ClevverTV gives an exclusive insider look at the commercial and photoshoot for the 2013 ACUVUE® 1-DAY Contest. We go behind the scenes with the celebrity mentors — Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, Dwight Howard and Shay Mitchell — and our Dana Ward asks each star about following their dreams and how fans can win the chance to have one of these stars as a mentor.
It’s been four years since the Jonas Brothers released their last album, but middle brother Joe hasn’t been taking a break by any means.
Not only did he release a solo album, Fastlife, in 2011, he has also starred on brother Kevin’s reality show Married to Jonas (the series’ second season premieres this spring), just wrapped a tour of South America with his brothers, and has a new Jonas Brothers album in the works.
Plus, Joe has returned for a third year as a mentor to a teen for ACUVUE’s 1-Day contest. “I continue to have dreams that I want to accomplish, and the fact that I’m able to hear their stories and somehow, through what I’ve gone through, I can help them,” he said.
The singer, 23, talked to Parade.com about the new Jonas Brothers album, filming Married to Jonas, and why he’s still gunning for a Grammy win.
On the Jonas Brothers new album (no release date yet!).
“My brothers and I have been working on an album for the last about seven, eight months now and we have just finished. I’m really excited about sharing with the fans and keeping it under lock and key until that time comes up, and it’s been a very exciting process. Nick’s been producing all the music so we really have been the chefs in the kitchen with our project.”
On what the album will sound like.
“I like when people are able to come up with their own personal feelings on it. But what I can say is we used some brass in the music. We’ve been able to incorporate a lot more instruments, and even Nick, used some of the electronic drums and what his computer can do. It’s pretty phenomenal.”
On what other artists inspired the new album.
“A lot of old school music—not only blues, but soul music and also some dance music that we were listening to. On top of that, there are artists like Bruno Mars and a couple others that are really using a lot of instruments in their live music that they incorporate with the album. That’s what we’ve been trying to do.”
On how life has changed since the Jonas Brothers’ last album.
“I would say quite a lot! I mean, going from living in the same bedroom as three other brothers and working every day, to now being able to pick and choose opportunities, and I still get to do my music. I think my favorite piece now is that we have our own label and we have all of our rights to our music. We’re also able to create tours ourselves, from packaging a record to [deciding] what [the tour] looks like on a stage. Putting that all together has been a really exciting process.”
On the difference between international fans and American fans.
“International fans, I think because there’s a language barrier, are very physical and loud. So it’s exciting, but can be nerve-wracking sometimes. It’s a thrill to be able to have opportunities to go to these different cities and places that sometimes you can’t pronounce, and fans are singing the words to all your songs. It’s an overwhelming experience.”
On which he prefers: performing solo or with his brothers.
“I prefer being back with my brothers. I’ve learned over time that you really rely on them. When I did the solo project, it was a learning experience because I realized how much pressure you put on yourself, whether it is a live performance or even a recording or interviews. You get tired. When you have your brothers there, you’re not answering every question by yourself or you’re not performing every song by yourself, and that’s a great thing to able to experience, and also a learning tool.”
On whether he’ll go solo again.
“Maybe eventually, but as of right now, my priority is the band.”
On how Married to Jonas has changed the brothers’ dynamic.
“[While filming,] you’re always thinking about the fact that there’s a camera in your face, but I think it’s one of those things where you just be yourself. It is a little bit different because it’s the first time in our lives where we don’t have the opportunity to edit or say “let’s cut this,” like when we’ve done filming before. So now, actually having an official reality show is a little bit intense when it’s in somebody else’s hands. But at the same time, it’s a great way for the fans to also be able to see our music and how we’re a family.”
On what goals he still wants to achieve.
“I would love to be able to do more acting and even build my charity a bit more so I can reach more people. It would be an incredible opportunity to be nominated again for a Grammy and potentially win one.”

