Joe Jonas was born Joseph Adam Jonas in
Casa Grande, Arizona, on August 15, 1989.
Joe rose to fame as a member of the boy band
the Jonas Brothers, and has gone on to appear
in Disney Channel original movies and
guest-star on television.
Josephâs original plan, before becoming a singer,
was slightly different than his brothers. He first
dreamed of becoming a comedian and wanted to
audition for sketch comedy shows, but he was
always attached to music and loved listening to
different kinds of music, especially rock. In his
spare time he enjoys jogging and working out.
His favorite color is blue, and some of Joeâs
favorite foods are Chicken cutlet sandwiches
with mayo, and Chocolate marshmallow ice cream.
His favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber, and
he enjoys the sport Wiffel Ball.
Why are you a Joe Jonas fan? Many people don't
know him, speak ill of him and invent bad name but
the truth is... He's great. He's a fun, kind, friendly
and humble person. Joe worked hard for everything
he has and he deserves it. I'll be honest, he's very
talented and I like the way he sings, I like his songs,
but I'm not a fan of his music but him as a person.
I don't know if Joe inspires people, I just know that
he inspires me and beyond all, I'm proud to have
heard of him seven years ago, 'cause ever since my
life has changed. I never met him but I went to some
of his concerts and I tried to do everything to meet
him, I never before used to talk to strangers or risk
everything. I don't know why but I thought if I helped
others and if I did good deeds, I would meet him.
Honestly, I don't know why I thought that but now,
I'm very thankful, because I'm different, I'm a better
person because of him. The way in which he didn't
surrender, inspired me. The way he has courage to
go on, gave me courage. He should not change, and
he has not to pretend to be someone else, because
Joe is amazing just the way he is. JOE, BE HAPPY.
Why do you wanna be the Fan of the Month? I have
so many reasons, but I prefer to start from the
beginning. I saw Joe on TV for the first time seven
years ago. I remember I saw on TV a video called
âKids of the futureâ by a new band called âJonas
Brothersâ and I just asked me: âWho are they?â.

Jonas Brothers endorse the Bayer Contour USB diabetes device
A new diabetes blood glucose monitor from Bayer Diabetes Care has been endorsed by the diabetic celebrity Nick Jonas. The Contour USB device was launched today in the UK and Ireland, and features a âplug and playâ functionality that Bayer believe could revolutionise diabetes care .
Users of the blood glucose meter are able to track trends in their blood glucose levels on the move, and transmit their data directly to a healthcare professional. Nick Jonas, who has diabetes, praised the new technology for making his busy schedule more easy.
Dr. Iain Cranston, Consultant Physician at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth reportedly commented: “This technology has the potential to transform the way people manage their diabetes; instead of seeing a single blood glucose level, they can now simply see and review the whole picture. Up until now visualisation of this data has been difficult and people with diabetes have often just been reacting to their one-off blood glucose levels on a real-time basis, but Contour USB gives them a much bigger overview, enabling them to spot regular patterns and potential problems emerging and allowing them to take a more proactive role in their condition.”
Britney Spears, Madonna, U2, Bruce Springsteen Are Billboard Top Money Makers
Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Pink and Kings of Leon also make the top 40 list for 2009.
Billboard magazine’s fourth-annual Top 40 Money Makers list is topped by U2 this year. The Irish superstars raked in more than $108 million in 2009, mostly through their gigantic 360-degree tour â the most expensive rock production to ever hit the road â which is also destined to be the highest-grossing tour of all time.
In addition to being topped by the big three from the ’80s â U2, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen â the list also features a number of younger acts banking major cash, among them Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Kings of Leon and Taylor Swift.
Among the variables figured into the list were money earned from CD and digital sales, publishing royalties and all forms of streaming media, as well as touring from the first week of 2009 through January 3, 2010.
The top three included Madonna, who piled up $47.2 million from her Sticky and Sweet stadium/arena tour, licensing and merchandise as well as a lucrative 360 deal with Live Nation. Veteran rocker Bruce Springsteen took the #2 spot with $57.6 million through a combination of touring, more than 2 million digital downloads and hefty publishing revenues thanks to the fact that he writes all his own songs.
Britney Spears proved that touring is a girl’s best friend by surging in at #5 ($38.8 million), raking in more than $36.4 million for her worldwide arena tour in support of 2008′s Circus album, as well as money from more than 7.5 million downloads. The road was very, very kind to Pink as well, earning her the #6 spot ($36.3 million), with all but $1 million of that rolling in courtesy of her acrobatic Funhouse world tour.
Also earning big bucks was teen Taylor Swift, #21 with $17.2 million, whose touring only accounted for half her cash, which mostly came from CD royalties for her mega-selling Fearless. In fact, Swift’s royalties were topped only by Michael Jackson’s, which surged in the year of his death.
Jackson was just ahead at #20 with $17.3 million, from a combination of CD and ringtone royalties ($13.2 for albums, $255,000 for ringtones), as well as cash from “This Is It,” the highest-grossing concert film of all time, earning more than $72 million at the box office.
Kings of Leon also crashed the list at #25 with $14.4 million, $1.4 million of which they earned for their breakthrough Only by the Night disc, which sold 1.2 million copies. Another $9.9 million came from their non-stop touring.
Green Day came in at #32 with more than $12.1 million, mostly from their 21st Century Breakdown album and more than $8.8 million in touring. Lil Wayne â who is headed to prison for a year on Tuesday â came in at #30 with $12.8 million, $10 million of which came from the highest-grossing hip-hop tour of the year, not to mention the most lucrative rap trek Billboard has ever tracked.
Among the other acts making the list: reunited jam giants Phish (#37, $9.9 million), greasepaint rockers Kiss (#34, $11.8 million), former Beatle Paul McCartney (#31, $12.2 million), road hogs the Dave Matthews Band (#17, $20 million), Elton John (#14, $22.1 million), Nickelback (#12, $23.6 million), Fleetwood Mac (#11, $24.7 million), Metallica (#10, $25.5 million) and AC/DC (#4, $43.6 million).
