  • Quotes

    • Kevin: Kissing's great!

    • Kevin: Do you have any friends of the opposite sex? Why can't we?

    • Kevin: Big Rob is hood!

    • Kevin: I think that whoever I am, I am because of my parents. I know that I want to make them proud. If I work hard and try to be the best I can be at things, it's really because of all the things they taught me.

    • Kevin: (About his brother Joe) He'll walk up to a girl on the street, out of nowhere, and say, "Hey, how are you doing?" The girl will turn around and look...as she's supposed to know who he is! It's really funny. Twenty percent of the time they just think he's weird.

    • Kevin: There was one time when I started freaking out because my guitar wasn't working and I realized that I had not turned it up. Now my guitar tech manages all the onstage stuff, and he'll look at me and give me a look like, "It's on" and I'll just laugh.

    • Kevin: "Burning Up" is so much fun to play. I think the audiences are really enjoying that.

    • Kevin: I will always notice a girl who's taken the time to dress up. A lot peopl dress in a super-casual way these days, almost sloppy. But that's not me, and that's not what I look for in a girl. If a girl looks very sloppy, even if she has a beautiful face, I won't look twice. Taking the time to dress up for special occasions, or even everyday occasions, makes a big impression on me.

    • Kevin: Every friend I've ever had has been the type of person who tells me the truth, no matter what. I never want anyone to be all, "Oh, Kevin, you're perfect the way you are!" If there's something going on with me, I want friends to be able to say, "Hey, you're being a jerk!" or "You know, you didn't handle that all that well." I like friends and girlfriends who are straightforward with me.

    • Kevin: I'm very proud of my brothers...I'm really inspired by their talent.

    • Kevin: I can talk a lot. It's weird because I was the shyest kid growing up, but now I'm really comfortable talking. And I like hearing fans talk about themselves too.

    • Kevin: I'm the clothes horse in the family. I'm the one who knows all the names of all the designers, and I always try on the latest clothes. I love wild shoes, and if a stylist brings in lots of different clothes to choose from, I'm the one who goes for the outfit that my brothers would never even try on!

    • Kevin: I know how it feels to be standing around by yourself, with no one coming up to talk to you, so I always try to make sure to reach out and say hello, to reach out and shake someone's hand.

    • Kevin: Keep on voting and maybe we can keep... "Burnin Up" the charts... Get it? Ha! Haha!

    • Kevin: (about Blues Clues) And who's this new guy Joe? And now supposedly Blue can talk. What is that?

    • Kevin: (to Joe) If 70% of the Earth is covered in water, then you think 50% would be cities? 30% would be covered in cities...all cities. We've paved everything.

    • Kevin: What kind of name is that? How do you say that? W-G-H-O-O-P-S. Wuh-goops!

    • Kevin: Treasure every single moment you spend with someone you care about.

    • Kevin: (About his brothers) They're the best little brothers a guy could ask for.

    • Kevin: I have a bunch of white guitars. Ever time you see me with one, it's probably not the same one. My brothers say I'm obsessed.

    • Kevin: I try to keep everyone on time. I tend to be early, and Joe's typically the last one out the door, but you know, it's okay.

    • Kevin: I'm a huge video chat guy. It's awesome!

    • Kevin: When you like something, push the limits. Try layering and put different styles together. Combining is beautiful.

    • Kevin: Vests paired with dress shirts, scarves, or suspenders are the best!

    • Kevin: I love boots. Dark patent leather ones are so sleek. I try to find them in vintage stores so no one else will have the same pair.

    • Kevin: Someone said I'm the glue; I fill in the cracks between the other two. So that's cool for me.

    • Kevin: To be honest, I haven't had that many dating disasters. But not knowing what to do is the hardest. You just end up being there and you're like, "Now what do we do?"

    • Kevin: (about his sweet obsession) Those mini Butterfinger bars...I have 100 a day. Well, not 100, probably four or five, but still...they're awesome!

