Miley Cyrus was apparently responsible for talking Joe Jonas into trying weed.
Longtime fans of the recently-defunct Jonas Brothers are probably more than a little upset with the “Wrecking Ball” singer right about now. The musician revealed all sorts of deviant behavior in a recent essay entitled “Joe Jonas: My Life As a Jonas Brother.” The tell-all appears in the December 9 issue of New York Magazine.
In addition to discussing getting drunk for the first time, Joe opens up about the time he smoked weed with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Although the Sonny with a Chance star reportedly put those days behind him, the same doesn’t ring true with Cyrus.
“The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. 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 Jonas explained in the essay.
As for his first experience with alcoholic beverages: “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 in a while.”
ABC News points out that this recently admission contradicts some information the middle Jonas brother dropped during a recent interview. When rumors about his heroin addiction started making the rounds online, Joe said, “Never had a problem with drugs and never done drugs. I’m good… happy and healthy.”
Everyone knows that Miley Cyrus isn’t a stranger to the ways of marijuana. In fact, the “We Can’t Stop” singer recently smoked a joint onstage at the 2013 MTV European Music Awards. Although you could hear the collective gasp coming from certain members of society, the singer insists she wasn’t trying to offend anyone with the stunt.
“Some people I think overthink stuff so much — that’s not why I do it. I just did it mostly because I knew the fans in Amsterdam would love it and they started going crazy when I did it, so I knew the whole place would go super wild,” Miley told Capital FM after the incident.
She added, “I don’t care what the media says because I don’t Google myself. So I don’t know what they say and I don’t care because it’s a bunch of people that maybe one time in their life they dreamt about being a journalist and then they became what they are.”
