Jonas, Demi, & More Help Kick Off The Us Open

Yesterday was a day filled of tennis and great music over at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, David Archuleta, Bryan Brothers, Shontelle and Allstar Weekend all performed at the 2010 Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day festivities. The event, hosted by Quddus and Adrienne Bailon, also featured some of the biggest names in tennis like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters competed in skills challenges and more.
Be sure to check out Cambio Connect on Tuesday for our coverage of the event and interviews with the stars. Check out a few pics below.
As an added bonus, check out the Jonas Brothers’ old song medley from their concert in Atlantic City last night. Brings back great memories!

Run with (not after) Joe Jonas and raise money for Special Olympics Florida

I’m always inspired when celebrities compete in events to challenge themselves and to raise money for charity. Usually photos are released after the fact — some that come to mind are Oprah (1994, Marine Corps Marathon [4:29:15]), P. Diddy (2003,New York City Marathon [4:14:54]), Katie Holmes (2007, New York City Marathon [5:29:58]), Valerie Bertinelli (2010, Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half-Marathon [2:12:19].
I’m always drawn to the images at the finish line. I’m impressed and a little awed by their achievement. But mostly, I just like to see the rich and famous sweat a little.
And what’s better than seeing images after the event? How about seeing the celebrity as you pass them a mile into the run? OK, that may be wishful thinking. I imagine the Jonas Brothers stay pretty fit staying one step ahead of their adoring fans.

When I think about celebrities I’d like to run with while raising money for an important cause, several come to mind.  However the teenage girl buried deep inside me screams: Joe Jonas. Yes, Joe, the hottest Jonas Brother (in my humble opinion).
Joe will be running in the iWin 5k Fun Run Monday, Sept. 6 benefitting Special Olympics Florida. The fun run, at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, includes a 1k and 5k course, so everyone is welcome at this family-friendly event.
This run is one of several family events that Joe and his Change for the Children Foundation is hosting across the country to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics.
Registration fees are $30 per person if you register by Sept. 5. If you register the day of the event it’s $45 per person.
For those really motivated, top fundraisers will get to attend a meet and greet with Joe before the race and attend the Jonas Brothers concert Sept. 7 in West Palm Beach.

Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato’s ‘Camp Rock 2′ Style

Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers are getting ready to go back to camp–in style, of course! In preparation for Disney’s upcoming original movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam–premiering September 3–the film’s costume designer, Mona May, gave PEOPLE the inside scoop on Demi and the boys’ onscreen looks. “The Jonas Brothers have a certain look and they like to keep that look while blending it with the character and more casual outdoorsy feel for the setting of Camp Rock,” said Mona, who found fashion inspiration in iconic bands like the Rolling Stones and The Mamas & The Papas, to create the stars’ cool artsy look. And for the leading lady? “Demi Lovato wanted to use a lot of vintage and have a feel of very funky and classic 1960s rock influence,” revealed Mona. “She loves wearing dresses so we did that making sure that she can perform all the dance numbers.” We can’t wait to see Demi and the Jonas Brothers moving and shaking through Camp Rock 2 in their cool clothes! –Jessie Goldberg

Now pitching, the Jonas Brothers

Oh, the screaming!
Nothing can prepare you for the screaming: Nearly 5,000 teenage girls shrieking, screeching, squealing, and squeaking in unison.
No, we're not in a war zone. This is a Jonas Brothers zone.
The boy-band trio - Nick, 17, Joe, 21, and Kevin, 22 - took over Campbell's Field in Camden on Friday afternoon to play a free softball game with the Road Dogs, their home-brewed team of roadies and pals, in support of Allstate's "X the TXT" campaign, a national effort encouraging kids not to text while driving.
(The boys performed Friday evening at Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center.)
The Allstate gig is one of the many causes the nice-guy brothers have supported over the course of their TV and music careers.
Fans - overwhelmingly teen girls - say they dig the message. But they had more important things on their minds: To see the boys, maybe say hi to the boys, maybe even touch the boys.
Their jones for the Jonases seems to reach absurd levels.
South Philly pals Nicolette Gleason, 13, and Samantha Landi, 14, waited for hours to get seats along the third-base line. "We've seen them four times each," said Landi, who cited "Fly With Me" as her favorite song and Nick as her favorite Jonas.
Each girl carried a two-foot-high cardboard heart decorated with Jonas Brothers-related photos, postcards, concert tickets, and song lyrics.
Gleason turned serious when asked if she's met the boys. "We have," she said, blushing, "well, to say hi and shake hands."
Mary Jo Yorks, 52, drove her daughter Jaycee, 14, and Jaycee's pal, Makayla, 15, from their home in Nescopeck Township, Luzerne County, a 21/2-hour trip.
Luzerne? Pshaw! Try Venezuela. Daniela Cossio, 16, and her sister, Alejandra, 18, had their mom bring them from Caracas.
Asked why they are so devoted to the Jonas Brothers, fans and moms alike kept using one word - well, aside from cute - to describe the singers: wholesome.
"It's clear they've been well-raised," said Woodbury's Amy Swanson, 35, who was at the game with a gaggle of super-young fans ranging in age from 5 to 9.
"They're really good boys from a good family," Yorks said.
Audubon Park's Anne Marie Levin, 47, said she is impressed by Nick's openness about his diabetes.
"It's inspired my daughter [Michayla, 12,] who has Type 1 diabetes. . . . It's a great message, to say you can handle the illness and have a lifestyle, too."
It's very hard not to like the boys. Even if you try hard. (Some of us have tried.)
They were respectful, polite, and sweet during a brief pregame chat.
"It's for a great cause," said Kevin, who pitches for the Dogs, about the "X the TXT" softball games the band has been playing during their tour.
Joe assured fans the game wouldn't deplete the band's mojo. (The fans' screampower, and the sheer force of their countless Oh my God!s, we're sure, will help pump 'em up.)
The Jonas Brothers love-in had no end. Even Sewell resident and home plate umpire Joe Marshall, who presided over a Dogs game last year, is impressed by the boys.
Asked - repeatedly and vehemently - if we should expect roughhousing, trash-talking, or fighting from the pop stars, he insisted, "Oh no, they're good boys."

