Oprah had the Jonas Brothers on her show the other day. Apparently they are quite popular with the teenyboppers.
I was curious, so I dug in and checked it out.
Much like the Hanson brothers of a few years back, they are a group of three sibs making the youngin' set squeal with pre-pubescent delight.
Also like the Hansons is the fact that the oldest one is the ugliest, the middle one is hot, and the youngest one is...the youngest one and only 15, so I'm not going to go there.
They had their parents on to discuss how they keep the boys "so grounded".
The answer was soooo predictable: Their faith.
The boys are 15, 18, and 20. Granted their main demographic shouldn't even be thinking about what's going on in their tingly bits, don't tell me there aren't a league of older sister types (and maybe a few pervy Moms) who would be more than willing to help the boys "relax after the show".
When I was in high school, there were these two senior girls who were obsessed with New Kids on the Block. The funniest part was that they were goth chicks. They went so far as to follow the boys on a summer tour one year. I heard they staked out a Boston hotel for hours, but didn't get an invite up. They blamed it on tight security. I just think it was because they were ugly.
My point is, there are plenty of older, of legal age women willing to be groupies for boy band members.
It's nice that Mr. and Mrs. Jonas (and what a lovely biblical last name they have. It was probably changed from Jonaskovitch or something) can sit on Oprah's stage and spout about how "faithful" their boys are, but who are they trying to kid?
"Oh no no random co-ed I'll never see again, please don't put my penis in your mouth. I know I am exploding with hormones, but Jesus would be very disappointed with me."
Call me cynical, but I ain't buyin' it.
