The Jonas Brothers Want To Buy Their Parents A New House



Jonas Brothers interview at The Roxy about their success, gifts and
musical inspirations.
Credit: JBFan.org. Even though the boys already spent $2.9 million on a six-bedroom mansion in Dallas, Texas, they’re still planning to buy their parents a new house.

Kevin explained: ‘I haven’t spent my money on anything extra- vagant. The most I have done is leased a car, which I don’t drive because I am never at home! Some day we will buy our parents a house, but the money is not why we do what we do. It’s all about the music for us.’

On what he looks for in a girl: ‘I want someone who can understand what we do, day in and day out. And someone who can have long conversations on the phon, because that is pretty much all we are able to do at the moment!’

The brothers landed the fourth slot on this Forbes’s 2008 Hollywood’s Top-Earning Tweens list, after each banking $12 million in a year.

    just because they have a house or two doesn’t mean they have “changed” it means they actually have the money to do what they want now

  • Yvonne

    Well, ya gotta think that Kevin may want to spend even more “quality time” with Danielle, some that isn’t great when mom&dad are around

  • erin

    seriously… do u comment to actually talk about the article or is it just a competition to comment first??

    … even if u wana be first u shud say SOMETHIN that relates to the article!

    and tbh no one cares who is first… its no big deal- there have been over a hundred comments on here and over a hundred people have been first… it doesnt make them any more special or known than the rest!

  • rosie

    wow.
    oceanup, you dumbass
    you spelt phone wrong.

    tsktsk.

    aha, i get a bit tense everytime i read the word “phone” on ocean up. Especially if it’s in relation with joe jonas.

    (27 second phone break up, hint hint)

    Sure, it’s all about the music but they have countless endorsement deals, books, camp rock, a show… right Kev

    What is with them and houses!?!?!?

  • http://myspace.com/missmonkey411 hailey

    this disgusts me.
    they have a giant, expensive house as it is.
    there’s no reason for them to have so many houses.
    they’ve changed oh so much.

  • Anonymous

    I have two houses.
    sure, they’re not million dollar ones, but I do have 2.
    so what am I, a jerk now?

    Nope.

    Neither are they.
    THEY HAVE THE FUCKING MONEY.
    WHO GIVES A SHIT WHAT THEY DO WITH IT? They could literally flush 100,000,000 dollars of theirs down the toilet and I wouldn’t care !
    NOT AFFECTING ME/MY LIFE.
    WHY DO YOU ALL CARE WHAT THEY DO WITH THEIR MONEY?
    JEEEEEEEZ.
    they don’t need your opinion on what they should by.

  • Anonymous

    they only need one house.
    really.

  • Anonymous

    wtf ? next thing their going to buy a house for each family member.

  • kayla

    all i said was “i’ve never gotten first before”

    call the oceanup police!

  • JBlove

    i think it’s sweet that they want to buy their parents a house. I know that some of you are like omj what spoiled rich kids, but when they have so much money to spare they might as well spend it and do something nice for their parents. If they didn’t spend money people would start criticizing them for being cheap. so give them a break, they’re way sweet and talented.

    their ‘rents don’t need another house!
    they have like 3 multi-million dollar houses.
    but hey, that’s their money to waste. once the next best thing comes along and everyone forgets about them, they’ll be needing to sell those houses to get their money back.

    OH GOSH I AM STARTING TO FEEL LIKE THEIR 15 MINUTES ARE ALMOST RIGHT WITH ALL THE HATERS I AM NOT A FAN ANYMORE BUT THAT DOESNT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE ME A HATER EITHER I JUST FEEL LIKE SOMEONE CAN ONlY TAKE A BOyBaND FROM THE DISNEY CHANNEL FOR SO LONG UNTIL THEY EVENTUALLY BECOME WASHED UP WICH IS STARTING TO HAPPEN WITH THE JONAS BROTHERS

  • Dead Poets Society

    You people find something negative with everything.
    Its just something they want to do for their parents in the future, um whats wrong with that??? Nothing, chillax.

    Anyways this interview is so cute. Joe forgot the year for a second there lol.

