Channel Guide Magazine did an interesting interview with the Camp Rock
cast where they spilled plot and character details.
CG: How was it determined you got the lead role?
Joe Jonas: It was determined through an auditioning process. I auditioned
first for the role of Shane. They worked the movie to work better as a band
because, as you know, it's different for us to work maybe alone, so we wanted to
keep it together, of course. It's very cool to be Connect Three in the movie.
CG: What was the message of Camp Rock?
Joe: It's a really amazing message that all kids can relate to. Everyone,
I think, goes to camp or something like camp or even like school, where you
realize how you are trying to fit in with the cool crowd. I know I did when I was growing up. Even at camp, I definitely wanted to hang out with the cool kids. The movie shows you can be who you are. You can hang out with the friends you are comfortable with.
Kevin Jonas: For us, it's about staying true to who you are as a person.
Never giving in to that.
CG: What can you relate to about the theme of this movie?
Demi Lovato: The theme of the movie is to be yourself and not worry about
being popular. That's what I had to worry about in middle school. I was always
worried about being popular. Wow, if I had a chance to do it over again, I'd so
rather be a nerd than be popular, it's so much less stressful and you can be
CG: Tell us about the character of Tess.
Meaghan Jette Martin: I'm the meanie. I'm pretty bad. I'm kind of afraid
people won't like me after the movie. Demi's character wants to be my friend,
because my character is the popular girl, so she lies because she wants to
become a part of my group. I find out she's lying and I, basically, bring her
CG: We were sure that we'd see a kiss between Mitchie (Demi) and Shane
(Joe), what happened?
Joe: You know, it was so funny. It was rumored that there was a kiss in
the movie, but there's no kiss. Demi does a great job. I definitely did practice
my acting, not so much a kiss, but definitely the acting because it was so
different for us.
Demi: I don't know, you'll have to find out. Maybe there's outtakes.
CG:How have your siblings and friends reacted to your role?
Meaghan: Oh, they don't care [referring to her siblings]. I still live in
Vegas. It's been hard though; a lot of people who never were really all that
nice to me before, all of a sudden want to be my best friend. So it's been a
little difficult to make sure everyone has the right intentions. My best
friends, of course, are totally normal about it. They just like the fact that
they can go to Jonas concerts and get good seats.
Blonde beauty Ashley Tisdale spilled High School Musical 3 secrets to
Dish of Salt! She also told J-14, "Sharpay is close to everybody now, but
she still has a villainous side."
Corbin Bleu added about his on screen relationship with Monique
Coleman, "Chad has put basketball in between the two of them. She tells him,
'Look, you need to ask me properly to go out with you.' Chad just assumes that
they're going to go together. She really puts him in his place."
Here's a new twist: "Bet On It" in Hindi:
