Billboard Cover: A Candid Conversation With Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas on Surviving Disney, Their Huge New Tour and Pop Stardom on Their Own Terms
Posted by Eliza           on Jul 21           tags: Article, Demi Lovato, Interviews

BANNER SITE

Though it’s only a little after 9 a.m., Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are already bickering. They’re seated on the terrace at the ritzy Wynn ­brunchery Tableau on a hot Las Vegas summer ­morning, and Lovato has asked Jonas to tack fries onto his meal so she can “have one and not feel bad about myself.” When the server arrives, Jonas requests an off-menu egg white omelet — then casually adds, “You know what? These fries look so good, I might just get them.” But Lovato has already changed her mind. “No, no. He’s not going to get the fries. I’m watching what he eats. You’re ­welcome, honey.” She rests a patronizing hand on his shoulder. Jonas shakes his head. “You threw me right under the bus.”

Jonas and Lovato, both 23, were Disney Channel charges who started working before they were tweens and have been singing and acting ever since. Each has been, in his and her own way, through the ringer. Jonas’ experience with pubescent pop-rockers the Jonas Brothers left him “bruised and a little jaded,” says his and Lovato’s manager, Phil McIntyre. And Lovato just marked four years of sobriety after a hard-fought battle with mental illness and addiction. But both are now midstride into a second act that, like the first, they’re experiencing together — but this time on their own terms. (And no, they are not, nor have they ever been, romantically entangled.)

In May 2015, Lovato and Jonas ­partnered with McIntyre to launch Safehouse Records with help from Island. Their first release: Lovato’s fifth album, Confident, which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200, launched the coy I-kissed-a-girl anthem “Cool for the Summer” and led to grown-woman fare like her new song, “Body Say.” The latest release, from June: Jonas’ second post-boy-band LP, Last Year Was Complicated, which also notched a No. 2 peak, led by the surging R&B of “Close.” On June 29, the pair — her an established celebrity aiming to stay fresh, him striving to prove men can be pop megastars too — kicked off a 44-city co-headlining arena tour, Future Now, a “seamless night of music,” says Jonas, where they take turns in the spotlight and sometimes back each other up.

It’s not their first time together on the road. Lovato recalls getting mad at her straight-laced pal while playing their ­favorite card game on tour in 2008 and 2009: “He’d only say ‘BS.’ I’d be like, ‘Bullshit?! Is that what you mean?'” She also teases Jonas’ “little ‘fro” on the poster for Disney’s Camp Rock, the filming of which solidified their best-friend status almost a decade ago. Today, Lovato, who lives in North Hollywood, is outspoken on social media, candidly discussing her past ­struggles but also ­beefing with Taylor Swift over ­feminist bona fides and incurring the wrath of Mariah Carey‘s lambs by riding for Ariana Grande. Meanwhile, Jonas, who lives in Sherman Oaks, Calif., explores the ­complexities of modern ­masculinity, both as a glammy top 40 singer and an actor. He plays a gay MMA fighter in the cable drama Kingdom and an aggro fraternity brother in 2016 Sundance success Goat, alongside James Franco.

These days the two enjoy cigars and espresso shots, nerd out over conspiracy theories, watch dumb comedies (but don’t really read: “No books,” says Jonas) and call each other with any personal crisis. Lovato demurs on the subject of her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama, until June her ­boyfriend of six years, but says Jonas has been there for her and that they’ve been making music together on the bus. “I work with him on being more vulnerable,” says Lovato. “He’s doing an awesome job.” Replies Jonas: “Thanks.”

Demi, you left the 2010 Jonas tour early after an infamous incident in which you punched your dancer. Had you opened up to Nick about your ­struggles?

LOVATO I distanced myself as I was getting involved with self-destructive things. After treatment, I had to have some time sober before I wasn’t embarrassed to talk to him. Nick says I sent text messages, but I don’t remember shit. The first time we saw each other since that tour was my [2012 Los Angeles] concert at The Greek. We caught up right before the show, then performed. It was an emotional reunion — I got one of my best friends back.

Nick, what did you think when that happened?

JONAS That we were going to get sued. I mean, it was bad. On top of losing a friend, we have seven dates left, it’s a big production, people are expecting to see Demi and that’s not going to happen. I was angry, because a week before I pleaded with her to confide in me. We talked on the plane for two hours.

LOVATO Really? To be totally honest, I don’t remember that. It’s unfortunate I had to go through that stuff in order to appreciate what I have in front of me.

Now Nick drinks and you don’t.

JONAS She gave me the right to have a drink around her, but I’m never, ever drunk around Demi.

LOVATO Although I want to see him drunk.

JONAS (Firmly.) No, you don’t.

How do you help one another if you’re having a bad day on tour?

JONAS My first instinct is to be like, let’s get out of the shit, let’s pull ourselves out of the rough. Demi can sit there a little longer.

LOVATO Women are more emotional and sometimes I just want to be heard. So to have him listen is very helpful.

JONAS I’m in a bizarre time in my life where I’m single, but that has been tricky. And she likes drama, so I’m able to talk about my dating shit without feeling bad.

LOVATO I’m like, “Soooo, what’s the ­gossip? Who is it? Tell me everything!”

Nick, what do you mean by “tricky”?

LOVATO (Interrupting.) He’s a guy in his 20s and he’s famous and he likes to have a lot of fun. Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, “Get out of that. You could f– anybody that you want right now, so have fun and do that.”

JONAS The tricky thing is, from what I’ve heard, I’m a bit emotionally unavailable.

LOVATO (Sighs.) I give him a lot of advice. He doesn’t always take it.

Nick, your breakup with model-actress Olivia ­Culpo is a big part of your new album’s ­narrative…

JONAS It is. I’m in such agony. I’m dying inside! (Laughs.)

When that happened, did you call Demi?

JONAS I internalize things, so we have this rule that we never want to hear about it in a tweet or something. She’d read me the riot act, so she’s the third person I call — my dad, Joe, then Demi. She was like, “Just go, ­create and be free.” She also said some other things…

LOVATO (Laughs.) I go, “Honestly, I didn’t like her anyway.” It’s not because she’s mean or anything, but he has such a great sense of humor and I want him to be with someone that makes him laugh. I can tell if something’s up because he’ll close off.

Demi, you’re single now. Is it too soon to think about dating?

LOVATO It’s not on my mind, but I welcome anything. I’ll have fun. But a ­relationship … I won’t want that for a long time.

Tell me about your friendship early on, when you were filming Camp Rock.

JONAS Well, for a couple of years there was the Joe and Demi romantic thing, so I’d be this emotional bridge for them. But she and I were productive — we’d write songs about it. We became even closer because it was never going to be [romantic].

LOVATO There’s a song on my first album called “Gonna Get Caught” about how I thought Joe was a player. I remember we were on the bus writing the bridge, and Joe is like, “I think it should have a happy ­ending.” I’m like, “No, I don’t think it should.” And poor Nick is sitting there like, “What are we actually deciding here?”

Did you know how odd your lives were?

LOVATO We joked around that it was Disney High, except we all were shooting shows and really overworking. I joke that I sometimes have PTSD after leaving the channel, because if my schedule starts to get too busy, I rebel and I get bitchy…

JONAS (Mockingly.) No!

LOVATO F– off. (Laughs.)

Did you feel pushed by adults in your life?

LOVATO Not by my family, but when you’re on set, you work like an adult. I always wanted to be the next Shirley Temple, to be the youngest person to ever win a Grammy and an Oscar. It didn’t turn out that way. I don’t regret it, but I probably won’t allow my kids to get into the industry unless it’s on their terms.

JONAS I have really musical parents, and my dad was always encouraging, but the desire to get onstage and perform really did come from me. I’d never push my future children.

Let’s talk politics. You’re both yuuuuge Trump supporters, right?

JONAS (Laughs.) I keep my political views to myself. We both come from conservative households with a religious backbone, but we’ve both evolved quite a bit in the way we see the world. (To Lovato.) Um, don’t you want to tell us about Hillary Clinton?

LOVATO When I went through my shit, I realized it was for a reason — to make a ­difference. I can share my story a ­million times, but it’s not as tangible as going to Capitol Hill. Hillary is in ­support of mental health care and, yeah, I’m a Democrat.

You’ve had your share of ­Twitter ­drama, but Nick seems to live ­drama-free. Any advice for your friend, Nick?

LOVATO Keep my mouth shut?

You recently stood up for Ariana Grande at Mariah Carey‘s expense. Did you hear from Mariah or her people?

LOVATO No. (Laughs.) I’m sure she’s sitting on diamond records not giving a f– what I have to say. That’s fine. I don’t even give a f– what I have to say. That’s why I just say it.

You’re visible LGBTQ allies, but some have suggested you’re stringing the community along for a fan base. Is that unfair?

JONAS Of course. Think about my past and where my love for performance comes from — musical theater. And playing this gay fighter in a very macho world for Kingdom, it requires me digging really deep, and I do it with respect and honor.

LOVATO For me, it’s a little personal. It’s obvious what my [“Cool for the Summer”] lyrics are about. Just because I never said anything bluntly [about experiences with women] doesn’t mean I’m exploiting it.

Nick, you spoke at the Stonewall vigil after the Orlando tragedy and got backlash.

JONAS I wouldn’t change a thing. That’s a moment — and in general the time we’re in in this country — where unity, support and raising our hand and saying we can make change is what’s important, so it’s a shame when people make it about something else.

