Nick Jonas Meets the President, Storms the Hill

It takes more than another Jet Ski ride with Miley Cyrus to pull Nick Jonas away from his brothers and his tour. It takes official White House business.

After spending quality time with Sasha and Malia Obama on two previous occasions, the little JoBro had an important date with the president yesterday.

The 16-year-old is in Washington, D.C., to meet with lawmakers on behalf of diabetes research. He'll testify before the Senate Homeland and Government Affairs Committee at a hearing today, but yesterday he started at the very top, meeting with Barack Obama for the first time.

The teen was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago and works with the Juvenile Disease Research Foundation. In typical Jonas fashion, he wore a button-down shirt and jacket with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows for his face time with the commander in chief. He later met with Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey on Capitol Hill.

Sugar Ray Leonard and Mary Tyler Moore are among the other boldfaced names joining him on his mission today.

We can see the bumper stickers now—"Nick Jonas for President!"
