Joe Jonas called into an Australian radio show to promote his first single “See No More,” and the show’s hosts straight up asked him about his old purity ring. The Jonas Brothers were once prominent champions of abstinence, and purity rings were a crucial part of their squeaky clean image. However, as Nick and Joe grew up they quietly slipped off their promise rings.

Joe has had a string of high profile girlfriends—Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Ashley Greene—and many fans seriously doubted that he remained pure in the eyes of God, as they say. Thanks to two obnoxious Australian radio personalities, now we have confirmation. So does Joe still wear his purity ring? Of course not, he’s 21!

Joe sounded cool and composed up until the hosts popped the question, at which point he started stuttering, choosing his words carefully.

“Oh, you know, I… That was something that we grew up with and just like anything I think you take some and leave some as you get older,” Joe replied. “I’m at a place in my life now where I’m making decisions on my own but I’m of course happy with the things I grew up with and I’m not ashamed of my past at all.”

In other words, can everyone please forget about that already? I’m not a teenage slave of the Disney company anymore.