Jonas Brothers rock out one last time in 'Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam'

If you liked "Camp Rock," you're going to love "Camp Rock 2," says star and teen pop sensation Demi Lovato.
"And if you didn't like 'Camp Rock'?'" Lovato adds. "You're still going to love 'Camp Rock 2.' "
"Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam," premiering Friday at 8 on Disney, is the sequel to 2008's No. 1 cable movie, featuring Lovato and Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas. In the new installment, the gang is back for another summer of fun, but when the flashier, state-of-the-art Camp Star sets up shop across the lake and starts luring away campers and instructors, the future of Camp Rock is put in jeopardy.
"There's an interesting ending, very unexpected, which I love," says Kevin Jonas. "It's not about winning or losing, it's about who you are on the journey. And it's not about one person trying to be great, it's about a group of people coming together, trying to make a difference."
As in the first movie, there is plenty of singing and dancing going down at Camp Rock. All the dance numbers were choreographed by Rosero McCoy, who has worked with Usher and 'N Sync. The songs were written by such talents as "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi.
There's one particular song, "Introducing Me," that Nick's character, Nate, sings to a new love interest to tell her about himself. The lyrics include, "I eat cheese, but only on pizza, please/ And sometimes on a homemade quesadilla/ Otherwise, it smells like feet to me."
Fans should take note, however, that the song is about Nick's character, not the JoBro himself.
"There's a line that says I like checks with lots of zeroes on them, and I'm not necessarily concerned with that," Nick says. "He also says he doesn't like cars, and I love cars. Those are the main differences. But other than that, I guess we're pretty similar."
Kevin and Nick figure more heavily in the action in "Camp Rock 2" than they did in the original. Each of the three brothers has his own story line: Shane (played by Joe) resumes his relationship with Mitchie (played by Lovato) after a year apart. Nick, as Nate, falls for a classical pianist at rival Camp Star, and Kevin, as Jason, tries to counsel Camp Rock's youngest talent.
"It's cool that each one of us has an individual journey we're going on, because that happens in our own personal lives as well," says Kevin. "But we always come back together as a band."
The biggest challenge of the shoot, according to pretty much everyone involved, was the fact that "Camp Rock 2" is a summertime movie, while the weather on-set was near freezing. At one point, as everyone ran around in shorts and T-shirts, it started to snow.

Meet Camp Rock 2's New Girl

Joining the cast of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, actress Chloe Bridges had no clue just how huge a project it was. "I had no idea what a phenomenon Camp Rock had become and it blew me away," she tells TVGuide.com. The 18-year-old plays Dana Turner, who arrives from Camp Rock's rival camp to have a star-crossed romance with Nate (Nick Jonas). Bridges talks about why her role is the "Switzerland" of all the characters and how she accidently pushed Jonas, 17, into freezing cold lake water.
TVGuide.com: Who do you play in Camp Rock 2?
Chloe Bridges:
I play Dana, the daughter of the owner of the rival camp [Camp Star]. The cool thing about Dana is she is just real and raw and honest and uninhibited — she is definitely an empowered female. She ends up liking Nate (Nick Jonas) and Nate likes her and they have a little romance. She actually approaches him, flirts with him first, which is I think is awesome.
5 reasons adults should watch Camp Rock 2
TVGuide.com: Tell me about his song to Dana, "Introducing Me."
That was so much fun to shoot. I was actually nervous going in because it was our very first day of work, my very first day on the set. It was a scene toward the end of the movie, so I didn't really know what to expect, but it was a lot of fun. I didn't really have to do much, just smile a lot. It's a really cute scene and a really cute song.
TVGuide.com: Does Dana butt heads with the other girls?
Actually, no, only because she doesn't really interact with any of the other girls in the movie. They would refer to Dana as Switzerland — she doesn't get involved in the Camp Rock/Camp Star battle thing.
TVGuide.com: Were you excited to be a part of something so popular?
I actually didn't quite know what I was getting myself into. I had no idea what a phenomenon Camp Rock had become and it blew me away how supportive and passionate the fans are. They would wait outside where we were shooting just to see us drive into work and that blew my mind. I've never worked on a movie that has so much hype around it.
See photos from the set of Camp Rock 2
TVGuide.com: What was the audition process like?
When I auditioned for the role, I went the whole shebang where I had to act, dance, sing and play an instrument. It was quite an audition process, so I assumed my character would be singing and dancing in the movie. However, because Dana doesn't get involved in the competition and drama between the two camps, she is not in any performance number. So I didn't get to utilize my singing and dancing, but I got to incorporate my piano.
TVGuide.com: Any funny moments from behind the scenes?
I kind of pushed Nick into a lake, not on purpose at all, and I felt really bad. At the end of this scene, I'm supposed to encourage him to go back into his canoe. We're filming by the lake and it's muddy. In one take, I got a little too into it and instead of putting my hand on his back and pretending to push him, I actually used force and pushed him into freezing cold water.
TVGuide.com: Did he take it well?
He did because he's Nick and he's the man and takes everything well, but I would've been mad.

'Camp Rock 2': Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato roll with the punches

Kids who go to sleep-away camp look forward all school year to friends they see only in summer, not showering all that often and freedom. Parents love camp, too, but for different reasons.

The camp themes of good versus evil and fake versus genuine play out in Disney Channel's "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" Friday, Sept. 3.

