Happy birthday, Joe Jonas! Today the multi-hyphenate performer turns 23.
Luckily, just one day before the singer/actor/reality TV mentor celebrated his big day, MTV News got the chance to chat with him about it. And during the discussion, he dished on how he plans to celebrate it with fellow mentors from the new CW singing competition show, “The Next.”
“The hanging out process has been great, being able to kick it back with them off camera,” he said of his co-stars on the show. “We hang out almost every episode, every city were in. Obviously, like L.A., we’re all home or whatever, so I don’t get to see them as much. But it’ll be fun tomorrow. My birthday’s tomorrow so they’re throwing me a birthday party. So John [Rich] and Gloria [Estefan] and Nelly are going to be there.”
But it won’t be Joe’s first b-day bash that Nelly attended. “And I had a birthday party a few days ago and Nelly came out for that,” he recalled. “He came in early. Me and Nelly perform on an episode recently together. That was just a trip getting on stage with him.”
Joe’s 23rd year is set to be a big one for him. With his Disney days behind him, he is looking to make some more grown-up moves, both solo and with his Jonas Brothers by his side. First up, this Thursday (August 16), “The Next” premieres. On it, he and the other celebrity mentors travel the country to help aspiring singers get a push toward stardom. He will also appear on big brother Kevin’s reality show, “Married To Jonas,” which kicks off this Sunday on E!
And, of course, more new music is on the horizon. All three JoBros have been busy in the studio working on their next album , their first since leaving Hollywood Records. Fans could hear new music by the end of the year.
