What Danielle Jonas Says About Appearing in the Jonas Brothers’ ‘Sucker’ Video
The Jonas Brothers are relishing the success of their “Happiness Begins” album and tour, with their songs still topping the charts. Their hit “Sucker” kicked off the bro band’s return to the spotlight, with a music video featuring the brothers along with their wives. While Kevin Jonas’ wife Danielle may not usually appear in the limelight, she made quite an impressive splash for her role in the video.
The ladies stole the show
Along with Danielle, Priyanka Chopra (Nick’s wife), and Sophie Turner (Joe’s wife) also appeared in the mega-viewed popular video that launched in February. According to People, the “Sucker” video reached over 200 million views to date and earned four nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards, winning for best pop song.
Despite not winning Video of the Year, Nick gave credit to the wives for the success of the short and said they would be the ones to get the award had they won. “The ladies have to go up and accept it on our behalf, because they absolutely stole the show,” Nick revealed.
The youngest Jonas shared that their wives represented a major reason for their current success. “We knew that context needed to be given about where we are now. And I think the biggest piece of that puzzle is those three incredible women who stand by our side,” Nick said, according to Cigar Aficionado. “And they stole the show in our video.”
Kevin was so proud of Danielle’s performance in the video, he decided to permanently declare his adoration – in ink. Posting a pic of the tattoo that mirrors Danielle’s appearance in the video, Kevin captioned the image with a tribute to his wife.
While Danielle clearly appreciated the gesture, she did note Kevin’s current penchant for getting inked. “He’s getting carried away with the tattoos,” Danielle joked, according to Page Six, sharing that his tattoos are his way of commemorating major milestones.
Chopra and Turner, both well-known actresses, are familiar with performing for the cameras. For Danielle, her first onscreen role was both flattering and a bit anxiety-provoking, but she received the support she needed.
“I was honored,” she said of starring in the “Sucker” video. “It was nerve-wracking because I’m just shy; I don’t do that stuff. Pri and Sophie are out in the public and they do movies. I was so nervous about standing next to them but everyone was so sweet to me and encouraging.”
Though Danielle may not be in the limelight as much as her sisters-in law, she is no stranger to success. Owning her own namesake jewelry line, she recently launched a “New Beginnings” collection comprised of opals. The entrepreneur revealed that opal is her daughter Valentina’s birthstone as well as a symbol of a fresh start, which seems perfectly timed for their current phase of life.
“The whole opal line is that feeling for me: the start of Kevin’s new beginning and Alena (her oldest daughter) starting school and our whole lives being turned upside down a little in a good way,” Danielle shared.
Danielle revealed that she has always had a passion for jewelry, which made creating her business a labor love. “Jewelry was always an interest of mine,” she recently told Forbes. “I went with jewelry because of my consistent efforts of searching for the perfect pieces whether it was for myself or for someone special in my life. I’m very sentimental and I feel jewelry is the best creation of a keepsake that can be worn every day.”
In business and on screen, Danielle is clearly a success in her own right.
