The pop princess has a special place in his heart. They go way back.
"The first CD that I ever bought was Britney Spears," Jonas told me the other day while promoting "See No More," the first single off his upcoming debut solo album. "It was at a 7-Eleven and I was like, 'Can I get this?' It was literally her EP and I picked it up and, of course, I fell in love with her. It was an early crush for me."
How serious was the young Jonas' crush? Well, he had a poster of Brit on his bedroom wall. "It was the innocent looking picture," he said with a smile. "I think she was in a pink T-shirt."
Jonas said his camp was talking to Spear's about hitting the road together for her Femme Fatale tour "At one point we were considering that," he said. "But they wanted to go with an all-girl tour, which is really understandable. Nicki Minaj is fantastic. So I have a couple of other options this summer that are looking pretty good. Nothing's really confirmed yet, whether it's going to be supporting someone on tour or just going out solo."
While Jonas isn't keen to talking about his private life, he admits the song, "I'm Sorry," is based on one of his relationships. "'I'm Sorry' is really honest," he said. It's saying, I screwed up. I didn't cheat on the person, but just I messed up and I wanted the person back. I'm just putting it all on the table saying, 'I'm sorry. I wish I could have you back.'"
He realizes that fans will scrutinize every word to try and figure out who he's singing about because he's famously dated Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Twilight's Ashley Greene and Camilla Belle. "Those kind of songs are really hard because you know that person is going to hear it," he said. "[But] I've never really reached out to somebody about a song. I feel every artist is entitled to write honestly. So I've never reached out to them unless they reached out to me."
That's not all I have for you from Mr. Jonas. Make sure to come back here later on to find out what he told me about who he'd love to sing with (besides Britney, of course), his secret movie project and so much more.
