So to promote his new, super steamy music video Body Moves, Joe Jonas did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit yesterday and got super candid and honest – much to our surprise. Here are some new things that we learnt about the former Disney star.
1) He lost his virginity at 21 years old… to Ashley Greene.
“I lost my virginity to this girl named Ashley. You can probably just Google it. It’s pretty easy to figure out. I dated a girl named Ashley, so just Google it to figure out which Ashley that is. It’s quite the great story because I didn’t have any condoms, so I went to our drummer, Jack’s room, who was my roommate at the time and I demolished his room looking for them. Found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished because I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids.”
2) Yeah, he’s embarrassed by Camp Rock.
“My dance moves in Camp Rock were so terrible. I thought I was killing the game, too. Actually, Tyler The Creator posted it one day and I was like, “Oh, cool! Tyler thinks my dance moves are sick!” and I realized he was just totally calling me out for being a total d*ckhead and the way I danced, but respectfully. I think my flat iron hair and my squeaky voice are a little embarrassing. Also, I watch it now and realize it was so many years ago, it is really bad quality. It just reminds me of how much older I am now. I’m 27.
1-10 rating of how embarrassing Camp Rock is to me now, 10 being the most and 1 being the least, I’m going to give it a solid 8. When I see old merchandise from Camp Rock days or somebody is like, “Oh my god, CampRock is my jam”, I really have a hard time believing them.”
3) He lives with his brother, Nick Jonas (and sometimes steals his clothes).
“Living with my brother Nick is great because it is actually like living alone. We decided to move in together because he was out of a lease and wanted to find a new place and he convinced me by saying, “You’re really bored with your place, right?” and I was like… I guess. So, I moved out and then he forgot to tell me his lease wasn’t up for six months, so I was without a house for a little while. Just floating around. Then we found a place in the valley of California and it’s nice because he’s been traveling and I’m home alone all the time. I get this nice sized house, just chilling. Also, when he comes into town, he came into town this past weekend, our housekeeper put a bunch of his new clothes in my closet and he left town to go finish filming Jumanji, so I don’t have to go shopping. I just have a bunch of Nick’s free new clothes now.”
4) He also answered the question, “Is it true you’re the Jonas Bro that’s hanging the most meat in his skinny jeans?”
“I like to think so. Although, it’s not often that I’m in a locker room or shower with my brothers, so I couldn’t really tell you. But, I’d like the Internet to believe that I’m still killin’ it.”
5) Yes, he saw a therapist and didn’t speak to his brothers for a while when the Jonas Brothers broke up.
“When it happened, we were focusing on going on another tour and we had plans to hit the road and do what we had been doing for a while. Nick brought it to the table that he wanted to focus on different things, like acting and doing music on his own. At first, it was really shocking to me because it was kind of all I had known was the Jonas Brothers, forever. So, I was pretty mad and confused because, I was like, I’ve been putting so much time and effort into this for so long and now I just have to stop and figure out what’s next. And maybe I was a little envious of Nick because I knew that he already had kind of a leg up and had plans to work on music already and he was creating and producing. So, I was probably mad at him, too. I remember kind of losing it a little bit and I didn’t speak to anybody. I closed myself off and we cancelled the tour and didn’t really know what was going on. We were honestly trying to figure out if it was the right decision to call it off or do a final tour or final goodbye, but I think, for all of us, we did it for ten years and it was a lot of time doing one thing. After taking some time away, I realized that maybe I could start to travel and do some other stuff. I really took a long time to figure it out and I wasn’t even creating. I just traveled and tried to really find myself because I was doing this Jonas Brothers thing for so damn long. Now, I think that I’m really glad I took so much time away because I’m able to find myself and create music that I’m proud of. I started a little bit of acting and opened a restaurant. I was trying to see if maybe there was a different career path that I would go into. Ultimately, I realized that I really enjoy the music stuff, so that’s really where I found home.”
6) And no, he didn’t have a drug problem
“That was all false.”
7) He had a boner (sort of) while filming the Body Moves video
“There was definitely some half chubbing going on during the video. I wouldn’t say a full blown boner, but I would say a haflie. I mean it’s kind of hard not to in that situation especially when you’re trying to be intimate, and also they put us in an elevator, me and Charlotte McKinney who I’m sure Reddit is very familiar with. They put her in an elevator with me and then they had kind of a hidden camera filming this whole time, and I had a great time doing the video.”
BTW, a couple of Victoria Secret’s angels also grooved to Body Moves in lingerie. Watch here.
8) He’s hooked up with a fan before (although, said fan might have been a celebrity)
“Of course I have… Ultimately, I hope the person I’m into or date would like the music I create. Are you asking if I’ve hooked up with somebody that’s been to one show before? Yes.”
