Although one wouldn’t immediately think that the [artist id="20881828"]Jonas Brothers[/artist] and [artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] have a whole lot in common artistically, they certainly seem to be on the same wavelength when it comes to song titles. ‘Ye recently released his Rihanna-starring music video for “Paranoid,” which happens to be the name of the JoBros’ first single off their new album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times.
“We want to do a mash-up of [both 'Paranoid' songs],” Nick Jonas told MTV News. “So, if [Kanye]‘s watching, I think it’d be awesome!”
While the Jonas Brothers’ video features all three guys wrestling and driving fast cars, instead of [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist], the brothers think they might gain some new fans out of the confusion between West’s track and theirs.
“Some guy heard [Kanye] did the song and wanted to download it and heard [our version] and never heard of the Jonas Brothers before,” Kevin said. “And now he’s bringing his family to the show. … I made that completely up. That didn’t happen!”
Kevin decided not to further elaborate whether this “Paranoid” story is the first or last time you’ll see him making up anecdotes for the sake of comedy. “Trust me,” he said, jokingly adding the statement that made both Joe and Nick very nervous. “We don’t ever tell the truth in interviews.”
