Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas appeared on the Restore the Shore special on MTV Thursday night, November 15th.
As part of the effort to help rebuild and restore the Jersey Shore — which was devastated, along with many other coastal areas, by Hurricane Sandy last week – MTV (a division of Viacom Inc., NASDAQ: VIAB) has produced a one hour fundraising special called “Restore the Shore.” The special encouraged people nationwide to contribute to the rebuilding of Seaside Heights, the heart of the Jersey Shore and home to one of MTV’s most popular shows, “Jersey Shore.”
The special was LIVE from MTV’s Times Square Studio on Thursday, November 15th at 11pm ET, tape delayed PT on air, online and on mobile and featured the cast of the “Jersey Shore” along with other special guest appearances.
For this fundraising effort, MTV is partnering with Architecture for Humanity, an internationally recognized non-profit organization that provides design and construction services to communities in need. The organization will create a “Restore the Shore” fund to collect donations that will be principally directed toward the rebuilding of the famed Seaside Heights boardwalk, as well as supporting the re-building efforts of businesses and residents in the community that were so tragically affected by this historic storm. Architecture for Humanity has been helping communities rebuild after natural disasters for more than a decade, including major efforts in Biloxi and New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010

Joe Jonas recently sat down with MTV News, and in the middle of the conversation, he recalled what had to be one of his worst days ever. It was a day that included a stolen bike, a ruined ice cream cone and a loss for his favorite baseball team, the Yankees.
Here’s the tale of woe, straight from the source. He said, “All the time [I go biking]. Actually, my bike was stolen – it really was. I had a bike; literally it was my best friend. I rode it everywhere and in the middle of the day, it was sunny out me and Nick were shopping in SoHo. I locked it up on Prince and Mercer, so it’s a pretty busy street.
“Locked it up, a good lock, I mean it wasn’t a heavy duty lock,” he continued. “And I came back ten minutes later and it was gone … it’s really tough. I’m OK now, but at the time I was pretty depressed.”
Nick, being the good baby bro he is, tried to cheer him up. “Then Nick was like, ‘Let me buy you ice cream. It’ll make you feel better,’ cause ice cream makes anyone feel better for that five minutes and then you feel like crap afterwards. But then I dropped my ice cream cone on the ground and everybody around me was literally like, ‘Awww.’ It was so sad.”
But, it gets worse. “And then I went to a Yankees game and the Yankees lost horribly,” he added. “It was the worst day ever. I was [like], ‘Can I just go to bed now?’”

New ‘Live for Now’ campaign encourages fans to live in the moment, Jonas Brother tells MTV News.
What do Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Joe Jonas have in common? Well, aside from being internationally renowned pop stars, all three are involved in a new campaign Pepsi has just launched. “Live for Now” focuses on the motto “carpe diem” and celebrates spontaneity through events, digital marketing and, of course, musical partnerships.
For Jonas, the opportunity to spread that message fits with his own philosophy about living life to the fullest. “It’s, I think, a good match. A lot of stuff that I love to do is spontaneous, last minute and living in the moment,” he explained to MTV News. “And what better way to encourage people and my fans to be able to live in the moment? ‘Live for Now’ is tweeting about it and getting them involved.”
As for being the face of the campaign alongside Perry and Minaj (whose Pepsi ads already debuted), well, for Joe, that was icing on the cake. “I’m in great company: Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, more people to come, it’s an incredible little circle right now,” he explained.
“So, hopefully, we’ll all be able to do something together one day. But, as for now, just being able to do it individually and encourage their fans, my fans to get out there, or whomever, and be able to send in their little videos or pictures of them doing things that are in the moment.”
And, he added, those moments can be big or small. “I love being able to travel, take trips,” he said. “I called my buddies up. I literally called one of my best friends [brother-in-law Mikey Deleasa], he showed up to my house in New York, and I’m like, ‘Hey, what are you doing tomorrow? Let’s go to Vegas. Let’s do it!’ We had an incredible trip. We went to the Mayweather fight, and living in the moment and having a good time.
“But, if you can’t take Vegas trips on the weekend, there’s amazing things to do probably in your area,” he added. “Or, a road trip with your friends is always great.”
Earlier this month, Pepsi announced that Michael Jackson, who struck a deal with the brand in 1984, will be featured on Pepsi cans as a part of the campaign. The cans arrive Stateside later this month.

It was a major brawl until the very last vote. But in the end, Westlife beat the Jonas Brothers in MTV’s Battle of the Boy Bands.
Each boy band put up a good fight, but the fans spoke and the Irish quartet took home the metaphorical gold.
If you think the Jonas Brothers are holding any grudges, well … they are!
“You know what’s so funny, I didn’t know about it until we were down to the last two,” Jonas told MTV News on Wednesday (May 9), two days after the polls closed. “Nick and I were sitting together, and he was like, ‘Dude, you know we’re up for this MTV thing?’ He showed me — and Westlife won.”
Jonas had this strongly worded message for the victors: “I’ll get you one day, Westlife.”
All empty threats aside, Joe noted that the JoBros went as far as they did during the battle, which saw heavyweights like ‘NSYNC, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys voted out early on. “It’s awesome,” he said. “There’s a lot of incredible artists on there, so we fell very honored. Thank you, MTV. Is there, like, a runner-up award? Or is it kind of like Ricky Bobby [in 'Talladega Nights']: If you’re not first, you’re last?”
During the competition, little brother Nick told us what he thought would be the JoBros’ secret weapon during the heated competition. “I think that we are a good one to vote for because we play our own instruments,” Nick said. “It’s a rare thing for a boy band. … I don’t know of a whole lot of boy bands that do that.”
Final round of The Battle of the Boybands! It’s come down to the Jonas Brothers and Westlife! Make sure to vote for the Jonas Brothers. Voting ends Monday, 12pm EST! The winner will be announced shortly after voting is closed. To vote, click the picture, or here!
