Joe Jonas went on a plane with his friends Kyle, Tony, and Brandon heading to Vegas. Joe tweeted about going to the UFC Lesnar vs Overeem fight tonight at MGM Grand. Wilmer Valderrama was also on the plane with Joe.
Joe Jonas says that his New Years resolution is, “I hope to continue what I’ve been doing, making great music that I’m proud of and being able to make more music with my brothers… Try to go somewhere in the world that I’ve yet to be on vacation, somewhere I can experience different cultures and enjoy.”

Meeting with Joe Jonas
While his solo album “FastLife” a hit around the world, Joe Jonas was kind enough to grant us an interview about the solo experience. Here are his impressions and future challenges, just for you. Interview with a young man who can still surprise us.
Trinity: Hi Joe. What is your favorite track on your album and can you tell us why?
Joe Jonas: It’s hard for me to pick one. But to answer your question, my choice would be “I’m Sorry.” I wrote this song to talk about a relationship ending. And probably too soon. I wanted to express the fact that I wanted to apologize. It is part of a song for which I had to really push me to express my feelings about this and the most honest possible. I think many people will end up in the words of “I’m Sorry.”
Can you tell us about your collaboration with Britney Spears concerts? What was it like working with her?
I am very pleased with the idea of being on tour with Britney. I think it’s crazy to have been huge fan and end up opening the concert. The first time was in the United States, our first date together, and the fans were fantastic. In October, the tour was to Europe, and for me it was a great experience.
When you choose your songs for your concert, how do you know where you’re going to sing on stage?
I sing all the singles. But also a medley of songs from Jonas, that the fans love, some titles of my favorite artists and of course my favorite songs in my album. I always make this choice without losing sight of the desire of my fans. I want to be able to offer the best concert possible.
Hopefully see you in concert in France soon?
Have stayed at home on October 21 opening for Britney in Montpellier. I hope to return next year for my solo concerts. Paris is a city I love most, so I do not miss an opportunity to come back here.
The fans are very concerned about the fact that you start a solo career. For them, it could mean the end of the Jonas Brothers. Will you work together again soon?
The Jonas Brothers are still a group. We just took our time, each in our own way to work on our individual projects. In subsequent years, this will not prevent us from making a new album together.
Haveyou sought the advice of your brothers to design Fastlife?
When I told my brothers that I thought to do a solo album, they were immediately very enthusiastic and supportive. Their main advice was to really take my time with regard to music. So that I can find a sound that really belongs to me. That’s what I did, I listened. They are very happy for me and each one has his favorite songs on the album.
Would you say that your French fans are different from your American fans and why?
The fans are different in each country. That’s what’s great. My French fans are great and they always give me great gifts. They are truly amazing and I love them.
Which artist are you listening right now?
Right now, I am fully in Foster The People, I think they do a really cool music and I’m still a huge fan of Adele. Metronomy, I still love their music.
What is your favorite, acting or singing?
I love to do both. I love singing for people, on a screen or on stage. I am a passionate, so I like to do both.
If you had to choose between being a singer and an actor?
Neither! I would like to take cooking classes to good food.
What is the best memory of your career?
The memory that comes immediately to mind is the time I sang a song from the Beatles at the White House for President Obama to Paul McCartney. It was an honor for me.

Jonas Brothers singer could be set to collaborate with Girls Aloud star
We would probably give our left kneecaps for a personal call from one third of the Jonas Brothers – especially the fittest third.
But Cheryl Cole won’t even need to blink an eyelid to get a call from Joe Jonas.
Unfortunately for her, it won’t be too personal, as Joe only wants to get in touch about a possible collaboration.
We asked Joe if Cheryl’s on his ‘hot list’ for the future, and he told us working with the star is “absolutely” a possibility.
He added: “I’ve worked with a couple of UK artists already. Pixie Lott is a great friend and we’ve written a couple of songs together that you may here in the future.”
The 22-year-old released his first solo album this year and says life without his brothers, Nick and Kevin, has been nerve-wracking.
He told OK.co.uk: “On my flight to my first show without my brothers I was definitely nervous, but once I hit the stage and saw the fans reaction that all went away.
“Even now there are moments when I look to my left or right and wish they could be with me to experience events or places I’ve been without them, but it’s been an amazing ride.”
And while Joe found the experience “intimidating”, he does say he hasn’t been too worried about changing his squeaky-clean Disney image.
He added: “I didn’t feel any pressure to change my image, I just got older and my tastes have changed.
“It was a natural progression, nothing contrived, just me growing up along with the fans. I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to show them who I am as an individual.”
He even had some sound advice for X Factor winners Little Mix on how to stay level headed.
He told us: “Practice a lot and work hard. Never stop doing either. Even X Factor winners have to keep practicing to get better and work hard to make good music and to reach fans.
“Bono once gave me a great piece of advice; to always write completely honest lyrics, which I’ve always taken to heart.”
