I love this man, I swear I do. And to all of you bandwagon fans: it’s okay, I welcome you aboard–I mean, I do understand after all.
Nick Jonas, God’s wonderful blessing to us all, has returned to the music scene, once again, with a full-on solo career. As most of you know, he was previously in the band Jonas Brothers, with his brothers Kevin and Joe, and briefly entertained a side project, also known as Nick Jonas & the Administration. The three also starred in a few Disney films, like Camp Rock, and had their own television show, Jonas L.A–which occasionally featured their little brother, Frankie. Now little Nicky isn’t so little anymore, and I must say, both Hollywood and social media are losing their shxt!
Things seemed to pick up a bit when Nick released his song Jealous, which, surprisingly, has an awesome R&B vibe. I remember first hearing the song on the radio and not recognizing that it was him–and then obviously freaking out when I realized it was! Personally, I find the music video a bit silly and ridiculous, but it takes nothing away from the song–and it doesn’t hurt that the man behind the voice is basically an angel.
People later went crazy because…well, you saw the pics! Like I said, Nick grew up and he let the world know it! After first posting some personal pictures showing a bit of bare chest, and later posing shirtless for a few other magazines, my boy took home the prize by doing a shoot for Flaunt Magazine that was nearly identical to the 1992 Calvin Klein shoot of the beautiful Mark Wahlberg–check out his accent in the video below! #throwbackthursday for sure!
I won’t post any more of the pictures because you can search for those yourselves–and my mother happens to read this blog! But you get the drift; times, they are a changin’.
Nick just released a new album entitled, Nick Jonas; he’s one of the stars in the drama television series, Kingdom, which airs on Audience TV; he just told the world on the Wendy Williams’s talk show that he’s no longer a virgin–this really only matters to you if you cared about them back then and were aware that he and his brothers wore purity rings; and he’s even dating Miss Universe. Miss freaking Universe people! Recently, he released a super awesome gospel version of his song Jealous, which is all of the buzz and surpassed 3 million views today. Check it out below!
I remember when people would laugh at me for liking the Jonas Brothers and even more so for loving Nick. Granted, he is a bit younger than me, and I did continue to like them well into my adulthood–you know, when they were a bit played out. But what did that matter? Don’t believe me? Check this:
When I was 18, my then boyfriend got me several lovely gifts for Valentines Day: A singing stuffed animal–classic; the new India Arie album at the time–because I love her of course; and dinner and a movie– you know, the norm. Oh wait! I forgot to mention that he also gifted me with two very large posters of both The Jonas Brothers posing for Rolling Stone and one of Nick posing alone. Yes people, it was something serious! I still have them and I will never regret bringing them to college and hanging them up in my dorm room.
(Yes, that really is me & I was super hot, I know…let’s move on! Here is my dorm room freshman year, 2009. Tinkerbell was for my roommate.)
But as they say, “haters gonna hate & ainters gonna aint,” people! (Shoutout to the new Seth Rogan and James Franco movie, The Interview! It’ll be released on Christmas Day.) No matter what, I will always be a Nick Jonas fan. I’ve been down since day one and that is never gonna change. And since I know he’ll never see this, we can totes still get married and have the cutest babies! Ha! If you want to see the actual posters, they’ll be on my instagram. Be sure to check out Nick’s new album on iTunes, follow him on twitter, instagram, and subscribe to his Vevo YouTube Channel. Until then folks, try not to get too jealous, eh?