    • Kevin: (While filming "Camp Rock") I felt like the older brother to the whole cast.

    • Kevin: (on what language he would love to learn) Italian. I think it would be an amazing language to speak. It's so romantic.

    • Kevin: I have dated a girl that my brothers didn't like, and it ended terribly. They were right, and now I listen to what everybody has to say.

    • Kevin: (While filming "Camp Rock") Me and Joe went out on the lake and took cool pictures!

    • Kevin: I've always wanted to pick someone up at the airport and have a movie-esque kiss!

    • Kevin: My purity ring fell off on vacation...at the wave pool at the Atlantis, in the Bahamas. I'm waiting for a new one to come in the mail. It's a little bit of a bummer. Mine is still there, just not physically. I was like, "Oh, man, this is not cool." Joe and Nick are wearing their rings. I want the exact same one again. It'll be back very soon!

    • Kevin: I love a good smile. It's also cool to have a good conversation with a girl.

    • Kevin: I don't like it when a girl is constantly complaining about how she looks.

    • Kevin: Through all the past photoshoots, we've been able to acquire most of the clothing. We've actually turned our living room into a wardrobe fitting room. I can't wait to come out with my own fashion line.

    • Kevin: (About the song "Hold On") This was the first single off the second record, and I think it was the first song that captured the transition from the first album to the second one.

    • Kevin: (On the Gibson Tour Bus) It's weird, because I'm used to my gear. I'm used to a full-on studio with music software system ProTools...no limitations. This has limitations.

    • Kevin: One time I took this girl out to eat at a really nice place in L.A. We ordered a ton of food, but when the bill came, I realized I forgot my wallet at home! My dad had to come bring it to me. It was so embarrassing! I didn't think it was big deal, but Nick and Joe still tease me about it!

    • Kevin: Hold on, Joe. Let everyone get their cameras and stuff, since you know this is going on YouTube.

    • Kevin: I have a very eclectic style from pop to emo to hardcore to your mom.

    • Kevin: (On his favorite type of shoe) I like...boots!

    • Kevin: My brothers and I are really close.

    • Kevin: I would be a good tour manager. I'm always asking the tour manager questions about how the tour runs.

    • Kevin: My nighttime starts at 11 p.m. I don't have trouble sleeping. I can fall asleep immediately, but I choose to stay up. I love to stay up.

    • Kevin: My favorite ice cream is rocky road because chocolate and marshmallows are my favorite. I would add cookie dough to it and a little bit of hot syrup.

    • Kevin: (about the silliest story ever written about him) There was one that said I was married. I was like, "No, no, that didn't happen!"

    • Kevin: I hate a girl who talks on her phone all the time when she's with me. It bugs the fire out of me! It's also not cool when a girl has a foul mouth, or if her friends are crazy or odd. If that's who she's hanging out with, it definitely rubs off on her.

    • Kevin: I'm very laid back-I can watch movies for hours at a time-so I like a girl who's easy-going, makes me laugh, and who likes to be constantly connected. I'm rarely home, so I love being with someone online, or texting, or on the phone. It's nice to be able to turn on my computer and see her buddy icon pop up.

    • Kevin: The minute I asked this one girl on a date, she thought I was her boyfriend. That's not the way it's supposed to be. Relationships take time.

    • Kevin: I'll know if I want to ask a girl on a second date in the first 10 minutes of our first date. If you're just getting to know each other and you're already laughing about things in each other's lives, then you know you're going to work out.

    • Kevin: When I'm around the girl I like, I sweat.

    • Kevin: [Once] on Valentines' Day, I wrote a letter to a girl, burned all the edges, rolled it up, put twine in it and then put it inside a bottle and painted everywhere she wanted to go on it. And then I melted a candle down on top of it. I had it waiting for her in the room.

    • Kevin: (about working with family) You have a security that everything is going to be okay, even when you mess up.

    • Kevin: For me, it (music) is just life in general. When you walk outside, you start hearing beats everywhere you go.

