Kevin Jonas, the 21-year-old heartthrob of pop sensation the Jonas Brothers, said he’s looking forward to returning to the District in July for a concert on his third tour, and that the “super sweet and poised” Obama daughters have an open invitation to join them at the Verizon Center.

“We love the whole history here,” Mr. Jonas told The Washington Times. “The last time we took a bus tour and saw all the monuments, like the Lincoln Memorial.”

The brothers also got a special tour of Washington’s most famous residence when they were invited to a scavenger hunt with Malia and Sasha Obama. The favorite song of the president’s daughters? “Burnin’ Up.”

Mr. Jonas said he’s relishing his new power as a young voter and explains that his top two political issues of importance are the economy (ticket prices for the concerts will be scaled to accommodate financial strains) and the environment (he said he likes to tool around in his hybrid).

Mr. Jonas, who was raised an evangelical Christian, said he is open to all parties and candidates and does not identify with political labels.

“We believe what we believe. We don’t look at politics, we look at the person,” he said.

As for those pesky purity rings, Mr. Jonas — named one of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive last year — said, “I have always thought of that as a personal decision. That is why I prefer not to talk about it.”

Tickets for the July 13 concert go on sale to the general public on March 20.