The sequel to "Camp Rock," a huge hit two years ago, reunites the Jonas Brothers as the band Connect 3, with Demi Lovato as Mitchie. There are fledgling, chaste romances and the lesson that leadership requires cooperation and hard work.

The plot pitches talented teens against other talented teens, culminating in a singing and dancing competition with high stakes. An interesting aside is that the audience watching the competition at the end of the movie is made up of real fans. They were found when the Jonas Brothers and Lovato Twittered the need for extras. Within three minutes, 60,000 people had applied for the 1,500 slots, says a Disney publicist, and by that night the traffic had reached 1 million, crashing the server.

Lovato ("Sonny With a Chance"), whom the channel has been grooming for stardom, is aggressively earnest as she sings and dances. Though there's plenty for JoBro fans to enjoy, this is Lovato's movie.

"This was the first film I was not totally overshadowed by them," Lovato says from a Manhattan hotel room. "Going into the film, I knew this time would be different. I couldn't get away with not doing my best performance."

The movie is better than it needs to be, considering it has a built-in audience. Lovato, who has been touring with the Jonas Brothers, was thrust into the frenzy swirling around the brothers.

"Their fans are supportive, and they are supportive of me," she says. "It's crazy to arrive at 4 in the morning and there are people inside the hotel."

On a rainy day in New York, the brothers are sequestered in a hotel. Gigantic bodyguards, placed every so many yards in the hotel hallways, keep watch for overzealous fans. The brothers, who get along easily with one another, laugh as they recall their camp days.

Camp, says Kevin Jonas, is "amazing. You never want to lose your love of camp." He attended camp for nine years, Joe for seven and Nick for four. They all say they love it, and Joe's favorite memory is "the last day of camp, there was a giant relay race."

Kevin recalls boys daring one another. "You'd eat an entire onion by yourself," he says. Joe adds, "Or you would eat a whole piece of Spam."

"Camp is so universal," Kevin says. "It buys that sense of togetherness. You have camp friends that you only see at camp and couldn't see an entire year."

Camp Rock is for kids who want to be rock stars. A rival rock-wannabe camp, Camp Star, sets up business across the lake and threatens Camp Rock's existence.

"At Camp Rock, everyone has grown up a little more," Kevin says. "Joe and Nick and I are in it more, and we take on a leadership role, the ownership of the camp -- we feel a responsibility. You feel part of the journey -- wanting the camp to survive."

The camp owner is on the brink of closing Camp Rock as counselors and kids defect to Camp Star, but Mitchie rallies the troops to save the sweet, no-frills camp they love.

"The fact that it's tons of different stories and has a moral to it," is her takeaway, Lovato says. "And being the right kind of leader. She becomes very bossy. I remember girls can be super bossy. Girls can learn from that."

Sure, the kids break into song and dance at any given moment. And it's about as realistic as these situations are in any musical. But remember, Disney ushered in the model for movie musicals for kids with "High School Musical." The choreography is devoid of sexuality, and to understand what an accomplishment that is, tune into most music videos and see how comfortable parents are allowing tweens to watch.

"Dancing is something I have always been passionate about," Lovato says. "I started with jazz, tap and ballet, and when I hit about 10, I started taking hip-hop."

She can also belt a number, evident as Mitchie leads everyone in "Brand New Day," a catchy tune co-written by Kara DioGuardi of "American Idol" fame.

There's something here for parents who know their album covers. The brothers pose briefly as musicians from iconic LPs. There are nods to such cover art as Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" and Crosby, Stills & Nash's first album.

One of the best songs is Nate (Nick Jonas) singing, "Introducing Me" with the lyrics of: "I eat cheese only on pizza, except in a homemade quesadilla, otherwise it smells like cheese … ."

Sure, the movie's title includes the word "final," but the ending, which will not be revealed here, leaves open the possibility of sequels.

VIP Access to Joe Jonas

Go behind-the-scenes of Joe Jonas' life on tour. See his pre-show rituals, baseball fun and more.

Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam

There's nothing so rousing as a show about putting on a show. A catchy song or a great dance sequence or a gut-wrenching key change can atone for many a plot hole (Glee), exhausted cliché (High School Musical), or absurd premise (Hannah Montana). Disney Channel's Camp Rock franchise proves no exception to this rule: While it adds nothing to the teen-musical genre, it'll certainly kick your mood up a few notches.
Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam reunites the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato from the original 2008 TV movie — a huge hit for the channel that capitalized on the Jonases' stardom just as they were crossing over into mainstream consciousness. Now old pros, the brothers return, assibling band Connect 3, to spend their summer at Camp Rock during a break from touring so lead singer Shane (Joe Jonas) can spend quality time with girlfriend Mitchie Torres (the dependably appealing Lovato). But a rivalry with the slick new Camp Star across the river cuts into their romantic plans as they attempt to save Camp Rock from financial ruin by winning — yes, please! — a televised performance showdown.
Nothing that ensues will surprise you in the least, of course. Like High School Musical, the entire production is vigorously scrubbed clean of grit and angst and irony. But the Jonas Brothers lend Camp Rock 2 an extra zing that HSMlacked. Drop-dead-dreamy Joe is endearingly self-aware as Shane, who says things like ''Everything's cool when I do it.'' Kevin gamely plays comic relief as the guy assigned to counsel the youngest campers, and the three brothers display a knack for timing in several cutely funny scenes. But it's Nick who really gets a chance to shine in his romantic plotline, which has him struggling to express his feelings for Camp Star camper Dana (Chloe Bridges, who could — and likely will — play Angelina Jolie's daughter).
Nick's adorable acoustic ditty in which he finally reveals himself to her, ''Introducing Me,'' will stick in your head far longer than the superproduced numbers. And in a soundtrack full of the Miley Cyrus brand of ''rock,'' the Huey Lewis-esque ''Heart and Soul'' serves as a refreshing opportunity for the boys to give a real performance, complete with guitar solos and lyrics that name-check Jagger, Springsteen, and Axl (not to mention former Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera). While Camp Rock 2might not have the cred of School of Rock or the subversive edge of Glee, it's a true pop song of a movie. B

Under theatric fuss, Jonases actually rock

MANSFIELD — A lot has happened in the year since the Jonas Brothers last played the Boston area. Nick started an anticlimactic adult-contemporary solo career, Joe began and ended a relationship with fellow Disney star Demi Lovato, and Kevin turned into a married man. But the biggest change evident last night at the Comcast Center (where they played the first of two nights) was in the show itself, scaled down from the arena-spanning multiple stages and full-throttle spectacle of the TD Garden to something more like a straightforward rock show.

