Joe Jonas featured in InStyle. Thx Gina @thejonaschannel. We bet you’ve got a secret society of older fans: Well, sometimes I do think there’s a group of people who are obsessed with the Jonas Brothers but aren’t sure if it’s ‘cool’ to like us, probably because the majority of our fans are screaming, crazy girls [laughs]. So I’ve met people who will say, ‘Can I get a picture for my daughter’ & I’m, like, ‘Hey, man, I get it if it’s actually for you.’
On his solo album: I began writing it with a Michael Buble mentality, I think he’s fantastic, and it’s the perfect music for any date night, ever, and I wanted to be a very vocal singer-songwriter. But now I’m switching gears a bit. Is that because you’re working with Frankmusik? Yeah, he’s awesome! We’ve gone through a couple of different sounds, but both the Michael Buble and the Frankmusik
influences are strong. It’s about bringing all of that together. On his exes: To tell nothing but the truth [laughs]. People say, ‘Are you mad that somebody writes a song about you?’ and I say, No, that means I have the freedom to write a song about her’ [which he did with ‘Much Better’]. I’m always looking for a great girl, and I’ve been able to meet some really nice girls and some not-so-nice girls.
I always try to be cool and still be friends, but sometimes it’s better not to. Not to sound all, ‘Oh, feel bad for me,’ but once or twice I have been the heartbroken one. With Demi, it’s been friendly. There hasn’t been any drama. You don’t strike me as a tattoo guy. I’m not. And I always thought if you got one, you’d want it
where you could hide it for a movie role. But Africa was so inspiring, I may put it right here [he points to his right inner bicep]. All the small things in life, dramas or relationships or stuff that stresses you out, didn’t seem important after that trip.
