Joe Jonas wanted to hit the road with his childhood crush Britney Spears this summer, but she turned him down in favour of "an all-girl tour".
The Jonas Brothers star is launching himself as a solo artist and hoped to be chosen to join the line-up of Spears' Femme Fatale tour, which kicked off in Sacramento, California on Thursday night.
Jonas missed out and the support slots were given to Nicki Minaj and Jessie J, and he admits he is disappointed as he had a massive crush on Spears in his youth.
He tells E! Online, "At one point we were considering that (touring with Spears). But they wanted to go with an all-girl tour, which is really understandable. Nicki Minaj is fantastic…"
Jonas adds, "The first CD that I ever bought was Britney Spears… I fell in love with her. It was an early crush for me."
Joe is now over in Europe promoting his single "See No More."
What was the first CD you ever bought?
