To the Jonas Brothers fan girls everywhere, it is of utmost sadness that we confirm the group’s official disbanding. Tissues, guys?
Posted by Kate Alvarez as Nick Jonas at 9:00 AM EST on Apr, 22 2010
His Hollywood career went sour overnight, so he became a retail salesman to help pay for his luxurious lifestyle.
Kidding! Nick Jonas played a prank for CBS’s gag show, I Get That A Lot. It features celebrities fooling normal people in a case of supposed mistaken identity. They pretend to working ordinary jobs, while confusing customers who can’t decide if he/she is really the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike, hence the line, “I get that a lot!”
For the latest episode, Nick dressed up as a nerdy employee of retail store Forever 21. The episode was shot on Monday afternoon at an LA branch of the store. After repeatedly denying that he is 1/3 of the famous Jonas Brothers, Nick finally took off his geeky glasses and greeted his fans outside after they wrapped up the shoot.
Good one, Nick! Now you know why he’s my favorite Jonas.

Nick has always been my favorite Jonas. Years from now, the famous Jonas Brothers will inevitably split up and do their own things.
Joe Jonas, the hot one, will predictable go through the perils of Hollywood stardom as he slowly loses his cuteness to age. Kevin Jonas, the married one, will fall prey to early retirement as he raises a good Christian family. Nick, the sensible one, will most likely succeed in launching a solo career.
Sure, Nick Jonas and the Administration wasn’t exactly a grand “sideline project,” but it was a promising attempt at being his own person. Nick strikes me as the smartest and most levelheaded Jonas, so that’s one less Jonas to worry about in the future.
Kudos to Parade magazine for picking the 17-year-old to be on their latest cover. The interview tells us what makes this Jonas stand out from the famous Disney trio. “Nick is such a serious guy that his family calls him Mr. Prez,” wrote Jeanne Wolf.
“I’ve always been quite driven,” Nick told Parade. “I take after my father. He’s a driven person. He’s also a leader. He does a great job as a mentor to all of us.”
If he keeps it up, I doubt there’s going to be any drug-related stories on this Jonas in the years to come. It’s Bieber who we should look out for.
Check out Nick’s exclusive photo shoot with Parade here or pick up your copy of their latest issue, now out in newsstands.
Out with the old, in with the new.
Disney couple Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas have called it quits, according to People. The source revealed that the two broke up early March because they are too swamped with work. And if you believe their PR, the two “will always have a super strong connection.”
I doubt there’s even going to be any breakup drama. Besides having no solid foundation to begin with, the two are extremely busy with new projects. Nick will be busy touring with the Jonas Brothers this summer, while Selena will be filming a new movie in Europe, as soon as she’s done promoting her new album Kiss and Tell.
Not only that, the 17-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place actress is also the latest celebrity to launch her own fashion line. She teamed up with Kmart for a budget-friendly juniors fashion line called Dream Out Loud.
Just as we predicted, the line mirrors the teen queen’s personal style. Come July, you can shop for Dream Out Loud apparel, handbags, belts, scarves, hats, hair accessories, socks and hosiery.
With a schedule like that, who would even have time to mope around? Selena should be thankful she won’t go down the eating-chocolates-while-watching-sappy-chick-flicks route.
Are the Jonas Brothers starting a new trend in red carpet fashion? Is a pair of designer sunglasses really the cool thing to wear at award shows these days?
It was just too sunny that Saturday afternoon, so Kevin, Nick, and Joe had to cover up in their Rayban shades. They even took the stunners off (as they tried their best not to squint) for the photographers at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
I can feel the sales profits of Raybans increasing as I type in these words.
Since the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards caters to the younger market, you’re sure to spot a number of stylish and wardrobe-experimental dudes on the red carpet, or in this year’s case—the orange carpet.
(L-R) Musicians Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas of The Jonas Brothers suited up in different designer labels. Kevin’s suit and shoes were by Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers; Joe wore a Hugo suit and Sperry Topsider shoes; while Nick opted for a D&G suit.
It’s in the kicks, I’m tellin’ ya! Singer Justin Bieber spruces up what would have been another monochrome outfit with his neon green sneaks.
As if we haven’t had enough of the Jonas Brothers, Disney is giving viewers the second serving of Jonas Brothers: Living The Dream.
Jonas Brothers: Living The Dream 2 follows Kevin, Joe, and Nick on the road during their Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009 across Europe, with stops in France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland and England. The new installment will premiere on March 21 (8:55 p.m., ET/PT) on the Disney Channel.
Aww, young love. Disney darlings Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez, both 17 years old, played a sweet round of golf last Sunday in LA. The youngest Jonas got into the Olympic spirit as he sported a Polo U.S.A. jacket all afternoon.
I think I know who the better swinger is. Sorry, Selena, but I don’t think you can work your wizard spells on the greens!
He did insist that it’s just a sideline project. When Nick Jonas produced his solo album Nick Jonas and The Administration, he reassured fans that he wasn’t looking to escape the famous Jonas Brothers. He just wanted to do something with four other musicians that he worked with before.
The album is now out for public consumption and of course, criticism. Todd Martens of the LA Times wrote, “Jonas is 17 going on John Mayer, at least in spirit, crafting lightly adorned melodies that dip briefly into blues and soul.”
His main single, “Who I Am,” has the familiar Jonas flavor in it, while other songs such as “State of Emergency” and “Conspiracy Theory” are all about the blues and grown-up rock, which may be a little too much for the 17-year-old to handle.
While it’s an impressive effort at going against mainstream, he is still a part of the Jonas Brothers and a teenager who pulls juvenile pranks in his Hannah Montana-ish TV sitcom.
Give it time, Nick. A few more years and life’s growing pains will sink in. Then when all the screaming teens and tweens have long gone, the blues will rock out naturally.
Did you hear the resounding gasp of one million teenage girls worldwide? That natural phenomenon occurred when Denise Jonas, mother of the famous Disney pop trio Jonas Brothers, confirmed that the youngest Jonas is working on a solo project.
â€œItâ€™s called Nick Jonas and The Administration,â€ Mama Jonas told Parade.com yesterday. â€œShhh! Heâ€™s at the photo shoot for the album cover right now,â€ she said during the interview.
Nick has told fans not to worry, because it doesnâ€™t mean theyâ€™re breaking up. In the bandâ€™s official MySpace blog, they reassured everyone that itâ€™s just a side project. â€œWeâ€™ve said from the beginning of our career as the Jonas Brothers that anything we do outside of the group is a side project because you canâ€™t break up brothers,â€ Nick wrote.
Nickâ€™s solo project will be launched in early 2010. The album is in collaboration with four unnamed musicians that Nick worked with in the past. Other than Nickâ€™s side project, the brothers have planned another world tour next summer.
â€œA three chord strand is not easily broken,â€ Nick added. â€œAnd one thingâ€™s for sureâ€¦ this three chord strand is stronger now than itâ€™s ever been.â€ That sounds like a cheesy pop tune this trio would sing.
So Miley and Justin have really split. The guy confessed that he is utterly miserable, and what has been Miley up to? She says that she has reconnected with ex Nick Jonas. They’ve always been best friends, she said, and who knows what the future may hold? Yup, you’re very very young, girl.
