‘Sucker’ Punch: The Behind-the-Scenes Players to Launch Jonas Brothers’ First No. 1

Read on: Variety.

America is collectively a sucker for the Jonas Brothers again — or at least that’s the strong indication from first-week results for their comeback, a full decade after the trio last had a top 30 single. “Sucker” just became their first song ever to to…

Jonas Brothers All Miserably Fail Lie Detector Tests on ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

With an SUV full of Jonas Brothers, James Corden can definitely use the carpool lane.

On Thursday night’s “Carpool Karaoke,” Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas reunited in the “Late Late Show” Range Rover, where the boys — and Corden — sung their hits and shot the breeze.

At one point, the trio got wired up for lie detector tests. What came out is probably not going to help the band — or the family, for that matter.

Apparently, Nick was definitely the one at fault for breaking up the group, and Kevin has really, really wanted to punch him over that. Oh, and at least one of their wives gets on Joe’s last nerve.

Easter is gonna be awesome.

A little later in the segment, Nick masterfully deflects the Disney Channel censorship question. Man that kid’s been coached up — the family friendly company’s current child stars could learn a thing or two from the “Jealous” singer.

And yes, they got to the purity rings. Remember those? The Jonas Brothers have been trying to forget them since their teenage years.

Watch the video above.

The brothers have been taking up residence on the CBS late (late) night show all week to celebrate their reunion and promote their upcoming Amazon documentary.

The Jonas Brothers are back, baby! And some are more prepared than others.

On Monday’s “Late Late Show,” where Nick, Kevin and Joe Jonas will be taking residence this week, the boys-turned-men shared the story of how the band got back together and how they kept it a secret — especially from will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.

Nick and Kevin also ratted on Joe for being the Jonas who always forgets his lyrics. It’s so bad that Joe actually uses a teleprompter on stage — for real. To be fair, he’s also got that DNCE stuff bouncing around in his head.

“It’s very helpful,” Joe told James Corden. We bet.

Sophie Turner Condemns ‘Game of Thrones’ Meme Made to ‘Promote Racism’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Sansa Stark is not here for your racist comments. “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner quote tweeted and condemned a meme of her in character that advocates “Purity In Race and Culture.”

“Ew. Don’t use me to promote racism,” the actress tweeted Saturday.

The meme in question had a picture of Turner dressed as Sansa Stark from HBO’s “Game of Thrones” with a caption that warned against “race mixing.”

“White people are the product of 50,000 years of evolution. Do not destroy our genetic legacy by race mixing,” the meme said. “Do it right! Date and marry white!”

Turner doesn’t frequent Twitter, but when she does, she usually speaks her mind. Earlier this month, she put out a thread explaining her reasons against joking about mental illness and reached out to people who need help. And in December, she condemned a since deleted article and tweet from The Cut that wrote that Priyanka Chopra was a “global scam artist” and had tricked Nick Jonas into marrying her. Turner is engaged to Joe Jonas, and the two will be future sisters-in-law.

“Game of Thrones” returns for its eighth and final season on HBO on April 14. See Turner’s tweet below:

Ew. Please don’t use me to promote racism. https://t.co/u2bftRCbXy

NY Mag’s The Cut Pulls Story Calling Priyanka Chopra ‘Scam Artist’ and Her Marriage to Nick Jonas ‘Fake’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

New York Magazine apologized on Wednesday for an article which bluntly called Indian actress Priyanka Chopra a “scam artist” just days after her lavish wedding to Nick Jonas.

“Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize,” the outlet said in a brief statement after taking down the whole article.

The original article — which you can read here — from The Cut’s Mariah Smith asserted that Chopra was a “modern day scam artist” who had ensnared Jonas into a “fraudulent relationship against his will.”

“Nick, if you’re reading this, find that horse and gallop away as fast as you can!” Smith implored.

The magazine originally tried to remove the most offensive parts of the piece in an update before eventually electing to simply retract the article entirely.

The original piece was scrubbed before the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine could capture it, but it lives on in Indian media, which first flagged the article.

A rep for New York Magazine declined to offer anything further.

Chopra, a Bollywood star who managed to cross over into the U.S. with a breakout role in the ABC drama “Quantico,” married the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers in a traditional Hindu ceremony on Sunday.

We’ve fawned over “Bennifer,” been won over by “Bragelina” and scratched our heads over “Kimye.” Now, everyone welcome “Prick.”

Yes, “Prick.” That’s, apparently, the new celebrity couple name for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who announced they were engaged in July.

During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Jonas said “She likes ‘Prick.’ I don’t like that one very much,” after Chopra yelled the nickname from off stage.

The couple was introduced by mutual friends and texted back and forth for roughly six months before the two met in person. They remained friends focusing on their careers. They attended the Met Ball together in 2017 while fielding questions from friends and the media as to whether they were dating, Jonas told Fallon. They played coy, he said.

But when they hung out about five months ago, the connection was immediate Jonas said.

“We just knew it was right and jumped right in and we’re very happy,” Jonas said.
