Nick & Joe Jonas On Staying Brothers But Not 'The Jonas Brothers'

(Radio.com) It's been over two weeks and Joe Jonas is still being asked about his confession to New York Magazine. You know, the one where he revealed the secrets of his Jonas Brothers past, including telling some very un-Disney about some of the network's biggest past stars.

"There's no like master plan behind it or anything like that," he recently told Radio.com of the interview. "It was just stuff I wanted to kind of speak about."

In the piece, Joe talks about the first time he smoked weed — with Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus when he was 17 — and makes mention of a certain Disney starlet who he used to hook up with, choosing to keep her name a secret.

The middle brother also shared with the magazine what it was like working with Disney — exciting, also stressful — and talked about his views on religion, specifically those celibacy rings he and his brothers wore that Joe says often dominated the conversation surrounding JoBros. These are things he probably wouldn't have been able to reveal had the Jonas Brothers not called it quits in October.

"I think it was kind of a fun, relieving way of doing that," Joe said about finally getting those things off his chest. "It's stuff you can't necessarily put in a song…It was fun to kind of express to people my journey."

Backstage with his younger brother Nick at Chicago radio station B96′s (a Radio.com station) Jingle Bash concert this past weekend, where the brothers — sans Kevin — would later treat the crowd to a surprise set, Joe spoke about the mixed reaction the article has gotten from his peers.

While Lovato — who dated Joe for a month in 2011 — tweeted her support, other stars like Dylan Sprouse defended growing up Disney. Sprouse, who along with twin brother Cole starred on the show Suite Life from 2005 to 2011, wrote on his Tumblr, "I think it's bulls*** that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted to, they could have told Disney 'NO.'" more on this story
