In a new Out Magazine interview, Nick Jonas defended his ex-girlfriend, Miley Cyrus' racy MTV VMA performance. As he commented, "she's smart. She's very smart. We've always known that about her. She'll always be successful. [The performance] was funny - I was laughing."
In this interview, Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas talked about their upcoming fifth studio album, "V." Here's a look at what we learned from this interview.
Nick Is a Nicer Ex-Boyfriend Than Joe
No matter what kind of controversies Miley's had to deal with, Nick has always takes the high road when it comes to his ex. He continues to speak highly of her, and to always wish her well. It's obvious that he still cares about her, even if no longer in the romantic sense.
Joe Jonas could stand to follow his younger brother's example. In a recent interview with Joan Rivers, Joe joked about how he wasn't the only one to have dumped Taylor Swift. The guy broke up with her five years ago, and he's still taking digs?
The Jonas Brothers Are Divided On The Issue of Twerking
When the question about twerking came up, the brothers were a bit divided. While Nick has "reached his limit," Joe was open to it. "I just think it's appropriate for the right people. Not everyone can twerk."
Kevin Jonas fell somewhere in the middle. "I'm straight down the middle. The right amount at the right time."
The Jonas Brothers Are Not Bothered By Gay Rumors
Despite the fact that Kevin is married, and that Joe and Nick have had girlfriends, speculation has occasionally floated around about their sexual orientation. Still, the Jonas boys don't let it affect them.
As Joe explained, "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 added, "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."
Now That They're More Mature, They're Taking More Control Of Their Music
Their upcoming album is their first as a band in four years. Taking a break has benefited the three brothers. As Kevin explained, "taking that break was so nice because we worked our asses off, but we did things for ourselves. Then, we came back at the right time to do this all over again."
Now that they're more mature, they're ready to take a more active role in what kind of music they produce. As Joe explained, "You get to this point where you can't live your life trying to satisfy everybody, personally or as a musician. Somebody's going to find something negative. So we were like, Let's just be who we are and have opinions - whether it's on politics or music - and really show who we are as people."
