At last night’s Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus concert there was an opening act called The Jonas Brothers. They are a trio of modern-day, slightly-punkish-yet-Donny Osmondesque, teen boys, who were met with ear-piercing screams from 15,000 girls. That’s one thing that will never change. Whether it’s Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, or for crying out loud…even Leif Garrett…there will always be screaming girls.
But, one thing was very different. Because, as The Jonas Brothers gathered together to sing a slow song, they didn’t ask the audience to pull out our lighters and hold them up in the air. They asked us to pull out our cell phones.
