Thanksgiving Day, Demi, 2010, Miley, Brothers, Etc.

Hello everyone!
A LOT of people has asked me to post this for a long time, so I am. As you all know I have been VERY so busy. But my thanksgiving was amazing. I got to spend my time with my beautiful family, and it was just amazing being able to hug my mom and eat her delicious food. I got to play wiffle with my dad and Frankie. Caught up with them a little bit. I ate pretty much.. everything edible in existence. Turkey, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, salad, corn with cheese, spaghetti, and we even had dessert which consisted of pumpkin pie, and chocolate cake. Yum! Wanna know my secret to fit everything into my stomach? I unbuttoned my pants while eating.. you can imagine the size of my stomach haha. Of course I was very careful with my sugar levels and kept inject insulin every time I needed it, because I can't be eating like a maniac and forget all about it.
We sat in the living room and talked and sang a few songs with our guitars. It was rad, I loved spending time with my family.

Tour was insane. We got to go to crazy places that we hadn't been in before! We even went to Abu Dahbi for a concert and interviews, and it was completely amazing. So surreal, I had never been there in my life. First time was awesome. We also went to Brazil and met Ronaldo! The number one soccer player in Brazil, it was really awesome. He actually gave us pretty sweet jerseys, and we got to play a soccer match (of course we lost) against his team. We went to Argentina, Costa Rica, Colombia, Mexico, a BUNCH of places we love to go while on tour. We Zip-Lining in Costa Rica. So much fun! we went rock climbing, we tried crazy food and of course we got to spend some time with fans all over South America AND USA. We DID cut the tour short, because we planned this tour to be WITH Demi, so we couldn't release the rest of the dates we had planned. We just couldn't do the shows without her anymore. But it was still so much fun, and we can't wait to go back on the road.

A lot of people has been asking about Demi and how she is. Demi is doing so much better now, actually. Of course she still has to rest up some, and calm down for a while. But she's doing a lot better now, which makes us all very happy. Thanks to EVERYONE that has been so kind sending "Get Better"s and "We love you"s to Demi. She really needs as much support and love as she can get.

Man this has been one INSANE year. As you all know I had been going to the studio with friends, recording a bit of R&B music for them, and of course doing some recording of my own. I'm exploring, and meshing up music. Joe's been working on some music himself, and he can't wait to show you what he's done. What I've listened to so far it's REALLY awesome. I know you guys will like it. As well as he's been doing some acting, too, and has done it quite well as well.

I worked on Les Miserables as Marius Pontmercy, it was amazing. Such a blessing to be able to be a part of the huge family. It was honestly SUCH an honor for me to be able to do that, and having people react so well to it. I also got to meet some amazing people like Camilla Kerslake, Lucie Jones, Samantha Barks, etc. It was truly amazing to be a part of the 50th year anniversary of Les Mis and I hope I did some justice to it. I grew up doing Broadway, and doing it again was just... wow. I'm so thankful.

2010 has been intense for sure, I can't believe it's gonna be over soon. I was turning 18 a few days ago, and now it's almost Christmas and New Years. It's so crazy, and it's really been wow. We did Camp Rock 2, which was a success by the way, The World Tour, Joe starring on shows, J.O.N.A.S. ended, I did Les Miserables, and wow. It's just been non-stop.

As we all know Demi Lovato isn't the only one that's had her rough patch, one of my best friends; Miley Cyrus as well has had her downs this year, but she's still as strong and beautiful as ever. She just tured 18-years-old a few days ago. I'm so bummed I couldn't be with her during that special day, but I was there in spirit and I promised to make it up to her next year. I'll be next to her, and give her a special dance for her 19th birthday. But I just wanted to dedicate this little piece of my blog to tell her that she's truly special, and she's blessed me and my brothers with her presence so many times. We love her to pieces, and we hope she liked her gift. We also know she had a rough patch with certain dude, cough whowefindtobeacompletedouche cough, but she knows now that she's worth a LOT more than being sad about it. She's accomplished some great things this year, and we're really proud of her. She's grown to be such a beautiful woman, and we just wish her the best of the best. I wish her the best of the best, I love her so much and I hope she knows that she's always in my heart and in my mind. She's now a beautiful and successful young woman, and I'm so proud of her.

To all of you giving me a hard time about it, CHILL OUT! I didn't mean not to be with her, at all. I did talk to her for hours on the phone, and we got to catch up. We're on great terms.

Also, just a reminder that NO I don't have "personal" twitters, myspaces, or facebook. I only have,,, and NOTHING else. Those are hard enough to handle. And I have which was introduced to me by none other than beautiful Miley Cyrus aka

That is all! I hope everyone had a rocking thanksgiving and have awesome holidays!

Love you all,

  1. Wow! What a detailed post! Your Thanksgiving "food-scarfing" method is just hilarious....but, it probably is the most reasonable way to approach a table that's overflowing with deliciousness. ;) Somehow I rationalized it to be more okay to splurge on leftovers today (versus at dinner last night) I just switched to my pajamas--now I can indulge to my heart's content! LOL. What I'm curious to know, is how spaghetti entered the menu?

    It's so great that you got to spend more time with your mama. Tight hugs and love from a mama are just the best when life is going a million miles an hour. Mom's just have this crazy intuition with how to make us smile really big, and feel a huge sense of comfort. Love from a mama is simply a treasure! (And hello, homemade food is heaven).

    It's awesome that you're back having fun in the studio. I wouldn't have the first clue about how to craft a melody, but it's incredible that you & your friends have that skill. I hope you're overwhelmed (in the best way) with inspiration and creativity....and if ever inspiration lacks, sounds like all you need is a mental vacation to London. LOL ;) A yummy cup of tea and a good British flick should do the trick. :)

    Hope your time home is amazing--it's definitely been a long time coming! Also, glad to know you lived through Black never knows if everyone will make it out of that mayhem alive! Hahaha!

    P.S. Cool verse at the end. I'm watching How to Train Your Dragon with my little bro right now, and seeing a verse from Revelation in the midst of watching these fire-dragon wars...well, it was kinda funny. It IS an awesome verse though. :)

    Thanks for the debriefing. (lol) Have a blast in the studio!

  2. Hey Nick,
    I see we had the game plan on Thanksgiving. I also ate everything in sight, but I had the foresight to wear loose pants. Haha. And it's nice to hear that diabetes doesn't stand in the way of Thanksgiving gluttony. :)

    You have had quite a year, one to be proud of. I'm looking forward to hearing this new music you're working on, especially now that I know what a beat lab is!! You've traveled a lot and done a lot. After seeing those hilarious pictures of you zip lining, I want to try that! I think zip lining looks incredible.

    I'm so happy to hear that Demi is doing better. I'm not sure exactly what she's going through, and it's def. NOT MY BUSINESS. I just hope she takes away from all of it a sense of what's really important. She's so insanely talented. I wish her all the best. I hope she has a hint of how much people care about her.

    As for Miley, you don't have to convince me what a talented, beautiful person she is. Miley rocks. Period. End of story. I'm SURE you will be the friend she needs and help her out in her tough times. There's a quote I heard from her (I'm pretty sure it's her dad's quote) that is one of a few I have taped to my computer. "A trying time is no time to quit trying." I look at that, and my other quotes, every single day.

    That picture your mom tweeted was very cute. I'm glad you got to hang with them for a bit.

    Well have a good night. :) Tena
