Joe Jonas is finally opening up about smoking, drinking and sex in a very candid essay.
In the interview with Vulture , Jonas credits Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato for pressuring him into smoking marijuana. “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," he said.
In the revealing interview, Jonas, who wore a promise ring touting his celibacy along with his two brothers, revealed that he lost his virginity at 20 and recalls getting drunk at just 16 years old.
“I was caught drinking when I was 16 or 17, and I thought the world was going to collapse," he said. "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.”
As for the boys breaking up as a group, Jonas said, "The whole situation was breaking us up as a family, and we ultimately felt like we were holding each other back."
