The 22-year-old musician dished on his fave NKOTB song, pre-concert rituals and getting back out on the road. Check it:
On his favorite NKOTB tune: “I think the most notable song is ‘The Right Stuff.’ I secretly know the dance â€“ I donâ€™t usually tell people that. But if I had to, I could probably bust out.”
On what he does to prepare before going on stage: “We usually â€“ the guys and I, since I have a big band of guys, so thereâ€™s a lot of testosterone and adrenaline right before we go on stage â€“ we usually pump some weights. Then we usually have a word of the day. Everyone huddles up, and we say a quick prayer, and then on the count of three everyone says the word of the day. The word of the day is whatever was funny earlier that day, whatever makes us laugh.”
On going on tour with NKOTB: “Iâ€™m looking forward to getting back out on the road. Itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve toured. It will give me a chance to perform the new records, one of which is the next single. Itâ€™s a little bit more of an older audience, as far as the nostalgic crowd goes.”
FYI: Jesse was featured in a short video montage during DoSomething.org‘s Award Show last night (June 4). The Jonas Brothers, Jordin Sparks and Lauren Conrad were all featured, too!
