Joe Jonas: I First Smoked Weed with Miley Cyrus & Demi Lovato

Joe Jonas: I First Smoked Weed with Miley Cyrus & Demi Lovato

Joe Jonas opens up about sex, drugs, and the Jonas Brothers breakup in this brand new piece he penned for Vulture.

Here’s what the 24-year-old singer had to share with the site:

On losing his virginity: “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.’”

On experimenting with pot: “The first time I smoked weed was with Demi [Lovato] and Miley [Cyrus]. 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.”

On his relationships: “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.”

On hooking up with fans: “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.”

    @karen: yeah, sounds more like he needs to go to confession rather that to the New York magazine

  • Annabelle

    The fact that Demi and Miley who were like 3 YEARS younger than him pressured him into smoking weed is hilarious! How do you get pressured into doing anything illegal by 14 year olds? Btw didn’t Miley and Demi hate each other at that time?? LOL

    @talia: From Joe himself: “When I was 20, I started dating Ashley Greene, and she was my first serious relationship.”

  • Mkhay

    LOL Trying to stay relevant

  • karly

    @Ashley: @Ashley: dude…i dont really care about any of these people…but as for the name dropping/weed thing, im not even a fan of hers and i know her favourite thing to do is “shock” everyone with her weed-smoking. it’s just a bunch of dumb kids so who cares?

  • Cri

    Wow. Someone is desperate to stay relevant.

  • Anna

    @lana: Um no he doesn’t read the article again. He said he dated demi, but didn’t want to break up with her because he wanted to be there for her since she was having such a hard time. He felt bad for her, he wasn’t a bad guy to her. Seriously, though why are you trying to make him look so bad.
    The fact that he was this honest about himself really says a lot about him and I mean that in a good way. Anyone on here who thinks him talking about this stuff is bad and wrong needs a wake up call, this is very typical young adult behavior that he described. Don’t act like he is a bad guy for being young and wild. Most people wouldn’t be this open about their lives and I think it is GREAT that he is. He did some stupid stuff when he was a teenager, who hasn’t?
    Hypocritical, judgmental, gossip site lurkers. GOSH

  • Cri

    He totally lost his virginity to Ashley Greene. I mean, it’s not a coincidence that he said he lost his virginity when he was 20 and then goes and says “When I was 20, I started dating Ashley Greene…”
    I also remember very specifically that he took his purity ring off while he was dating her.

  • Jasmine

    Lmfao okay does anyone really care? The Jonases are completely irrelevant.

  • Destiny

    Haha ! I’ve been waiting for this interview for YEARS ! I can’t believe .. actually I can believe that I fell for all that purity christian family bull. Looks and Managers go a LONG way. Fooled me. RIP JB Band.

    Joe Jonas is a jackass. Some people praise him for his “honesty” but if you want to tell “your” story then talk about what YOU did not what you want people to know that others may or may not have done. Neve\r once yet when Demi told her story have I wever heard her say anythingt about Joe & his obvious drug problkems – she did not drag him & only spoke of her own issues – the same goes for Miley she has not told things about friends or associates – when she said weed was better thnan booze she never once said anything about anyone else. I’m so sick of these celebs especikally the jeallous females tthat always feel the need to say negvative things about other female celebs in a oh so “innocent” way – you konw they are only doing so in an attempt to make pepole see how “much better” they are than the one they just “shaded”. Hats off to Miley & Demi for not shading anyone.


    knew it they only wore the purity rings so fans and their parents could like them and but their sh!t…..I am sure this little story he told is just half of what the truth really is…btw he should cut his hair he reminds of a terrorist

  • Nickie

    Joe has gone “Batshit” crazy. Jonas brothers have gone fishing and baiting their hooks with a ex-celebrity tabloid news hoping for a bite of attention. I’m sorry Joe, but you and yours brothers are no longer relevant. It’s time to move on.

  • Tom Cat

    I would be willing to bet that all the negative comments about Joe Jonas are from crazy Taylor Swift fans.


    @Tom Cat: hahahahahahahahaa your comment as well as your opinion are by far that most irrelevant shit I have every read
    really??????? Taylor Swift?????no one gives a sh>t about her or their relationship>>>>>>suck it up and live with the fact that no ONE wants them anymore aNd could care less about him, his brother and his OTHER brother>>>>>>time to move on and become the next Hilary Duff

  • eh

    there was no need to name drop.. He could have just said that had weed without using anyones name.. he just looks like an idiot and it acing immature. I mean it’s you’re own amn fault for listening to 14 year olf girls.. idiot. I’m so disappointed in that

  • Elena

    I think the weed is making him a little schizo. Messed up article.

  • Phil 3-19

    I can’t even begin to imagine how his parents feel about all this. How did he go from being a church kid to THIS? And even if he did, why “glory in your shame” and broadcast it to the press?

  • haha

    DIRTY LAUNDRY anyone?

  • nana

    WTF! Dam this boy can spill, is he bisexual to? dam. Hes talking talking talking I hope hes saying the truth and not making crap up to get back at his brothers. don’t they come from a church family? this will destroy them! Dam and hes a douche for real just like taylor and demi have said. SMH Disney its time for you to close that stupid channel look at your creations

  • TomCat


    Looks like another Bat Shit Crazy Taylor Swift fan trying to hide who they really are.You’re busted. Time to come out of the closet. HaHaHaHaHaHa.

  • Vomit Comment


  • NOT

    @Anna: not everyone makes mistakes as a teenager and if they do they man up and say it not pretend to be someone there not only to have fans and parents which means $$$$ so they can later have a tell all when they are no longer famous
