A cool interview with our favorite Guys, from the The Insider. They filmed it while in the Bahamas last weekend where they played a (fairly intimate) show for some contest winners and other very lucky people at the Atlantis resort.
They cover: the Bahamas, the joy of playing all types of shows, the Grammys, JONAS, looking back with gratitude and reveling in their ability to give back to the people who believed in them all along the way and to charity, Change for the Children, being inspirational, diabetes, “Girl of My Dreams” and “Joyful Kings“, New Year’s Eve, Honor Society, and their new album (they have all of the songs written!). All this in under 6 minutes!
But, my favorite part of the interview, hands down, is their discussion about Jonas family Christmas traditions. They touch on decorating the tree, making cookies (Joe just made some the other day), and Nick laments the torture of mid-gift-opening clean-up imposed by Papa J (and Kevin?) which turns the opening of 5 gifts into a two and a half hour event.
Hear about the Jonas Christmas morning, and everything else, after the jump. Plus an Update!
They begin talking about Christmas at 3:55. Nick is getting really good at exposing little contentious Jonas tidbits (like forgetting Kevin’s birthday). Notice Kevin’s face when Nick starts, and how Joe leans back as if he is saying “I am not going to get in the middle of this discussion again” as Kevin gives Nick the “it makes complete sense to keep things tidy” look. Ah, the joys of family.
What you will need for your very own Jonas Christmas:
- Pajamas √
- Trash Bags √
- Time to Spare √
I have been there, Nick, frustrated about enforced tradition. You have to realize that your parents are tenuously holding on to their last family Christmas mornings. Soon enough, everything will be different. There will spouses, babies, the desire to be fully dressed, and you will be dreaming of the time when it was so ridiculously structured, and you and your brothers could be strewn around the room, curled up with mugs of hot cocoa all hoping to be the last one who gets to open their gift. Enjoy it.
Some cute additional footage from The Insider including Kevin’s reaction to his dad asking about recent rumors (1:00).
And..umm..is it me, or does the lady totally say “get your ti*s now” at the end of this clip?
