{YouTube Tuesday} Nick Jonas

by Leighann on December 6, 2011

Last week I shared two videos of Jay Cutler. This week I have two similar videos of Nick Jonas, both his PSA for the American Diabetes Association’s Stop Diabetes campaign and his interview with Larry King.

What a lovely young man! I am 44, live in the UK and spend my days with a five year old. Um, who is Nick Jonas? I have no idea! Like him a lot though!

Jules-

Nick Jonas is a famous pop singer and Disney TV star adored by teens and tweens in the US. As the video shares, he was diagnosed at 13 just as his career has taken off.

Here’s a link to a chat I had with his mom Denise Jonas. http://www.d-mom.com/chatting-with-celeb-d-mom-denise-jonas/

And here’s a video that is so positive, but makes me cry every time! http://www.d-mom.com/who-she-is/

The family’s celebrity has certainly brought awareness to type 1 diabetes among this generation.

We’ve never been fans of the Jonas Brothers’ music, but now I’m won over by this guy. I had my 8-yr-old sitting here watching with me, and Larry King’s nice little “How about blindness?” certainly prompted discussion. I guess it was time…though not a fun thing to talk about. I ended up saying that none of us are guaranteed perfect health no matter what measures we take, and that we can only do what we can and trust that all will work out for good.

Sorry Amy, I should have warned you!

I have tried to shield Q from the knowledge that there could be complications because I don’t think it’s a burden she needs to have at this age. But when she does ask questions about possible negative outcomes, I always tell her that we should do our best to take care of ourselves and be healthy.

I’m not big on their music either (maybe because I’m 40, lol!), but I thought he was so well-spoken and poised in this interview and really told it like it is. Q pretends to faint when she sees him! I guess she’s the target audience 🙂

Pretending…to be a tween! I love it.

No worries about the lack of warning…I figure these things come up when they do for a reason. It was good, in some ways, to have the subject turn up the way it did.
