This afternoon I got an e-mail from a colleague alerting me to the fact that the term Joonas.net seemed to be a hot Internet search term, and being that the Jonas Brothers have a very similar name we initially thought this must be a new fansite dedicated to Nick, Joe and Kevin.
When I went there, I found that to be the exact opposite of what it actually is. You see it appears to be some robot-like site that generates the message: "The requested document is totally fake. Even tried multi. Nothing helped. I'm really depressed about this. And it goes on and on in about being a depressed robot or web server or something you seems to be having some sort of identity crisis: I mean, it's not your job to listen to my problems, and I guess it is my job to go and fetch web pages for you. But I couldn't get this one. I'm so sorry. Believe me!"
OK, OK, we believe you. And we're actually just sort of bummed that it's not a Jonas site, but instead some mysterious site run by a guy named Joonas in Finland. (This is true. We did our research.) Unfortunately that's all we know at this point, but we're thinking he's either an artist who is pranking us, or that Joonas is really some sort of depressed Web server. If it's the latter, we're here to talk!
For the most part, we can't argue with People's 100 Most Beautiful List for 2009. We certainly do think that guys like Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron are beautiful — no, actually, hot. And let's not forget dreamy.
And, yes, we cannot argue with the fact that Angelina Jolie, Frieda Pinto and Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato are very beautiful, strong women with amazing careers and boyfriends.
When we initially glanced at the list, we saw the name Jonas and thought, "Well, obviously, the Jonases are beautiful and totally deserve to be on this list. They are an uber-successful pop act, and it would be strange if they didn't."
But there was one thing that was not rational about this: The editors over at People may have forgotten a Jonas Brother! And, no we don't mean 8-year-old Frankie. Nick and Joe managed to make the list, but, the eldest Jonas, Kevin, didn't. It just seems weird that only two thirds of the world's cutest pop act would be named Most Beautiful.
Well, you know what? Kevin, you made our list. You always do. To us, every Jonas Brother is beautiful.
FROM BUZZWORTHY.MTV.COM: Huge Jonas day yesterday! The Jonas Brothers took to Twitter to reveal the cover art for their next album, Lines, Vines And Trying Times, due out June 15. The album cover photo shoot apparently took place in Corisica, Texas at Caleb's Diner.
While I loved the bright lights/ big city album art for A Little Big Longer a little bit better, the cover of Lines, Vines And Trying Times is the perfect portrait of the boys as they cross the bridge of their career from teen musicians to mature multimedia moguls — in addition to their massive world tour, their Disney TV show, "J.O.N.A.S.," premieres May 2nd, they’re working on the "Camp Rock" sequel, they’re launching a Jonas-inspired clothing line, and there’s their Jonas Group involvement with Honor Society and Demi Lovato — gotta support your friends, after all. ...

By now you've no doubt heard about Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas' little lunch date/ fender bender in Los Angeles over the weekend. (Check out photos from the former couple's tarnished afternoon here.)
The real news here — clearly — isn't that the former couple had a lunch date. The big scoop, as far as I'm concerned, is that Nick's Mustang Cobra has fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror. Very retro, classy touch on the part of young Mr. Jonas, I think. Nice car he's hanging them on, too.
I wonder what kind of ride Justin Gaston has going these days.

We all know Selena, Tay-Tay and Miley, but the latest girl to nab a Jonas is a bit of an unknown. Sure, 17-year-old singer/songwriter Jordan Pruitt might top the charts on Radio Disney and has toured with other Mickey favorites like Corbin Bleu and Raven-Symone, but it must have taken more than a performance of her single "My Shoes" to catch Nick's eye.
So what else is there to know about Jordy? In an interview with JustJaredJr.com last year, she revealed she is into recycling, spending time with her family and basketball. Boring.
She is a nail-biter (but trying to quit), she rides dirt bikes and recently started an entertainment company to discover other up-and-coming talent. Props to an adventurous spirit, but is this enough to keep the attention of superstar Nick? Or the Jonas fans? Only time will tell, and hopefully Camilla has some tips.
Check out photos of Jordan from her red-carpet appearance at "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience."
Even on a conference call, the Jonas Brothers can't seem to resist the urge to give me a personal shout-out. Sure, there were 30 or so (that's a complete approximation) other reporters on yesterday's call, but I was the only one who got a personal message from the guys. (For the record, they expressed how nice it was to talk to me again.)
OK, so I'm not just tooting my own horn, I'm also saying that working the cute-boy beat here at MTV News has its perks. I get to hobnob with heartthrobs like Zac Efron and the Jonas Brothers, and if you hobnob with them enough (believe me, it's never enough), you eventually start up a professional relationship.
Aside from giving me a shout-out, the guys talked about their tour and their album, but they also talked about some other stuff.
Back in January, Nick Jonas teased JoBros fans everywhere when he hinted that it was a possibility that maybe one day the boys would start their own clothing line.
Well, it turns out he wasn't teasing. Starting this fall, the JoBros’ clothes will be coming to a mall near you. Women's Wear Daily reports that there will be a "full sportswear line for tweens, hitting mass retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears and JCPenney in time for back-to-school shopping." The line is described as "preppy clothing seen on the show." Read More...
When Miley Cyrus sat down to write her new autobiography, "Miles to Go" (if the megastar ever actually takes the time to sit in one place these days), she made a decision to include some info on her breakup with Jonas Brother number three, Nick Jonas. She calls him "Prince Charming" in the book (um, I think feel a cavity forming). "I would say that it was hard, but it was also the best thing I ever did," she told MTV News.
Right on, girl! Bonus points for putting your heart out there in the book. So Miley clearly has a favorite JoBro. Or, uh, used to.
Suddenly the MTV Newsroom was debating the relative merits of each Jonas Brother and who deserved to be her (or anyone's) "favorite." Seriously. After we argued for a while, we decided to let the true experts — you, the fans — decide.
So cast your vote now in our non-binding, non-scientific, ultra-important poll.
FROM BUZZWORTHY.MTV.COM: In the year 2008 alone, the Jonas Brothers did more in 365 days than 365 people do in 365 years. There were their "Look Me In The Eyes" and "Burning Up" tours. The release of Camp Rock and A Little Bit Longer. They even let us hang out with them for two (exhausting) days straight during MTV's "Jonas Brothers: Live & Mobile" event. There were those billion and six awards shows, including the VMAs. TV appearances like FNMTV. Their Burning Up book. Public appearances. More appearances in places that require appearing at, which require travel and getting up early. And those Jonas Brothers videos -- they shot "Burnin' Up," "Lovebug" and "Tonight" in 2008 alone -- don't just make themselves.

Like any siblings, the Jonas Brothers fight. And by fight, we mean they physically abuse each other to the point that they have battle scars on their bodies to prove it.
How do we know this? Well, the guys told us all about. See, it appears that when they aren't busy singing, acting and being teen idols, they are fighting each other. Well, at least Kevin and Joe are.
