Popstar! interview with Jonas Brothers on winning an AMA and their future.
What was it like winning an AMA award? Nick: Awh! It was so amazing! Kevin: We did not know we were going to win. And we were like ‘YES!’ Joe: We were all sitting there kind of like, the last time at the MTV Video Music Awards we didn’t win and so it was kind of disappointing, but you don’t know what to expect when you go into those things.
Nick: The cool thing was that Ashley Tisdale was the one who presented us with the award. So when she walked out she kind of gave us this look like “You got this” so we were kind of encouraged, but we didn’t know.
Joe: All of our reactions were different. Nick was like ‘YES!’ Kevin: I stood up immediately and started clapping! [Laughs] I don’t know!Joe: I was just like ‘Uh!’ I couldn’t believe it,it was just a breath of fresh air.
Taylor Swift did very good, were you excited for her? Nick: Very excited..
Kevin: She performed really well, it was great! And then we were even
more, we were super happy about our free concert after the show at the
House of Blues. We played a free concert last night and we were just
totally pumped about doing that for our fans and we just played. A
bunch of our friends came, Jordin came, Jesse McCartney came, Dan
Aykroyd played a song with us, Demi,it was awesome!
Nick: We played for about two and a half hours.Kevin: It was totally stripped down, acoustic. Joe: Yeah, the longest we’ve ever played.Kevin: We played mostly covers. It was really, really cool.
Nick: A lot of the songs we played we had never played before in our
lives so we were just calling up friends and being like ‘Hey, it’s a
night of music, a lot of fun. We’ve never played this before, but let’s
give it a try.’ It worked out nicely!
What do you guys hope to accomplish in the next year? Nick: Also, we’re working with some new artists this year, HONOR
SOCIETY are dear friends of ours. We’re co-producing and co-writing on
their record, just signed them to kind of our label and we’ve got new
artists and we’ll continue to write for our record next year and then
like Joe said, working on a TV show for Disney and then a 3D movie in
With the holidays coming do you have any traditions? Kevin: The Christmas tree is going to be a big one for us, that’s
really exciting, but right now we’re getting ready for Thanksgiving.Nick: We’re going to be home this year for Christmas. Nick: We’re going to be in Texas, first time in like two years.
Have you seen TWILIGHT? Joe: No, we want to go and see what it’s all about! Nick: Congrats to the cast! Kevin: Yeah, congrats on the #1 movie – $70 mil! We have a movie coming
out in February and we’re crossing our fingers for it! Hopefully you
like the book.
