Nick Jonas is going it alone. The youngest of the group, Nick, 17, has announced five concert dates with his side project, Nick Jonas & The Administration. Tickets for the concerts, which will be performed in more “intimate” venues than where The Jonas Brother performed, will go on sale Saturday. Dates for the show are as followed: Dallas (Jan. 2), Nashville (Jan 4), Washington, D.C. (Jan. 6), New York City (Jan. 7) and Chicago (Jan. 17). Usmagazine reports that Jonas will be singing songs off of the group’s upcoming album Who I Am, which will come out February 2nd.
This does not mean the Jonas Brothers are breaking up. Nick took to his MySpace blog and had this to say, “We’ve said from the beginning of our career as the Jonas Brothers that anything we do outside of the group is a side project because you can’t break up brothers. My brothers are my biggest supporters, and were on the phone with me every day while I was in the studio asking how it was going, and telling me they couldn’t wait to hear the record.”
Nick Jonas & The Administration will make their performance debut at Wednesday’s Grammy Nomination Concert, airing live at 9p.m./ET on CBS.

Ah, finally some Miley Cyrus news that I can agree with. Sixteen year old Miley has been named the 2009 Worst Celebrity Influence. To make it worse for Miss Miley, this was not a poll taken by adults that would be turned off by her choices, outfits, and dance moves. No, no, this poll is strictly for tweens- kids between the ages of 9-15. So why is her fan base suddenly turning against her? Why did 42% vote for Miley Cyrus, while Britney Spears only received 27% and Kayne West 19% of votes? My take would be that Brittney and Kayne don’t claim to be role models for tweens. They are adults; they make mature videos, sing about mature topics, that’s what adults do. But why is a sixteen year old dancing on a pole and making a music video where viewers can almost completely see up her shorts? I can only hope that people are realizing what a mess Miley Cyrus is, and can only imagine it is going to get worse before getting any better. I agree completely with this poll, taking by JSYK.com (Just So You Know), an AOL pop culture blog.
On the other side of the poll, Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson, and Justin Bieber were named “Best Celeb Influence.” Way to go kids.