The transformation wasn’t a complete one, given that the performance was half concert, half semitheatrical preview of “Camp Rock 2,’’ the Jonases’ upcoming Disney Channel movie. A sizable chunk of the songs came from the soundtrack. Nick sped through the antsy, Jason Mraz-like “Introducing Me’’ in an effort to cram the song into 2 minutes and 15 seconds. “Wouldn’t Change a Thing’’ was the type of duet (between Joe and Lovato) where the singers were more aware of the audience than each other.
While the non-“Camp Rock’’ material had plenty of stadium-size bombast, most of it seemed grounded in the actual music. Many of the songs, like the heavy glam-pop shuffle “L.A. Baby (Where Dreams are Made Of)’’ and the upbeat ’80s-prom-theme-styled “This is the Night,’’ seemed as though everything was cranked to full. Others had a jittery, overcaffeinated feel that made it so the audience’s only recourse was to start jumping.
But the Jonases came on strong with the sleek, effortless “Paranoid,’’ an unsubtle yet high-impact cover of the Beatles’ “Drive My Car,’’ and “Lovebug,’’ which transformed from a happy jaunt to almost Queen-like majesty. The movies might fuel the machine, but the Jonas Brothers aimed to make the ride a smooth one.
Lovato’s opening set was similarly split in two. The first half was given over to her strong solo material, and combining twin acoustic-to-electric songs “Falling Over Me’’ and “Don’t Forget’’ was a smart masterstroke. She became a lot less interesting once she shifted from the Lovato show to the “Camp Rock 2’’ live tour, complete with lakeshore backdrops, headset microphone, and full-cast choreography.

Jonas Brothers and Grandpa Take Stage Spills

Nick Jonas and his grandfather recently proved that superstardom won't protect against an embarrassing trip - or two, in this case.

During the Jonas Brothers show Saturday (Aug. 21) at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in New York, the boys presented a birthday cake, gift and song to their grandfather, who was turning 70. Soon after, Grandpa Jonas eradicated the sentimentality with a charming rendition of the chicken dance, which led to his backwards tumble.

And as if one toppling Jonas wasn't enough, youngest band member Nick later had a similar affair with the floor while prancing off the stage post-encore.

The Jonas boys are known for their smooth moves, but it seems that a little clumsiness may have found its way into the bloodlines of the teen heartthrob trio.

Cambio Goes home with JonasBrothers


NOTE: Frankmusik does not need an introduction, you should stop reading this blog if you don’t know who he is.
What do you do when you receive a Facebook message from Frankmusik implying he wants to do an interview?
You do it!  And as a pop music purveyor, you learn from it…
I met Vincent through Skype video chat to speak about his new album released off Cherry Tree Records, collaboration with many influential people in pop, and got a chance to listen to a few new tastemakers off his sophomore record.

Kazemi:  The American crossover should be great!  In outside work, who have you been working with lately? For your songwriting and producing?
Frankmusik: Well, the Sky Ferreira thing is finished; I don’t know when her albums coming out but I produced for her a while back, Joe Jonas… that’s been a lot of fun.  I just finished cutting some vocals with Colette Carr today!

Kazemi: Wait, Joe Jonas?
Frankmusik: It’s the most bizarre kinda gig, it’s been fun.. He’s doing his solo career now and his A & R has literally been like  “do whatever you want.”   All the stuff I’ve produced for him has been their favorite stuff which is unbelievable because I really thought they’d hate it.  I thought they’d actually hate everything I had to offer and you know what my music is like and you wouldn’t wanna really put me and Joe Jonas in the same room.  But he’s such a fucking cool dude, they all get such a bad rep and I don’t know how they stay so cool. I know some people who haven’t even got a fraction of their success and they’re the nicest people, I’ve hung out with like nobodies who are complete arseholes but those guys are so humble and don’t let any of the negativity get to them. It’s amazing; you can’t deny that that’s pretty awesome.

Kazemi:  That’s pretty sick.
Frankmusik: He’s fucking awesome.

Kazemi:  So how does inspiration differ when you’re writing for yourself and when you’re writing for someone else?
Frankmusik: Well, I mean, it was inspiring working with Joe because everyone else on the planet is just waiting for what he’s gonna do next. So I need to do something that’s just to fuck with people.  It’s not like I’m working with someone that’s known as an electronic artist or someone like that.  This guy is pop through and through, it was so great, and it would literally be like “hey, I’ve got a beat.”  “Oh I love it, I’ve already written something.” “Great that’s awesome, let’s just change this and then record it.” So that’s what it would be like with him because he’s a proper musician. He literally sings better then anyone I’ve had in my studio apart from Ellie Goulding, I mean she’s epic.

