Nick Jonas sells Twitter ‘follows’ in exchange for iTunes sales: thirsty?

Nick Jonas

You’ve probably already seen this cover (which I cropped for your eyes) of Nick Jonas and his 12-pack abs for the October issue of Flaunt. Inside the issue, Nick grabs his package and tries to channel old-school Mark Mark in his Calvins. You can see the NSFW shoot (and the rest of the cover) here. Nick shows off his furry booty and happy trail. I want to characterize him as desperate, but there’s nothing he’s doing that plenty of thirsty starlets haven’t done already. In fact, this shoot is straight out of the Miley Cyrus “lose that Disney taint” playbook.

Nick is promoting a few things with this Flaunt feature. He has a new DirecTV series called Kingdom. I guess gets his kit off in this show. A lot. Nick told E! Online that he shows everything but the package itself on the show. He teases the possiblity of showing everything in the future. Nick says “if the art required it,” he’d “do whatever it takes to tell the story.” Art!

Nick also has a new single called “Jealous.” In the interest of promotion, he’s not only putting his tush on display but also pulling an old-fashioned bribe. Nick formally requested this his Twitter followers give 20+ copies of his single. He says he’ll follow anyone who proves that they followed his ridiculous instructions:

(1) Do you want me to follow you…

(2) Help me continue to share #JEALOUS with the world iTunes Gift 20 or more people and I will follow you. #sharejealousnickj

(3) Confirm your iTunes gifting with a screenshot of this confirmation screen #sharejealousnickj

[From Nick Jonas on Twitter]

Some of Nick’s Twitter followers have jumped right onto this plan. I don’t feel comfy calling any of them out directly, but some of them are gifting over 30 copies of his song. If he doesn’t follow them back immediately, they’re tweeting hysterically. What a mess.

Nick is essentially selling Twitter follows with this scheme. Does that bother you? Celebs have been known to do sketchy stuff like buy followers to make themselves look more popular. Nick’s putting a new twist on this nonsense by artificially inflating his own sales to fans who will do anything for a follow. C’mon, he’s not even going to read these people’s tweets. This is seriously unethical. It’s even more pathetic and thirsty than Taye Diggs following everyone on Twitter in exchange for nothing.

Happy Birthday, George R.R. Martin: Here Are 7 Times You Made Us Hate You!

Today is George R.R. Martin’s 66th birthday, and he certainly has a lot to celebrate.

He’s one of the world’s best-selling authors, there’s a wildly successful television series based on his work, and he makes life miserable for millions of people on a regular basis.

Yes, if you’re one of the 18 million people who watched Game of Thrones last season, you might hate GRRM even though you’ve never actually read his work.

And we’re right there with you. On countless occasions, Martin has ripped our hearts out and cast them aside like Theon Greyjoy’s severed wang:

Bran's Winterfell Fall


When a lovable kid gets paralyzed early in the story, you know the guy telling tale isn’t gonna spare your feelings.

But like a handlebar mustache on a hipster’s lip, our hate is thoroughly ironic.

We hate George because we so deeply love the world that he’s created with his A Song of Ice and Fire books that the death of even a minor character can feel like a real-life tragedy.

Based on his interviews, we know that Martin loves nothing more than shocking Game of Thrones fans with moments like Ned Stark’s beheading or Oberyn Martell’s eye-popping demise (retroactive spoiler alert if you’re behind on the story).

So for his 66th name day, we can’t think of a better present than to tell George that we truly love his ability to make us hate him.

So relax and enjoy some meat and mead, Mr. Martin. Then hurry up and finish the damn books.

Miley Cyrus Makes Semen Art Because the World Keeps Sh-tting On Her…Or Something

As we told you yesterday, Miley Cyrus unveiled an art exhibit in New York yesterday, and the show featured pieces are pure Miley.

There’s the five-foot bong she debuted on Instagram; the giant dildo with a joint glued to the tip; and, of course, something involving pineapples because Miley claims they result in tasty semen. (Or, as she calls it, “yummy c-m.”)

Like Picasso before her, Miley’s been asked countless times about what inspired her to turn the art world on its head.

Unlike Picasso, she gave an awesome, rambling, foul-mouthed answer to V magazine instead of just telling the truth and saying, “Weed.”

Miley Cyrus V Cover


Miley Cyrus covers this issue of V… while wearing an unusual bathing suit. Can this thing even get wet?!?

“This seems so f–king lame to say but I feel like my art became kind of a metaphor—an example of my life,” said Miley in a recent interview. 

I’ve always been so f–king lucky. Everything has always just been easy for me. And at the beginning of this year, I hated 2014 because everything that could go wrong kept going wrong.”

“Being in the hospital, my dog dying…Everything just kept s–tting on me and s–tting on me. So then I started taking all of those s–t things and making them good, and being like, I’m using it.”

She went on to explain how finding seemingly worthless trinkets and making them into art inspired her to take the negatives in her life and turn them into positives.

Wow. Maybe there’s something to the dildo-joint after all. 

Toward the end of the interview, Miley opened up about her method. And it’s exactly what you would guess:

“I just sit around and smoke weed anyway, so I might as well sit around, smoke weed, and do something. And this is me doing something,” she explained. “It was much weirder when I was doing it sober.”

Say what you will about Miley; you can’t accuse her of being dishonest.

