Me hanging with Nick, Joe, and Kevin in Philadelphia last summer! (Check out Mama J in the background!)
All of us at J-14 love the Jonas Brothers -- but when it comes to being the biggest JB fan in the office, any of the editors can tell you that I have the biggest case of OJD (Obsessive Jonas Disorder)! And every time I get to hang with "the boys" -- as I like to call 'em -- my love for them grows more and more.
I've known Nick, Joe, and Kevin personally for about two years and I can honestly say that they are the nicest boys out there --Â fame has not changed them one bit. They never fail to give me a hug and always ask how I'm doing. It's the sweet, little gestures that show you that they really care.
Some of my favorite JB memories, you ask? Too many to name! But if I had to make a list:
-Seeing the boys over 7 times in concert
-Spending two whole days with them last summer on during their Burning Up tour
-Hanging out in a flight simulator with Nick and Frankie on a naval base in Virginia Beach
-Having Joe accidentally kick a beach ball at me on stage --Â I was standing in the pit -- and then waving to me in front of the whole crowd (Swoon!)
-Sitting a row away from the entire Jonas family at the 3D premiere in L.A.
-Joining the brothers on their 3D theater invasion tour
-Eating dinner with the boys backstage on tour
-Hearing their new song "Poison Ivy" in its beginning stages last summer, while I was hanging out on their recording bus
-Doing a photo shoot with their backup band, Bulldozer! (Hi John, Garbo, Jack, and Ryan :-))
AND SO MANY MORE!
But, hands down, my favorite moments with JB always include the fans -- you girls are SO passionate about the guys and even I get a rush when I see fans screaming for the boys in concert, chasing after their bus, and in tears when they shake JB's hands.
And now on the release day of their fourth studio album Lines, Vines and Trying Times, I couldn't be more proud to call the Jonas Brothers, not only incredible guys, but my friends.
Your turn: What's your favorite thing about the Jonas Brothers? How big is your OJD? If you got to say one thing to Nick, Joe, and Kevin, what would you say?
