Joe Jonas' New Solo Act Gets Booed, Pelted With Basketballs
Just last month, DC9 reported that Dallas' own (Westlake, to be exact) Joe Jonas would be branching out on his own solo project.
Seems the middle JoBro was feeling pigeon-holed in the Disney set, so he has taken a sort of bad boy approach with his new stuff. His people, whoever they are, have even gone as far to say that Joe is aiming to be a "sexier Justin Timberlake."
According to The New York Daily News, though, people didn't take too kindly to the Disney star's new attitude.
Reportedly, his set for the Paper magazine party in the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn last week was booed. And, to top it off, Jonas was the recipient of some swift moving basketballs to the face, tossed at him while onstage. Luckily for him, they were not regulation size, rather, they were miniature basketballs.
But it certainly begs several questions:
Who brings a basketball to a concert?
Do people even play basketball in Williamsburg?
Why would Jonas play a show in the current hipster mecca of the universe?
Hard to say on all counts. But it certainly isn't a good way to a new career as a sexy bad-boy.
