The One Thing I Love More Than  Being with You

 

I had never heard a song about bacon before, so naturally I had to listen to Nick Jonas sing about my favorite breakfast food. The music video to this song is a hoot. In it, Nick and his buddies arrive at a diner in the middle of the night. He introduces himself to many of the customers by walking around—and eating their bacon. They let him sit down next to them, and they hand him their forks so he can eat even more of their food. He dances on a table, then helps the cook in the kitchen hurry more and more rashers of bacon to the hungry crowd out front. He takes bacon strips from a couple at one table and tosses them onto the stack of pancakes a lonely old man is eating: the man brightens up. Soon everyone is dancing on tables and in the aisles and eating even more bacon (which they serve crispy). "It's the one thing I love more than being with you," Jonas sings.

 

Turns out, this song is about getting over being dumped. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jonas said that the song is about "that moment when you’re out of a relationship . . .  and you start to realize it’s going to be okay. . . . And life is so good in fact that you should throw bacon on it and make it that much better, because bacon makes everything better."

Nick Jonas has starred in numerous films and television shows. He is currently part of the cast of Scream Queens, in which he plays Boone Clemens, a gay character; and he is a recurring character on Kingdom, in which he plays Nate Kulina, a gay boxer. Jonas told MTV News that if anyone thinks he is actually gay, or if someone calls him gay: "that's very kind."

 

How the world has changed. Somebody must be throwing bacon on it.

 

 

 

 

I photographed the bacon, above, on my kitchen table (22 June 2016). After I was done taking pictures, the cats and I feasted on the props.
