Joe Jonas has a new gig


Joe Jonas has a new gig

Twitter user @lindseyfarwell ordered a Uber ride to Pinkberry with her MySpace coworker, Lee Mills, on Jan. 16 in Los Angeles. Twenty minutes later, Joe Jonas, pop star and one-third of the now broken-up Jonas Brothers, pulled up as their Uber driver.

"I was about ready to bail, but our car finally arrived and Lindsey dragged me downstairs. Lo and behold, the driver was none other than Joe Jonas. What!? This has to be a joke or a trick, right?," passenger Mills later wrote on his MySpace blog. "After a few awkward moments of total confusion, Joe (I feel like we’re on a first-name basis), Lindsey and I hopped in his Mini Cooper."

Mills added, "I noticed the official Uber iPhone rig on his dashboard, so this had to be somewhat official, at the very least. And even if it wasn’t, when Joe Jonas opens the door and tells you to get in the car, you listen."

After getting a ride from their "funny as h*ll" and "charming" Jonas Brother, Farwell and Mills subsequently invited him to join them, and he took them up on their frozen yogurt with strawberries offer.

An Uber source confirmed with E! News that, "Joe is officially a driver on the UberX platform, which is our low-cost, eco-friendly vehicle type. He went through all the onboarding, and went through the system to be verified as a driver on the platform. He's gotten high ratings. He's a great driver."

Rumor has it that Jonas is working on a viral video and that this stunt will all become clear in about six weeks.
