Joe Jonas recently wrote an article all about what it was like being a Disney
product kid. He talked about how Miley introduced him to weed. He also said that Disney executives didn’t want him to ever grow up. From his NY Times article, via Us:
I had to shave every day because they wanted me to pretend like I was 16 when I was 20 (when the show was done, I cut my hair off and grew as much of a beard as I could).
Fellow Disney alum Dylan Sprouse of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody is calling shenanigans on Mr. Joe Jonas. Actually, to be more accurate, he’s calling bullshit. The 21-year-old wrote on his Tumblr (sorry but LOL, Tumblr),
I think it’s bullshit that they [The Jonas Brothers] were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted to, they could have told Disney ‘NO.’ [My brother and fellow co-star] Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame. Granted, Cole and I had been acting our entire lives, so we saw it as a means to an end (money making) rather than an opportunity to become successful.
Sure, Dylan. And which executive/producer/handler is holding your strings? You puppet! You Pinocchio! PULL DA STRINGSSS! PULL DA STRINGSSS!
Yo, any day I can work in an Ed Wood reference into a Jonas Brothers piece is a day I can feel great about myself. Oh and Mr. Sprouse isn’t done, he goes on:
Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a ‘rigid structure to achievement.’ It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalize the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST. Individuality is modernity’s most interesting trait regarding artwork and so so many talented individuals realize this.
You do not have to become something else to be successful. Not only is it not too late for them to redefine themselves now, it was never too late. What that article felt like was: ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, still shame on you.’
Somebody knows some big words!

Joe Jonas says Miley Cyrus (and Demi Lovato) were the first people to convince him to smoke weed, at the of age 17 or 18. Of course Miley was, it’s her goddamn favorite thing in the world, after teddy bears and short shorts. Mr. Jonas let everything go in an essay he wrote for New York Magazine, titled “Joe Jonas: My Life As a Jonas Brother.” Here’s a snippet via USA Today:
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. Now I appreciate wine or a vodka-soda at the end of the day every once in a while.
LOL at the appreciation of a vodka-soda. Yeah, what a very sophisticated palette you have, Mr. Joe Jonas.
Of course this is coming from someone currently working on a SoCo lime, so…yeah.
What’s your favorite drink after a long day? Or do you prefer Miley’s substance of choice?

Are we all doing okay since the Jonas Brothers broke up? Have you been crying into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s every night as you listen to *insert the name of one of their songs here because I can’t name a single one without Google* on repeat? Well, there was a lot of talk that a huge part of the reason behind the brothers’ decision to go their separate ways was Joe‘s alleged heroin problem. However, Joe has finally (weeks later) spoken out against this, insisting that he’s never tried the drug in his life.
“It’s ridiculous! We’re not saying anything for two or three weeks and I’m a drug addict!”
What upset him even more is that his girlfriend, Blanda Eggenschwiler, was also dragged into the rumors. “It’s obviously not true. I’ve never touched heroin in my life. Neither has my girlfriend,” he said. “It’s hilarious to me, but also frustrating as well. It pissed me off when it’s about my girl and even about myself.”
At one point, he said, people even approached him personally about it. “I was walking down the street and people are asking me if they can give me a hug and how rehab is,” says Joe. “I’m like, ‘You tell me because I’ve never been.’ “
Apparently he didn’t speak out on this right away because he was upset about the Jonas Brothers breaking up and he needed to “clear his head”… or does he mean “detox in rehab”? I’m not sure about this one. I don’t know enough about Joe Jonas (thank God) to know whether or not there’s any truth to the heroin rumours, but considering how some of these other Disney stars have ended up over the years, I wouldn’t put it past him.
What do you think – vicious rumour, or has Joe Jonas been smoking some black tar shit?

The Jonas Brothers are a hot ass mess. The brothers “took a break” a little over a year ago but then got back together and planned a tour, which they’ve since cancelled amidst rumours of a break-up as well as claims that Joe Jonas may or may not be a drug addict. Allegedly! However, now Joe himself has reached out to fans on Twitter, asking that they hold tight while the group tries to get it together, whatever that even means:
please hold while we get our shit together.

Is this code for “please hold while I go to rehab and detox from heroin use”? Who can say? But also, is anyone REALLY still holding their breath for this group? Was anyone ever, besides Disney kids? I’m just so confused – I don’t think I know a single Jonas Brothers song (and I’m happy about that, so don’t be putting any in the comments or anything!)

Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas used to date back in the day until he unceremoniously dumped her out of nowhere because it was his “choice” to do so. While Demi was mad at him for a long time, she says they’re totally tight now! It’s not at all awkward or strange… except for the times it is, of course.
From ABC’s Nightline News:
For a few months in 2010, Lovato famously dated Joe Jonas of the famed Jones Brothers. While their relationship and eventual break-up made them a constant paparazzi target, Lovato said the two are now friends — Jonas even tweeted congrats to Lovato for “Demi” this week — but it wasn’t always so easy.
“When you go through heartbreaks and things like that, you always have in mind somebody,” she said. “It’s like when you hear a song on the radio that reminds you of somebody, you’re going to be reminded. But keeping that in mind … it’s a delicate balance.
“We were in a relationship and we broke up, and at one point, I was really mad at him,” Lovato continued. “Now, I can, fortunately, say, that him, and his brother Nick, have always been there for me, and are literally family, and like brothers … we have a great friendship. And we may not be as close as we used to be, but that’s OK.”
