(PCM) Former Jonas Brothers member Joe Jonas has been stirring up quite a bit of controversy with his recent tell-all essay for New York Magazine. In the incredibly revealing essay Joe opens up about his sex life, drug use, issues with Disney and more.
He revealed that he made the decision to take off his purity ring at the age of 20 and that is when he lost his virginity most likely when he was dating actress Ashley Greene. He also went on to say that he smoked marijuana for the first time with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato and received quite a bit of peer pressure from the two of them to try it at the time. He wrote: ”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.”
He goes on to say that Disney put a ton of pressure on him and his brothers to keep a squeaky-clean image and they received a ton of media training over the years to help them find a way around difficult or uncomfortable questions from the press. He claims “Playing dumb is the best way of getting out of anything. Being a part of the Disney thing for so long will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever.”
Many are saying that Joe went too far in his tell-all, as he also shared stories about hooking up with fans and sharing his idea that Disney’s formula for making stars is incredibly unappealing.
