Disney may not be too happy about this one. Joe Jonas gets candid with New York magazine, detailing his life as a “Disney kid,” opening up about his relationships with Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene and admitting to smoking marijuana with Demi and Miley Cyrus.
Starting off with what it was really like being a part of the Disney brand, from intense media training to the ban on anything remotely sexual. “Being a part of a company like that comes with certain expectations,” Joe says. “There were the moments when I’d walk into my hotel room only to find a girl I didn’t know standing there. We were kids working with Disney, so finding a girl in our hotel room didn’t feel like an open invitation.”

His relationship with fellow Disney star Demi “meant a lot to the fans” and while Joe says they only dated for a month, he personally saw her struggles that lead her to entering rehab. “I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse,” he says. “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.”
While the entire article is like one big confession, Joe opening up about experimenting with drugs with fellow Disney stars is probably the juiciest part of it all. “The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18,” he explains. “They kept saying, ‘Try it! Try it!’ so I gave it a shot, and it was all right. I was caught drinking when I was 16 or 17, and I thought the world was going to collapse.”
Joe continues, “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 and while.”
