Though Jonas is quite young, he is in fact a Broadway veteran with previous roles in Annie Get Your Gun, Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables. He also starred in a production of Les Miserables in London last year, and a performance of Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles earlier this year.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
