sex with Demi

  • anon

    I hope Wilmer punches Joe like Demi punches Shorty. Man fight!

    • JJ456

      I’m sure Wilmer knows everything.

      • anon

        Knows everything about what? I dont think he knew Joe was going to talk about his girlfriend publicly and say such things. I can tell you he’s probably not happy about it.

        • Cici

          It’s not even that serious. Nothing was said that we didn’t already know..or Demi even admitting herself. Chill out.

          • anon

            I think what he said was rude and her bandmate agreed with me. So probably Wilmer is not happy about it either. He should have thrown Nick under a bus, not Demi/Miley. His career is basically over now. He should have learned from his buddy Wilmer, when Wilmer talked about his exes and how he banged them his career stalled for a couple of years.

          • Cici

            Joe did not sit there and talk about who he banged & etc. He left it up to the imagination. He used his sexual experiences as letting people know he was not a disney robot, that he in fact was normal and had to hide it for so long. We still don’t know for a fact who he has had sex with because he did not out their names. His brothers werent thrown into this because they are his BROTHERS. & Since Miley & Demi have already made it clear they use drugs, where was the issue and saying he was once apart of it? There isn’t one.

          • anon

            I just dont think what he said was nice. Maybe he could have worded it differently because it just came across as douchy. Especifically the way he talked about his relationship with Demi. Like omg I felt so trapped dating this hot girl with issues. But I stayed with her because I needed to take care of her boohhooo. Anyways I dont think her family, friends and boyfriend are happy about it. And I dont think Demi feels good about what he said either.

          • Cici

            I have a feeling the names mentioned knew he was going to put this out before he did it. I think everyone will be just fine.

          • queenofshade

            the world does not revolve around demi’s feelings, joe has every right to tell his side of the story just like demi did.

          • JJ456

            Rude or not, he was telling the TRUTH, his truth and that’s what counts and for that he gets my respect! Honesty is the best way to go- and I think this is the main thing we can take from his article. Living a lie is no fun, even if it is for fame & money!

    In this interview thingy Joe Jonas says he lost his virginity when he was 20 years old which was in 2010 which is when camp rock 2 came out which is when he was dating Demi Lovato which means Joe Jonas lost his virginity to Demi Lovato ! .-. Joe and Demi had sex.

      Did you read it therey were dating but not really he was there becasue he didnt want to abandon her while she was so stressed out

    • gbhgh

      sorry but joe jonas was 20 in 2009 not in 2010 get your facts straight

      • Guest

        Actually Joe was 20 years old in earlier 2010 until his birthday month on August 15, 2010 where he turned 21 years old. Demi and Joe broke up around April or May, so he was 20 years old then.

    • ghjkk

      no it was ashley who lost his virginity not demi becuase joe jonas never loved her it was publicity

  • Valentina Paz Pamies Crema

    yay one more thing to add up to my bucketlist, smoke weed with joe :)

  • Cici

    Him saying Ashley was his first serious relationship means sex was involved. Obviously. Any of my relationships previous to the one I gave myself away in, which is my current relationship, i do not consider serious or anything of that nature.

    • ashleyofcourse

      well no. other factors can constitute a serious relationship. some people are abstinent but still have serious relationships. and even for those who arent abstinent have said several times that it is possible to have a non sexual relationship that is serious/meaningful.

      • Cici

        True.

  • Cici

    I think all of the ex Disney stars should do a tell all. Put a book together & expose the shit out of them! Best seller right there.

  • jemi4lyfe

  • anon

      Am I the only one that find it creepy that Demi is dating a Joe clone? and someone who is Joe’s BFF?

      • anon

        No, maybe she just has a type? I like dark haired guys like Joe and Wilmer too. Plus Adam Levine etc. Also Joe became friends with Wilmer way after he was dating Demi.

    If I’m honest, I think Disney isn’t as good without Walt Disney, everything was so much better when he was alive, there were no “pushing kids to do this or that” back then, or is it just me?

    • ashleyofcourse

      i feel ya.
      but lets remember when it was walts world, they only delt with cartoons x’D
      but hey i read up on the disney world back when he was alive and they did indeed have drama back then as well. just a different sort of drama.

      • KRP

        yeah Walt was a Nazi sympathizer for a long time and didn’t allow Jewish people into Disneyland, He cleaned that shit up real quick when he learned what happend to the Jews in Europe.

    • M355

      It was Michael Eisner that made Disney the success that it is.

