After the 2008 MTV VMAs (which was boring by the way) host Russell Brand took a shot at the Jonas Brothers for their purity rings, the teen sensations were asked about it by the BBC. Nick Jonas said, “For us it’s cool to see that he recognizes we are gentleman.” Brand also apologized to the trio after the remarks after the event. Kevin also added, “We had a lot of friends there and everybody’s so nice. We had a good time!” Despite the verbal jabs, Nick complimented Brand on his hosting job saying, “I think he did a good job. We saw him on Conan O’Brien and thought he was hilarious.” The Jonas Brothers were good sports all together, Jordin Sparks and Paris Hilton stood up for them, but the media is making it as if Jordin is 'retailtating' towards Russell and she just said it was respectable for the Brothers to stand up for what belive in. Paris said, "I don’t pick on them. That’s something cool for a kid to keep, so don’t pick on them for that." to US Weekly. And besides, Russell wasn't making fun that they were virigins, just saying how ironic it was that how many tail they could be getting if they are rock stars.
