In honor of the 10-year anniversary of the Jonas Brothers’ breakout self-titled album (their first with Hollywood Records), we’re celebrating with a week full of JoBros features for our readers.
When it comes to Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas, it’s safe to say the former bandmate bros have legit transformed into new humans since their Jonas Brothers days. However, I like to believe that all the useless information I have about the boys didn’t go to waste. Back in their prime, I was basically a fountain of Jonas knowledge. And now, I’m digging up all those random Jo Bros facts I have stored up there – so please, join me for a little walk down memory lane.
Their name was originally supposed to be “Sons of Jonas” or “J3” – but they were so not having it.
Joe confessed, “I’ll never forget our first concert: We were named J3—and we hated the name. It felt like something a boy band would be called. I remember turning to my brothers before that show and saying, ‘Do you want our name to be J3 for the rest of our lives?’ When we got onstage, I was the one to announce to the crowd, ‘Hey, we’re the Jonas Brothers.’ Nice and simple.”
Kevin’s actual first name is Paul.
It’s true. “Paul Kevin Jonas II” is what reads on the oldest Jonas’ birth certificate.
They have an unreleased song called “Kung Fu Grip” that is a total jam and so incredibly underrated.
The lyrics “Just like a G.I. Joe,” totally foreshadowed Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid‘s ship name.
They were low-key web stars on the side, always coming out with the craziest skits and most bizarre interviews.
Who could forget Joe’s alter ego, DJ Danger?
Kevin can do this really weird thing with his thumb.
It’s important to know.
They recorded their entire third album “A Little Bit Longer” on a bus while on tour.
In the clip above, they ~enthusiastically~ tell us about it.
Joe looks really good in a leotard.
He is Beyoncé always.
If the Jonas Brothers didn’t happen, Kevin would have been a barista.
“I am blessed that I get to do this thing I love to do and if I wasn’t doing this I’d probably be working at Starbucks. So the fact that I get to travel around on a tour bus all around the country is pretty awesome,” he said.
Nick is legit great at sports.
Is there anything he can’t do?
We’ll be posting exclusive JoBros posters, articles, and more for Jonas Brothers Week over on our J-14+ Facebook group. Join for a safe space to obsess over celebs the same way you did when you were 14.
