Nick Jonas Reminds Kelly Clarkson That the Jonas Brothers Opened for Her in 2005: ‘I Had No Idea’

«But you helped us get a lot of gigs after that, so thank you. We owe you 20 percent,» Nick Jonas joked on The Kelly Clarkson Show

Kelly Clarkson wasn’t aware of her clout among Jonas Brothers fans for helping jump-start the band’s careers.

When Nick Jonas, one-third of the sibling boy band, visited the “Stronger” singer’s new talk show, she was reminded that the group opened for her more than a decade ago.

“I was reading the pre-interview for this — I had no idea that y’all opened for me in 2005,” Clarkson, 37, said, basking in her newfound association with the popular hit-makers. “I feel like I just got really cool.”

Jonas, 27, humbly downplayed their early career performances ahead of her concerts, while also acknowledging that Clarkson’s name carried weight on their résumés from then on.

“No one cared about us in 2005, we were just coming up and basically, to get other gigs, we listed the other acts that we’d opened up for,” he told Clarkson, who is his competitor on The Voice as he becomes a coach for season 18. “But that really just meant that we were on, like, the outside stage in the parking lot while you were playing for 40,000 people.”

He added: “But you helped us get a lot of gigs after that, so thank you. We owe you 20 percent.”

Fast forward to 2019 and the Jonas Brothers — Nick, along with his older brothers Kevin and Joe — are on their own major tour, called Happiness Begins, with openers Bebe Rexha and Dr. Phil‘s son, Jordan McGraw.

Looking back at the year, the Midway actor called it a “beautiful time” for his family, with marriages and new music after the band decided to reassemble, a decision they came to after filming a revealing documentary together.

“We had really no intention of getting the band back together,” he said, “but after filming for a little while and kind of healing some of those family wounds that were there from our years of working together in the past, we were able to look at this with a fresh view and really kind of, all in different ways, find our happiness, so we went for it.”

The documentary, Chasing Happiness on Amazon Prime Video, allowed the brothers to address their “pretty crazy journey” growing up in the church and the music industry.

“When we actually just sat down and did the hard work that, you know, most families have to do — we all go through things with the people we love, whether it’s the family you choose or it’s your blood — you gotta go through it,” Jonas said. “And we did.”

He continued: “… To have been able to go through that with your family is, I think we’re all really grateful and aware of how unique it is, and so it’s just been special.”

Prior to the PDA-filled photos, Wilson posted a shot of himself cuddling with Lovato’s dog, Batman, to his Instagram Story on Tuesday.

It’s unclear how the two met, but Wilson was also friends with model Thomas Trussell III, a close friend of Lovato’s who passed away last month after a battle with addiction.

This marks the pop star’s first Instagram-official romance since she started working on her sobriety following an overdose in July 2018. This has included taking frequent breaks from social media.

Lovato has also been busy recording new music and will be guest starring on Will & Grace this season. On Tuesday, she shared some behind-the-scenes footage from the show’s set in celebration of Will & Grace star Megan Mullally’s birthday.

The other leading lady of the NBC sitcom, Debra Messing, even commented on Lovato’s romantic photo with Wilson, writing: «Gorgeous.»

Prior to dating Wilson, Lovato went on several dates with former Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson, but it seemed he had moved on last month when he asked actress Keke Palmer out on TV.

Though Johnson insisted he doesn’t kiss and tell, he did open up about his brief romance with the singer, saying, «I like her tattoos. We both have a lot of tattoos and she kisses really well…»

Taylor Swift Drops Swooning ‘Lover’ Remix Featuring Shawn Mendes: Listen

0

It’s the 13th of the month, and Taylor Swift’s homage to her lucky number came in the form of a «Lover» remix, featuring her old pal Shawn Mendes. «Hey guys, I wanted to tell you about something that I’m really excited about,» Swift said in a video teasing the song on Wednesday morning (Nov. 13). «There is a new version of ‘Lover’ coming, a remix featuring someone who I’m such a huge fan of and I’ve known for a really long time. And someone I have always really been dying to collaborate with.»

The spin on her album’s title track, which dropped just after midnight, keeps some of the same romantic lyrics but with a new twist provided by Mendes. «We could light a bunch of candles and dance around the kitchen baby,» Mendes sings in a breathy voice over acoustic guitars. «Pictures of when we were young they hang on the wall/ And we would sit on the stoop and I’ll sing love songs to you when we’re 80/ See I finally got you now, honey I won’t let you fall.»

«He has taken ‘Lover’ and he has re-written parts of it, which I think is so important because I love him as a writer,» Swift said of the personal touch Mendes added to the title track of her latest album. «And I also think that everybody would write a different love letter to their lover and I think his take on it is so beautiful.»

Mendes also joins Swift on the song’s reworked chorus, their voices intertwining as he later adds another layer to the mid-song breakdown, bringing the ultimate love story into the mix. «The girl in my story has always been you/ I’d go down with the Titanic, it’s true for you… Lover,» he sings before adding some falsetto ad libs as the song rushes to its conclusion.

Swift recently told Zane Lowe in an interview that her seventh album, released back in August, was “the first time I’ve written about love that was very real rather than a song like Love Story that I wrote when I was 17.”

«I feel like my priorities are in order, done some growing up, feeling good about it. And I was like, you know, what’s that going to be like to write from that place? But I didn’t even have long enough to think about that before I was writing this record.“

«There’s pink and purple in the sky-y-y» for Katy Perry’s new vertical video for «Harleys in Hawaii,» which she released Friday (Nov. 8).
