Jonas Brothers New York Times interview excerpts: Joe on how his solo album would sound: ‘It would gradjitate towards Kings of Leon and MGMT.’ Two bands who enjoy the occasional chemical relaxant.
Joe said he’s less rock’n’roll than mom Denise: ‘My mom wanted me to take some medicine on the plane to fall asleep. and I didn’t take it. I was trying to prove to her that I could fall asleep without it. And I was right.’
Their new song WWIII is an explicit address to a girlfriend whose combative nature seems to be making the relationship untenable. Nick admitted: ‘I wrote it out of personal experience. It was about this relationship. This person kept on..
..fighting, and making out like it was world war three, when it was really a one-sided battle. It was just them coming at you, and you don’t really have any problem.’ After meeting on the Hannah set, Miley and Nick started dating: Miley, ‘We became boyfriend and girlfriend on the day we met.
For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights, and so I did that.
And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, I want to make my hair black now, I don’t want to look pretty. I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be.’ Nick, ‘I don’t know that I was the reason she dyed her hair black. But we are very good friends now, and that’s what’s important.’
