Nick covers MJ's 'The Way You Make Me Feel' @ House of Blues Dallas.
Thx Lesley! From Katherine: I just got back from the second Nick Jonas concert and it was AMAZING. Danielle, Kevin, Joe, Denise, Frankie, Paul Sr., John Taylor, Maya & Chelsea Staub were there. At the first concert, Nick tried to tell a joke but couldn't think of one.
So, my friend met him today and gave him a joke book at the meet and greet. During the concert, he read a couple of jokes and he pointed to us and said 'There's the jokebook girls.'
Justin Bieber is in the Bahamas right now and will be performing a free show on Jan. 9. Today he Tweeted that he swam with dolphins with Ryan butler, Christian Beadles & Chaz Somers. Thx Sara!

If you know the name Nick Jonas, it may be because you’re 12 years old. But if you don’t immediately recognize the 17-year-old creative leader of tween heartthrobs the Jonas Brothers, then you’re just the person that Jonas hopes will check out his new, more mature solo act, Nick Jonas & the Administration.
Why did you want to do a solo project? It’s not that I wanted to do a solo project, but that my new songs weren’t stylistically right for the Jonas Brothers. So I thought maybe I could branch out a little. Full interview @ New York Post.
Nick didn't wear his purity ring on his finger, it was around his neck.

From Jessica: I went to the Nick Jonas & The Administration concert and met Joe, Levin and Selena. They were all so sweet and happy to take a picture with us! The concert was amazing Joe, Kevin, Denise Jonas and John Taylor were all singing along to every song in the VIP section! What an awesome show! Congrats Nick!
Nick Jonas TimeOut interview. On keeping The Administration a secret: It was pretty quiet. I was actually surprised that it was that quiet for that long. I was super-protective of it, and I still am very protective, just because I always wanted it to be the right setup. The way it came out was a bit of a shock to a lot of people, including us, but I think that it was kind of great the way it happened. We’re just excited now that people will listen to it, and hopefully they’ll like it.
On what a Jonas Brothers fan might think of the record: Going into the recording process, I knew it would be something different, although I didn’t know how different it would be. For the first time in my life, I think, I said, Just do what you need to do now, think about how you’re going to set it up and what the setup’s going to be like. I had about eight months to do that, to lay in bed before I went to sleep every night and just think about each step. So far, the response has been great. 'Who I Am' is a bridge track: It kind of has a little bit of that Jonas Brothers sound, but it definitely does introduce some new sounds.
Parts of Who I Am sound like a breakup record.. 'I think the experience was the moment when I kind of went through the list of double meanings that I could use. So 'The Rose Garden,' 'Conspiracy Theory,' 'Olive & an Arrow' and 'State of Emergency' were basically the only ones from that list of probably 50 of these ideas that I had that stuck. And 'Rose Garden' being the first one, I think it did have a personal connection with me, but it was also a story I was trying to tell, a story that, yes, I did feel a connection to personally.