  • kayla

    whom they still live with…

  • kristan

    i know i’ll get yelled at for this but here is goes…

    “but the money is not why we do what we do. It’s all about the music for us.”

    oh so THATS why they came out with a pointless book, a 3-D movie, and are staring in their own extra stupid disney channel series. it wasn’t for the money, it was to express their love for music! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.

    godd i used to love these boys, but ive gotten so disappointed in them lately with their career choices.

  • kayla

    three.
    it’s ridiculous.

  • erin

    stfu… so does being first make u any more special??

    and if u dont know… when you read an article just because it doesnt have any comments at the time doesnt mean you will be the first to comment…. and ur second
    ‘effin idiot

  • danielle

    I’m only gonna let them buy a new house unless I get to come over sometime :) hahaha….. I freaking wish….

  • Sneha

    Some of you are actually trying to make this a bad thing. Pathetic. There is nothing wrong with them making a general statement about one day getting their parents a home.
    Some of you try so hard, just stfu.

  • kayla

    on my computer, it says im first.
    so shut the hell up and stop starting fights with me over the stupidest thing you fucking piece of trash.
    jesus christ.

  • kayla

    exactly!
    because acting has everything to do with music.

  • Anonymous

    well considering that two of them are legally adults and should be living on their own anyway.. it would be understandable. i mean they aren’t gonna live together when frankie is 17 i hope..

  • Anonymous

    what did the interviewer ask when nick said ‘i was like 12’?
    his age when he wrote SOS?
    wow. :/

  • Jonas Fan Forever

    lmfao. that’s what i’m saying.
    i love them, but. eh. i don’t know.

    with an exception – of their crazy, obsessive little girl fans.

  • MileyFan

    hahah Kevin was so nervous when he was asked about that lambroguin that sounds weird it probaly is his!!

  • Nikki

    I think its so sweet how they never say that they look for in a girl is if she is pretty or not.
    I love how it is never about the looks for them.
    Yeah all of their “famous” girlfriends have been pretty, but I still think its so amazing how they don’t say stuff like that.

  • dg

    i bet they just want a house to their own. to do certain stuff in, if u know what i mean.

  • Yvonne

    This will come as a shock to some of you that know I love Kevin a lot, but “DAMMIT KEVIN! JUST SAY DANIELLE IS YOUR GIRLFRIEND!” He needs to quit acting like he is still single

  • lisa

    haha yea kevin was definitely buggin about the lambo. i thought it was only borrowed for a day on his bday? now a week? hmm

    sorry i have theories that that lambo is definitely his.

    aw elvis jumped on frankie. and i love when nick gives his whole deep meaning of s.o.s then is like.. i was 12. :| are you kidding me. lol. that boy.

  • Anonymous

    yeah that car Kevin leased…..we all know that as the one his friend “let him test drive for a few days”

    i have lost all faith in Kevin.

    I know that is so annoying and the same for the other 2, nobody is gonna throw themselves from a building( I don’t think so) if they would just tell the truth,their credibility is down the drain with me.

  • anonymous

    So sos wasn’t about Miley? I always thought it was, if he’s telling the truth it couldn’t have been and how old was he when he started dating 5? Hey wait now I just remembered he said his first kiss was at 13,so if he wrote a break up song when he was 12,he never kissed that girl? I’m very nosey but the more they talk the more questions I have.haha

    thats wat ive been thinkin! he says all of his songs are about something that happened 2 him!! so i wonder who pre miley songs like one day at a time, please be mine, 7 05 nd mor are written about??

  • Yvonne

    MELANI—LOL at “throw themselves from a building”! Thats the same way I describe it sometimes. I actually think Nick and Selena are “off” right now. It seems like they break up and then get back together a lot. Joe is NEVER gonna be taken. His relationships are always gonna be so short its not worth investing your time in it(even if he really is with Camilla, its not serious). Kevin on the other hand has been with Danielle a LONG TIME and its rumored he might ask her to marry him soon. Thats why I get upset with him more tan Joe or Nick cause we all KNOW he is very much taken, and IMO, Danielle is the luckiest girl ever

  • Yvonne

    Great! You all stood by Joe with his personal blog about Taylor. Now it seems like your gonna turn on Kevin. Is he gonna have to do a blog too? I support Kevin always

  • erin

    seriously… if u dont hav anythin to fuckn say about the post… DONT COMMENT!!

  • kayla

    no.
    i’d rather talk about cheese.
    cheese is amazing.
