Nick Jonas interview with EW: On meeting Obama: 'You know, it was fairly brief. He said hello and thanks for playing for his daughters. I said it was a pleasure to meet him, he said, 'You, too,' and then we took a photo and that was it. But it was really cool to meet him.'
On Perez Hilton beating: 'We weren't around when it happened. We went back to the hotel and went to bed, woke up and saw some of what happened. But it's an unfortunate incident. And I think that hopefully they'll both work it out.'
On convincing Miley to perform with him: 'That song means a lot to both of us and to have the opportunity to play it live was great. It just came about. We were both excited about doing it.'
His summer music list: 'As far as music goes, there's a band I liked a couple of years ago that I just recently rediscovered. I guess you can call it taking it off the shelf, kind of dusting it off. It's a Boston-based band called Damone, kind of power-pop meets metal. It's pretty good.
There is a girl lead singer backed up by like five guys. It's a really cool sound. I listened to it the other day again and just fell right back in love with it. There's one particular song called "You're the One," and it's fantastic.'
The LVATT song you should listen too: 'A song called 'Much Better.' It's got some buzz because its about something personal that we wrote about. It's a great song, and I think it's a prime example of one of those times when we were able to take something going on in our lives..
..write about it, and kind of infuse the Neil Diamond sound that we were talking about for this record. It's got the horns on it, and it's got a great, kind of feel-good vibe to it. If you listen to the song you get a pretty clear picture of what it's about, but that's kind of where I'll leave it I guess.' WENN. Atty sent pix!
Jonas Brothers Rolling Stone excerpts: Joe, 'I think people don't realize
that when they're making fun of us, we're laughing too. Every South Park or whatever, it's like, 'That's hilarious.' Kevin, 'And we've heard it all going through high school. So it's like, whatever throw your shots. At the end of the day, I know who I am as a person. And I think people forget because of what we do that we grow up, too, and that we change. We have a life journey to go on ourselves.
Nick, 'When it comes to changing, music may change, our lives may change, but who we are as people will not. I believe that the people that we were before we started the band are the same people we are today. We've just grown up.'
Joe on 'Much Better': 'Relationships give you ideas of what to write about but sometimes it's hard to be honest. I mean, you have to be, but it's like, 'I don't really want to say anything bad about this person but I'm just going to write it.' That's just how it goes.'
Nick going to college? 'Nick thinks he might someday study English literature, though he says, 'I'm not big on reading...I love writing, but when I try to keep a journal, I'll write a couple of things on a page and be like, 'That was pointless; I should just write a song about it.' Nick is confident their music will win over a..
..new audience: 'You
know, that saying that perception is everything is not entirely true.
But there's a side of it that is, and we just hope that if someone
comes to a show, they'll see that we play our instruments and come
away with a better understanding of what we do. But, we're not afraid
of where we come from and who knows if we'd be where we are today if
that perception wasn't there.'
From Amanda: The Jonas Brothers went to the 10:10 PM showing of The Hangover at the Grapevine Mills Mall. My sister was there to the premiere of Transformers 2 and everyone began to realize that they were in theater 6.
When my sister went over to see if she could get in, Big Rob was standing at the theater door and told her that no one was allowed in unless they had originally bought a ticket for that movie. Kevin brought his girlfriend, Danielle Deleasa. Apparently, bodyguards were all over them & no one could get near them.
Nick Jonas testified before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in Washington, DC about Diabetes research. He wants to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Thanks Denise!
Be sure to pick up the Jonas Brothers red hot Rolling Stone issue! Nick met President Barack Obama today to talk about diabetes. He told People
outside of the Executive Mansion that Obama came up and thanked me for meeting
his daughters and playing for
them. Nick said: 'It's a pleasure to meet you.'
He said, 'It's a pleasure
to meet you, too.' Then we took a picture with about 100 kids.' According to Washington Examiner, Nick met with Nancy Pelosi on Capitol Hill. He went shopping in Georgetown at Barney's CO-OP & lunched at Pizzeria Uno on M Street.
Nick also met Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-NJ,
to discuss juvenile diabetes and the organization he started that
raises money for the disease he's suffers from. Tomorrow he will testify before the
Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs about diabetes.