  • yeya

    I mean don’t get me wrong of course this guys “lilo, miley, demi, jb” had their own choice to say NO I don’t want to do this anymore, I think he didn’t want to be too honest, because they didn’t want to scape from the fame and money that Disney provided to them but also I’m thinkin what about their parents? why didn0t they said, hey let’s stop this, if you feel uncomfortable we can stop this, because in the end yes they had their choices but they were still kis, so both sides are fucked up parents, kids and the company…

  • yeya

    but what I cannot believe is that he’s making it look like he hated everything about the fame experience when he clearly didn’t, I mean look at concerts and videos, he liked it, maybe he hated the bussines thing but oh well

  • PerrieEdwards

    I remember so many magazines always said that they were so boring because of how clean they were, turns out it was just an image. I dont know what I was thinking back then lol I just believes everything, which made me love them so much, but honestly now that he is being so honest with everything it makes me understand why they had to break up

  • JJ456

    I knew Demi would be cool with it. I hope her fans (and sister) stop their witch hunt now.

  • JJ456

    Dylan Sprouse on Joe’s article:

    I read the article and I have a couple things to say. Most formally the idea that Disney and the corporations “gentrified them.”

    First, I think it’s bullshit that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney “NO”. Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame. Granted, Cole and I had been acting our entire lives, so we saw it as a means to an end (money making) rather than an opportunity to become successful.

    Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a “rigid structure to achievement”. It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalise the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST. Individuality is modernity’s most interesting trait regarding artwork and so so many talented individuals realize this. You do not have to become something else to be successful. Not only is it not too late for them to redefine themselves now, it was never too late.

    What that article felt like was: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, still shame on you.”

    My personal creed? “Fool me once, you’ll forever regret that decision.”

  • Lolz

    wowwwwww.
    what a mess of an interview.

    all that can be taken away from it is
    (a) Joe is just as much an ungrateful little cunt as he’s always been
    (b) he (obviously) fesses up to the whole purity ring sham they put on …and that his first time, all 2 minutes of it, was with A.Greene
    (c) he’s desperate for attention now that JB is no longer…trying WAY too fucking hard to look “badass” and be noticed.

    miley skanked it up at the VMA’s for her image change.
    Joe writes a piece of shit article about himself thats largely all over the place.

    :)

    • Nikki

      joe tried SO hard to act like a badass

      and failed so hard at it :(

    • Joann

      LMAO at “his first time, all two minutes of it”

      so true i bet hahahahaha :D

  • Marie

    is it just me, or was he trying a million times too hard to look “hard” to readers? like he’s some gangster badass who breaks rules or something lol

    calm yo tits down joe.
    JB broken up?? nobody cares now..

    #sadtruth

  • pily

    I wish nick and kevin have the balls to even reply his brother :/

    • m

      nick and kevin haven’t balls

    • JJ456

      Or at least support him. Frankie did.

      • pily

        They havent tweet anything :( only frankie…thats sad :(

  • Emmy

    I think most of this is total bullshit. There is no way Miley and Demi could’ve introduced him to weed when he was 17-18. They are a good 3 years younger than him. That’s pretty ridiculous. Also, I’m quite sure that Demi did not know him then…

  • Fallen Smith

    I think his mysterious “partner in crime” was Emily Osment.

    She had a song back in the day called
    “Lets be friends … (so we can make out) ” – according to Wikipedia : Emily has previously stated in an interview that “Let’s Be Friends” is about a complicated relationship she held with someone in 2009.

    And round that time, they were both filming their shows, her Disney contract was still intact.

    Soo if his “friend with benefit” thing in the car happened in 09, then it would make sense.

    • Emmy

      Nah, I’m quite sure it’s AJ Michalka.

  • thaís

    i am so happy because i’ve waited for this since 2008 i am so freaking happy thank you joe for making me have sure that i was not a fan of a fake band formed by fake people

  • Julia

    Aren’t interviews where some asks questions and another person answers? This seemed like he just talked at his interviewer or a voice recorder. If this is considered an interview, then what is journalism?

    As for people who consider this honest, the man no longer has a career so why not be associated with two still famous Disney princesses? Especially since those Disney princesses don’t want to be associated with Disney.

    He probably thinks he has street cred now.

  • k

    Now he can’t control Joe anymore because Joe is manipulated by another ambitious and opportunistic man/transgender (Blanda Eggenschwiler, a druggie and parasite who lives off Joe’s money)

  • k

    Papa Jonas is an abuser, bad father and ambitious. He’s such a monster

    Now he can’t control Joe anymore because Joe is manipulated by another ambitious and opportunistic man/transgender (Blanda Eggenschwiler, a druggie and parasite who lives off Joe’s money)

  • childhood=ruined

    I’m not even going to lie this whole interview and the way he spilled everything that had been happening really ruined my childhood. This is by far the most heartbreaking childhoodruiner ever

  • kirbs

    lol me and joe jonas lost our virginity at the same age woo hoo

  • Allie

    The purity ring- about someone saving themselves, just because someone famous was doing it?! What the hell! Why can’t you do things for you, not do what others do? Honestly, think…when is the last time you, yourself have totally done something completely original??
