Joe, Nick and Kevin are back together with a new album and a tour. “Pom Poms” is the debut single off their fifth studio album. The tour brings them to Vegas on August 10th at Mandalay Bay.
Joe checked in with the Zoo and talked about how fans still perceive the brothers as Disney kids. “My brother is in his mid-20?s. I’m 23 and so, it’s been quite awhile and sometimes people lose sight of our age,” says Joe. “We just laugh it off.”
It has been a few years since the JoBros have been on the road together. They are in the middle of a 25-plus city world tour. Joe says that while they love playing music together, there are times when they get on each other’s nerves. “We’re brothers ya’ know,” says Joe. “So, there’s definitely times when we want to throw each other trough the walls.”

Joe Jonas called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to chat about the Jonas Brothers upcoming tour, his fan video spoof, and the meaning behind the title of the JoBros latest single “Pom Poms.”
On The Meaning of Pom Poms:
“There is a lot of nicknames for pom poms…headlights, some of which I could get in trouble for saying on national air. I think it’s self explanatory what pom poms means.” So, does Joe have a pom poms preference, real or artificial? “I would have to go with real, but I don’t discriminate…everybody loves everybody, and there is room for love.” Joe went on to explain, “There is actually a statistic of where the most real and fake pom poms are in the world.”
On Fan Video Spoof:
Joe received a video message from a Pepperdine student asking him to take her to the school formal. Unfortunately he was unable to attend the dance, but he did respond by making a video of himself laying in front of a fireplace in a sexy pose to the sound of Wham. “We filmed it in about 10 minutes. Me and my buddies we were trying to figure out to make this girl smile and it kind of came together perfectly,” Joe tells us. “I’m trying to put on my best sexy pose for this girl to try to get her to be my date instead.” Watch the video here.

Around these parts of the world wide web, we’ve been die-hard devotees of Joe Jonas ever since we first laid eyes on those exemplary eyebrows in the Jonas Brothers’ “Burnin’ Up” music video. We’ve watched him blossom into a bonafide fashion force, Heisman-ing in shiny pants for campaigns and totally FROWING (hat tip to Buzz Bissinger). If all this hasn’t pulled you into the warm vortex of middle Jo Bro fandom, perhaps this video Joe made in response to Pepperdine University senior Shaina’s invitation to be her date for her very last sorority formal will convert you. It. Is. AWESOME. While we typically reserve our beloved Look By Look franchise for music videos, this short is just too hilarious not to share. Lucky for us, Joe also crams five outfit-changes into a little under 2.5 minutes, fully warranting a comprehensive breakdown.
FIRESIDE TALLADEGA NIGHTS
We’ve re-watched this video response at least eight times now and still can’t make sense of why Joe opens this thing wearing Will Ferrell’s Wonder Bread racing jumpsuit from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, but that’s what he’s doing. Joe sports the NASCAR suiting (taking a page from Bieber’s book?) while laying on his side in front of a digital fireplace for absolutely no reason other than the fact that it’s hilariously irreverent. Are you hooked yet?
FINALLY. We know Joe’s secret eyebrow-perfecting weapon: A GIANT PAIR OF DESK SCISSORS! Are those Fiskars?
‘BEST SHIRTLESS PERFORMANCE’ LATE-ADD?
We recognize that we have the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on the brain (also, that this technically isn’t a movie so what we’re about to ask could NEVER happen), but likeeeeee, can this clip of Joe be a late-add nominee for Best Shirtless Performance??? I mean, the way he’s pondering off in the distance, that furrowed BROW (I know I know, enough with his eyebrows), the subtle hint of chest hair, and THAT wine-colored blazer with the contrast black satin shawl collar! We’d vote for it.
NAVY BLAZER, PARTY OF TWO
Shrugging on a DIFFERENT exquisitely tailored blazer, this time navy blue with (SURPRISE!) a shirt underneath, Joe sets a table for two with the other seat reserved for Shaina. AWWWWwwww! What a dreamboat.
SUN’S OUT, GUNS OUT
Wait. Hold on. We weren’t ready for this. This escalated too quickly. Ringer U.S.A. tank top with a face full of iron pumping? Perfect curlicue fringe? Bedroomy side-eye with a half-smile? THOSE TRICEPS?
AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! HIGHLY UNEXPECTED COMPRESSION SHORTS CAMEO. *dies, bursts into flames, rises from the ashes just to finish the post*
SHIRTLESS SAX SERENADE
The video ends with Joe back at the dinner table for two, but this time he’s jamming to a private serenade from an unintroduced shirtless saxophone player wearing very low-rise wax-coated pants, itsy bitsy suspenders, and a ponytail. Watch it all for yourself below!
I have come across two different kinds of people trying to make it — there are those that crave fame for itself and then there are those who love what they do because they can’t help it. The entertainment business is filled with people with different goals, motives, intentions, and dreams. Some are driven by the desire to be famous and simply seek the best way to get there. Because fame allows them the opportunity to make money and be recognized. To drive the newest Ferrari and pull it up to the latest Hollywood sushi hotspot just in time to have their picture taken. To have a yacht in Greece, loaded with 30 models living off of expensive champagne I’ve seen these people. The mercenaries. It might appear that they have it all, but in the end, do they? I meet young girls at our concerts who say to me that they want to be the next Lady Gaga. I ask them why, and many respond “Because I want to be famous.” You don’t want to be famous just to be famous. It can be a scary life. And then there are those who love what they do because they can’t help it. They are passionate because they can’t envision doing anything else. They are hungry for work — hungry because they have passion for what they do. The reason I keep doing this is because I can’t help myself. I enjoy music deeply. I grew up listening to my dad tell us: “Live like you’re at the bottom, even if you’re at the top.” Treat people with the respect that they deserve. Know that it is very easy for everything you’ve been blessed with to disappear in a flash. Listen, I’m sure a lot of people reading this think it’s easy for me to say these things. I’m part of a band that made it. But trust me, there were roadblocks and setbacks along the way. Many people don’t remember this, but our band was dropped from our first label after our album didn’t meet their expectations. And my recent solo effort didn’t exactly set the charts on fire. But none of that changes the way I feel about music, or its centrality to my life and my career. If there is anything to take away from this, it’s the importance of staying true to one’s self. Do things because you believe in them and because they make you happy, not for some ulterior motive.

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 is not going to shave off his facial hair this month of November for “Movember” as well as to raise awareness and Money for Prostate Cancer. You can donate to his page by going to the source below.

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.
