Hey all you Jonas Brothers fans — do I have something for you! Kevin, Nick, and Joe were recently talked all about being authors (their book, Burning Up: On Tour with the Jonas Brothers, came out last month) and who picks up the check on a date! Check it out:
How does it feel to be authors?
Nick: It’s great. I haven’t even finished high school yet, so it’s very exciting.
Joe: It’s very exciting. It’s a cool feeling. It’s nice because it’s not just a storybook, but also a picture book. So we’re able to really express how we’re feeling about our lives, but able to show you what it’s like also, and that’s what I think I like about this book. I’m proud about this book.
Did you pick the photos?
Nick: Over time we started to pick some of our favorites and compiled all of these, and that was the book, and it all turned out great.
Kevin: We really actually looked at all of the pictures and went through one by one. I think we literally spent a full 24 hours on the phone over an amount of time — a couple of days between each of us talking about each picture, telling what was our favorite picture, favorite things. All the information there, we spent a lot of time writing out and working with the people helping us out.
Speaking of romance, are you old-fashioned guys that open doors for women and pay for the bills. Who should pay on a first date: boy, girl, or split?
All: We get the bills. Absolutely.
Split the bill ever?
Joe: No, never. We always take care of the bill.
Even if she insists?
Joe: Never, still don’t let her.
Nick: That would be the last date . . . Ha ha, just kidding.
Any fun date ideas that wouldn’t cost a lot of money?
Nick: If there’s a carnival in town, that’s always fun. All the games, too, are classic dating material.
So there you have it, girls. If you’re ever lucky enough to go on a date with a Jonas, head to the carnival and let him pay!
