Joe Jonas wants to be the tallest man in the world.

The 5 foot 9 inch tall singer - who performs alongside his siblings Kevin and Nick in The Jonas Brothers - has lofty ambitions for himself but admits he is unlikely to reach his goal.

He said: "I'd like to be the tallest person in the world. I'm working on it, but I'm not sure I'll grow much more."

The pop hunk also admits he wanted to work with animals or a "travelling spy boat" when he was younger.

He revealed: "I really wanted to work with animals when I was younger, or be a captain of a boat, maybe a travelling spy boat! I think music is working out though."

He also reveals he has developed a passion for soccer and would like to go and watch David Beckham play at some point.

He said: "Soccer's started to take off more in the States after the World Cup. We want to go to an La Galaxy game and see Beckham."