Nick, you go to college in Goat, but neither of you did in real life. If you went now, would you be dorm mates?

LOVATO That would be weird. I don’t want to see him f– other people.

JONAS No, after Goat, I’d make it my ­mission to have an apartment off campus.

LOVATO I wanted to get my own apartment when I was 5 and my mom said no.

JONAS I wonder why.

LOVATO Even then I wanted my own place, so I don’t think a dorm would be good for me to share with anybody.

Nick Jonas on Touring with Demi Lovato and Being a “Recovering Teen Star”
Posted by Eliza           on Jul 14           tags: Article, Demi Lovato, Future | Now: The Tour, Interviews, Updates

BANNER SITE

The day is bright and balmy, and the bustling crowd at Sweet Butter Kitchen, Café and Market, a country-style bistro in Sherman Oaks, Calif., is dressed for the heat: guys in shorts and flip-flops, girls in tanks and topknots. And then there’s Nick Jonas, in a charcoal wool Rag & Bone hat, a long-sleeve Ann Demeulemeester shirt, and Nudie Jeans. “Last night was kind of chilly,” he explains of his weather-defying look with a small laugh. “I woke up today thinking it would be the same temperature, but it’s clearly not.” How much overnight change can one guy take? Seemingly, one minute Jonas is a cherub-faced boy-bander with a head of soft curls, and the next he’s this man, a full-fledged sex symbol with a buzz cut. As an actor, he’s drawn to more mature roles. In this fall’s frat-hazing drama, Goat, he plays a morally conflicted fraternity brother. And his new album, Last Year Was Complicated, mines a transformative breakup. Still, he exudes an essential sweetness, and it’s this duality—the interplay of light and dark, pop and pathos—that makes him so exciting to watch.

You’re touring with your new album. Just how much does your onstage look match your personal look?
I go for things that pop a little bit more on-stage—you gotta bring your showmanship. But I still like for everything to be within the bounds of what I wear on the street. I think it has a lot to do with splitting my time between music and acting. Being in character 12 hours a day makes you want to be yourself the rest of the time.

What’s your favorite part of being on the road?
The food. I love trying barbecue from all around the country: Houston, St. Louis … There’s an amazing frozen-custard place in St. Louis called Ted Drewes that I always try to stop at. Also, I toured so long not being 21, so these past two and a half years, it’s been fun to go to bars.

Wait—are you saying you didn’t drink until you were 21?
[Laughs] No. But I was smart. I didn’t go out. I wasn’t delusional about the fact that people could pull out their phone and see how old I was.

How does touring with Demi Lovato compare with touring with your brothers?
Working with Demi is truly unique. She’s a strong woman. A lot of people are concerned about speaking their mind, but she’s fearless. She and I have been through a lot together over the past eight years, and seeing how far she’s come, in her recovery and as a person, has been amazing.

On the subject of recovery, you recently participated in a Reddit AMA in which you described yourself as a recovering teen star.
For a long time I chose not to accept it—the complications that come with [fame]. The experiences we had, the kind of crazy ride we were on, were going to have some effect. But I think I turned out OK, with a reasonable amount of sanity.

No swinging from the chandeliers.
I enjoy my cigar and beverage, and that’s about it. Really good Cuban cigars—Cohíba Behike 52s. I’m kind of an old man.

Have you always felt older than your years?
Yeah, I was forced to get my act together at an early age. Having a real job at 8 [Jonas played Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol on Broadway] sounds funny, but, you know, they really do treat you like an adult. They expect professionalism onstage and off.

You’re getting a lot of attention for your role in Goat. How is Nick Jonas the actor different from Nick Jonas the pop star?
I become someone else while I’m acting, but music stuff has got to be completely authentic. They complement each other. I don’t think I would have been able to be as fearless in the “Close” video, where I had to do things that are by nature uncomfortable, without acting experience. I’m drawn to stuff that puts me on the edge a little bit.

Who is the first person who struck you as cool?
My dad’s friend Roger Hodges. He was this bald, guitar-playing badass. I mean, he was in the worship band at our church. When I was 4 or 5 years old, I told my parents I wanted to look like him. They couldn’t understand it. But he was a badass with his bald head.

Have your tastes evolved since then?
As I got older, Elvis Costello became a big fashion icon for me. I did one photo shoot where I wore vanity glasses. But it felt stupid—I felt like a fraud—so I just let it go.

When you look back on your style, is there anything else that makes you cringe?
I went through an Ed Hardy phase. That burned really hot really fast. But then, besides that? I’ve had a few moments, things that were on-trend years ago that now are just insane. And I’m a firm believer that men should not tuck their pants into their shoes. The relationship between clothing and a man is really interesting. You have to be confident first before whatever you’re wearing has any effect. I’ve seen people pull off some pretty bold s— because they were confident about it.
