Joe Jonas Says Miley Cyrus & Demi Lovato Pressured Him to Smoke Weed!

Live At Much With The Jonas Brothers in Toronto on July 17, 2013

 

According to Joe Jonas, he was initially pressured to smoke weed by fellow Disney stars Miley Cyrus an Demi Lovato. Joe reveals that he did try it when both Miley and Demi convinced him to give it a go. He called the experience “all right” but admits he doesn’t smoke that frequently any more:

“The first time I smoked weed was with Demi (Lovato) and Miley (Cyrus)… 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.”

Joe believes that those who start out their careers with Disney, such as Miley and even himself, often end up rebelling because they reach a certain limit and try to push against the system that has been created for them. He believes that although Disney likes people with big personalities to begin with, it often backfires as the kids become teens:

 “Being a part of the Disney thing for so long will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever. Eventually, I hit a limit and thought, S**ew all this, I’m just going to show people who I am. I think that happened to a lot of us. Disney kids are spunky in some way, and I think that’s why Disney hires them… Five, six, 10 years later, they’re like, ‘Oh! What do we do?’ Come on, guys. You did this to yourselves.”

Joe also reveals he was caught drinking while underage and he found it to be a big ordeal at the time. He admits that when he turned 21, he had an alcohol related accident:

 “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.”