    • Kevin: (about his character, Jason, in Camp Rock) My character is a little out there, a little spacey, but I love it. I get to be a little loopy, and it's kind of fun.

    • Kevin: Christmas is my favorite time of year because it's the whole idea and spirit of the thing. Everyone wants to be together and I love being in a relationship during Christmas. It's just the idea of being in love during the best time of the year that is best.

    • Kevin: Sometimes, I do love getting into the car and driving somewhere, going someplace new and exciting.

    • Kevin: When I see a girl I like, I get a nervous feeling in my stomach. That's how I know I really like someone; when I get that feeling.

    • Kevin: (about being a celebrity teenager) Of course, it's the best thing that ever happened to me, and this has been one of the most crazy and most fun lives ever. I have a blast every single day. I am blessed that I get to do this thing I love to do, and if I wasn't doing this, I'd probably be working at Starbucks. So the fact that I get to travel around on a tour bus all around the country is pretty awesome.

    • Kevin: I want a girlfriend who has a positive attitude and is easy-going. Plus she to understand my crazy schedule.

    • Kevin: (about what he does to make a girl feel special) I'll try to surprise her, like show up with Starbucks coffee--completely unannounced. I'm also gone a lot, so I'll try to call her as many times as I can without being weird.

    • Kevin: I like their confidence. They just walk in a way that's amazing.

    • Kevin: Girls are always a big test, but one thing I've learned is to keep trying.

    • Kevin: Break-ups, in general, are always bad. some break-ups are easier than others, but sometimes they're really hard. You learn to get through it. That's why I think love takes time and definitely should not be rushed into.

    • Kevin: I watched Gilligan's Island and Jurassic Park on the same day. And that night, I had a dream about a T-Rex eating Gilligan. I must've eaten bad food or something.

    • Kevin: It used to bug me when girls would wear their pajamas everyday to school.

    • Kevin: You wouldn't know it by looking, but I had no teeth in first grade.

    • Kevin: I was home sick one day and I didn't want to watch Dora the Explorer anymore or Blue's Clues on Nickelodeon because that was the only thing on in the morning. I turned off the TV and picked up a Teach Yourself Guitar book and I just read it and picked up a guitar and just chord by chord went.

    • Kevin: I got one move, one move, it's gold, it's gold, it's perfect. Everyone would be like, "Dude how did you do that move? That's ridiculous!"

    • Kevin: I was dating this girl and, oh my God, it was the worst. I kissed her and she had a hairy lip! I didn't say anything to her, but it was like, just go wax or something. It was terrible!

    • Kevin: (about his favorite hangout spot) Everything you could ever want is there. There's a Starbucks next to a McDonald's next to a Blockbuster. There's a nail salon for the girls and a record store. I walk in and don't really have to order. I've been there so many times that they know what I want.

    • Kevin: I once had a girlfriend who would send back the notes I had written her with all my spelling errors circled. I would get so upset. I didn't want to look like an idiot.

    • Kevin: When I was little, my dad was trying to teach me how to pump gas. We were on the road traveling and I put the nozzle down a little bit and the spray got in my eyes. I freaked out and ran screaming to the bathroom in the gas station. I remember I was knocking things over. It was embarrassing.

    • Kevin: I want fans to give me advice on girls; why do they always say they don't look good in pictures, even though they look great?

    • Kevin: Girls who have a strong belief system are beautiful in a great way.

    • Kevin: You'll be looking at magazines at an airport and you'll see a girl like, holding up a magazine and your face is like on the page and you're like, "Okay, I'm just walking away now." It's a little strange.

    • Kevin: One of my biggest pet peeves is when my brothers tell me how to drive. It just freaks me out, because they've never been behind the wheel before.

    • Kevin: I'm a people person, and I try to make everyone feel comfortable.

    • Kevin: I think guys should still open a door for a girl every chance they get, every time. They should try to take care of a girl as much as possible. She's like a princess, no matter what.

    • Kevin: (about embarrassing moments) I tried to avoid embarrassing things, I'm glad that it doesn't happen often.

