Joe Jonas Covers 'Paper' Magazine's Summer Music Issue

Joe Jonas looks dapper in a Neil Barrett tuxedo, shirt, and bow tie on the cover of Paper magazine’s Summer Music Issue.

Here’s what the 21-year-old entertainer had to share:

On branching out from the Jonas Brothers: “My brothers [Kevin and Nick] and I, we’re like each other’s best friends, and I think it’s that foundation that makes me feel like I can really do this on my own for a second.”

On the inspiration for his upcoming album, Fastlife: “I don’t mean to name-drop but about a year-and-a-half ago I met Bono, and he told me to write music that was really honest, to not be afraid to go there.”

Nick, on Joe going solo: “I think it’s good that he tried out a few things to see what felt best. As Joe has grown as a man, it’s been really interesting to see how that’s influenced his sound. And now he’s landed in a real sweet spot. When we all heard the music, right away it was like, ‘This is where you need to be.’”
