Jonas Brothers “New York Times” interview excerpts: Joe on how his solo album would sound: “It would gradjitate towards Kings of Leon and MGMT.” Two bands who enjoy the occasional chemical relaxant.
Joe said he’s less rock’n’roll than mom Denise: “My mom wanted me to take some medicine on the plane to fall asleep. and I didn’t take it. I was trying to prove to her that I could fall asleep without it. And I was right.”
Their new song “WWIII” is an explicit address to a girlfriend whose combative nature seems to be making the relationship untenable. Nick admitted: “I wrote it out of personal experience. It was about this relationship. This person kept on fighting, and making out like it was world war three, when it was really a one-sided battle. It was just them coming at you, and you don’t really have any problem.”
After meeting on the Hannah set, Miley and Nick started dating. Miley: “We became boyfriend and girlfriend on the day we met. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights, and so I did that. And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, I want to make my hair black now, I don’t want to look pretty. I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be.”
Nick: “I don’t know that I was the reason she dyed her hair black. But we are very good friends now, and that’s what’s important.”
