This is the début of what I hope will be a frequent post – My Celebrity Highlight! I will highlight a celebrity, discuss why the celebrity peaks my interest and why they would be invited to my dream dinner party. Any celebrity featured in My Celebrity Highlight should feel free to contact me and accept this as a genuine invitation to join my dream dinner party!! lol 😉
I never got “into” the Jonas Brothers, they were just too bubble gum pop for me. But earlier this week I saw the début video for Joe Jonas’ solo single See No More (link below) and was impressed. Now one thing many of my celebs of the week will have in common – good looks! Ok, most have to admit he has matured to be quite a hot young man! But that is obvious and he does not need me to defend his hotness! He has shed the boyish cuteness he had when performing with his brothers and starts his solo career with a new more mature and frankly manly look.
Other than his looks, why do I like him? His new song See No More. With lyrics like:
I connect with the lyrics of the song. I looked a pictures of an unrequited love too long and now I don’t want to see no more! Just like my love affair with Maroon 5 (link below), even what may be considered by some to be cheesy pop, if I relate – I am a fan! So, since I relate to his first solo effort, it could be the beginning of a great decade for Jo and I! I do mean relationship as in I relate to his music… not let’s get married…. although!! lol
Another common factor that will be found in “My Celebrity of the Week” is humor! Someone that appears to be the type person one would would enjoy having at their hypothetical dream dinner party. Someone that does not take themselves too seriously and can laugh – even at themselves. Joe Jonas had me in tears laughing at his take on Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” ! (link below) He has to be good-natured or he would have deleted the video after seeing some very mean and hurtful comments that were made about him.
As a part of the world-famous Jonas Brothers, each brother had their character to play. Older Brother Kevin, boy-next-door; younger brother Nick, heart-throb; kind of left Joe to be the sexy one. Well once again his good nature shined as he has endured being also called the gay one. Being gay myself, I know how I hated being called gay, I have empathy for a straight guy having to endure the name calling. Even if he were to be gay, who cares… he still pulls off being the sexy one!
Considering the fame he has experienced a large part of his life, he seems rather grounded when I have seen him being interviewed. I remember Britney Spears performing at little league ball games (she grew up close to me) and I think fame “got to her”, so I think he has handled fame with class. Based on what I do know of him I respect him as a young man. I do not profess to have any depth, culture, class or musical talent, but I do know what I like and I am wishing Mr. Joe Jonas great success in his solo music and acting career.
