Nick Jonas interview with EW: On meeting Obama: ‘You know, it was fairly brief. He said hello and thanks for playing for his daughters. I said it was a pleasure to meet him, he said, ‘You, too,’ and then we took a photo and that was it. But it was really cool to meet him.’
On Perez Hilton beating: ‘We weren’t around when it happened. We went back to the hotel and went to bed, woke up and saw some of what happened. But it’s an unfortunate incident. And I think that hopefully they’ll both work it out.’
On convincing Miley to perform with him: ‘That song means a lot to both of us and to have the opportunity to play it live was great. It just came about. We were both excited about doing it.’
His summer music list: ‘As far as music goes, there’s a band I liked a couple of years ago that I just recently rediscovered. I guess you can call it taking it off the shelf, kind of dusting it off. It’s a Boston-based band called Damone, kind of power-pop meets metal. It’s pretty good.
There is a girl lead singer backed up by like five guys. It’s a really cool sound. I listened to it the other day again and just fell right back in love with it. There’s one particular song called “You’re the One,” and it’s fantastic.’
The LVATT song you should listen too: ‘A song called ‘Much Better.’ It’s got some buzz because its about something personal that we wrote about. It’s a great song, and I think it’s a prime example of one of those times when we were able to take something going on in our lives..
..write about it, and kind of infuse the Neil Diamond sound that we were talking about for this record. It’s got the horns on it, and it’s got a great, kind of feel-good vibe to it. If you listen to the song you get a pretty clear picture of what it’s about, but that’s kind of where I’ll leave it I guess.’ WENN. Atty sent pix!
