Pizza Girl Lyrics:
Showed up
At my door
Might sound cheesy
But I wanted

I fell in love with the pizza girl,
Now I eat pizza every day.
I fell in love with the pizza girl,
Now I eat pizza every day.

Was stuck
in a box
for so long
I see
that the pizza girl
she’s the one for me

I fell in love with the pizza girl,
Now I eat pizza every day
I feel in love with the pizza girl,
Now I eat pizza
Now I eat pizza
Now I eat pizza every day

Music sensations the Jonas Brothers have a new series (May 2 premier) on the Disney Channel. Simply called JONAS, it’s a super-charming comedy that has Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas playing the fictional Lucas Brothers who are rock and roll superstars trying to deal with the pressure of the business.

Unpredictable and often absurd situations are created as they try to live ordinary lives, just like the Jonas boys.

In the real world, Kevin says the crazy, stressed out situations that their TV characters go through for big laughs on the half-hour show, are not too much a part of the life he leads. “We have an amazing team around us. We’re just like normal guys. We like to hang out with friends. We go shopping. We go see movies. But we just work a lot at the same time, but we love it.”

The show combines two main ingredients for a successful Disney show– music and comedy, not to mention great stars. “Our cast is incredible,” Kevin says, giving credit to costars Chelsea Staub (Minutemen), Nicole Anderson (Hannah Montana), John Ducey (Will and Grace), and Rebecca Creskoff (Mad Men).

Joe reveals, “Going into it, we were pretty nervous. We weren’t sure how we would do. We did Camp Rock (the Disney Channel TV movie), but doing a television series, we didn’t know exactly how it would roll out. It’s been a lot of fun. And it’s just a great opportunity so far.”

The famous brothers are happy that their little brother Frankie will also be featured on the show. “It’s cool for him. We didn’t know how he would do, and he’s been surprising us every day with how well he does.”

Word on the set is that eight-year-old Frankie is known as “the bonus Jonas.”

Of course, fans know that all the Jonas boys started young. Nick and Joe were on Broadway before they ever created their family band with Kevin. Nick says, “Joe and I were on Broadway. I can remember being in Annie Get Your Gun, and I forgot my cue to go onstage.” Nick recalls the star of the musical, Reba McEntire took it in stride and told him “That’s why they call it live.”

The Jonas Brothers will continue to do live concerts when they can, because that’s still part of living their dreams.

Joe says, “We’re so used to doing music, that this gives us a great opportunity to have acting and music involved. It’s an easy transition for us because we’re natural musicians. But acting is something that’s totally different for us.”

They will still be recording too. “I think we found a real home with Hollywood Records and our partnership with Disney. It just feels right. And we’re having a great time with everything,” reports Nick.

The JONAS main title theme song is “Live to Party,” written and recorded by the Jonas Brothers. The episodes will also features original Jonas Brothers songs created especially for the show. That’s something else that Nick loves about the experience. “Writing songs for the show has been a really cool experience because they’ll give us kind of like an outline of what they need for the episode,” Nick explains. “And we’ve been joking now that we don’t have to get our hearts broken to write a song about heartbreak It’s a lot easier way to do it.”

Joe says, “it’s really cool because when we co-wrote with Demi (Lavato from Camp Rock) on her record, it was a different kind of feel because we had to think from a girl’s perspective. And that was the first time we ever had to do that.”

Joe thinks it’s great to have the opportunity to have the creative team behind the show tell him they need a song “about a situation that you like this person, but you kind of feel sick about it. So they’ll get us to really think about it and come up with a song. It’s great to keep us involved in that aspect. And it’s been a lot of fun.”

Gary Marsh, president of entertainment for Disney Channels Worldwide, says, “The true test of artists is their willingness to stretch creatively, to tackle new challenges. The Jonas Brothers, already established as music superstars, have don just that with JONAS, by stretching beyond their established comfort zone into the world of television comedy. And what makes them great performers on the stage, their talent for relating to and connecting with their audience, serves them perfectly as comedic actors.”

That’s just how they roll.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Pop music stars The Jonas Brothers — Kevin, Joe and Nick — are about to become TV stars.

Not that TV is new territory for them. Disney Channel is largely responsible for their success — through music videos and an appearance in last summer’s “Camp Rock” — so it makes sense that the cable network will be the home of their first weekly TV series, “JONAS” (8 p.m. Saturday).

In the program, the brothers play a fictional fraternal rock band just trying to live normal lives despite their fame. Their TV characters have the same first names, but their last name is Lucas. Executive producer Michael Curtis said the band is called JONAS because in the show the boys live on Jonas Street

“We’ve tried to create a fusion of a sitcom and a music video and use original Jonas Brothers songs as the foundation to glue it together,” said Gary Marsh, entertainment president of Disney Channels Worldwide.

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour in January, Marsh described “JONAS” as a cross between “The Monkees” and “Flight of the Conchords;” producers compared the show to The Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night.”

During one rainy beach trip, the brothers watched episodes of “The Monkees” and “The Partridge Family,” so they had some idea of what to expect from “JONAS.”

“I think for us, we were excited to incorporate our music into this process,” Kevin Jonas said. “It adds a whole other element for us. That’s where our passion is in our hearts.”

The littlest “bonus Jonas,” Frankie, will also appear along with their real-life head of security, Big Rob Feggans, who plays a similar role in the fictional universe of “JONAS.”

The show’s original concept had the brothers playing spies.

“Their cover was blown by Dick Cheney,” executive producer Curtis joked. “The spy concept was very big and very ambitious and it started to not feel quite right. As the band got bigger and bigger, doing a show that captured more of their real lives and trying to turn that into a more grounded, real version of what they might be doing became more interesting to do and more fun to do.”

During the Disney Channel press conference in January, Nick was the quickest to answer questions on behalf of the brothers. He also said he’s had the most difficult time transitioning to acting.

“I’m kind of a perfectionist. I’m very hard on myself when it comes to the acting,” Nick said, adding that it’s been difficult to translate his own personality to the TV character that’s loosely based on him. “In real life I have a very dry sense of humor and sometimes I can’t master that on camera. I’m still learning.”

As for how they keep grounded, the brothers said they could go wild and trash their guitars on stage but then “it would be on YouTube,” Joe said.

The Internet is clearly on their minds when they were asked about rumors that surface, like the notion that one of the brothers might go solo.

“I don’t think so,” Joe said, looking at his brothers, “unless one of you guys wants to lay it out here.”

“Rumors are always out there,” Kevin said. “I just joined a wrestling club in Asia is a new one.”

“Are you serious?” Joe joked. “That’s just awesome.”

“You just roll with it,” Kevin said. “You know who you are and what’s true and you just laugh about it.”

“Sometimes comedians will make jokes about you at an awards show,” Joe said, referring to Russell Brand at the MTV Video Music Awards last year, “and you have to laugh it off because that’s their job. It’s kind of flattering. It’s like, wow, they used me as their prop.”
