Nick Jonas gives a thumbs up to JJJ backstage just before our interview with him in NYC on Monday afternoon (December 7).
The 17-year-old musician joked with us about why exactly he wants to walk in the President’s shoes one day. Nick shared, “I wanna see if there’s aliens! I mean, secretly, that’s the only reason I want to run for president. I just wanna read the book of secrets and that’s pretty much it. But in all seriousness, I just think walking in his shoes for the day would be an interesting experience and the president a lot of responsibility – a lot on his shoulders. So we’ll see if it actually happens, but it’s kind of a fun little dream right now.”
Nick also shared with JJJ about how he was sure this was the right time to come out with The Administration‘s album, saying, “I wasn’t sure at first. It took a lot of ideas, a lot of planning. When we started recording I knew it was time because we had this two-week window. I knew we could get it done in that amount of time, and that in that moment it was something that I was passionate (about), it was in my heart. And that if I waited any more amount of time there probably wouldn’t be another opportunity for me to do it. And so after we recorded it we said, ‘Great, we have this record. Now what do we do with it?’”
Check back tomorrow to see what else Nick told JJJ!
