Priyanka Chopra Felt Really Guilty for Leaving Nick Jonas Hanging at the VMAs

“Just seeing his face, I felt like, ‘Ugh.’”

  • Priyanka Chopra explained why she skipped the 2019 MTV VMAs even though the Jonas Brothers were nominated for six awards.
  • She photoshopped herself into a pic of Nick, Joe, Kevin, Danielle Jonas, and Sophie Turner.

It’s been a couple of weeks since the Jonas Brothers partied at the MTV VMAs like it was 1999 2007, but fans still aren’t done processing how Priyanka Chopra skipped the awards show and left Nick Jonas hanging. When the JoBros won the award for Best Pop Video, the cameras panned to Joe Jonas kissing Sophie Tuner and Kevin Jonas kissing Danielle Jonas. Nick was also there. Predictably, everyone on the internet started poking fun at how Nick was a fifth wheel and wondered why Priyanka wasn’t there, since she always supports them.

Now, Priyanka is here to explain her absence and why she photoshopped herself into that Instagram picture to make Nick feel better. She told Entertainment Tonight that she actually had a really good reason to miss the show and the group date they all planned for after the ceremony. She said:


She joked, “That’s the reason why I love technology. It doesn’t matter if I was there or not. The picture makes it look like I was and the internet would believe it.”

Okay, not totally sure if anyone actually believed this photo, but this picture had to have made Nick feel a little better.