Kazemi:  You just changed my views on Joe Jonas…

Jonas Brothers Return Home for a Cause

Wyckoff natives stage exhibition softball game to discourage teens from texting while driving
Generally an early morning start at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium in downtown Newark means that there is Newark Bears baseball to be played. However, on Monday there was a much different game being played at the stadium.
Instead of former major leaguers Armando Benitez and Carl Everett taking the field with their Bears teammates, it was Wyckoff natives the Jonas Brothers who shined on the baseball diamond.
The group returned home for the Allstate Insurance Company's "X The TXT" campaign, which was started as an initiative to stop teenagers from using their cell phones to text message while operating a motor vehicle.
Statistics released by Allstate reveal that texting while driving produces the same effect on a driver as drinking four cans of beer. Also, drivers who text at the wheel are 23 times more likely to be involved in an automobile accident when compared to someone who does not text and drive.
To promote the campaign, the Jonas Brothers formed their own softball team called the Road Dogs, which is comprised of the singing group, friends and other members of their road crew. For the entire national exhibition tour, the Road Dogs squared off against the Marquis Jet Flyers with a limited number of free tickets being distributed to the public.
On Monday afternoon, it was very much up in the air if the Jonas Brothers were even going to take the field, as heavy rain had come over the area. Fortunately, the heaviest part of the storm slacked off just prior to batting practice, and the players were able to get in the entire game with on-and-off showers.
Despite the storms, fans both young and old packed into the stands to loudly cheer on both teams. In between innings, contests were held, and a few lucky fans came away with autographed T-shirts and baseball tickets.
To most fans, sharing an afternoon with their favorite stars was more than enough. Lyssa, a young fan from Essex County, relished the opportunity to see her favorite singing group play ball live. "Last year, I remember being very upset when I missed out on seeing the Jonas Brothers' softball game in Newark. "This year I told myself that there was no way I was going to miss out."
Lyssa's mom, Michelle, called into the Newark Bears ticket office last Monday at the very instant tickets became available. "When I called at first, the phone line was busy, and I thought to myself that we were out of luck. Much to my surprise though, I was able to get through a half-hour later and reserve our tickets."
The Road Dogs ended up dropping the game by the score of 19-10, but that didn't seem to have an effect on the crowd. Nothing could take away from the enthusiastic fans' excitement about seeing their favorite pop stars up close and in person.
Even after the final pitch was thrown, the group's day was by no means over. Following the game, all three brothers began their journey to Boston, Mass., where later this week they will play another softball game against the Jet Flyers and hold a concert.

EXCLUSIVE: "Camp Rock 2" with the Jo Bros and Demi Lovato!

he Jonas Brothers have known songstress/actress Demi Lovato since the first "Camp Rock" movie on the Disney Channel in 2008. As singers Mitchie and Shane, Demi and Joe Jonas forged a friendship that has lasted, in various forms, since then. Now the gang is back together in "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam", starting on the network Sept. 3rd and we sat down with all of them!


TeenHollywood: Are you guys still really "living the dream" or has it started to tarnish a little bit?

Kevin: The dream living us?

TeenHollywood: Yeah.

Joe: We are on Season 2 on the show but I know what you mean. But as we get older, it seems like we love it more and more. I think we learned that it's important to take time and rest and that means not doing anything. But, at the end of the day, we don't want to stop this ride. It's a great opportunity for us to live out our dreams so we're looking forward to, hopefully, the rest of our lives doing this.

TeenHollywood: Kevin you were on "Minute to Win It" in the Spring. What was that like?

Kevin: We work with Disney but we have an option to do almost anything so that was a huge opportunity but to do as well as I did was great. To win 350 thousand dollars for our charity was incredible as was having the support of my family and my wife. It was awesome. I didn't know which games they would play. There are like 50 of them. Luckily, I practiced some of them including that one called "Keep the Change" which people were amazed by.

TeenHollywood: Nick, you sing a really cute song called "Introducing Me" in "Camp Rock 2". Is anything you say to describe yourself in the song really you or just something you wrote for the character?

Nick: Some of it is me. But there's a line that says 'I'm not really into cars'...which isn't true [we laugh]. I love cars. I have a couple of cars. It's one of my biggest passions so singing that line was tough 'I can't do it'

TeenHollywood: That is a really fast-moving song. Did you have to record it a lot because you messed up the lyrics?

Nick: It was hard but the amazing part about it is it was a lot easier to sing when it was fast. I guess the rhythm and where you take the rests was easier than when it was at a slower point. It's like running a marathon.

Kevin: I think the fans will understand if you do it on tour and don't get it right every night. I think it's pretty funny though if he can't get through it and he just falls apart.

Nick: Like tripping in a race.

TeenHollywood: Nick is portrayed as something of a klutz in the TV movie. Is that true?

Kevin: That would be me or Joe.

Joe: It's definitely happened on stage where.. well, I'm good at falling. It's been on YouTube many times.

TeenHollywood: How embarrassing is that?

Joe: Sometimes it's funny. I laugh at it. It's important to laugh at yourself and that shows I'm not trying to hide who I am; sometimes klutzy on stage.

TeenHollywood: Joe, Demi has answered my question about the awesome, powerful song you both sing in 'Camp Rock 2' "I Wouldn't Change a Thing"

Joe: Thanks for saying "awesome and powerful".

TeenHollywood: Well I think it is. She was saying that some of the power from that comes from the long relationship you two have had; the ups and downs.

Joe: Yeah, I'd say, going on what she said, to have a really good relationship with anybody, you have to have some ups and downs to appreciate what it is. For me and Demi, I think we both realize nobody is perfect and we do care for each other's imperfections.

TeenHollywood: How much of a game plan do you guys have for your future music? Are you going to change it as you get older?

Nick: I think we take it one step at a time. We have a master plan. Do this for a long time.

Joe: [sinister voice] Take over the world!

Nick: And enjoy each step of the way. We're in no rush to age ourselves up. We're growing in our own time. Our music is growing and we're learning more and more each day with each show we play. We feel like we're trying to master our craft and with the acting as well, we're just getting started and have a long way to go but we enjoy it and we're blessed to have people believe in us.