    • Kevin: I have many unopened Star Wars figures in my attic.

    • Kevin: The most annoying thing a girl could do is text on her cell phone during the entire date.

    • Kevin: The Chronicles of Narnia books are great. I've been reading them again and I feel like I can appreciate the books even better now.

    • Kevin: I loved being the oldest because I bossed my brothers around!

    • Kevin: I'm a talker, so I talk to people. I'm not afraid to walk up to you and just start talking to you. I won't try to make you laugh, because it's not going to happen--I'm not funny at all. Comebacks for me are really bad. I can't come back if somebody comes at me. I guess I just have my own way of talking to people.

    • Kevin: I'm afraid of getting rejected by girls. And rejection can be the worst in music. I have to remind myself that although it may be risky, I'm doing what I love. I also know that if you don't take chances, then you'll never know what'll happen!

    • Kevin: I've always been scared of failing. I hate to disappoint those I care about. I want to make them happy. I'm such a people-pleaser, especially in relationships. I'm definitely working on it. I try not to be a pushover, and I'm really making an effort to voice my opinion more!

    • Kevin: I hate not having clean clothes. If I have a shirt and I wore it, it needs to be cleaned. I'm really weird about it.

    • Kevin: I don't get nervous holding hands with a girl. Actually, it kind of stinks when I want to hold her hand and she's like "Not so much."

    • Kevin: The minute you walk into prom with me, I want you to have fun.

    • Kevin: I like to start the morning by watching music videos. I'm well addicted to them.

    • Kevin: I keep my cell phone on vibrate so I never miss a call.

    • Kevin: When I really like a girl, I always talk about her.

    • Kevin: Socks make the man.

    • Kevin: I've fallen off stage before. I didn't get hurt, but I jumped back on stage and acted like I was supposed to fall.

    • Kevin: I'd have to say "Year 3000" is my favorite song from It's About Time because it's just the one everyone knows and loves to hear.

    • Kevin: I love bringing a girl to New York, because, you know, we're at home.

    • Kevin: The hardest aspect of a relationship is maintaining the relationship. But there's also physical temptation and being on the same spiritual level, which can be difficult.

    • Kevin: (About long distant relationships) It's hard work but if it's meant to be it'll work out.

    • Kevin: I consume too much sugar. It's a problem. I need to stop.

    • Kevin: I definitely would like to go into space.

    • Kevin: There's lots of places I would like to go to. I really want to visit Europe in general. Hawaii is always nice. I want to go to London, Paris, and Greece.

    • Kevin: The craziest thing I ever did was I told a teacher who just bought a new house that the realtor called, and said that his roof collasped. He called the number that I gave him, which was actually my cell phone, and I told him "April Fools!" and he freaked.

    • Kevin: I find that John Mayer and Switchfoot have really influenced me. But anything that is interesting both melodically and lyrically has a strong impact on me.

    • Kevin: A secret about my brother Nick is that he can drink about 30 cans of Diet Coke in a day and still want more. He never stops!

    • Kevin: I had this one teacher who was so mean. She gave unbelievable amounts of homework!

    • Kevin: (About his brother Nick being shy) Everyone says that because he's quiet, but he's not shy. He's Mr. Cool!

    • Kevin: [I like] someone who has confidence. Someone who will be real with me and talk to me.

    • Kevin: (about dealing with bullies) I made sure to make a few good friends, so that if anyone pushed me around, my friends would stand up for me.

    • Kevin: I hated middle school. I never fit in! I had like, like, two friends because I didn't connect with my classmates. I even got made fun of and beat up.

    • Kevin: Live like you are at the bottom even if you are at the top.

    • Kevin: (On his brother Nick having diabetes) I think, for him, he always knew that he had something special in his life, so this is an opportunity to really help a lot of people.

    • Kevin: Before a date, Joe and I straighten our hair.

