Jonas Brothers are not the worst band!

There has been some bad press lately about one of my favourite bands the Jonas Brothers. The boys picked up Worst Album and Worst Band at the NME Awards in London on Wednesday, February 25th. The article (which can be found here) claims that “The band are officially worse than Scouting For Girls and Fall Out Boy”. I’m not a big fan of  Scouting For Girls or Fall Out Boy but there is nothing wrong with their music. I absolutely hate it when people think they are music aficinado’s and that anything that is too mainstream is not to be considered decent music. They are not music experts but closed minded, arrogant twats. Anything that does not fall under punk rock or indie rock is to be shunned? That is total bullshit. I feel I have more of a stand in judging music, my musical tastes range from pop to rock to R&B to soul, I even have a few oldies put in for good measure.  By looking at my Last FM page you’ll be able to see my top 8 most played artists: The Cure, George Michael, Jimmy Eat World, Take That, Jonas Brothers, The Script, Ne-Yo and Robert Pattinson. No one can tell me I have no idea about music. And that’s just my top 8! When it comes to music, no one can deny me of being open minded. It is just about the only thing I am open minded about! So, after clarifying my right to talk about what music is good music, I will now begin to defend my love of the Jonas Brothers.

  • They are heartthrobs. It isn’t just teens who like the band. Joe Jonas has been rumoured to be dating Camilla Belle. She is 22 and he is 19. I am not too old to like them. The oldest, Kevin, is 21. He is six months older than me. I don’t think that’s paedophilia!?
  • Think about boybands of the 90’s, they were way cheesier than these guys! JB’s songs are catchy, very catchy in my case. So why all the hatred?
  • You cannot deny their business skills. They have released album after album after album for the past three years, have performed at countless of shows, have had two movies released… these boys aren’t so stupid! I don’t think they’d care about haters. Would you care if you had millions of dollars rolling in? I think not.
  • They are great role models for kids. They are all round nice guys. Whether or not you believe in their virginity pact, they are setting a good example.  Their songs are not about sex, something which is unusual for music of today.
  • They are amazing performers. They know how to get a crowd going with singing, instrument playing and acrobatics. I have seen them perform twice and am going to see them again June 15th. I can’t get enough.

Whatever anyone says to me, these guys rock my socks! And people can call me sad or say that I have bad music taste, but I know that I do have good music taste. I am open minded too. It’s just a shame that haters aren’t that way too.  I believe people to be jealous, JB have the money, the success, the fame, the girls. It seems like these factors cloud haters’ judgement and instead of viewing their music for music, all they see are reasons to dislike them. Reasons that have nothing to do with their talent.

Miley Cyrus a virgin?

I found an article on Digital Spy about Miley Cyrus. She was told of by her pastor for texting her boyfriend in church. Allegedly, he lectured her for giggling during his service in Montrose, California. She was giggling  because of a text from her underwear model boyfriend, 20 year old Justin Gaston.  A source claimed, “They thought they could fool people, but Miley couldn’t stop giggling.” Miley has claimed that her relationship with Justin has been approved by her parents and has described him as “a good Christian guy” in a Ryan Seacrest interview. On her relationship with Justin she has said, “Our families are like, ‘Whatever happens, happens’. If he’s nothing but a really good friend, that’s awesome. More than anything, he has really helped me move on from a lot of things. He’s a really great Christian guy. He’s gone through stuff, and I’ve gone through stuff, and everyone goes through that.”

It certainly looks like Miley has moved on from Nick Jonas, the youngest of the Jonas Brothers despite her dedication to the Jonas Brother in her song 7 Things. I am a massive fan of the Jonas Brothers, I’m not knocking Nick. But I am not a cradle snatcher, Nick is too young for me. I don’t want to be accused of being a paedophile!  What can be questioned though, is Miley’s abstinence. I really do not think that being in a relationship with a hot model, four years her senior, bodes well for her virginity. Even when she was with Nick Jonas I thought she was the non-Virginity ring type. If she hasn’t slept with Justin already, then she is certainly thinking about it and her parents are fighting with all their might to reign her in. I predict that Miley will follow the footsteps of Britney Spears. And we all know how that panned out. Miley Cyrus fans, I am not jealous. I do actually like her music. I have other reasons for why I dislike her and maybe this will be a lengthy post for me to blog in the future.
