Celebrity sightings of the Jonas Brothers were the buzz among shoppers at The Mall at Short Hills on Sunday. The teen pop stars had tweeted they’d be there, and sure enough, Joe and Nick, were true to their tweet in Bloomingdale’s.
And that was sweet for fans who dropped everyting (including dinner on the stove, one NJ mom said) to get to the mall.
Photos of fans with the stars were soon up on social media sites like Oceanup.com, a teen site for celebrity news with the latest for fans: “
Photos of fans with the stars were soon up on social media sites like Oceanup.com, a teen site for celebrity news with the latest for fans: “… when someone told us that the Jonas Brothers were in Bloomingdale's. We sprinted there as fast as we could and then we saw Big Rob. He told us that Nick and Joe were in the changing room. We went over there and we asked for a picture. They were so nice and flawless."
Indeed, lots of cameras and security were at Bloomingdale’s around noon when Regina Truitt, a mom and Millburn school board member, went shopping. Later, she went back to Bloomies and discovered who all that security was for.
“I found out that I had 'just missed' the Jonas Brothers,” she said. “The sales ladies were very excited.” Truitt said she wouldn’t have been able to tell which brother was which if she had seen them, but when she went home and told her teen daughter who she heard was at the mall, her daughter already knew the answer.
“It was immediately on Facebook,” Truitt said. Apparently, “One of her Facebook friends posted on her Facebook page that her Mom saw them.”
The biggest fans knew they could be there, of course, because Nick Jonas "tweeted" that they might go birthday shopping in Short Hills for their sister-in-law, Dani.
