This weekend the world was gifted with a long confessional in New York magazine from Joe Jonas. The 24-year-old formerly in the Jonas Brothers — they split up this fall over creative differences — dished about everything from smoking pot for the first time with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, hooking up with fans, and how coming back to a hotel room to find a groupie waiting there is actually really annoying.

Squeaky-clean teen idol Joe Jonas is the last person we’d expect to have a dead on Situation impersonation.

Definitely watch this one. [Popdust]
Don’t tell his ex-girlfriends, but Joe Jonas has his sights set on being more than just a mere musician. See, he wants to be a musician/actor, with a side order of producer. Joe told E! Online that he will be producing and starring in a passion project that doesn’t of yet have a name. In it, he will play a “young man who is finding himself.” And this bears no relationship to reality, people. Keep reading »
Oh Joe Jonas, you’re all growed up, and fixing your burning gaze off in the distance, at some attractive lass or other … just like Enrique Iglesias? Do pop stars go to school to perfect this look? They must. Keep reading »
