Joe Jonas Rollercoaster interview. On launching his solo career: ‘I used to be scared of taking risks, not anymore. This album has been a huge journey for me I’m on my own, just me. I love performing in environments that cater to people over 21. I love big concerts, but I’d be happy playing at a small spot,
..just jamming out and having a blast. When I start doing more of my DJing, I want to learn creative ways to hide who I am. I’d like to spin at my after-parties, wearing a mask or something. There’s something that I like about blending in and being ‘normal’. He gets excited like a pre-pubescent teen:
‘I must admit, I’m an iPhone freak. & I have this DJ app that I mix songs on. It’s really fun. And I’m a big Twitter guy. It’s a great way to interact with my fans. I have this awesome movie-maker on my phone that I make little movies on and then Tweet them. And have you seen Hipstamatic? It’s the best camera. I try to take something every day & the images end up looking like postcards’
On Michael Jackson & Amy Winehouse death: ‘I was in New Orleans visiting an ex-girlfriend and I was watching TV and all of a sudden reports came on stating Michael Jackson died. Then, the text messages started to flow in.
Constantly. The hardest thing for me was that I didn’t get to see him perform live. It was heart-wrenching.. & Amy was such a talent. A talent gone too soon. She died at 27, you know. God, I hope I make it.’
