I have a newfound respect for Nick Jonas, because he just said he laughed through his ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus‘ performance at the VMAs this year, which is no small feat as far as I’m concerned. I mean, we all saw that display. It was no laughing matter. I’ve taken a lot of heat on this website for my responses to Miley and her highly erratic (and highly naked) behavior of late, but I stand by them.
I have no problem admitting that I was watching that twerky spectacle open-mouthed and nauseated. I wasn’t in a laughing place, and my parts have never been anywhere near Miley’s parts. So how was an ex-boyfriend of hers able to smile and laugh and experience human emotions while all of my organs were slowly shutting down in protest? It defies understanding.
But all three of The Jonas Brothers seem to have watched that go down, and unsurprisingly, that topic was brought up in a recent interview they did with Out Magazine. Joe Jonas had more rational things to say about it:
“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.”
That’s a pretty politically correct quote, but I think it’s also clearly the nice boy way of saying, “Girl, there’s gotta be another way. We get it, you’re an adult now — but nobody needs to see that.”
Whereas Nick’s quote is more the nice boy way of saying, “OMG ROFLMAO WTF”:
“She’s smart. She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her. She’ll always be successful. [The performance] was funny — I was laughing.”
Laughing? Really? Wow. I guess when your arms are as big as they inexplicably are (I’m not complaining, but why Nick Jonas? why?), it leaves you a lot of extra muscle for controlling your gag reflex while watching an ex-girlfriend educate an innocent foam finger. As the proud owner of a pair of genuwine noodle arms, I really wouldn’t know.
As a side note — lesser Jonas Kevin might have had things to say on this topic as well, but I really don’t care what he thinks. Deal with it.