Kevin: Completely.

TeenHollywood: What actor or musical star would you like to be like?

Joe: As an actor we look up to Daniel Craig [the latest James Bond]. I think he's really a fantastic actor in our own time.

Kevin: Dean Martin. Dean Martin [vintage singer] is awesome. Guys like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

Nick: And when you look back at Elvis Presley. He did movies as well as music

Kevin: The triple threat is coming back. You couldn't do a movie if you weren't a triple threat way back then. You had to sing, dance and be an incredible actor. You look at musical movies like Singing in the Rain and now look at shows like "Glee". It's the triple threat thing.

Joe: Well, we could be a triple threat but we don't dance.

Kevin: I know so we're lacking in that area.

Nick: Okay, we're a double threat.

Joe: But we can try.

The Jonas Brothers Take The Field!

Screaming fans watched as The Jonas Brothers’ softball team, The Road Dogs, made up of the Jonas road crew, played ball and Nick proved that he’s got game! Plus, how did 9-year-old brother Frankie get in on the action?

5 Reasons Adults Should Watch Camp Rock 2

Who says the Disney Channel is just for kids? When its latest original movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premieres, there will be plenty of reasons for adults to tune in. The sequel stars Demi Lovato as Mitchie Torres, who returns to Camp Rock only to learn that a new rival camp, Camp Star, has recruited some of Rock's campers and instructors. It's up to her and rock stars Connect 3, played by the Jonas Brothers, to save their turf. From the music and choreography to first loves, find out why people of all ages should Rock out from the stars themselves.

No. 1: A nod to Classic Rock
Kevin Jonas
(Jason) tells TVGuide.com about the pop-culture references in the film that an older generation will appreciate. "We have images from records, like a couple [of] Bruce Springsteen, Band on the Run ... They're in the middle of the scene and all of a sudden it'll happen, and you either catch it for a second, or it'll go away."

No. 2: Dancing, dancing and more dancing
"Everyone loves dancing, no matter what age you are," Roshon Fegan (Sander) says. Demi Lovato adds that the dance sequences are bigger and better — and they feature people doing gymnastics tricks and stepping on tables.

No. 3: Nostalgia for summer camp
We all wish were kids again. Who doesn't want the summers off and no work to worry about? "We all were teens," Camp Rock 2 writer Dan Berendsen says. "You either went to camp or wanted to go. It's a great carefree experience and we all get to relive that — first love, standing up for what you believe in."
Check out clips of Camp Rock 2

No. 4: The music will leave you humming for days
And it's not just pop and rock music this time around. Camp Rock newcomer Chloe Bridges says that "the music is more appealing in this one because ... they [also] have hip-hop, and I even bring a little bit of classical music to it."

No. 5: The Jonas Brothers
OK, so they may be 22 (Kevin), 21 (Joe), and 17 (Nick), but their adorable looks, combined with their rock-star status, are enough to make any woman swoon. Star Jasmine Richards (Peggy) certainly agrees. "Any adult, I think, would think that they're still cute, even if they are a little bit younger," she says.
Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premieres Sept. 3 at 8/7c on the Disney Channel.

Kevin Jonas - Same Old Kevin Jonas

Kevin Jonas' brothers insist he hasn't changed since getting married to long-term love Danielle Deleasa last December.
Kevin Jonas hasn't changed since getting married.
The Jonas Brothers star tied the knot with long-term love Danielle Deleasa last December but his siblings insist he is still the same despite his newly married status.
Nick Jonas said: "He's still the same old guy. He just has a wife now, which is great! We like having her around."
Kevin's 'Camp Rock 2' co-star Jasmine Richards also approves of Danielle, saying: "Danielle often visits us, and she's such a sweetheart. They're always holding hands, and they're truly in love."
Kevin recently said he isn't worried his marriage will split the Jonas Brothers apart.
The 22-year-old star has been joined on the trio's current US tour by his spouse and even though they travel on a separate bus to his brothers Joe, 21, and 17-year-old Nick, he insisted the new addition to their entourage doesn't cause any problems.
Kevin said: "Adding a new element to a rock band is always risky.
"But with Danielle, it's been all good. And the brothers still find time to hang out, just the three of us, too.
"We spent the first two nights of the tour on Joe and Nick's bus, and that was fun. They joke around with her all the time, just like she's their sister."

Jo Bros, Demi Lovato Surprise Fans At 'Camp Rock'

Disney darlings Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers treated fans to a special surprise concert after the premiere of "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" in New York City yesterday (Aug. 18)

Lovato, topped out in a pink summer dress and denim jacket, went on first with fellow Camp Rock castmates. The group performed "It's On," along with bouncy, hair-flipping, choreography. Anna Maria Perez de Tagle and Jordan Francis who play the characters Ella and Barron, respectively, in the "Camp Rock" series, also strutted their stuff on stage.

"Stand up! This isn't a 3D movie!" Joe Jonas declared to the crowd before he and his brothers began the country-rock and soul song, "Heart and Song," shortly after Lovato's performance. Cast members also joined the trio on stage, as girls wiggled their hips while boys danced with unplugged guitars as props to shake things up.

The Jonas Brothers and Lovato are both on the road right now supporting the "Camp Rock 2" soundtrack. The Disney Channel original movie is scheduled to air on Sep. 3.

Joe Jonas Wears Dior to Camp Rock 2 Premiere

Joe Jonas turned up on the red carpet at the "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" movie premiere in New York City last night wearing a fashionable Dior Homme suit. The Dior Homme black wool suit is unusual, in that it has a slashed lapel blazer (as seen on Joe Jonas on the far right). The premiere was held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center; "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam", which features all three of the Jonas Brothers, will air on September 3 on the Disney Channel.

