In his younger days as one-third of The Jonas Brothers, the DNCE frontman was barred from talking about sex and romance, for obvious reasons.
“Hollywood Records were under Disney,” he tells NOTION, “and obviously just the age we were, we had to be careful with the certain things we wrote and said.” He continues:
“We couldn’t be too sexual or romantic in certain ways. And that’s tough because at the same time you’re growing up and you want to write about these experiences you’re having as a young adult.”
Now being older, there’s [sic] new experiences that I get to have, or just as an adult, like touring and traveling… you go out for a few drinks after the show.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Jonas talks about his reinvention as your garden-variety, everyday, totally smoldering pop star, and his theoretically raunchy video for their new song, “Body Moves.”
The below video takes a behind-the-scenes glance at his “School Spirit” shoot for the mag with photographer Jack Bridgland, where Jonas strikes some “moody, misunderstood, handsome rebel loner” poses in a series of sleeveless denim jackets and slinky sportswear.
