Nick Jonas isn’t planning on resting on his pop-star laurels. The 16-year-old is already looking at what he might do next, now that he has conquered music, TV and movies. So, one day in the distant future, college does seem like the likely next step for this Jonas brother.
He was recently rumored to have been checking out Northwestern University and on Wednesday (June 15) he confirmed to MTV News that he had in fact stopped by the school’s Chicago campus. However, he was quick to point out that he’s not planning on ditching his band or his current job as heartthrob for academia anytime soon.
“I did go see the college just to go check it out. I’ve always been interested in going to school in Chicago. I love Chicago,” he said. “It’s one of my favorite cities. And it was great just to see it. And that’s where it’s at right now.” He added that “it’ll be a while before I end up going anyway, because we’re obviously very busy — but that’s about where we left it off.”
Nick, who graduated from high school in June, hadn’t yet celebrated the big milestone when MTV News last spoke with him. So had the boys done anything for their little brother since then? “We had an all-around party,” Nick said, speaking of the party celebrating his graduation, the brothers’ mother’s birthday and their album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, topping the charts. “We had a party at the beginning of the tour.”
