As David Archuleta might say, gosh. It is no doubt hard enough for Nick Jonas to be an internationally famous teenage rock star — how bad must it suck for him to have his mother going around leaking news? “Nick is working on a solo act — it’s called Nick Jonas and The Administration. Shhh! He’s at the photo shoot for the album cover right now,” Denise Jonas told Way to go, mom!

An insider confirmed to that this is just a side project for Nick, and that the Jonas Brothers are definitely not breaking up — they’re on stage in South America as we speak. We’ll update with further details on the album as they’re available. In the meantime, Mixers, who’s excited? What do we think this will sound like? And how do we feel about the parent-as-inadvertent-publicist model?