Jonas isn't the only celebrity donning Dior duds of late. Kanye West and his Rosewood Movement are big fans of Dior Homme, too. West and his Rosewood pals have been seen wearing a Dior Homme Black Classic Skinny Suit (as reported by Luxist yesterday). West's suit is sold in Beverly Hills and New York City boutiques and retails for $2,200. It is available during every season, unlike the one worn by Jonas, which is Spring 2009 Runway and not available anymore (Dior isn't doing slashed lapels this season).

The Rosewood Movement is a fashion initiative in which its followers wear the same sharply tailored suits. It stems from the Rosewood Civil Rights Movement, but in this case is meant to raise the level of sophistication within the rap and hip hop worlds.

Joe Jonas Ashley Greene Romance Rumor

Joe Jonas got nervous when asked if he and Ashely Greene are an item

Demi Lovato Wishes She'd Kept Relationship with Joe Jonas a Secret

Silence is golden: That's one lesson Demi Lovato has taken away from her brief high-profile romance with Joe Jonas.

After going through a very public breakup last spring, Lovato now says she wishes she'd kept her relationship with her Camp Rock 2 costar quiet.

"I learned my lesson," Lovato, 17, tells PEOPLE. "It's not very much fun when you break up in a public relationship. So, maybe next time keep a secret."

Though the Jonas Brothers member has been portrayed as a heartbreaker, following his split from other young stars like Taylor Swift, Lovato defends him.

"I know that he has the best intentions," she says. "Definitely most guys don't have the same intentions that he does."

'Want to Shout from Rooftops'

Still, Lovato admits it was tough to keep her feelings to herself once she started dating Jonas, 21, after they finished filming Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. (It premieres on the Disney Channel Sept. 3 and airs through the Labor Day weekend.)

"You want to say to your fans, 'Guess what, I'm so in love with somebody.' You want to shout it from the rooftops. That's what you do when you fall in love," she says. "At the same time, I learned my lesson. You know, I'll go public when I marry someone one day."

While Jonas has been spotted out with Twilight star Ashley Greene – he declined to comment on whether or not they're dating – Lovato says she isn't in a rush to start a new love connection. "No new romances. I'm perfectly happy with being single. I feel like also if I was going to have a new romance, I'd keep it private," she says.

In the meantime, Lovato is touring with the Jonas Brothers and members of the Camp Rock 2 cast – and she and Jonas are back to being friends. "Working with [Joe] has been fine," she adds. "It's been really great."

Jonas Brothers want London show

The Jonas Brothers have said they'd be up for making a "Jonas London".
With the siblings relocating to Los Angeles in their Disney sitcom Jonas LA, the brothers said coming to the UK next wasn't out of the question.
"We'd like that - I think we'd like that a lot," Kevin said at the New York premiere of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.
"I'm down," laughed Joe before Nick added: "I'm in!"
The trio also claimed they hadn't got sick of working together.
"We have a good time working together," Nick told reporters. "If we didn't we probably wouldn't still be doing this. The key is just having a good time, enjoying our time together and really trying to do what we love."
Joe insisted fans of the first Camp Rock film won't be disappointed by the follow-up.
"You can expect a lot of fun, dancing and singing. Key moments, there's a good water balloon fight, there's a couple of good ballads. I think people will be impressed," he said.

Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato Go to Band 'Camp'

The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato packed their trunks, drumsticks, guitars, and singing voices for a summer of music and romance in "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam." The tween sensations marched down the red carpet in New York on Wednesday alongside Mickey and Minnie Mouse for a magical Disney premiere.
Joe Jonas credited his "supportive family" for the trio's success. "We all have individual dreams, but I think that we have each other to lean back on, come together, play music together, and have a good time."
Demi appraised the sequel as "bigger and better. It's crazy. There's going to be so much more drama, romance, music. It's more of a musical this time around."
"Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" brings the battle of the bands to the Disney Channel on September 3.

Joe Jonas Receives A Timely Present For His 21st Birthday

Pop star receives James Bond-inspired watch instead of a dog.

Joe Jonas may have wanted a dog for his 21st birthday, but even huge stars can't get everything. Instead, he had to settle on a James Bond-inspired Omega watch.
"I got this watch ... It's James Bond's watch," Joe proudly told MTV News on Wednesday (August 18) at the New York premiere of "Camp Rock 2." "It shoots lasers out of it for certain people," he added.

The day before his August 15 birthday, Joe had a mini-surprise party thrown for him on stage at a show in Hershey, Pennsylvania. How did he spend the day itself? Relaxing: "[I celebrated] with family and friends," he said. "It was awesome. We sat by the pool and hung out."
Joe seemed genuinely pleased with his watch, although when he performed with his brothers on "Good Morning America", he still seemed to really want that dog. "Besides a dog, I don't know," he said when asked about his birthday wishes. "That's all I kind of wanted. I don't know [what we're going to do to celebrate]. These guys are not telling me what they're doing."
Perhaps his 22nd birthday will deliver him a pooch.

Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato ready to rock again

It's been two years since Camp Rock was unveiled to the world, creating a star out of cheerful teen singer, Demi Lovato, and making even bigger stars out of the Jonas Brothers. Camp Rock delivered some of the Disney Channel's best ratings ever, spawning a bestselling soundtrack -- and now, it's rare to go more than a day without reading a news story about the film's young stars.
So it came as no surprise Disney was so eager to make a sequel, and, on Sept. 3, Lovato and the Jonas Brothers all return for Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (airing on Family Channel). As is the case with most sequels, the musical numbers are bigger and the stakes are higher this time around.
"We have a much bigger budget now," Joe Jonas says. "We haven't stayed on the same set for more than three days at a time, and that's really exciting -- both inside and outside, and the inside sets are absolutely massive."
Adds Lovato: "We definitely have more dancing in Camp Rock 2. We made the routines even bigger and more fun. It was a lot of work, but it was definitely worth it."
But although there are still plenty of upbeat song-and-dance numbers to be had, Camp Rock itself is in trouble, threatened by the glitz and glam of the new Camp Star, conveniently situated right across the lake. A musical showdown is imminent, but the situation is made all the more complicated when Nick's character, Nate, develops a star-crossed romance with one of Camp Star's campers.
Nick admits he was a little bit intimidated by his bigger role in The Final Jam, but found his work on the family's Disney Channel sitcom JONAS helped prepare him for the challenge.
"I think JONAS really helped me -- helped all of us, actually," Nick says. "We learned a lot on the set of the show, and we feel really comfortable in front of the camera now. So it wasn't that scary when it came to doing more in Camp Rock 2."
Meanwhile, Joe and Demi's characters, Shane and Mitchie, struggle to develop their burgeoning relationship while still keeping Camp Rock afloat.
"Shane has gotten a lot nicer. In the first one, he was kind of a jerk and he was trying to figure out how he wanted to be," Joe says. "This time, he's a lot more confident and finds happiness in wanting to know happiness and getting to know Mitchie. They both want to spend more time together, but they're finding it hard."
But the real question is: Will Shane and Mitchie finally kiss in The Final Jam?
"I can't reveal that information!" Joe exclaims.
"You'll have to wait and see," adds a coy Lovato.
Lest any Kevin Jonas fans worry he's getting left out, he assures his defenders he won't be "the other one" in The Final Jam.
"I think that my character grows up in a different way. Jason becomes a counsellor for the junior rock band, to father them through the ups and downs," Kevin explains. "Typically, people think a love interest is how you grow up, and I think that my role in this movie actually sets that apart. It shows that you don't have to have a relationship to be a mature person; you can have responsibility. I think that's a very, very cool thing."
Just as their characters have matured since Camp Rock, Lovato and the Jonas Brothers have grown up themselves. Lovato has become a pop princess in her own right, Nick formed his own band, Nick Jonas and the Administration, Joe is developing his acting career and Kevin is now a married man. Do they ever think they're getting too old for things like Camp Rock?
"I don't think we're ever getting too old for this, because, as a band, you can always grow. And it's the same with acting," Joe says. "There are days when getting going is hard, but you know that you get to go do something that will make people happy. We have the best, most passionate fans in the world and we love what we do."
Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam airs Friday, Sept. 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Family Channel.

Newlywed Kevin Jonas takes married life on the road

Kevin and Danielle Jonas got married in December, but the honeymoon's not over yet. Although the Jonas Brothers are busy promoting their upcoming Disney Channel movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (Sept. 3), and just kicked off their 2010 tour, that hasn't kept the couple apart. They've got their own tour bus, with all the amenities: DVD player, kitchenette, bedroom. It even expands so there's room for their new puppy, Riley, a 9-month-old Yorkie-Maltese mix. As rain pelts the bus and the ridiculously adorable Riley busies herself with a squeaky toy, USA TODAY catches up with the newlyweds before the band's recent Bristow, Va., concert.
Extended honeymoon: "I've been on so many buses and trains and planes, it's really nice to have our own space," says Kevin, 22. They're just five cities into the tour, so no one's suffering from cabin fever quite yet. The perk of being on the road: "I get to be with him all the time," says Danielle, 23, a former hairstylist. While the guys rehearse, "the caterer has been teaching me new dishes."
"She's a great cook," Kevin enthuses. "She makes the best chicken parm."
That Target touch: The couple bought a house near Kevin's parents' in Dallas, but meanwhile, they're making the bus as homey as possible. "I brought my pillows from home," says Danielle. "The hardest thing is packing, especially for a girl. But Kevin's such a pro at touring, he made the transition easy for me."
"We have this method, where we use different (suitcases) that hold the clothes and things you'll need for different days," says Kevin. "We're also putting up family photos. We went shopping at Target to get some new rugs, and we have great food in the fridge."
Officially a fan: "I love watching people fawn over him," Danielle says. "I'm a fan, too. I wish I could get out in the middle of it and scream along."
"And she comes with us to meet-and-greets," where fans ask to be introduced to her, Kevin says.
He loves the attention she attracts. "We went to a gamers' convention and no one recognized me, so I got to stand back and watch all these guys gawk at my beautiful wife."
Fitting in with the band: Brothers Nick, 17, and Joe, 21, took her right in. "We spent the first two nights (of the tour) on their bus, and that was fun," Kevin says. "They joke around with her all the time, just like she's their sister."
"Adding a new element to a rock band is always risky," says Nick. "But with Danielle, it's been all good. And (the brothers) still find time to hang out, just the three of us, too."
"We all watch movies together," says Joe. (Spotted on the bus: A DVD of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.)
Still dating: "We do date nights a lot," says Kevin. "And we have breakfast every morning and walk around to see the sights. Like yesterday, we did a little shopping and went to Georgetown Cupcakes (in Washington). They made us about two dozen cupcakes with the Jonas Brothers logo on them."
With all this together time, have they discovered any new annoying qualities?
"You know, I've come to love his annoying qualities," she says. "Oh, whew!" he says.
Life after the Jonas Brothers? "Everyone wants to know when you're having kids. They're just never satisfied," Kevin says. "We're just enjoying each other right now. But we'd love to see our kids running around and playing with Uncle Joe and Uncle Nick."
"Uncle Joe, that would be crazy," Danielle says, laughing.
"Yeah, what a mess," Kevin agrees.
For now, they're focusing their parental instincts on Riley. "She has the whole venue to play in before a show," Kevin says. "And we just bought headphones for her so the noise won't be too much."
