The Jonas Brothers Address Gay Rumors, Praise Miley Cyrus as "Very Smart"

by at .  Updated at .

The Jonas Brothers are handsome, well-dressed, good dancers and solid singers.

But that doesn't mean Nick, Kevin and Joe make like Michelle Rodriguez. They only swing one way, the boy band members tell the latest issue of Out.

“We have a lot of gay friends and gay fans. It’s a boy band stereotype; people assume, but we don’t take offense," Joe tells the publication of the chatter, while Nick adds:

“Prior to us being a band, I was a super theater geek. I loved theater and I still do, and I care about fashion, and I care about a lot of things that I feel like stereotypes are attached to.”

The siblings are touch on something even more controversial than their sexuality: Miley Cyrus and her recent raunchy antics.

Asked about the singer's infamous VMA routine, Joe admitted: “It wasn’t my favorite performance of hers. I think that there’s one way of saying you’ve grown up, and there’s another way - I think that’s her way.”

Still... Cyrus has a number-one single. Her album is expected to sit atop the charts when it goes on sale next week.

“She’s smart," Nick says of his ex-girlfriend. "She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her. She’ll always be successful. [The performance] was funny - I was laughing.”

As for their own upcoming album? Kevin hopes people will keep their minds open:

“We have a lot of people hearing new stuff, and maybe they have had misconceptions in the past of who we are as a band. At the end of the day, I think people are surprised to know that we’re a rock band at our core.”
