Last yr, Nick Jonas pointed out that whereas Drake has the “Drake curse,” which apparently causes groups and athletes that affiliate with him to do poorly, Jonas has an reverse form of factor occurring. He observed what he dubbed the “Jonas blessing,” a development of athletes — Patrick Mahomes, Cody Bellinger, and Lewis Hamilton — occurring to have nice success after having some form of involvement with him and the Jonas Brothers.
He spoke about that on The Tonight Show yesterday, joking with Jimmy Fallon that he’s desirous about charging athletes to get blessed:
“It’s quite simple, you know? In reality, what happened is when the brothers back together — we went on tour, the Happiness Begins tour, back in 2019 — we had a number of athletes, high-performing athletes, come out to some shows. So the first was Cody Bellinger, who then went on to win the World Series with the Dodgers, right? We had Patrick Mahomes, who in the 2020 Super Bowl won the Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs. He came to a show in KC. And then Lewis Hamilton, who surpassed the all-time record, he went on to, after he came to a show, to do that. So basically, we established, and I think it was really me more than the brothers that… I saw the trend, I was saying, ‘We’re going to have to start charging these athletes.’ If they want the ‘Jonas blessing,’ to come to a show and then go on to win a championship, they’re going to have to pay up, you know?”
He then added, “Little-known fact, too, Jimmy, is that Tom Brady, we actually did a private COVID-safe show for Tom Brady before the Super Bowl and that’s why [he won].”
