Nick Jonas & Quaker Chewy winner Gabrielle Giguere, Teen Vogue interview. What’s next for your music career? I’ve been doing a lot of writing this past year, for other artists and some for myself. For the most part, my mentality is that a great song is a great song, whether or not it’s something you hold on to for a little while or until the time is right to release it with my brothers or myself.
I’m definitely looking forward to the next Jonas Brothers project, and I believe that will come before anything I would do on my own. We’ve actually talked about it recently for the first time, and I’m really excited for the next chapter for us musically. It’s obviously important that we continue to follow our goals and ambitions as individuals, but when the time is right, we’ll start up and we’re excited for that.
I’ve been blessed to learn quite a bit and I plan to learn even more. Of what i have learned, I’m excited to share with someone who’s just breaking into it now and wants to have a long career in music and wants to continue to grow himself.
What do think about the resurgence of boy bands? I think Europe has never let it go; it’s never been out of the spotlight there. America is taking on the European mentality. There’s a band called The Wanted that I think is fantastic. I loved their music when i was over there in March or April this year, and I saw their videos and was like, ‘These guys are great.’ I’m all for them making a transition over there. As far as One Direction goes, and Mindless Behavior and all the other bands, I’m all for it and if there’s ever an opportunity to work with them, that’d be great. At the end of the day, I love pop music and always have. There’s something to be said about a great pop song. It’s great to see that people are into it.
What’s your favorite show right now? I love television, but all of the shows that I love get canceled. I loved Heroes; it got canceled. I loved Flash Forward, and it got canceled. I loved this show seven or eight years ago called Jack and Bobby. I loved Jack and Bobby, it was so good, and then it got canceled. I try not to actually like TV shows anymore because it ruins it for everyone. Of the shows out right now, I’d say Modern Family is just awesome and it would be cool to be part of it in some way.
The end of the year is quickly approaching. What’s your New Years’ resolution? I made a resolution in 2010 to stop drinking Diet Coke and I haven’t had Diet Coke since then. I think it was the best life change I’ve ever made, because I drank quite a lot of it. As far as new resolutions go.. I’m just going to stick with my Diet Coke.
Was Nick addicted to Diet Coke, why did he quit drinking it?
