Joe Jonas is pursuing his DJ career

In dance music today, it has become a pattern within this new music obsession for previously established celebrities to find their musical calling and try to enter the scene through DJing. Notable figures who’ve been known to try their hand at the art include Paris Hilton, Shaquille O’Neil, Elijah Wood, Hodor (Kristian Nairn), and Justin Bieber.

Now, another celebrity has joined the roster: Joe Jonas. Formerly known as a member of the boy band Jonas Brothers, the pop star has apparently been DJing for nearly two years now. Says Jonas of his passion: “It’s always been something that’s been a fun pastime… Something I would do when I had parties at home, and then turned into something a bit bigger. I have friends in the nightclub industry. I would get invited to DJ at their parties, and it went well. It’s a great thing to be able to do while I’m working on music.” Beginning his career in Vegas, Jonas eventually earned a residency during Lollapalooza at the Chicago Hard Rock Hotel. Now, he’s making his way to Miami to play a club event.

Though Jonas might be hitting the decks soon, the celebrity (thankfully) isn’t taking the side career too seriously. “I’m no Avicii or Tiësto, but I enjoy it,” he said. “I have fun.”
