It looks like Joe Jonas is a single man!
The 24-year-old (who turns 25 in 10 days) has split from longtime girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler according to US Weekly. The pair had been dating for almost 2 years (aka 20 months) and a rep tells US Weekly, “Joe and Blanda have mutually decided to part ways. The split was amicable and the two remain friends, with great respect for one another.”
The two had become a frequent target of the paparazzi so when they hadn’t been spotted out and about together recently, it seemed like trouble. Joe and Blanda were last spotted out June 19 at the Cadillac & Refinery29 party where an observer told US Weekly that there appeared to be tension between the two. “He posed for photos by himself and then stormed inside.”
It looks like Joe is handling the breakup well. He just had a blast with friends at Lollapalooza over the weekend. So what’s next for Joe? More DJ’ing?
Joe chatted with Vh1 at Lollapalooza about DJing and more. Check out some highlights:
What does DJing allow you to do as a solo artist that you didn’t get to do as a Jonas Brother?
It’s fun to showcase the music that I love. It’s nice for a crowd like this because everyone’s going to a music festival not for one artist, they’re going for hundreds. You feel comfortable playing whatever you want and that’s kind of what I do. It’s an open format. I don’t necessarily stick to one style of music, like trap or house or whatever. I kind of go all over the map, which might be confusing to some but I think I’ll work with the crowd enough to make it make sense. And in situations like this where everyone is drunk and happy it goes over well.
And it sounds like you’re more than a celebrity DJ. You’re not plugging in an iPod and pressing play.
Right. [Laughs] Yeah, I really enjoy doing it. I love mixing. My friend was like, “Are you really going to be DJing?” And I said, “You can stand behind me the whole time and tell me if I’m really doing it.” I’m no Avicii but I really just have a good time with it and learning from friends. I think as musicians we pick it up pretty quick because it’s all tempos, it’s all timing, and it’s a taste in music and knowing what an audience would like. If you’re good with that, you can kill it.
What would be your ultimate Chicago-style pizza?
I like Hawaiian pizza so that’s always a good one. I think meat lovers really well done and then I’m good. I’m satisfied.
