Nick Jonas, ‘I Don’t Take It For Granted’

10570923-large


Nick Jonas NJ.com interview. Do you visit New Jersey now that you are living across the river? My brother Kevin and his wife are living in New Jersey and I’ve seen them a few times, but I have a pretty intense schedule. I had rehearsals..

..when I got started and I’ve had to prioritize, making sure I was as prepared as I could be. What is your favorite way to spend a day in NYC? I’ve got my golden retriever with me. I love having him around, his name is Elvis. & I love spending time with him, going to dog parks.

Do you think the transition from the West Coast back to the East Coast might influence writing? Definitely. The environment you write in definitely can change and sort of affect the style of writing you do. I’ve been so busy preparing for the show and getting settled, I can’t write up as much as I’d like to. When is your next album coming out? We haven’t started yet, but there are definitely plans to..

start soon. We do want to continue to record and write for fans; it’s been a while since we released a record. It will be sooner rather than later, probably later this year or early next year. Why are you so grounded? I think by surrounding myself with the right people.

It’s important to be with people who inspire you to be the best you can be. I enjoy what I do. I’m blessed to be able to perform for audiences who want to hear me. It’s an amazing thing. I don’t take it for granted at all.

    Could this just be about Nick’s music? And not his female partners? It never fails.

    He has said this a few times now: ‘we want to record for our fans’. Could be just me, but I get the feeling he doesn’t really want this for himself but more for the fans.

    the Jonas Brothers have always wanted to please their fans (they have even lied/avoided the truth thinking it would please their fans) now that Nick did a solo album and Broadway he must be ready to do something for us again.
    I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing that they would be doing this more for us though. some people are happy when they see others happy and I believe this is especially true for them because whenever they talk about how they’ve brightened a fan’s day, their faces light up. as long as they get to do other things for themselves that they would enjoy and are not doing this because they feel they have to/it’s their duty, then I’d say there is no problem. am I making any sense?

    i want to paint nick jonas naked like jack painted rose in titanic

    WTF He hasn’t done anything rong with his fans. He just founds a way to be happy witht someone who loves and to living his dreams. And real fans would understand that and they’ll ALWAYS stick with him. :)

    agree, he’s a decent guy. I think it’s stupid how people treat him like a jerk now that he’s with a woman. people need to get their head out of 2007/2008..Niley will most likely never happen again. and you others can’t expect Nick to be single just because he won’t date you.

    I agree with you that it’s not a bad thing, but I’m kind of in a dilemma. It’s really sweet of them and I think they do get joy out of it, but if their passions lie elsewhere, as a fan I think they should follow them, even though I reaaally(!) want an album :p

    Come on. First Nelta. Now NILEY?! This just hopeless. You all are going to kill this kids career.

  • crazylady

    yeah I was saying that too but that’s the thing I think Nick already lived his dream..not just one but pretty much all of them. he got to do a solo album, he got to practice for the Dodgers AND he got to do Broadway again.

    and Kevin’s just happy being married…I know he wants kids but that’s in the future and he can still have them and do music too (Hanson did)

    About the mistakes last year. No one wants Nick unhappy. Or dateless. But, Newsflash. Teen fans are in love w/their idols. Constantly being papped w/ your girlfriend and using that relationship for publicity is shooting yourself in the foot. Also losing touch w/your fans. A twitter spree every month or at least attending an award show where you told your fans to vote for you would have done wonders last year.

    They’ve accomplished a lot since they started! You’re right, they can do all sorts of projects if they want to. If they’d want to go solo again after this JB album they can. I’m happy that they want to make an album together again!

  • Anonymous

    I kinda felt neglected last year. Not because of Delta, but I didn’t really feel connected anymore, like he wasn’t interested. Then again, I can’t expect him to be constantly updating his social media and doing a lot of press just so we can see his face.

  • crazylady

    me too, them being solo was not the same so I’ve been ready for a group album but I know Nick wanted to go solo so I’m glad he did.

    yeah you can’t because there wasn’t as much going on. the things that were going on he informed us about so that should be enough if you ask me.
    and we know he’s really private so you can’t expect that kind of stuff either.

    Yeah after Joe released his solo album I didn’t really see JB happening together again because it was obvious they had such different styles in music, but I’m happy they’re doing it. Really curious to see what kind of music they will be recording.

  • classicalmusicplayer

    Artist now a days get so burned out because they are always on the go. They are afraid that if they take a break they will lose their audience. But do we expect them to write good songs if they never live life. If they don’t there songs become boring. With the JoBros taking time off they should creat some fantastic music.

  • crazylady

    hopefully it won’t be something that seems rehashed from their old albums but it still incorporates the group style…like mature yet friendly (kinda like a LVATT 2.0 but better)

  • anonmus

    Nick’s only 19. I doubt he’s lived out all his dreams yet. This will be their first album that will have a chance to be taken seriously. If they come together and can decide on the right sound and what songs will express what they feel and yet might get radio play for once. Dreams? How about a number one single? A grammy? And maybe some respect from the public who’s written them off as lip syncing teen boys who’s time is over.

  • crazylady

    yeah maybe you’re right but I think he took care of the main ones.

    A grammy?

    Award shows are usually a popularity contest so probly not.

    And maybe some respect from the public who’s written them off as lip syncing teen boys who’s time is over.

    maybe but Nick gained respect in doing his album and Broadway..at least in the music industry

  • crazylady

    I’m blessed to be able to perform for audiences who want to hear me

    ah there it is…was waiting for it

    I’m getting tired of hearing about their new album though. late this year is too long from now.

    So that’s it? After he’s done with the play, which isn’t doing well with ticket sales, his next goal is the presidency? I guess his next step would be 4 years of college then. Cause no one will elect someone without a degree.

    actually, I was joking. it seems clear that Nick will be focusing on music after the musical is done. and people won’t elect someone without a degree? George W. Bush was a C- student in school. people don’t look into education if it’s not presented; it’s all about presentation.

    I really don’t think he takes anything for granted. But he made some major mistakes with his fans last year. It seems like he’s working very hard to stop the bleeding. They need to do something major to draw the fans back. Hopefully some great music from him and his brothers will do that.

I’m exited for a new album and I’m hoping they are too. It’s still early on so I think it’ll change once they start writing/recording.
