Pepperdine University senior Shaina probably never expected Joe Jonas to actually respond to her video where she asked the singer to go to formal with her. Luckily for her, he did and it’s kind of amazing.
While most celebs accept or deny such invitations via Twitter or their publicists, Joe Jonas took it one step further with his own video response. Asides from taking us to the gun show (damn, Joe! When did you start hitting the gym? Hope you didn’t miss leg day!), Joe even recruited a shirtless sax player (who we think is Nick) to gently play some music in the background, bringing his video to some next level Kenny G type shit. Two thumbs up for you, Joe!
Jonas Brothers fans rejoice! The wait is finally over. Over the course of the week, the boys have been releasing clips and stills counting down to their new music video, “Pom Poms.” Let me tell you – it doesn’t disappoint!
Pom Poms has a new type of sound that fit into their voice. (Let’s get real – they can sing a menu and it will still be a hit because they’re that awesome) It’s no “Lovebug” or “Paranoid,” which have more of a rock feel, but nonetheless very catchy. Plus, Nick Jonas dances for a bit in the music video.
Okay, he’s no professional dancer but we can’t help to want to cuddle with him after seeing him dance like that!
The JoBros are back
Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas are coming back into our lives! Last night, the trio hit up their fans on Ustream where they gave them a sneak peek to their upcoming album as well as their new app you can download. Are you excited for their comeback or totally over them?
Niall Horan parties it up at V Fest
One Direction’s Niall Horan hit up V Fest, with his party pals while being slightly undercover with those shades. Seems like even though Caroline Flack’s romance with Harry Styles is over, there’s still some friendship going on with another member of 1D who joined along for the fun.
Demi turns the big 2-0!
Yesterday Ms. Demi Lovato turned 20-years-old. I don’t know about you, but it feels like forever until we finally get to watch X-Factor. I can’t wait to see how Demi interacts with Simon (we all know about Simon + Paula back in American Idol days). The 2 night X-Factor premiere starts September 12 & 13.
Snack time anyone? Read more…
Demi Lovato continued her tour Wednesday night at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Let me just tell you, I went to see Demi a couple weeks back and the girl has some major pipes! These Lovatics had no idea what surprise was coming their way until Demi broke the news — and they broke out into screams.
The surprise guest was Nick Jonas! After exchanging hugs, Demi told the fans in the crowd, “Nick is one of my greatest friends I’ve ever had, so I just wanted to bring him out on stage to show you, even though you already know how talented he is.” The two worked along side each other in “Camp Rock,” later followed by a tour with the Jonas Brothers. It was a touching moment when they performed ”Catch Me” and “Don’t Forget,” which was a song they wrote together. ZOMG I love going down memory lane.
After the show, Nick tweeted:
Joe Jonas was asked about his New Year’s resolution. His response should excite Jonas Brothers fan everywhere.
“I hope to continue what I’ve been doing — making great music that I’m proud of,” he said. “And be able to make more music with my brothers.”
It will be amazing to have all the brothers back in the studio together after they have spent some time on their individual projects. Joe has been working on his solo music career, Nick is beginning his stint on Broadway, and Kevin has been writing and directing his own short film.
The three brothers have been busy doing their own thing this year; Joe Jonas released a solo album, Nick’s been acting on Broadway Kevin is just living the married life.
While chatting with MTV, Nick Jonas mentioned a Jonas Brothers comeback is in the works.
“We have started thinking about the next step and what that means for the brothers, and the tone overall is just that we want it to be the right time,” Nick says. The trio plans on taking a lot of time with their next album. Rushing into it is not an option for the young musicians.
Nick also tells his fans that although they’re all pursuing their own dreams right now, the band is not breaking up any time soon.
“”I don’t know necessarily when that will be, but it will happen, and when it does, we’re gonna be really excited, and hopefully our fans and others will be excited as well,” he says.
It’s been more than 2 years since the band of brothers released “Lines, Vines and Trying Times”. I have a feeling getting back together for a follow up won’t be such a trying time – unless they really do want to disappoint 50 million teenage girls.
Joe Jonas talks about his amazingly loyal and awesome fans, and he also talks about going out solo without his fans.
How well do you know Joe Jonas? While gearing up for his new album “Fast Life”, we wanted to slow things down and get to know him personally. In this first part of our interview we ask Joe about the first time he slow danced with a girl, the last time he cried during a movie and even made him do calculus.
