Nick Jonas told Billboard: ‘I do think the Patriots are an amazing team and Tom Brady is an absolutely incredible quarterback. The things that’s been interesting about the Giants’ season into the playoffs is that they started off okay, then they had a little bit of a struggle, but then they really started to pick their game up in the last four games and have been playing like a team that wants to win the
Super Bowl. My opinion is that it’ll be an incredible game, back and forth, lots of points scored, because both quarterbacks are really talented and know how to run their offense. My prediction is the Giants walk away with the title once again.’ JoJo Levesque: ‘I’m probably going to find Boston sports pub [in Los Angeles]. There’s this place in Santa Monica that I want to check out,
..it’s owned by people from Massachusetts, so I’m going to hopefully go there & be a very stereotypical New England fan. I grew up in Foxboro, so the Patriots stadium was literally my backyard growing up. Of course I’m predicting a win for my Pats. And I don’t necessarily believe in betting or things like that,
..but if I was gonna put my money somewhere it’d definitely be on the Pats. I just feel we have more heart than anybody. I’ll argue any team from Massachusetts, any sports team from New England, I just feel like we win by default, because we have heart.’
Paper Mag interview. Did you not have to alter your diet when you were playing shows with the Jonas Brothers? It’s a different kind of singing, I’d say. It’s really a different kind of vocal stamina. How so?
The placement of the voice for pop music & then for theater [is different]. I have a distinctly different sounding theater voice than I do for the kind of band-oriented stuff I do. It’s not that my voice is different by any means but it’s just a different placement in my diaphragm. [I need to] stay healthy for eight shows a week. Do you have any dream roles? There are a few. What’s been really interesting is I’ve sort of had to adjust my list now because one of them was Marius and I was able to play Marius last year [in Les Misérables] and one of them was Finch and now I’ve been able to do that. As far as the rest go, I think that a revival of Miss
Saigon would be great [and me] playing Chris. Do you think that you and your brothers will record again? We’ve already started thinking about the next step for the brothers. The great thing about the theater schedule is I’ve got the days free for the most part when I’m not doing press. I’ve got the days free to create and I’ve set up a home studio in my apartment here, which is fun. & I get a fair amount of work done in here without having to travel. You may even see some new Jonas material out sooner than you think.
So another thing I wanted to talk about is the fact that you’re 19 and while many people your age are studying and partying in college, you’re starring on Broadway. Have you ever wanted a more typical young adulthood and did you ever want to go to college?
I’ve been really fortunate to be able to do what I love without an education and I definitely did consider, and even went as far as visit, a couple colleges and think about whether or not that was what I wanted to do. This was probably about two years ago. I finished school a little early I finished when I was 16 so I had two years to consider [college]. I would’ve wanted to go to college to study English as well as Journalism actually.
It didn’t really turn out that’s not the way things went for me. Things were kind of different because that was in the heat of things for my brothers and I and it’s been an amazing life since then so I’m really grateful. It’s always in the back of my mind that maybe one day I will go [to college] but for now I’m content where I am. There’s no regrets. Life’s too short.
