JOE JONAS

“For so many years I had a lot of cooks in the kitchen and other members of bands that I was working with. This was the first time that I was really able to say, ‘I want to create something on my own and see what this could be.’”

As rites of passage go, popstar evolution comes with a high casualty rate. Joe Jonas was born in 1989, yet he’s sashaying past “the 27 club” with a litany of chart-tracking hits, a supermodel ex-girlfriend, and a jet-set lifestyle. But it’s the omissions that stand out – no arrests, no drug overdoses, weapons charges, near-fatal accidents involving swimming pools… Yet if you’ve been paying attention there’s a liberation taking place for Joe Jonas – an emergence of a real person behind all the layers of expectation and managed identity. After years of faithful service as Disney’s golden child – the purity ring-clad proponent of abstinence and youthful faith – it’s not surprising that somewhere along the way the real Joe Jonas was a bit obscured, his identity folded in to all the things he was expected to be. But there was more to Jonas than he was encouraged to reveal: a character with edges that didn’t quite fit into the center of the Venn diagram where Christian, lead singer in a family boy band, and Disney-star overlap.

The singer, 27, rose to fame in Disney family pop group The Jonas Brothers. He is now frontman with DNCE, who had a hit with Cake By The Ocean

How would you describe DNCE’s sound?

We’re inspired by funk music such as Earth Wind And Fire and The Bee Gees and bands like The Beatles — iconic bands but with quirky lyrics.

Do you know what the band’s new single is yet?

We haven’t announced it but I’m thrilled about people hearing it.

Is it going to be another saucy number?

I’d like to think so. We’ve been working on music that’s more of the same.

Joe Jonas is seen on the cover for the October issue of Notion Magazine, available now!

Joe talked about how touring with DNCE is different than when he toured with his brothers, how is pervious music was filtered among other things!

Check out some of the interview and photoshoot below!

On how touring with DNCE is different than Jonas Brothers tours: “Now being older, there’s new experiences that I get to have, or just as an adult, like touring and traveling…you go out for a few drinks after the show. That’s just so different already than what I am used to – getting on the tour bus and going to bed or watching a movie. It was all exciting and good but these experiences now, on my own, on the road, its really great.”

On getting caught watching porn for the first time: “I would use my address to log into the websites, and I did this for seven days straight. A month later – and by the way, my dad was a pastor at the time – for a week or two straight there was a postcard with a naked woman on it saying ‘Come join us again Joe’ or ‘We really miss you’ or ‘You naughty boy, come visit us again.’”

On how the Jonas Brothers music was filtered: “Hollywood Records were under Disney…and obviously just the age we were, we had to be careful with the certain things we wrote and said…We couldn’t be too sexual or romantic in certain ways. And that’s tough because at the same time you’re growing up and you want to write about these experiences you’re having as a young adult.”

Joe Jonas let some pretty personal information slip during a Reddit AMA session, but he regrets nothing. The person involved in the personal ship doesn’t feel quite as care free, though.

When asked how he lost his virginity, Joe told Reddit users it was to someone named Ashley, and told them to Google it according to The Independent. Users quickly insinuated that Joe was talking about Ashley Greene.