EW reports Nick is no stranger to musical theater. He made his Broadway debut in 2001 in the musical revival Annie Get Your Gun, then played Chip in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2002, and then young Gavroche in Les Misérables in 2003.
It seems like the Jonas Brothers continue to be on hiatus as the brothers pursue solo projects.
Nick Jonas will be launching a children’s singing competition, reports MTV News.
The ‘Jonas Brothers’ musician/singer will be launching a nationwide singing competition for children on June 8, which will aim to find “America’s next pint-sized superstar.”
The 18-year-old will be teaming up with Quaker Chewy Granola Bars for the ‘Quaker Chewy Superstar Contest.’
Here’s how the competition is set up. Only children from ages 8 to 14 can upload their singing performances onto ChewySuperstar.com, where a panel of judges will evaluate performances and fans can vote for the top five contestants.
The winner of the competition will not only receive a contract with ‘Jonas Group Management,’ but will also receive a song produced by Nick himself, an online music video and a cash prize.
“Making music is my passion in life and the best way I know how to express myself,” Jonas said in a statement. “I wanted to be part of the Quaker Chewy Superstar Search to help other young musicians make music and follow their dreams.”
Well, isn’t this a cute little business deal. It’s nice of him to use his fame to make some other child’s dreams come true. Let’s just hope the winner chosen actually has talent, because ‘cute factor’ can only get them so far in life.
When he’s not busy stealing the hearts of millions of girls around the world with his angelic voice, what does Nick Jonas do, one might ask? Well here’s one answer!
MTV reports that Nick Jonas, one third of the all-brother group, the Jonas Brothers, has composed the music for the new expansion world, “Wintertusk,” of the online game “Wizard101.”
“It’s been a really interesting journey composing some music for ‘Wintertusk’,” Jonas told MTV. “They came to me and said, ‘hey we’d love to have you be a part of this in some way,’ and as I was kind of getting into producing and song-writing, something I always wanted to do was score, so I said, ‘I’d love to be able to score this game for you and create some music specifically for the game and the vibe of the game.’”
Jonas explained that it’s different from anything else he’s ever done, but is looking forward to people hearing the music in the game. And I can guarantee that OJDers (Obsessive Jonas Disorder, for those who don’t know) all over are looking forward to it just as much, since this will be the first dose of anything Jonas they will have gotten in quite a while!
“I think what really helped when composing the pieces for Wintertusk was having some of the musical theater background that I have, obviously epic in its sounds,” he continued. “Specifically with ‘Les Mis’ and some of the stuff I did with that it really helped me open my mind to a couple different things and the way that this music should sound for this game.”
But when it comes to being a gamer himself, Jonas says, “I get into it a bit. I spend more time in the studio more than anything. But my little brother [Frankie] is a big video game fan.”
Sounds like quite an exciting project! It will be very exciting to see how well Nick tackled this one – but then again, there isn’t much wrong this boy can do when it comes to music, since it seems he is incapable of failing at anything musically.
Don’t worry fans, they’re still not breaking up! Just because Kevin has gotten married and disappeared from the world, Nick has been working on his acting and producing songs, and Joe has been working on his solo album, it still doesn’t mean that the trio are separating! Of course not.
Where have these three brothers been, you may ask? Valid question. But it seems we have found one of them! Joe Jonas can be seen adorning this month’s issue of Details magazine. And might we say, he is looking mighty fine!
In the article, Jonas dishes about breaking out of the teen-idol shell and making a name for himself, sans Nick and Kevin.
“I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe told Details. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”
The article, entitled “Joe Goes it Alone” (but remember, they’re NOT breaking up), goes on to express Joe’s feelings of going solo:
“We’re not breaking up, we’re just taking a break,” Joe says. “I really have a hope for the fans that got older and went, ‘You know what, I’m really not into the Jonas Brothers anymore,’ that I’m able to catch their ear again with my project and they’re able to go, like, ‘Hey, this is cool stuff, I’m happy listening to this, I’m not embarrassed listening to this.’”
According to Perez Hilton, Joe recently opened up about his upcoming album, and working with producer Danja:
“I think for me the biggest influences are Daft Punk. I love their music. There’s a guy, Frankmusik, out of London, a lot of electro DJs out in Europe are doing some cool stuff right now. I just listen to a bunch of stuff you dance to, kind of electro-based. A lot of stuff that’s so amazing [that] you can create on the computer. I think, for both of us, we are huge fans of the new ‘Tron‘ movie. To be able to go on a musical journey for a while and finally with finding Danja and working with him, we’ve been able to collaborate on something that really works for me. And to find me and not try to mold it into something it’s not, to try and be myself and my music and kind of tell stories and be honest and just have something … when people hear it, hopefully they’ll be able to dance to it and have a good time.”
