Nick Jonas: Brian, “Very Funny” (NOT!)

A Miley Cyrus question? Two! Fox & Fans co-anchor and former stand-up comic Brian Kilmeade did not fully amuse Nick Jonas this morning. In an interview of the Jonas Brothers (Nick, Joe, and Kevin) before their appearance at the White House tonight in a tribute to Paul McCartney, Brian served up mainly softballs to the boys. However, toward the end of the discussion, Brian got a bit personal with Nick.

After questioning all three brothers about their performance in front of the President and Sir Paul, Brian remarked, “Nick…what is your take on your ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus writing a song and using your relationship as inspiration.”* (Miley recently revealed that her new song “Full Circle” was based on her relationship with her former flame Nick.) Taking his left hand out of his pants pocket and wiping his brow, Nick coolly responded, “Miley is a good friend and has been now for a long time so I think that our relationship now is friends and that’s what’s important. And, it’s good to see that we both can express ourselves through music.”

Ever the wicked wit, Brian persisted, “Right. Do you think she should cut you in on the profits?” After a pregnant pause, Nick, with almost clenched teeth hidden in a smile, retorted, “Very funny!” With co-host Steve Doocy laughing in the background, a grinning Brian riposted, “I guess I’ll take that as a ‘no.’ So, fine.”

Nick should count himself lucky, though: he got off relatively easy. As long-time Fox & Friends fans know, Brian has a knack for getting under the skin of certain celebs. Examples include such notables as KISS’ Gene Simmons (“Make Out with Clarinet Players”), country star Trace Adkins (“Such an Idiot”), and comedienne Janeane Garofalo (“Saddam Must Love You”). Even if Brian was not “very funny” to Nick, he was rather entertaining to his audience.

    I saw the exchange….very awkward at the least. Brian is funny, but that was weird.

    Kilmeade is far from funny,he is a terrible interviewer. He was responsible for E.D. Hill being kicked off F&F.and I guess he got rid of the Judge on the radio show. He seems to like Hollywood maybe he can trade jobs with Courtney Freil.
