Joe Jonas wants Selena Gomez to be "happy".

The 24-year-old singer is a fan of his fellow former Disney star - who previously dated his brother Nick - and is hoping she can continue doing great things in her career following her recent stint in rehab.

Asked if he is a fan of the 'Come & Get It' hitmaker, he said: "I am! I am! I mean, her career been great and she is going to succeed and I want her to succeed and I want her to be happy!"

The former Jonas Brothers star believes the key to keeping himself on the right track and not succumbing to the pressures of fame is to learn from the mistakes of those he admires.

Discussing dealing with fame, he told E! News: "Something that I heard from someone I looked up to was, 'Watch the people around you and learn from their mistakes so you don't make the same.

"I just held on to that and any time I saw a celebrity I really looked up to screw up, I just was like 'all right, I am not going to do that or try my best ability to avoid that,' so it's just a learning tool."

Selena, 21, sought help at The Meadows facility in Arizona because she was "burnt out", with reports suggesting she underwent the two-week stint in rehab to address her alcohol and marijuana use.
