Joe Jonas is officially having a moment. The middle Jo Bro gave the most in-depth, revealing interview of his life for the Dec. 9 issue of New York Magazine, and among his many revelations was the fact that Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato pressured him to smoke weed as a teenager.
Holy smoke! Joe Jonas, 24, just blew the lid off his years as a Jonas Brother in a very revealing interview with New York magazine. Stories about losing his virginity and hooking up with fans will undoubtedly make headlines, but we’re still reeling over the fact that fellow Disney alums Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, both 21, pressured him to smoke weed!
Joe Jonas: Demi And Miley Pressured Me To Smoke Weed
Joe doesn’t directly address the rehab rumors that circulated after the Jonas Brothers announced their separation in his revealing NY Mag interview, but he does discuss his relationship with drugs and alcohol. And while we all knew that Miley was a fan of the ganja, we had no idea that she pressured her Disney chums into trying it!
“The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley,” Joe says. “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.”
Yep, sounds like our Miley!
Joe Jonas: “I Fell Down A Flight Of Stairs” From Drinking
Joe also claims that he doesn’t indulge in alcohol much these days, despite evidence to the contrary:
“I was caught drinking when I was 16 or 17, and I thought the world was going to collapse,” he says. “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.”
Hey, we’d want to unwind with a glass of wine (or three) if we were living under Mickey Mouse’s rule for a decade, too.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised about Miley and Demi?
