While this headline certainly feels like an almost nonsensical mash-up of hyper-trendy pop-culture buzzwords, it is actually something that happened on Planet Earth, and we feel the need to tell you about it. In a recent interview with Out.com, The Jonas Brothers discuss everything from gay rumors to booty shaking. While we expected the squinty eyed muscle trio (seriously, do they ever open their eyes fully in pictures?) to re-hash some media-safe public relations jargon, they actually ended up saying some pretty interesting stuff.
Here are some highlights:
On Miley’s infamous VMA performance:
Joe: [Hesitates] It wasn’t my favorite performance of hers. I think that there’s one way of saying you’ve grown up, and there’s another way — I think that’s her way. Look, people are talking about it, so I think it’s working for what she wants.
Nick Jonas: She’s smart. She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her.
Joe: I’m great [with twerking]. I’m with it.
Nick: I’m against it. I’ve just reached my limit. It’s just done. It’s too much.
Joe: Bring it on. I’m a fan. I just think it’s appropriate for the right people. Not everyone can twerk.
Nick: Anybody that’s on Diplo’s page — have you seen his Instagram? It’s impressive.
Kevin: I’m straight down the middle. The right amount at the right time.
And, of course, on the gays:
Joe: We have a lot of gay friends and gay fans. It’s a boy band stereotype; people assume, but we don’t take offense.
Nick: Prior to us being a band, I was a super theater geek. I loved theater and I still do, and I care about fashion, and I care about a lot of things that I feel like stereotypes are attached to.
Joe: [Being in Out] is a moment for us for sure. We keep saying, “Well, it’s about time.”
