While we took it upon ourselves to compile the 10 hottest photos of Joe Jonas ever earlier this month, the “See No More” singer has gone and added more dapper pics to the mix via his Paper cover shoot. The 21-year-old Jo Bro is one of three alternating artists fronting the mag’s summer music issue, where he discusses his upcoming album Fastlife. “I don’t mean to name-drop, but about a year-and-a-half ago I met Bono, and he told me to write music that was really honest, to not be afraid to go there,” Jonas tells the mag. You don’t say? Turns out the U2 frontman isn’t the only one wielding an influence on the handsome star; he also praises Justin Timberlake when similarities are pointed out between Fastlife and JT’s debut solo album Justified.

“He’s absolutely an inspiration,” Joe says. “I look up to Justin so much. He pretty much created his own lane.”

There’s mention in the Paper writeup that Joe and Nick recently lunched with Mick Fleetwood while vacationing in Hawaii (sorry, Rumours fans — he doesn’t really elaborate). But as interesting as that sounds, let’s face it — we all just want to jump into these pictures.

So have at it!
