Joe Jonas Turns 28 With A Little Help From His Friends

Joe Jonas Celebrates His 28th Birthday featureJoe Jonas turned 28 on Tuesday. As the singer approaches 30, his friends and family took to social media with well wishes. Both of the other Jonas Brothers shared pics of Joe via Instagram, along with sweet messages for the middle child.

“The world is a better place with you in it,” Nick Jonas wrote. Older brother Kevin Jonas captioned his pic of Joe with “love you brother.” While the Jonas Brothers were predictable with their posts, Joe’s bandmates in DNCE were predictably wild.

Cole Whittle wished a happy birthday to his “eternal brother stepdad husband dogwalker bartender psychiatrist alien parole officer twin and mentor.” Cole added, “I love you.” JinJoo Lee had a similar message for her “best friend-big-and-baby-bro-and-best-band mate.”

Conspicuously absent from the birthday posting was Joe’s girlfriend, Sophie Turner. The couple hasn’t been spending much time together in the last month, but Sophie’s been busy with the new season of “Game of Thrones.”

Check out the posts for Joe’s birthday below, plus see a video of Joe’s birthday party.

Joe Jonas Takes His Training Regimen To Bangkok, Thailand

Joe Jonas Takes His Training Regiment To Bangkok, Thailand featureJoe Jonas is a worldly man. His latest travels have taken him to Bangkok, Thailand, where he’s hanging with his DNCE pals Cole Whittle and Jack Lawless in the city’s crowded streets. The trio was there with JinJoo Lee for a show in the capital, but Joe found some time to workout while he was in town. While Cole was discovering that his boxer shorts style was right at home in Thailand, Joe was sparring at a major Muay Thai gym.

Joe went toe-to-toe with Saenchai, a four-time Thai title winner and both showed off video of the session via Instagram. Cole tagged along with Joe to the gym and got hit in the head during a dance contest for his trouble. Joe’s boxing coach, Ava Knight, was along for the ride as well.

Check out some of Joe’s Bangkok adventure below.

Perpetually Thirsty DNCE Drops A Luis Fonsi Remix For “Kissing Strangers”

Perpetually Thirsty DNCE Drops A Luis Fonsi Remix Of Kissing Strangers featureJoe Jonas and the rest of DNCE are still eager to kiss some strangers. The group has dropped a remix of its single “Kissing Strangers” featuring Nicki Minaj. What’s different about the new edition of the track? Justin Bieber collaborator Luis Fonsi takes over Joe’s parts on the verses for a Spanish language version of the infectious pop song.

The track might be a good pair with Camila Cabello’s new song “Havana.” Joe and his fellow GUESS model Camila are paired off in the new “Carpool Karaoke” series. Maybe DNCE would be down for another Spanish remix with Camila sometime in the future.

Hear the new remix of “Kissing Strangers” below.

“Cake By The Ocean” was released in September 2015 and has continued to be the band’s biggest and only hit, though follow-up single “Toothbrush” peaked at number 44 on the Billboard charts. Whether or not YouTube was included in the numbers goes unanswered, but the Gigi Hadid co-directed music video has accumulated over 200 million views since its October 2015 release.

Cole Whittle Admits He Ran Away With The Circus, Surprises No One

Cole Whittle Ran Away With The CircusCole Whittle is unarguably the craziest member of DNCE and in a recent interview with Wasabi Now, the bassist revealed that his weird antics began after one life-changing moment. “I literally ran away with the circus,” he tells the Japanese publication.

After leaving school to follow the circus to New York, Cole says the circus life helped shape who he is today. “I lived with horses, llamas, Russian acrobats and Mongolian contortionists. That was a very intense musical experience,” he admits. As time went on, Cole became more comfortable with his own personal style.

“I started wearing exactly what I wanted,” he explains. “For the first chunk of my life, I was a weirdo on the inside only. I was a punk rock kid, but didn’t really think about the outside.”

DNCE And Demi Lovato Turn Up In Las Vegas For JBL Fest

DNCE And Demi Lovato Turn Up For JBL Fest In Vegas featureJoe Jonas and Demi Lovato reunited for one night only in Las Vegas on Saturday. The former couple shared the stage at JBL Fest, an event hosted by one of Joe and Demi’s favorite corporate sponsors. The Vegas show delivered on a raucous crowd, which was the perfect vibe for both uptempo summer singles from the artists.

Demi brought her anti-apology anthem “Sorry Not Sorry” to the stage. Giant, color-changing balloons added a visual layer to Demi’s long-hair-don’t-care look. Demi also got a little love from Josh Peck, who was spotted snapping a selfie during “Heart Attack.”

Demi wasn’t the only one who broke out a throwback hit, though. DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean” may not be quite as old as “Heart Attack,” but the song is well-known to anyone who’s been following DNCE. The group pulled out other tracks like “Toothbrush” and “Body Moves” for the packed show.

Check out video of DNCE and Demi at the fest below.