John Taylor, Joe Jonas’ best friend, joked that plans for a 3D concert movie scared him into action.
There is no better display of brotherly love, or Jonas Brothers-ly love, than by allowing your older bro to drive your super slick white Fisker Karma sports car, amirite? Because, just in case you’re unfamiliar, a Fisker is a totally fierce whip with a base sticker price of $100,000 (that’s without the bells and whistles, y’all), and Joe Jonas let his bro Kevin drive it! (Legit, there must be something about Fisker cars that inspire sharing, because remember when Justin Bieber gave his all Chrome Fisker to his pal Sean Kingston? Insanity.)
Yesterday afternoon, Joe (the proud owner of a brand-new rope tat) and Kevin Jonas were snapped going for an adorbz bro-to-bro lunch. After their double order of grilled cheese and tomato soup (we made that up, but how cute would it be if they ordered the same thing??), Kev and Joe casually sauntered back to their marshmallow-colored Fisker and rode off into the sunset. Truth time: I don’t even let my best friend in the entire world slip her same-size-as-mine foot in the two-seasons-ago designer shoes I bought on sale, so we have to give massive props to Joe for trusting his brother enough to drive his precious Fisker. #SharingIsCaring.
This Thanksgiving, we’re grateful for good health, family, friends…and these mega-hot guys! Find out if your celebrity crush made the list.
As a judge on the new CW show, The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep, Joe moved in with each contestant for 72 hours for the ultimate mentoring experience. We certainly wouldn’t mind being roomies with Joe!
Actor and singer Joe Jonas shares a peek at his life on the road as a pop star by premiering his newest video for the track “All This Time”. The single is taken from the young singer’s debut solo studio album “Fastlife”, which was released back in October 2011.
Though the album was launched quite some time ago, the video for “All This Time” just appeared online via the former Disney actor’s VEVO page. In the new clip, fans get to see the 23-year-old pop-rock star as he jumps from show to show doing rehearsals and a lot of dance numbers on stage with his band and back up dancers. In between the busy concert preparations, Jonas is also seen greeting, waving, and hugging screaming and delighted female fans who cannot seem to get enough of the Jonas Brothers member.
The upbeat video also features a good mix of raw, documentary-style footage of Jonas travelling the world to perform at different venues for his fans. The cameras also catch Jonas doing work on his music, tinkering with studio synthesizers and mixers, and then joining the parties at dance clubs.
There is of course the usual dose of meet-and-greet moments of the singer/dancer on the streets, a couple of quick montage scenes including the live audience, recording equipment, and a buff-looking dog during Jonas backstage rehearsals. All elements that make for a great road trip seem to be present in this fun-filled video.
“I think my life has been so crazy busy for the past year and a half, and I kind of wanted to show people a little bit more of what my life is about, bring them into it a little bit more, so that’s been a fun experience,” said Jonas to MTV news back in 2011 about his songs and solo album.

Joe Jonas has joked the rivalry between him and his brothers is like The Hunger Games.
The singer explained the level of sibling rivalry between the Jonas Brothers while in the recording studio.
Battling to be heard comes as second nature to Joe and his siblings Nick and Kevin when they are deciding what to include on their albums.
“I usually [win]. I will use weapons if need be,” Joe joked to MTV News. “Hunger Games in the studio.”
Nick confirmed there have been artistic scuffles while the group were laying down their new material.
When the discussions get really heated their management team is called to step in.
“No physical altercations, but yeah, you have to disagree to get what you want,” Nick revealed. “Disagree to agree. It works out because we have a voting system. Then we go to our management team if it doesn’t work. If you feel strongly about something, I think it’s always important to stick by it. The great thing, at the end of the day, is I think we all have a vision for where we want to go and know that we’re just trying got get the best out of [the sessions].”
Eldest brother Kevin diplomatically gave his opinion on their rows. The star refused to give a straight answer about which of the three of them usually gets their own way.
“I think we all do [win], in a weird way,” Kevin noted.

Finally after a few years of Joe mentioning how one day he was going to get an African related tattoo after his inspiring trip he did awhile back. He finally got one done this past week while Nick Jonas got “Mercy Forever” tatted on him. (Kevin already has two tattoos: Dani on his ring finger and a bird on his bicep). If you don’t know the meaning behind Joe’s tattoo below is some information:

The Mantra Tee [Mens]
In their personal and professional lives, Joe Jonas and his brothers always strive to bring awareness to issues and to help people in need. In this spirit, Joe collaborated with Me to We Style to design this eco-friendly, sweatshop-free T-shirt with a powerful message.
The T-shirt bears the message: BOA ME NA ME MMOA WO or “help me and let me help you.” It is a phrase that Joe picked up on a spiritual trip to southern Africa a few years ago, and it serves as a simple reminder that we can always do more to help other people, no matter how near or far. Together we can change the world. One helping hand at a time.
The 2012 MTV EMAs will broadcast from the Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany, on November 11, 2012.

Branching out from sibling boy band the Jonas Brothers, Joe Jonas released his solo debut ‘Fastlife’ in 2011.
Joe Jonas first gained fame as a teenager, as one-third of sibling boy band the Jonas Brothers. The pop-rock trio gained international fame and an adoring worldwide fan base—and even had their own TV show, “JONAS.” But after the band took a hiatus in 2010, Joe branched out to release his solo debut ‘Fastlife’ in 2011. The R&B- and dance-influenced album shows his maturity and evolution as an artist; the remix of single ‘Just in Love’ features a rap by Lil’ Wayne.
