Newsflash: Joe Jonas is not a Disney Channel star anymore.
The "Cake By the Ocean" crooner has undoubtedly shed that cookie-cutter image from his Jonas Brothers days, and there's no better proof than his most recent sit-down with PrideSource.
Recalling DNCE's sexually explicit track "Be Mean," Jonas revealed his own experience in the bedroom inspired its S&M-themed lyrics.
"Some people say, 'We finally can talk about these kinds of things, and we want to go wild and crazy,' but really, it's just stuff we're going through," Jonas shared. "I feel like I'm free in my life to speak about it, and yeah, everyone should try a little bit of something new in the bedroom."
He continued, "It's definitely fun when you bring some whips and leather and whatever you may be into—a little bit of S&M—into the bedroom."
But as for who Joe got a little experimental with behind closed doors? His lips are sealed: "I wrote it about me and someone I was getting wild with and maybe [we] busted some outfits out—you know, you get a little crazy. It's a fun song, and I hope people can have fun with it and learn from it."
Let the guessing games begin.
And speaking of the clear shift in his musical stylings, Joe believes it's only natural that the moments he wrote about as a JoBro would differ from his new sound.
"I'm proud of the stuff I did with my brothers, but you grow up and go through a lot of different things, so you may be talking about something very innocent—a first kiss, taking somebody out for the first time—when you're that age," Jonas said.
"But cut to when you're 27, and you're going through things that are a bit more mature, sexually or what not, and that's what you're gonna write about."
Suffice it to say Joe has no intentions of reliving his Camp Rock stardom.
"I feel really comfortable in my life and career right now," he told the outlet. "I definitely feel like the best version of myself, and I'm glad I can have a good label now that allows me to spread my wings and create music that really is, for all of us (in the band), unique and special."
