When our “Bigger Than The Buzz” producers asked us which celebrities we’d want to appear on our episode 5 of “Bigger Than The Buzz,” we had only three answers. Oprah, Kate Middleton and Joe Jonas. Oprah was busy (whatEVER), Kate Middleton declined but sent us a lovely box of macrons. And Joe Jonas stepped up to the plate, making him our very first celebrity guest! (Also, Oprah and Kate Middleton are OFF my Christmas card list.)
So, not only did MTV News’ James Montgomery and I get to share a tall, cool glass of milk with Joe, but we got a chance to find out his take on the VMAs — he’s a VMA presenter, and he’ll be kicking off VMA weekend by performing live at mtvU’s VMA Concert to Benefit Lifebeat – Music Fights HIV concert with Cobra Starship and Miguel. And, since he’s going on tour with Britney Spears, he told us what he plans to steal from her dressing room. Watch out, Brit. If your feather boa goes missing, you know who to call.
Also, inspired by my current favorite video — Chromeo’s dangerously fertile “When The Night Falls” video — James, Joe and I discussed artists who are so hot they should come with their own birth control. Joe Jonas’ answer: Michael Bolton. AMAZING! And speaking of babies, we speculated on Lady Gaga’s VMA opening performance. If I were running things, I’d try to arrange for Lady Gaga to give birth to a baby Gaga wearing a meat dress. Wait… What? No? Not gonna happen? Okay, that’s not gonna happen. She’s probably got something even than that bigger planned.
We also got Joe Jonas’ style tips for guys (specifically, for James). What it comes down to is that “fashion hurts.” Amen, (Jonas) brother.
And for you Joe Jonas fans out there who wanna know what Joe’s like in person, well, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that he’s not only incredibly down-to-earth — he arrived on set with almost no entourage, excited to be part of the show (“I saw the show! It’s really fun. But why milk?” he asked me before the cameras started rolling), but he’s also dangerously funny and really knows his shiz when it comes to music. Actually, I’m a little worried they’ll replace me with him. Anyway, big thanks to Joe Jonas for being our first celebrity guest on “Bigger Than The Buzz.” (And also, please don’t take my job.)
