Jonas Brothers: All Grown Up

10.1.2013

By Sam Lansky

The Brothers Jonas on their first new album in four years, those pesky gay rumors, and (what else?) twerking

On those gay rumors

Joe: We have a lot of gay friends and gay fans. It’s a boy band stereotype; people assume, but we don’t take offense.

Nick: Prior to us being a band, I was a super theater geek. I loved theater and I still do, and I care about fashion, and I care about a lot of things that I feel like stereotypes are attached to.

Joe: [Being in Out] is a moment for us for sure. We keep saying, “Well, it’s about time.”

On leaving their label, Hollywood Records

Nick: I think we realized that, creatively, we were in very different places.

Joe: We were in that place where we were starting to think about being able to make our grown-up record. We didn’t want to talk about if they would put a parental advisory label on it.

On heeding Demi Lovato’s [who dated Joe Jonas] call for a moratorium on twerking

Joe: I’m great [with twerking]. I’m with it.

Nick: I’m against it. I’ve just reached my limit. It’s just done. It’s too much.

Joe: Bring it on. I’m a fan. I just think it’s appropriate for the right people. Not everyone can twerk.

Nick: Anybody that’s on Diplo’s page — have you seen his Instagram? It’s impressive.

Kevin: I’m straight down the middle. The right amount at the right time.
