Maybe the awkwardness of having to share love life details with someone old enough to be your grand great-grandfather had something to do with this.
The Jonas Brothers were being interviewed by Larry King Thursday night, when the subject of the boys' status came up.
"How are you doing in the female situation, Joe?" asked King. "Do you have a girlfriend?"
"Yes, I do," a clearly uncomfortable Joe replied.
King proceeded to ask Joe if his girlfriend was as famous as Nick's, obviously referring to Miley Cyrus and the rumors that the two are once again an item.
And then it happened…
"I don't think anybody is as famous as Miley Cyrus," blurted Joe, somewhat confirming that she's back with Nick.
This, naturally, led to what felt like hours of a lot of hemming and hawing, before Kevin eventually piped in as the voice of reason.
"It is kind of weird for people all around the world to be concerned about a 16-year-old's love life."
Looks like all of us could use a collective shower.