Joe Jonas & Blanda Eggenschwiler have broken up after 20 months of dating

FFN_Celebs_Levis_Party_THUMB_041614_51386132

Don’t ask me why, but I still sort of care about the Jonas Brothers’ love lives. I’m sort of shocked that none of the brothers have publicly imploded actually – they were part of Disney machine, they publicly discussed their virginity, and their mother seems like a world-class nut-job. All necessary factors for any or all of the JoBros to implode. So far it hasn’t happened, although I wouldn’t really say they’re the most well-adjusted young men. Let’s take Joe Jonas. Joe has dated ladies like Camilla Belle, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato. For the past year and a half, he’s been with a young woman named… Blanda Eggenschwiler. For real, that’s her name! Joe and Blanda have been loved up all over the place… but no more. They called it quits, as of this week.

No longer his lovebug! Joe Jonas has split from his girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler after 20 months of dating, his rep exclusively confirms to Us Weekly.

“Joe and Blanda have mutually decided to part ways,” Jonas’ rep tells Us. “The split was amicable and the two remain friends, with great respect for one another.”

The former Disney star and Eggenschwiler, a graphic designer and model, started dating in November 2012 after being introduced through a mutual friend. In the following months, the Swiss-born beauty and her beau stepped out frequently together at parties and various Hollywood events.

The pair last attended the Cadillac & Refinery29 party together in Hollywood on Jun. 19, where an observer told Us that there appeared to be tension between the two. “He posed for photos by himself and then stormed inside,” an eyewitness told Us of Jonas.

The relationship also had many high moments. In January, the pair traveled to Hawaii together with his younger brother Nick Jonas and his girlfriend Olivia Culpo after attending a pal’s destination wedding. In May, they went to Nylon’s music issue party, where an observer noted: “You can tell Joe and Blanda are happy together,” adding that the couple seemed “to get along well” and were “light hearted” around each other.

Eggenschwiler, 30, is the latest lady to be added to Jonas’ list of exes, including Taylor Swift, Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato, and his pal Ashley Greene. In an extensive, tell-all interview with New York magazine last December, the middle Jonas brother, 24, reflected on his former flames — and his sexual history.

“I did other stuff before then, but I was sexually active at 20,” Jonas revealed. “I’m glad I waited for the right person, because you look back and you go, ‘That girl was bats—t crazy. I’m glad I didn’t go there.’”

Jonas — who was with Eggenschwiler at the time the interview was conducted — told the mag that he was happy with the relationship. “Now I’m with someone I really care about,” he said. “We get each other.”

[From Us Weekly]

I had forgotten that Joe talked about losing his virginity – Bedhead covered that interview last year. So, Joe Jonas had sex with Blanda. I guess. Do you believe that he and Blanda made sweet love to each other twice a week with the lights off? Or do you believe Blanda is the worst beard name ever? No, the worst beard name is probably Heteronormative McBeardy. Then again, at this point, I kind of think that if Joe Jonas was gay, he would just come out and talk about it, you know? Anyway… poor Joe. Hopefully he’ll find some young C-list starlet who wants to be photographed with a Jonas brother at Coachella. Oh, and Taylor Swift is single these days too. Will the exes reunite? Hahahaha.

NICK JONAS Meets His New Niece, Alena Rose

nick jonas with his nieceAwww… this Instagram pic is too cute not to post. Nick Jonas met his new niece, Alena Rose. He looks like he’s ready to settle into the role of uncle! Before Nick met his niece, he had a moment to chat with E! News.

It’s amazing. I’m actually flying right after this to meet my niece for the first time. He [brother Kevin Jonas] in love with this baby, it’s ridiculous. He sends me pictures every 10 minutes. I think it’s just like the joy of his life right now, so I’m excited to go [see] him.”

And it looks like baby Alena worked her charms on her uncle, too. She looks fascinated with Nick. Too cute!

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles Break Up!

Looks like it was a wrong direction! Taylor Swift and Harry Styles have broken up after only two months together.

Several reports are claiming that Swift and Styles have split because of their busy schedules and constant touring.

However we’re also hearing that Haylor got into a very heated argument on their romantic vacation to the British Virgin Islands. After the fight and subsequent split, Swift caught a flight back to the states while Styles stuck around and party hopped over to Richard Branson’s private Necker Island.

A twitpic of Swift fleeing BVI is after the jump:

It looks like Taylor couldn’t wait to get the heck out of there.

Taylor and Harry’s reps have yet to comment, but one thing is for sure: Taylor’s next single just wrote itself!

The Jonas Brothers Grab Lunch Together

Awww nice to see that even though they’re not working together all the time anymore the Jonas Brothers are still close and manage to spend time together! Nick, Joe and Kevin, along with a friend, were spotted grabbing some lunch together at Kings Road Cafe in West Hollywood today.

I don’t know about you but I still have a hard time believing how old these boys are now! I remember watching them on Hannah Montana with my daughter and now they’re adults!  And I will admit I am a fan of Kevin’s reality show too:)  I would love to see more of his brothers on the show though.

The Jonas Brothers Go Out For Sushi

jonas brothers go out for sushi

The Jonas brothers, as well as Kevin’s wife, Danielle, got together for some sushi. It’s good to see the brotheres, Joe, Nick, and Kevin, out together. They’re all working on their own things, but that doesn’t mean they’re growing apart. Nick was acting on Broadway for a while. Joe had a solo album. And Kevin and Danielle have a reality TV show.

Have you seen Kevin and Danielle’s reality TV show? I’ll ‘fess up right now and admit that I haven’t. However, I have one friend who says she IS obsessed with the show. She has episodes saved on her DVR. One day I’ll make it over so we can spend an afternoon watching them, maybe while we do some holiday baking or something. Are you a fan of the show?