    • Kevin: My little, little brother Frankie and I were watching a karate movie, so we were gonna practice by pretending to hit each other. I didn't mean to punch him, but I swung as hard as I could and knocked him in the face! Right away, when I felt his face in my hand, I was like, "Oooh!" He started crying. It was so bad. As you can imagine, I got grounded for that.

    • Kevin: I'm a sucker for blondes and redheads, but sometimes, the smile gets me right away. That's how I can tell if they're a genuine person or not.

    • Kevin: My name is Mufasa, I'm the King of the land. I'll come smack you with the back of my hand.

    • Kevin: Nicholas [Jonas] can't have other people wearing his socks. If you put on his socks, he'll get upset, and it's really funny!

    • Kevin: We [him and his brothers] wrote the song "Eternity" for our grandmother, who just recently passed away from cancer.

    • Kevin: If I wasn't a musician, I would be hairdresser.

    • Kevin: Being the oldest, I do everything my parents ask me to do. I try to help as much as possible.

    • Kevin: I don't think I'd ever reject anyone.

    • Kevin: (about him and his brothers; Nick and Joe) We don't really like to talk about our relationship status.

    • Kevin: (on what he looks for in a girl) I look for a girl who's cool. Like we just hang out and not see me as a 'celebrity'. I don't like it when girls run up and say 'I'm totally in love with you'. There's no mystery there. I mean from fans its great, but from a girl you're gonna date...it's different.

    • Kevin: (about him and his brothers being asked if they're married) A lot of people ask us because we all wear a ring on our left hand, but it's not true!

    • Kevin: I can't go to sleep without making my bed first. Even if it's been made in the morning, I have to go in and remake it. It's my quirky habit.

    • Kevin: (talking about his brother Joe) He takes a shower, takes forever and then once he gets ready, he has to ask you if he looks okay four times!

    • Kevin: I've flown across the country to see my crush.

    • Kevin: The girl's heart is important, and it's important that the girl has a good attitude.

    • Kevin: Pole vaulting really made me love school. I miss it now that I am home-schooled.

    • Kevin: I tried to beat my friend in a racing game on Xbox 360. We seriously played for like a couple of hours. She beat me and I got so mad!

    • Kevin: I sat through a school play for a girl once. It was actually a revue - singing and dancing, it was everything. And if I hear something off-pitch, I get a chill up my spine. So I had the worst headache by the end of the night, but to be there and support her meant a lot to her.

    • Kevin: I was recognized at a mall in our town. It was a little shocking someone could just know who you are without ever meeting them.

    • Kevin: The moment I picked up a guitar, that was the minute I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life.

    • Kevin: I used to get picked on a lot and I'm terrible at comebacks. But I handled it by finding a few good friends and hanging out with them. So when kids started to make fun of me or tried to push me around, my friends were there to stand up for me.

  • Kevin, or Paul Kevin Jonas the II, is a guitarist for the Jonas Brothers. He also sings back up along side his to brothers Nick and Joe...he really is the best Jo Bro though.moreless

    Kevin is really what i believe holds this band together. He brings a balence to the band. You have his goffy, fun, loving, silly side then his more serious, mature, adult side. He seems like the one brother who really knows who he is. Nick and Joe are still finding things out, and from recent news...finding out the hard way it seems. You never hear much about Kevin, he's always put on the back burner. This doesn't seem right to me. He should get a lot more respect for how far he has come and who he is. Maybe it's just because he is the oldest of the brothers, but really he is the silent leader i believe.moreless
  • Kevin jonas talented

    9.0
    Kevin Jonas may get the least amount of attention from the Jonas crazed fans, but he sure is down right talented. The oldest brothers has amazing skills on the guitar and is the sweet ,talkative, and energetic one of the three brothers. He prefers to be and the back round and just play the guitar, but after hearing him sing in certain songs, he should start thinking about doing some solo vocals in the Jonas brothers up and coming songs. Music wise the talent is there, but there is a little work to be done in the acting area. With the new Disney show JONAS Kevin will be able to get lots of practice.moreless
