Demi's Hilarious 4/20 Tribute
If you grew up watching (and obsessing over) Disney Channel stars like I did, your world was probably rocked in 2013 when Joe Jonas' Vulture essay went live. His tell-all basically blew the roof off of the Disney fame factory and the restrictions it placed on his life when the Jonas Brothers were still a thing. And he also ended up calling out ex-girlfriend and close friend Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus for pressuring him into smoking weed for the first time. So unsurprisingly, in honor of the pot-smoking holiday that is 4/20, Demi Lovato posted an Instagram tribute to the first time Jonas smoked, and it's actually super hilarious. To be fair, if Jonas is going to call her out like that, he totally had this one coming, even though it does seem that it's all in good fun.
And if the photo is a testament to Lovato's editing skills, I'm pretty impressed. In fact, I don't know what I love more about this picture — the fact that a very young Cyrus and Lovato are hugging with artfully drawn halos over their heads in the background, or Jonas' red-eyed, open-mouthed perfect smoking face Photoshopped on Selena Gomez's body with the oversized joint near his mouth. Or maybe it's the Mickey Mouse-shaped psychedelic peace signs decorating the border of the photo. I just can't decide.
To fully get the beauty of this photo, you have to understand what Jonas said in his Vulture piece on the topic:
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.
Teenage peer pressure at its finest, folks. And now that Lovato has taken the first swing, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Jonas is going to respond. And in my mind, he has a few options.
A Photoshopped Pic Of His Own
I feel like this could be the start of a beautiful Photoshop war that the entire world gets to watch and marvel over. Certainly he has some embarrassing dirt on Lovato he could spill by way of a ridiculous Instagram upload of his own? I'll be over here, anxiously refreshing his account.
An Actual Photo Of Jonas, Lovato, & Cyrus Smoking Weed
I realize there wasn't Instagram back then, but certainly someone commemorated the moment on that fateful day. I want to see it!
Another Tell-All Essay
Even though Jonas' last essay was pretty comprehensive, I'm not about to turn down another opportunity to hear more secrets from inside the Disney machine. If it was up to me, every Disney star would be required to do an exit interview after their contract expires.
Stage A Reunion In Celebration Of The Holiday
Being that Cyrus is already celebrating 4/20, Lovato and Jonas could easily get in on the party. Pics, please!