Hmm…this sounds extremely different from the usual Jonas melodies, making me sceptical to believe it completely. But one thing’s for sure; I will be dancing when this album comes out!
“It’s Joe’s album, it’s not just something put together for him,” Danja told Details. “He’s collaborating with the writing. He’s very different from what you’d expect. All I can say is he’s an adult man. He has a rock-star edge about him.”
Will it be good, will it be bad; will it makes our ears bleed, or leave us singing our praises? So many questions, so little answers, especially keeping in mind that Hollywood Records promised this album in early 2011. Reality check, it’s already mid-March. So where is it?!
It looks like Bieber’s compensating for his recent dramatic haircut by growing some hair a little further south. That’s right: the Biebs is putting a ‘stache on it!
Justin tweeted the following message to his fans:
“im not shaving for a month so you all can see my mustache. i’m pumped.”
Aww, what a precious delicate flower! We’d love to see you try to grow a mustache…emphasis on the word ‘try.’ Lolz!
Be careful Biebs…remember what happened to teen heartthrobs Jesse McCartney and the Jonas Brothers when they grew up! Preteens like to spend their money on the young and babyfaced…and we know how much you like to spend YOUR money on GF Selena Gomez.
Don’t rush it! Stay young and keep the ca$h rolling in!
Last night at the People’s Choice Awards, the “Sonny with a Chance” babe was named Favorite TV Guest Star for her role on “Grey’s Anatomy” last year.
Additionally, Lovato, the Jonas Brothers, and the rest of the “Camp Rock 2” peeps earned the award of Favorite Family TV Movie.
Clearly the public can overlook Lovato’s mishaps and still see her as a promising teen idol. It is unfortunate that Lovato has to go through rehab but hopefully it will not taint her reputation, which obviously, it hasn’t.
Miley Cyrus and that salvia bong on the other hand…..oh boy.
According to sources all over the web, Demi Lovato has checked herself into rehab for undisclosed “emotional and physical issues.” Perezhilton.com reports from an insider source that Lovato is being treated for an eating disorder as well as self-abuse. Lovato also will not be finishing her tour with the Jonas Brothers.
Apparently Lovato was quite the party girl on her current tour. Lovato and her reps have blamed the bad habits and the rehab stint on the pressures of Hollywood and fame. It’s not difficult to believe that fame can do harmful things to a person especially when young and vulnerable like Lovato. We’ve seen so many cases of child stars going down the wrong path from Drew Barreymore to Lindsay Lohan.
It seems that many of the Disney starlets are troubled. You have Lindsay Lohan who got her start in Disney films and now she is in and out of rehab. Miley Cyrus isn’t in rehab, but she has tainted her pure image quite a bit in the last year. We can even take Britney Spears as an example as she got her start in the Mickey Mouse Club. What is the deal with Disney?
In any case, hopefully Lovato pulls through the rehab stint and can get back to Camp Rock. However, Disney may pull the plugs on this one, she’s no longer innocent.
The Irish rockers were also the top touring act of the year, selling 1.3 million tickets for the 20 shows on their 360 Degree world tour. The tour – still ongoing – is the most expensive one in history.
Joe Jonas has hinted that he may be breaking away from the Jonas Brothers to pursue some solo projects, reports Perez Hilton. He said he has been writing some new music, but did not reveal if it is for the band or another project.
He has said he’s interested in doing more movies. “I’m looking forward to doing more acting. I know everybody says this, but I want to be able to do everything. I won’t be satisfied until I’m ready to do every kind of role – from a villain to a comedian.”
Sorry for any Jonas Brothers fans, but the eldest of the brothers is taken. Kevin Jonas is engaged to his girlfriend of almost two years, according to People.
On Wednesday, one third of the Jonas Brothers trio showed up to girlfriend Danielle Deleasa’s New Jersey home, got on one knee and asked her to marry him. “She said yes, yes, yes, like 500 times super fast in a row,” he told People.
The pair met in 2007 while their families were on a Bahamas vacation. At the time Deleasa, a former hairdresser, admits she didn’t even know who the Jonas Brothers were.
“It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world,” Kevin said to the magazine. He arrived from an overnight flight to ask her to marry him.
